Mai Hime = yuri or yaoi?  
Just like my friends. JUST like my friends! (And me too!! XD)

I've been watching Mai-Hime. I was watching it mainly because it's rumored to be really yuri-tastic and it hasn't disappointed too much yet. It's a little slow though. But THIS moment surprised me, because I thought the show was geared towards a male audience, and yet... yaoi! LOLOL

*shuts up not to spoil anything* XD

Where did you get it from? I had to stop at 19 and would like to see the end of the series. ^_^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 8th, 2005 09:46 am (UTC)
Mmmm.. that's a REALLY good question, actually. O.o *looks around*

I got it here! http://www.boxtorrents.com/download.php/127385/My%20Hime.torrent

But they only torrent the ENTIRE series. I haven't seen any downloads for just part of it.. It seems to be pretty well-supported though with lots of seeders. ^^

The first 5 or 6 episodes annoyed me a lot because of the whole pants shots and ecchi and the like. But it got really interesting afterwards and angsty like whoa xD. It started being funny and happy, but it changes completely once you get into the real plot.

Thanks for the link! I think I can manage to download only what I'm missing using bitcomet or azureus.

Ahh, really??!!! That's awesome to hear! So far I've been kind of 'eh' on the series, but I've only watched 6 episodes. The yuri hints were enough to keep me going, but only barely. I kept looking at the Tactics batch that I'd downloaded and wondering if that was a better use of my time.

just watch until the end ^_________________________^ (zip mouth to keep from spoiling)
*look above
and tactics have a very wide fan base *eye flist who kept providing reason to go and watch* so there must be a valid reason to it (certainly does have the shounen ai hint to it) XDXDXD

hi ^_^ I just thought I'd comment to let you know I've added you to my flist. I always *hate* it when people add me without telling, so it'd be silly of me if I did the same, neh :) So... I'm Lin, and I added you cause I followed you home from the tenimyu community and your entries were fun and interesting ^_^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 8th, 2005 10:08 pm (UTC)
Hello lin! ^^ As I said on my userinfo, I don't mind at all when people add me. ^^

i'd have to say that this is one series in which the anime was better than the manga. then again, the manga was fairly cliched and totally geared towards the male audience, with some random nudity.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 8th, 2005 10:10 pm (UTC)
Until this, I'd totally thought that the anime was geared toward the male audience too. The toy lines in the gatcha machines seemed to support that. But now, I'm not so sure..
Artabandonedsoul on July 8th, 2005 11:31 pm (UTC)
eh heh...Until this, I'd totally thought that the anime was geared toward the male audience too.

It still is...but you'd have to watch further so I don't spoil. Mai-Hime is very much a male-geared show what with the ginormous boobage and massive yuri content (though Haruka and the glasses girl are yuri-tastic for a different reason in the manga) but the story is something pulled out of a CLAMP work. Sorta. It's entertaining, but not really all that great when you get into the technicalities.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on July 8th, 2005 11:37 pm (UTC)
CLAMP-ish? Ugh.. that makes me not really want to go on. I HATE CLAMP endings.. (I loved Rayearth.. until the ending of the first series!) I've heard this one is depressing too (actually I know the ending because someone on my fl spoiled it a long time ago)

Mmmmmm yuri! That's why I'm watching it! But I really can't see a show aimed at guys having yaoi too! :O Even if its just a little scene, that was so out of place!
Artabandonedsoul on July 9th, 2005 06:05 pm (UTC)
Eh, CLAMP-ish as in it has a lot to do with love and relationships. Not exactly CLAMP persee, but more of a shoujo story type.

Yes...yaoi...>_> but it was for entertainment purposes.
