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.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (26/44 eps)
At the time of writing I have read 3 volumes.

I have to say that I was scared by the start of this manga. I loved the anime and this was so different and fan-servicey that it scared me. I persevered and so far I am glad I did. The fan service has died down and the plots are coming together.

It seems like the plots are coming one after the other rather than one arc. That kinda gives me the feeling that they weren't sure where they were going. But apart from that feeling of uncertainty it seems to be going ok.

The characters (if I stop ...

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*) ...
