Otome Zwei - Anyone notice...

Did anybody notice that...
Spoiler for story:


I'm still puzzled about the relations of the two series. Sometimes I get the feeling that they're related, and sometimes I feel that the creators are just inserting random easter eggs.

What do you think?

My Hime and My Otome are 2 different shows, same characters different universes. Think Tenchi, and you'll get the idea.

Otome Zwei takes place a short while after My Otome, which is why they seem related. It's basicly a continuation of the series. That said i hate OVA's cause they make us wait months for a release >.<

What's up with Mai Hime Destiny? Found at http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=48434 . It includes both Mai & Arika.

To be honest that thread confused the hell out of me, plus its spoiler infested so i didnt read to deep into it. From what ive found out Destiny is a new novel(s?). No solid evidence its going to be made into an anime yet, or atleast none on any of the usual sites.

Until i see a proper CM or something though i won't put my hopes up. That said i prefer Mai Otome over HiME. I liked the characters and plot better. HiME was nothing like the manga and since i'd already read the manga i was greatly disapointed.

I originally preferred Mai Hime since they're characters are a lot more mature . Also, it's in the Otome OVA where you get an abundance of fan service that ruins the entire episode.

TBH i didnt really pay much attention to the fanservice. But then once i relised it was an OVA i stopped watching it. I'll wait untill i have all the eps that i can sit down in a marathon run and watch them all at once

Personally, I like to think that they are related. Perhaps Otome takes place long, long after the events of HiME, with the characters being decendants/re-incarnates/freaky lookalkies of the HiME cast.

I love spotting little nods to HiME in the show, so that's probably why I'm in the "shows are related" camp. It's kind of fun to speculate the ties between them, no? And how the HiME goings-on ages ago might be influencing the events in Windbloom and beyond. But that's just me

Well its stated that Mai-otome is an AU to Mai-hime so alot of the stuff in MO is just probably recycled material from MH, but maybe the creators will probably write something in to connect the two stories. The have the necessary materials in MO, now all they need is the perfect story line. As for MH destiny, its a new novel that's another alternate universe to Mai-hime. The new main character in it is a girl named Mayo(the girl with the golden dragon hand cuffs). She transfers to fuka academy that's located in hokkido (hope i spelled that right) The story is kinda like a cross between mai-hime and x-men, seeing as how the school is full of people with "special powers" like mayo and is meant to train the kids as stated by fumi. So far some of the characters from MH have appeared like shizuru, nasuki, chie, aoi, ect and some more are due.

...How could I have not noticed that? XD

Maybe the creators just didn't know what to fill up the last space with so they knocked off an old idea for future use?

man i hope for a second season of Mai Otome instead of an ova... I really do hate OVA's the story doesn't get developed well enough and you have to wait so long for it...

By the way i noticed too that the building looked like the school.. Basically i think they are just inserting random easter eggs..

Also when Mashiro

Think of "Project Homes" i.e. identical homes built from the same architectural blue prints.

The thing in the egg is Kagutsuchi. Nina has Nagi's book, and Kagutsuchi's sword. does this mean that's she's a "hime"???

probably not, there is no hime mark on her anywhere thats why (not before the OAV but still i dont believe so)

however i do believe that there is somehting going on, since she was teleported out.. but a HiME i believe not, it could also be the work of the book that protected her but who knows gues we'll have to wait a long time for that conlusion

as for the egg, yes thats Kagutsuchi and his sword ^^
as for the other plants that spawned all over the plae, i still think that they hold the other Childs
