Whoa, dreamless, that looks awesome!

You're completely right, Natsuki REALLY needs a power upgrade I feel really sorry for her. She's getting totally shunned. Perhaps because she is most distant from the 1st Division? Or is she really hiding a lot of her power? (I REALLY hope she's not as weak as it seems)...

Wow. Mai-Hime seems to have quite an enormous fanbase.

What would be a fan's opinion of what distinguishes this from any other magical girl anime series? I mean, just as a question.

If anyone has high quality scans of Mai-Hime, send me a PM please. The only scans I've seen so far are small and really poor quality, which makes the kind hard to work with if you know what I mean....

It's much more action-oriented than your average magical-girl show. And there isn't any transformation scene (minus Midori... lol ).

In fact I never thought about MH as a magical girl show until your question, but much more as a kind of girls-only "Scryed", with lots of funs and interesting characters.

I mean, Mikoto for example... sure neko-girls are maybe a little overused, especially this season, but how could you not laught when she goes on rampage ? ^^

completely agree, I think Mai-HiME so far looks more or less a shounen hot blood fighting show, just replace the shounen part with shoujo but then I guess maybe one can say that shows like Saint Seiya, Dragonball and Scryed are "magical boy shows"?

It's true that St Seiya *does* features transformations...
I should really block this mental image of Seiya or San Goku in sailor-fuku, or else I'm going to have nightmares, this night...

and the legendary otaku kj1980 says his catch phrase in the mai hime forums... care to translate?

and as for the "magical girl" question, sure Mai hime looks like a mahou shoujo, but it's fulled with ecchi and it's by sunrise, so i woudn't put it under that genre. More like comedy, drama, romance, school, superpowers..

gawd i want to kill nagi...

There's absolutely nothing wrong with the plot development in Mai Hime. The story is told bit by bit, at a very nice pace.

But to answer your question - yes, MAJOR plot development in the second half of Ep8.

PS: Why do you want to kill Nagi? Did you watch ep8 yet? If anything, this episode proved that he is _not_ just a coldhearted smart aleck.

About it being like a magical girl show. Sure it has some elements that are similar but it adds enough more original parts and hardly following the "classic" rules of magical girl shows thus making it something of it's own.

You could also say it's like Digimon with the difference that the 'trainers' also participate in the fights.
For some reason I love the materializing scenes of the CHILDs, how it's done different for each of them. I really like when Kagutsuchi shows up. Then again, I loved the summons when I played FF7 ages ago, and I think they are somewhat similar. Heck, Kagutsuchi could've been taken from a FF game. Organic creature with mechanical parts in it like the two power generators.

How is it filled with ecchi? Maybe I'm not sensitive enough but I don't think it's filled with it. Love Love is filled of it, Najika is as and so is Girls Bravo. But My-HiME? Not in my opinion. It may have scene her and there like the windscene with Natsuki. But please don't say it's filled with it. The comic has more of it though, as can be seen here .

Fair enough...I'll revise it in a more hardcore way (in which at the same time I will be digging my own grave).

I can tell at least one of the people here can honestly claim to be a real Japanese.

But that "real Japanese" forgot to use SPOILER tags, didn't s/he. *ahem* *scowl* Some of us haven't seen everything yet.

So when does Mai-Hime air in Japan, if it is currently airing? Monday nights?

It airs on six different channels, TV Tokyo was the first with it airing it on Thursdays.

Yep, I would tend to agree with you. Even ep 4 which some people said was the epitome of fan-service in anime wasn't much more than another "underwear robbery" episode in the grand tradition of Ranma's Happosai or City Hunter's Ryo Saeba.

Fan-service-wise, I am sure we all have seen worse. Far worse.

Thanks a lot kj for the Japanese bit, it was quite helpful.
