Mai Otome is one of my favorite Anime. The Story is wonderful but lacking, many substories are missing and not mentioned in the series but the good thing is that they are releasing/released prequel (Mai Otome 0~sfir) and Sequel (Mai Otome Zwei) where the story becomes clearer as more and more details are revealed.The art is good, the costumes are exotic but not often found in the series maybe due to the civil environment. Vibrant colours though.The sound tracks used are great some are memorable especially the ending theme but sometimes you need to concentrate more on slower tempo tracks which reflects the mood of the scene.2 Mai Otome characters got a in my character Fav.Arika Yumemia, well this character can easily top your characters favorites (it already hit the top spot in my charac fav). The first 13 episodes are fascinating where you can see Arika's wonderful personality. The Overall character development is very good actually especially with characters such as Nagy and shizuru (Spot in the charac Fav).Enjoyment: The first time i've seen it I was really absorbed to the max for a month, you won't believe that (this might sound eccentric) I had dreams about Mai Otome and Couldn't wait to see the next episode (at that time I forced a 1 Episode/day limit on Anime in order to enjoy them the most).Overall I recommend all of you to enjoy this series which is filled with excitement, fun, pain, action, real life lessons, deepness , principles and values(A Must See Anime Rank: Masterpiece)
