This review is going to be more brief, since these specials only last for 1 to 2 minutes a piece.
Basically this is a short bonus that comes at the end of each episode from the Mai-Hime TV series, it really is a worth while watch because it explains a lot of things that were never mentioned in the series, such as character relations/back stories, info on the Orphens (which are the main villains) and tell about the legend of the Hime's themselves. They only last for one to two minutes a piece, but are quite entertaining! And for you echhi fans out there, they
really put on the fan service with these things. The animation and music, like the series itself, is sharp and well detailed. The scenes they show range from dark and moody, to totally off the wall and wacky, to sweet and sincere.
Bottom line: 8/10
If your a fan of the Mai-Hime series, (I linked you to the series itself on top of this review) then you should check them out! They are quite short and brief, but do help fill in the grey areas from the show! I would recommend watching them along side each episode they come after (because more often than not, they base a scene or character that was spotlighted in that particular episode). Just make sure you don't watch them on their own, as its based on knowledge of the series.
