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.

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?

to be honest this manga weren't that good. plenty of stuff was left unexplained, time-jumps were big (you could fit easily a few chapters on a normal manga on the jumps), the characters weren't special and the plot was typical where u could somewhat guess what happens next and the ending too.
anime is wayyyy better
imo, the anime is a lot better - plot wise, character-development wise and i prefer the art style. tho strictly speaking, the art quality in mangas are almost definitely better than tht in anime. it is rather unfair to compare since the anime is a rather good one (one of the best imho) so in its own rights, it isnt as bad as some other review would suggest. give it a read if u like girls with conveniently exposing short skirts flying in mid-air summoning monsters fighting each other n tentacle monsters all the while swooning over one pathetic excuse of a man. im putting u off arnt i? well, u're not missing much. i demand u to watch the anime now!
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 being...um...violated 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 slow...at least in the first chapter...
wow. really bad
wow all things considered, this is probably the worst manga i have ever read. like ok, it was off to a decent start, very readable and whatnot, but just went downhill form there. basically no character development whatsoever. i forced myself to skim to the end of it to see if the ending would be redeeming... but i was disappointed, basically it ends on the exact same note it started on. only the world is saved yet nothing has changed. great, wooo hooo
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.
ok i just read it and here what i want to say ....IT SERIOUSLY WACK the intro of hime and then dooms day...-.-" not a very flexible story line from the start of that.. well the character are fun i guess but arn't really life like but i guess you enjoy the fan service or the SWEET DRAWING OF BEAST OF STEELS!!!
I prefer the anime, but it's still a good manga, over looking some flaws it's overly good, not the best but good.
i prefer the anime though, but still a good manga, different style and ok arts, abit of ecchi and mecha. overall good 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.
