Yuuichi Tate is overjoyed: He gets to go to a brand new high school. Of course, then he just happens to find out the school he choose is under frequent attack by strange creatures called ''Orphans'', and the school set up a special task force of female members called ''HiME''s, using various elements as their powers, to battle these invaders. That's not all, though. Each member of the HiME task force has their own, unique ''Key'', another person whom, upon being discovered, can team up with the HiME to create a ''Child'', a combative unit specifically needed to effectively battle these Orphans. And with Yuuichi's luck, he just happens to find out he's not just the ''Key'' for one of the HiMEs, but for two... Two highly competitive, rival schoolgirls. And that's only the start of the trouble.

At the time of writing I have read 3 volumes.

I have to say that I was scared by the start of this manga. I loved the anime and this was so different and fan-servicey that it scared me. I persevered and so far I am glad I did. The fan service has died down and the plots are coming together.

It seems like the plots are coming one after the other rather than one arc. That kinda gives me the feeling that they weren't sure where they were going. But apart from that feeling of uncertainty it seems to be going ok.

I just re-read this manga last week and it was still amazing, originally the anime came out first for this series. Thing about this series is that the manga and anime are completely different so you don't feel that your going through the same thing on paper all over again.

Unlike the anime, the manga focuses on Yuuichi Tate while the anime focuses on Mai Tokhia. Being a guy I found that I could relate more to the manga then to the anime regardless the anime did bring in good insights to Yuuichi Tate when called upon, it just felt that the anime read more

Manga: Freezing
Super powered girls get stronger after meeting guy. lots of battles and ecchi.

Manga: VITA Sexualis
Both are, guess what, shounen manga filled with action and ecchi & illustrated by Kenetsu Sato. 
reportRecommended by RenaPsychoKiller
Manga: Seikon no Qwaser
Both have the great art of Kenetsu Sato, and are shounen series of the ecchi/action/supernatural genre.
Seikon No Qwaser is overall better, more mature, and more interesting than Mai-Hime, though.

Manga: El Cazador
If you enjoy yuri, girls with guns, magic powers, and manga adaptations gone horribly naughty, then the Mai Hime manga is for you! Like the El Cazador manga, the Hime manga is over-the-top ecchi on every level. Both manga and anime have guns, magic, heavy yuri and nice art. Different plots from the anime in both instances are nice changes for different story lines.
