They actually pulled off Aoi "dying" in a remarkably good manner. I'm impressed.

... I just want the music playing during that scene now, though. It was SO GOOD. Second OST... come on....!!

The first marvelously decent episode. Now all we need is some saving by Chie and I will be pleased.

I've been pondering why Sergay had such serious injuries consider that he stopped Erstin's child with no more than ripped clothes, the explosion shouldn't have been that bad for him. Makes me think Nagi's troops or even Nina had to use more than a little force to stop him.

Concerning the question about "who let's a 12 year old take complete authority?"

If you think that's bad, back in the Three Kingdoms era of China, the last heir of the Shu Kingdom was a mentally retarded cripple which led to their downfall.

And now back to Otome:
That kid that Midori was hugging in that screenshot is friggin' lucky. He gets a close-up of her cleavage.

And speaking of which, do any of you suppose that Nina is the Otome's version of HiME's Shiho? I willing to bet that any mention of Arika will turn her into a murderous psychopath.

i think what aoi did was the most- unselfish act of kindness a human being could do .. its really incrediable, and i understand why she would do such a sacrafice.. because Mashiro was liek a sister and she truly loved her aww makes me want to Cry.

Btw i think Arika would give up her life, she's very selfless acaully and she'd without realizing would take a death blow for Mashiro.

Kourin! Where did you get your avatar? I love that!

I could imagine that Mashiro being a spoiled brat (Ok, she actually is) because she has no parents or a higher authority to teach her something like that. Arika grew up with her grandma. Real or not is not an issue here because Arika believed that she is and she treated Arika liked her granddoughter. I think that made a lot of difference.

If Arika had raised in a palace without her parents, I think she would have become like Mashiro most likely.

And, Aoi.....

Well, currently Arika would never sacrifice her life for obvious reasons. She'd be pretty stupid to do that.

That IS her problem, she acts first, think later.

Only after she took a fatal blow for someone else will she realize that Mashiro will die with her.

This is the first episode I give a 10. Better than episode 17, some flashbacks, great Mashiro character development, and OMG WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO AOI!!!???

Mai-Otome 18 out from Doremi-fansubs.

Great episode, the latter half was well done indeed. It seems that I'll may be right about...

Don't get me wrong...I loved this ep...

How could they pick out and recognize a cloaked Aoi and not Mashiro?

Something I've been wondering about: When Yamada (I think that's his name) told Natsuki that there would be a fee for his information, something that came to mind was that the fee would be busting out Sergay.

Just a bit of wild speculation.

8 out of 10 : Very Good

BTW Aoi is not dead, no body what so ever if there's no body that means she ain't dead.

As for the rest of episode I will give my input after I watch the subbed version. The best thing was that there was almost no Arika.
Dude, I love you.
I agree 100%, excepted I watched the sub version directly.
Actually I won't begin to like Mashiro no matter how many people sunrise will kill for her (that was the purpose for the magical Aoi's appearence + identification:
how on earth can Mashiro be unidentified and some "bodyguard" of her can't)

I'm quite dissatisfied with the last two episodes, after an amazing 16th where I had to do a 3 minute pause right after the OP.

Anyway I liked this 3 day hole: maybe it will make interesting things turn up later in the series.

P.S. Why do they keep making fun of Haruka and depict her as a total moron? Her brief appearance did not seem funny at all, IMHO.
Can't really say...

"Muero con mi patria"

I am speachless,aoi's death was very well done.
Mashiro trying to say something but incapable of talking was excellent.I could reallly tell exactly how she was feeling and what she was thinking.It was great drama,I can't understand the people who laughed at that scene.It's unusual to see anime characters (or all characters) paralysed by fear,it really suprised me.
Aoi is dead IMO,I know that since GS I can't be 100% sure but showing her body would ruin the scene.It's more powerful when you don't see it because you're brain do the rest.
Her sacrifice was impressive,her motivation clear.great and so sad

When Miyu explains the origin of her name, what do you think she may be referring to?

9 out of 10 for me
Aoi death is most touching scene in MO so far.
Sunrise do good job in this Episode.
Hope we got more drama !!

after watch subbed version
the next espisode is "Fateful 17-year-old (^^")" ??
I bet that refer to Midori. She is always 17 year old since MH

and from what Mashiro and Arika talk in preview.
look like we'll have some clue about Arika's Grandma in next esp.
hope this don't mean Midori is Arika's grandma.
IMHO that suck big time

If young Arika had kept refering to Midori as "Grandma" while she grew up, I doubt she'd have reached the age of 14.
