First thing that must be said, wow. Just wow. The ova for Mai-Otome-Zwei, which is another season of Mai Otome, was really good. I am going to try something different today, so bear with me please.

It is a few years after the previous time, and you can tell because of how much older Arika looks. Hey, don’t say anything, I couldn’t help seeing that, and if you watch it you will know what I am talking about.

Anyways the new plot is about this meteoroid that was about to crash on the planet. I won’t say too much about it, but imagine a second Jenova from ff7 (at least that is the best analogy I could come up with). So it is up to the Otome to take care of this thing. They don’t know about it at first, but soon it summons a new slave, which is obnoxiously powerful. Furthermore, the being seems to have the ability to freeze peeps into statues (if you have ever played Altelier Iris 2, imagine Exonosus).

The art seems to be a little bit different, as I had some minor problems with the last series. I don’t know why, but the previous series just wasn’t as crisp as this one is. Unlike most anime, I don’t like to watch the ending song and whatnot of most, the ova keeps playing through the ending cut scenes, and it may be a good idea to watch it.

All in all, I would give this ova a 4/5. I really liked how they did it, the art was good, and the story was amusing and fun to watch (not to mention that it got me hooked). I can’t wait till the rest of the series comes out, it would be really nice.
