From Tokyopop:
Yuuichi Tate is overjoyed: He gets to go to a brand new high school. Of course, then he just happens to find out the school he choose is under frequent attack by strange creatures called ''Orphans'', and the school set up a special task force of female members called ''HiME''s, using various elements as their powers, to battle these invaders. That's not all, though. Each member of the HiME task force has their own, unique ''Key'', another person whom, upon being discovered, can team up with the HiME to create a ''Child'', a combative unit specifically needed to effectively battle these Orphans. And with Yuuichi's luck, he just happens to find out he's not just the ''Key'' for one of the HiMEs, but for two... Two highly competitive, rival schoolgirls. And that's only the start of the trouble.

Can't say I like this manga that much. The events that happen in the story are too bizarre and pace of the story is too quick. I was appalled by the drawings which are done very poorly and the ecchiness of itóhow should I say itó was too ecchi. It made me at one point to give up reading this manga somewhere in the first two volumes, but I endure reading to its final volume. I wouldn't say this is a must read manga, but if you are curious about it, then go ahead and read this manga.

Actually, I don't really like this manga, but I appreciate the mangaka's effort in wanting to make this a good manga. But that's where it went wrong: he just put in too much of it! The story was way too fast in terms of development. And the ecchi-ness? Wow, quite a lot. The drawing is quite messy, and I wish it would be more cleaner.

It's an okay read for the weekend, but I would not recommend it for keeping.

First time I've laughed at how horrible a manga is. The first chapter contains:

1) A panty shot
2) A bra shot
3) A chick with a mini-gun
4) A chick who shoots fire
5) A giant metal wolf
6) Already an explanation of how 3-5 work.
7) Another chick yelling "I'll never run away WAAAAHHH".
8) A scene of yet another chick by werewolves? And the main character desperately trying to save her?
9) An emotional conversation about the scar gotten from situation 8)
10) Main character getting pity-points due to being beaten up after saving someone in the past
11) A huge fire bird
12) A touching scene between main character and fire-shooting-chick which creates previously stated bird.

Holy CRAP. Wow. I mean...


I'm not going to go into detail, I hope just listing all those things will make you realize just how hilariously horrible this is. A hint for manga authors: Try to take it least in the first chapter...

Some people are comparing it to the anime, so it would really look like bad stuff. But, if you rate it comparing other mangas out there, I mean, all mangas are good.. but I think this one stands out. It has an interesting plot, although I don't like the artwork so much. Anyway, it's a good manga... just don't watch the anime first... lol.

I loved the first two volumes of the manga, after that (I don't know how to put this) it loses something. The series as a whole are not bad and I certainly enjoyed reading them.

By the way, there is an Anime series with the same name. All characters are the same and most of them have the same role as in the manga but the story is quite different.

Readers take note that this My-HiME manga is NOT the same as the anime. The only correlation between the anime/manga is that they both use the same characters. The actual stories are different. With this said, I would have to say I think the anime is a lot better then the manga. Or at least, I prefer the anime over the manga.

My-HiME anime, it's not.

It also plays out a whole lot better, my opinion after watching 12 episodes of the anime and from reading the manga.

Tate's the main character in this one and they changed Natsuki a little. Both Mai and Natsuki fall for Tate and that's the way it goes.

A rather mediocre manga to be honest. Nothing great, or memorable, but interesting enough to get me to read 44 chapters.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
Why does it seem that in almost every Manga that the female lead must turn her back on or betray the protagonist at some point?
