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.

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.

This manga is decent enough in terms of action and overarching plot. The action is decently well developed in terms of power and mechanics, though it moves quickly enough and is over too quickly to really begin adding any complexity. The plot in regards to the conflict with the orphans keeps things moving well enough, but it is quite a bit generic. In terms of characters there's a pretty large set for how short the manga was, and though I think that it does create a lot of good characters, beyond the main three most only get trifles in terms of development, and though their short side stories ...

With a name like “Mai-HIME,” you would have thought this series would fulfill all of the reader’s wildest dreams about princesses. I came in expecting to get my very own princess in a neat little box. I was disappointed. Well, to save you the disappointment I suffered, please enjoy this review.

I came into this series expecting a decent harem-fighter. What I got was that, a little bit more and at the same time, a lot less.

You see, Mai-HIME’s central problem lies in its awkward pacing. Some of the earlier, less important fights last a few chapters, while later fights with significant build-up (*coughmaingirlshowdowncough*) ...
