Mai-HiME Episode 1
Mai Tokiha and her brother, Takumi, are on a boat going to their new school, Fuuka Academy. Along the way, a young girl is seen floating face down in the water. They pull her out of the water to discover she has a huuuuge sword with her, and Mai attempts CPR to revive her. Along the way we meet two other kids who are also attending Fuuka Academy, a "pervert" who is Mai's age (Yuuichi), and a 2nd year middle school girl (Shiho) who calls him her "onii-chan" and clings to him constantly, but they are just "childhood friends" (see where this is going...). Anyways, a chick in a biker outfit boards the ship looking for the sword girl and fun ensues..
I really like this show for some reason. The voice acting is great (except for maybe Mai's brother), especially since my favorite voice actor, Tomokazu Seki, voices Yuuichi. Also, the opening song was great, it really reminds me of some of those fun, mid-90's type openings. The music throughout was pretty good as well. The episode was really fun and interesting the whole time and definetly seems like it will continue (at least I hope so). Anyways, I'll definetly be continuing this series.
