"If you liked My-Hime, you're gonna love this one, and if you've never watched it you're still gonna enjoy My-Otome regardless, because the stories are not related, so it's perfectly safe to start with this one.
The music and the characters are beautifu and I think the story and the series in general are WAY better than My-Hime. It's kind of weird because some of the original characters are also present in this one, but it's almost as if they were actors playing a different role, because some of them don't even have the same personality.
If you were a fan of Shizuru from My-Hime, I HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU GET THIS ONE. In My-Hime, she didn't have much of an influence on the story until the final episodes, but in this one, she is one of the most important characters and deservedly and effortlessly takes the spotlight on ocasion; just watching Shizuru fight in the first episode is worth the whole $21.99. If you watch your Anime on a good sound system, I suggest you turn the volume all the way up, because the background music during this scene is absolutely mesmerizing, and combined with the sound effects, the art and the animation, will even give you chills; I'm not even joking. If you don't know who Shizuru is, you'll fall in love with her watching this scene alone.
You might as well consider this a 5-star review. I'm not gonna tell you why I gave it 4 stars because first of all, I don't wanna spoil the scene for you, and second of all, it's highly a matter of personal preference, so a normal person probably wouldn't pay attention to it anyway.
The bottom line is: if you're looking for a series with great music, beautiful characters, intense action and a gripping story, don't hesitate to get My-Otome. It has something for everyone."
