Rosegirl18's My-Otome Tv Review


Rated: 9

Mai Otome's general presentation is good, although not excellent. The plot is well done and is creative, but some developements are not made. Also, the producers use characters from Mai Hime, which causes continuous comparisons and references to the two series, making the two never complete on its own. Otome would never have made sense without the former series, Hime, which makes it look too much of something like an OVA or a sequel. Overall, however, I felt that Otome was better on terms of switching between different genres throughout the series. It was quick to come back when it went into dramatic and angsty mode, and continued to try to maintain a balance between the comedic and the more serious tones.

Kawaiiguy's My-Otome Tv Review


Rated: 6

Thus far, My-Otome hasn't completely impressed me. It's a fun show to watch, but doesn't contain much content. I'm interested to see where the story will go, as well as what other twists are in store. Who knows, perhaps the second half of the series will pick up in much the same way HiME did. I certainly hope so. At this juncture, Otome is entertaining at best. There's been a lot of fan service and suggestiveness about the nature of the characters.

Coincidentally, My-Otome is also an interesting play on words. Where "hime" was Japanese for "princess," "otome" is the Japanese for "maiden." As My-HiME could be read as "my princess," My-Otome could be read as "my maiden." This reading also seems play into the responsibilities of an Otome.
