MORE HIME REVEALED

"Mai Tokiha is getting more used to life at Fuka Academy, even if she still has to wake up every morning with Mikoto clinging to her breasts! In addition to looking out for Mikoto and working a part-time job as a waitress, she also has to keep on eye on her sickly brother, Takumi. Along with all this goes the additional pressure of being a Hime, a role which Mai is struggling to reject. She just wants to be a normal high school student. But events are shaping her destiny that are beyond her control. As she faces a lethal battle with an Orphan, Midori, her co-worker, reveals herself as a Hime, and saves her life. Midori, unlike Mai relishes her powers, almost too much....She seems to enjoy it like a cosplayer...but at least she's having fun...too bad she's an alcoholic! Even though she says she's only 17, she's a bit older. Some other Hime also join the cast, some with a more negative bent than others, who use their powers to serve their own sense of justice instead of battling to save the world.
Volume 2 of My-Hime further deepens not only the plot but the characters. The Hime seem to be wrestling with what to do with their powers. Whether to serve unknown agents and be controlled, use the power for selfish reasons, or to simply ignore them! Mai, at this point, wants to forget the whole problem and just get on with her life. But she isn't going to get her wish. The plot is still a little fuzzy, but gives just enough info to refrain from being frustrating. At this early stage, the writers are concentrating more on building up the characters. In terms of animation, this series is pretty top-notch, and the characters are realistically designed with a sexy edge. My-Hime is a keeper!"

". . . Be prepared for a problem with episode 7. I've owned four different discs of volume 2. Episodes 5, 6, and 8 play fine but episode 7 won't play at all, it's so pixilated. It makes following the otherwise intriguing storyline (and great animation)difficult."
