"An overlooked masterpiece that deserves a lot more attention."

I watched Mai HiME long before joining MAL so I didn't know what to say when I first saw the overall rating to be so low. Thus I decided to re-watch the show this past week to refresh my memory and to prepare for this review. If there is one thing my opinion changed about this anime since my first time watching it a few years back, it is the quality of the animation which we will get to in a moment. One short recommendation before we begin the review, get lots of tissue paper when you read more

Mai-HiME sports the story of Tokiha Mai and her brother Takumi as they enter the prestigious Fuuka Gakuen. As the viewer, you're introduced in the first episode to several "HiME's" - girls with the power to materialize their own individual equipment.

Characters include the 13 HiME's, each with a distinct personality and Child - a sort of mecha guardian. Each HiME also has one special person, very important in her life. That makes a main cast of 39 (or 26 if you don't include Childs). From here, there's several more main characters related to the plot as well as quite a few sub-characters. Sounds confusing, read more

I have managed, in complete fruitless productivity of my time, to sit down and watch this series repeatedly, approximately 5 times, excluding the very first time I watched it. I had seen a small article in Anime Insider on series' that were slowly becoming growingly popular, and decided that after seeing many dedications of fanfiction and fanart made toward this series, that I'd give it a shot. It takes a lot to get me to sit down and risk any possibility of wasted time watching television, but I was certainly not disappointed.

At first, it seemed to me that I was getting dragged into read more

They should have named this anime Angst-HiME.

We are given the story of pretentious Mai Tokiha, who goes to a school she can barely afford so that she can mope and pretend to be a loving, hard-working sister who takes care of her terminally ill brother (who should just die, since he has no purpose whatsoever other than to be paedo-yaoi fodder). There in the illustrious Fuka Academy, she meets the ultra-loser Tate, who is a pervert with bipolar tendencies and suffers from a chronic case of 'no personality'. She learns she is a HiME, thus she is given awesome power to control a giant read more
