This is the Mai-HiME the Movie trailer that came out on the first Mai-Otome DVD. Keep in mind that this is a fake trailer in the sense that there’s not actually going to be a Mai-HiME the Movie.
The fact that this trailer seems so very serious all the way until the very end actually made me hopeful for a HiME movie. But with an autumn 20006 (no that’s not a typo) release date, I think it’s safe to say that this was an example of Sunrise having too much fun. But fun is the key word, and this trailer succeeds at being both incredibly exciting and funny. The ending really is the best part, with Mikoto having discovered her brother…Mikoto the cat. Anyway, it’s good to see all of the original HiME versions of the various characters, including Arika as a hilarious bad guy. Also nostalgic to hear 「小さな星が降りる時」 (Chiisana Hoshi ga Oriru Toki) again. The second DVD (out February 24th) is supposed to have a “This Week’s Armitage” special. Something more to look forward to…

  1. seems like Reito can’t cut a break in either this fake trailer nor in Mai-Otome. He’s a cat in one then a cyborg in another! Well I guess that beats Tate who apparently didn’t get any screentime in this trailer nor isn’t in Mai-Otome. ^^;;

  2. maybe arika and mai aer not getting along and just fighting no one looks evil in this trailer except for nagi… and aren they over doing it…i mean mai hime was fine the girls materialize children and stuff.. mai otome is good they materialize themselves … and now both worlds meet each other…! i think they are running out of ideas

  3. That’s funny to watch. I would really like to see a movie of Mai Hime and Mai Otome these are my favorite series. What I’m HAPPY about that this march…something, I forgot the full date Mai Hime series is coming here to the U.S., and it would be cool if they made a movie.

  4. I also agree that Sunrise is having way too much fun… I mean making it seem like there’s gonna be a movie then crushing our dreams horribly by saying it will be released in 20006… Sunrise is too rich and have too much free time for their own good… T__T

  5. I think this movie is gonna be real. I was thinking that searss make another fake hime like Alyssa, n the weapon that she used is her child. N about the calendar it saying that they gonna release 20006 calendar but that doesnt mean the movie is gonna come out in 20006.
