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.

This has a absolutely different story and style than the anime. Personally I like the way this manga plays itself out better compared to the anime IMHO. Amazingly it is even more ecchi than the anime and with some more bizarre events.

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.

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.

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.

I thought this was a famous series. I notice a lot of people downloading the anime. It has action, a bit of ecchi, quite a cool main guy, pretty gals but...

So far I only read 2 volumes, but I actually felt kinda bored & there wasn't any magic moment. (Maybe bcoz there wasn't any comedy at all). Well it was only 2 volume so far, hopefully it'll be more entertaining later.
