These specials are 2-3 minutes long episodes about random things happening in the world of Mai-Otome (and Mai-Hime too). They aren't important to the overall plot at all.
If you enjoyed the main series and you want more material, this will be a enjoyable watch. All of the important characters appear in comedy skits and we also have some sexy fanservice (but not full nude bodies). Characters from Mai-Hime appearing was a sight for sore eyes for me for I liked them more than their counterparts from Mai-Otome, they don't do much though, only some random talk and 4th wall breaks. Alyssa Searrs (and she has
lines) and Miyu are in one episode, that should bring back nostalgia.
The episodes are fully animated, it's not a picture drama. The funny situations made me smile but it's not a comedy masterpiece, it's a bit silly sometimes. I guess only the franchise fans will appreciate this anime and its inside jokes.
I recommend it to all Mai-Hime and Otome lovers but don't expect too much out of it, take it as it is and have fun watching it, it's not a waste of time.
