Synopsis:

Guided by a star only they can see, a group of maidens known as HiMEs have begun to gather at Fuuka Academy. These young women have been endowed with dangerous supernatural powers that they can use to their heart's content, but there's a price: to wield them, they must put their most important thing on the line. Now, in the midst of school work and friendships, they find themselves caught in the midst of strange conspiracies seemingly related to the terrifying monsters that attack them. Is the power of the HiMEs strong enough to save themselves and the ones they love?

Love Love?

Love Love?
  • TV (9 eps x 13 min)
  • 2004

17 year old Ooizumi Naoto finds himself on set as the “making of” cameraman for a big budget TV production named Cosmopolitan Prayers. He is in heaven these days since his crush, Magami Natsumi, has been chosen for the lead heroine. But as he tries to find ways to advance their relationship, the other girls seem to also have set their sights on him with not-so-coy looks, full-body knockdowns and skirt flipping. Is he in heaven or hell? With all the chaos surrounding him, the biggest problem isn’t the incessant teasing, but whether or not the girls find out his big secret!

In Love Love and My-Hime the characters have similar types of attitudes and the same sense of character development. Especially involving the girls there are many different personalities and angles of the characters.

kadabra64

magic, suspense, mystery, all these elements create both of these series. Through the battles, the days in school, and even the budding relationships between the web of characters, both will put what they care most for on the line. What ever is liked in either series the other is just as promising.

Madlax

Madlax

The country of Gazth-Sonika has been engaged in a civil war for more than a decade, struggling to stay afloat amidst attacks from the anti-government faction known as Garza. With lies and corruption seeping into the political food chain, a mysterious book in one young girl’s possession may be the only key to uncovering the truth and bringing an end to the war. This book, however, is sought by many. And when the invincible agent Madlax is hired to protect those in search of its truth, Gazth-Sonika dispatches a ruthless soldier to make sure that truth stays in the darkness...

At first glance, it may seem like the only thing Mai-Hime and Madlax is an excellent Yuki Kajiura soundtrack. However, while that is a nice bonus, these two series are really more akin in their plot structure. Both shows start out in rather simple fashion, perhaps hinting at greater things to come, but mostly being very straightforward. Then, almost before you know it, they evolve into situations where there are a ton of different characters fighting for many different reasons and goals. There is a healthy mix of action and drama as they ally and/or conflict with each other, and the resulting chaotic free-for-alls are just a lot of fun to watch. If you liked the later portions of either of these series, give the other a good look.

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha

Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha

Nanoha used to be a normal grade school student until one day she found a ferret in the woods -- but he's no ordinary ferret! His name is Yuuno, he hails from another world, and he needs Nanoha’s help to complete his mission: to capture the Jewel Seeds (mysterious stones that imbue their wielder with great power) that fell to Earth. Along with Yuuno, Nanoha must now collect the Seeds and protect her world, but she isn’t alone. A rival is also trying to collect the Seeds for an unknown purpose, and only Nanoha has the power to stop her…

TheHermit

Both series are superficially silly magical girl shows, but have dark underpinnings beneath them. They also feature over-the-top fights scenes and deal with trust and hope as central themes.

Melody of Oblivion

Melody of Oblivion

At the end of the 20th century a fierce war raged between the Monsters and the humans. The outcome was devastating for humanity -- as the Monsters had won -- and thus a new era of Monster-ruling began. These Monsters feed on children and can turn any human who sees them into either a puppet or stone -- except for the Melos Warriors who are the only ones able to fight them. Meet Bokka, a young aspiring Melos Warrior whose only goal is quite simple: to save the Melody of Oblivion and vanquish the Monster King, once and for all!

I don't know why anyone hasn't made this recommendation before! Mai Hime reminds me a bit of Melody of Oblivion. They have hidden powers, dark mysteries, similar pacing, and a bit of romance. Out of everything I've seen these two fit together the most, yet aren't exactly the same.
