I was fan of Mai since Eternal Fighter Zero but, seriously, her line against the president raised the respect I held for her character even more.
One small mistake from KyoAni?
If I remember right, in the highschool, female freshmen are supposed to wear a greenish ribbon. If Mai and Sayuri were on their first HS year in the flashback, shouldn't their ribbon be of the mentionned color? Just like Amano's?
