I like Mai otome more, My hime tries to mind fck with you and that's a turn off.

That's your opinion and I respect it. I'm not saying Mai-Otome is bad though (again, my opinion) I'm just saying that it can't compare to Mai-HiME. Also, Mai makes a better lead character than Arika

I dunno one uses a real world school setting and introduces the story elements and what not into it from that direction. The other uses a fantasy world academy setup.

Pacing, characters,situations are "the same but different." Now if you got into the meat of it I feel Otome has a better plot and perhaps better character....er...izations where as Hime might has more polished pacing and story elements but not a really solid plot.

Though I kept waiting for the dark prince and his "de otome'ing"minions to drop in on Otomes world and really start with the plot warping. LOL

I still like the sword loli for hime the most,emo loli in otome is a close 2nd

And damn now I need to rewatch both ><

I think I wouldn't have hated Otome as much if they just made it an entirely new story so it wouldn't have to live up to Hime.

I think the main problem was that the Otome versions of the characters weren't nearly as intruiging as their Hime counterparts-- they almost seem like caricatures and I couldn't take it seriously. Also, it seemed like the series tried to get serious with it's more complex plot, but it just utterly fell flat because of the above.

So yea, I think it would have done ok as its own show. I actually thought the new leads Arika and Nina were ok, but everyone else was kinda just like showing up randomly to do cool stuff and disappearing. -_-

As a fan of the franchise I say both are great though Mai-HiME still remains my favourite. But I heard the director saying that he prefers Mai-Otome perhaps because it makes more sales? So that should explain why Mai-Otome spawned an OVA consisting of a four episode sequel and a three episode prequel. I know people who wish that a direct sequel to Mai-HiME should be made instead.

Considering that they've made way more of Otome, I guess it has been selling better.

Oh, and I suppose I worded my last post kind of strong. While I don't like Otome, it's far from the worst anime imo. At least it has a great soundtrack.

Kinda funny though, that the simpler story of HiME offers more depth and impact.

The whole series is great in my opinion!

And I agree with you on the soundtracks too! With the exception of Mai-Otome 0~S.ifr~ since the soundtracks for that OVA weren't done by Yuki Kajiura. I'm not saying its bad but it lacks the feel Yuki Kajiura's scores put into both Mai-HiME, Mai-Otome and Mai-Otome Zwei.

Ah yes, Yuki Kajiura does some very good work with music. Hah, apparently she also did the soundtrack for .hack sign, a series that I mentioned earlier in this thread that I hate. Well, I assure you it was the excellent music that kept me going.

Her music is awesome! They should have used her soundtracks for Mai-Otome 0~S.ifr~

Anyways, we seem to be talking alot on the Mai-Series now are we?

Yes, I'm afraid we're being too positive for this thread.

True that...

Anyways, as I mentioned before the anime that I really started to hate is Naruto because its way too overrated. I feel that the fans (a.k.a. The Narutards) are overhyping the series making it sound like its the greatest anime there is. I mean, it annoys me whenever I ask someone who like anime which anime he watches he would say Naruto and kept yakking on and on about why its great. But I do know that not all Naruto fans are like that too. In fact, I think ShizNat is getting way too overrated too...

Well, every show has its "tards" I guess. I thought Naruto before Shippuden was ok, nothing particularly offensive. But the newer ones just look absolutely like crap. I usually don't complain about art quality, but man.

I have nothing against Naruto, but its after the Narutards started overrating it that I got sick of it. There are people who told me why they think Naruto is good and that is fine by me. But not when people said "Naruto is the best" and not giving reasons. In fact, there are cases where people are overhyping it even before watching the series! Can you believe that? lol

Meh IMO Hime falls apart where as Otome drags on some... .

---------------

About naruto...I dunno the only bad things about naruto are the fillers the rest of it is good, but I would not call it great, There are good points to it bleach and one piece. And bridy decode 2 had much worse art than Naruto shippuden dose.....

Lets see I don't care for EVA and its broken plot and poor attempts at shocking content and anything else that's in that vain of lite depressing story and heavy on the gore/shock.

Though I have to admit....if cleaned up and the last half redone EVA could make for a fairly good series...

I use to agree with you about Eva at first glance it seems like such a thrown together anime but after rewatching it and spending god knows how many hours reading things about EVA it all starts to make sense starts being the key word cause that anime is still on my top 5 of mind F**Ks.

But I can't ever hate it totally with Asuka being in it that just makes the series for me ten times better.

I usually don't hate many animes but there are a select few I find boring or really just bad.

As for Some bad ones I've seen besides the bleach,Naruto,One Piece over explot of eps that drag on the series and make them boring with to many filler arcs. I'd have to say Rave master was done horribley and seeing it on Scifi again makes me weep cause the manga was so good they ruined it.

Also lame works like Hamtaro and SD Gundam OH gosh I don't even know why I mentioned them.

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I like hamtaruo......
I know I know I fail LOL

Rave master,Chrono crusade, Shadow of Oblivion(sp?) were so so but I would not call them horrible.

The EVA anime is still bad ,well the last half anyway so is grantz it just dose not compute with me, I found chaos head to be boring.

I guess I also pick on EVA because its so loved...and I am like WTF..... then again people liked the Transformers,cat woman and GI joe films......

I guess the only anime I really hate for story and stuff is hentai 0-o

Naruto is definitely overrated, there is no denying that but I don't think it's the worst ever. In fact, if Naruto had no fillers, it becomes quite a solid show to watch.
