This is the prequel of My-Otome, which predates the events before the My-Otome Series. In this series, it focuses upon the origins of Lena Sayers, the mother of Arika Yumemiya and former bearer of Lofty Crimson Jade / Blue Sky Sapphire GEM, and Sifr Fran, the biological mother of Nina Wáng and the former queen of Windbloom Kingdom, as well as the origins of Schwartz, Aswad, and the Garderobe Academy and its Five Columns. The kidnapping of Sifr and the powerful revelation of Lena's GEM will soon fatefully determine the outcome of the future for themselves and the others around them.

"A marvelous OVA to wrap up the Mai-Otome era."

The following review, while is spoiler free as far as Mai-Otome 0~S.ifr~ is concerned, may contain spoilers for other Mai metaseries. Proceed at your own discretion!

Reviewing OVA can be tricky at times due to their highly condensed materials. Thus it only make sense that there will be slightly different evaluating criteria for them compared to the common anime.

Mai-Otome 0~S.ifr~ is the prequel to the popular Mai-Otome series produced by Sunrise. This OVA elaborates (in great depth) about the origin of many things which results in Mai-Otome including the origins of the Blue Sky Sapphire GEM, Schwartz, Aswad, ...

Mai-Otome 0~S.ifr~ is a prequel OVA of the Mai-Otome series. It is not connected to the main series plot-wise, but rather tells a story about Lena Sayers (Arikia Yumemiya's mother) as she saves Sifr, a young girl, from destructive forces.

Like the other Mai-Otome series, the art is the same. There is little CG effects. Despite this, everything is still sharp and ...

Mixed Feelings
o get the most out of Mai-Otome 0~S.ifr~, or even just to fathom why it could possibly need to have such a confusing title, you really have to have a vested interest in its lineage. Much like how the baby-boomer generation are able to enjoy ABBA only after “growing up with it”, you can only appreciate these later OVA entries in the franchise if you've been groomed into a state of meek compliance by its more charismatic forbears. If you were to just pick it off a shelf and watch it without this crucial requirement of already being a fan of its origin, then you ...
