Team Arika Yumemiya! [Grandma Knows ALL!]

Post by The Fire Stirring Ruby on Tue Dec 27, 2011 8:06 am



Yo-ho! The merry Arika Yumemiya finally has a formal group!

I am the group moderator, just so you know. Wink

We're very open! We don't make any exceptions to forumers! We would like to make friends to make a bigger circle of friends, that's what MY grandma told me!

Basically, this thread is mainly for discussing all about Arika, herself and other characters involved (do I make 'em sound unimportant?) . You can start now!

HiME CONGRATULATIONS ON BECOMING THE LEADER OF TEAM ARIKA YUMEMIYA!!! HiME

There are two top examples of greatness in the Mai-Otome series: Miss Maria Graceburt and Arika Yumemiya. <3

Before we get down to discussing Arika in all her glory (I'd like to know your in-depth opinion of her first), here is a photo dump for our little Antsy-Arinko!






Arika Yumemiya looking very attractive in her swimsuit...if only Mikoto Cat didn't block the view. >_<

In-depth opinion, huh?

Arika Yumemiya

Hmmm... I certainly don't know if this is even an opinion or a review!

First of all, when I first saw her (I already knew the storyline of the Mai-Otome series [Wikipedia] but I hadn't EVEN watched it before) I certainly made a reaction: "Why her for the protagonist in the first place? She was just an extra at the end of Mai-HiME!" After watching the first few episodes, that reaction came away and changed.

Her story of how she became a hero from zero is fantastic. Her ditziness is a part of a comical relief, I suppose and that's what makes her adorable to watch. This plus her clumsiness (?) caused her to be put into unfathomable dangers (like in the episode where almost got raped?). If this was to be removed, I guess viewers would be...turned off? This is supposedly so, it would be impossible for Arika, an over-intelligent normal person (in this case) would enter a scene, let alone stumble in front of many people.

A part of her that I truly admire is her strong determination and willpower, which she shows when just you think everything has no more solution. If she is a real person, I would have made her my model (just lacking the ditziness). This is her most noticeable, if not powerful, resolve in every situation she's in. This is her somewhat badass feature to her that attracted many fans (that includes everybody who watched it or read it).

*huff* That's a lot... Maybe I'll add more...in the future! ^O^

^o^ That's how I feel about our little Antsy, she is my favorite protagonist in the Mai-Series. Arika Yumemya, who I often dub "Sailor Moon version 2.0" is the perfect idealist. Not seeing war or any kind of fighting as the logical answer for peace between nations. Let alone Otome.

I'm fond of the heroine types in any show/anime, so Arika captured my attention fast. She cares for her friends, even if they turn on her. She even shows compassion for individuals who she thought were her friend like Tomoe, although some can argue that Arika left Tomoe to die during the Battle of Garderobe. XD That was quite a long way down...

Arika cares for the people and even improved her fighting skills with heart, not muscle. Cheesy, but I like cheesy. She's incredibly funny and her chemistry with grumpy little Nina is awesome. ;3

I can't imagine the series without her, she is really the one who change the planet of Earl forever. If her mother could only see Meister Yumemiya now, she would be so proud of her. Arika Yumemiya

Do you remember the time when Arika destroyed the Valkyrie core? Seeing how Lena's spirit (somehow in the form of a spirit, in my opinion) is happy to meet her own child and hugging her, it meant that Lena is really proud of her own daughter. ;D

It was the form of Lena's spirit to me as well. It didn't represent Arika's thoughts as some fans have claimed years ago :) I think I'll be uploading that scene next because it's one of the most touching in the series.

Mai Otome Sub/Dub Comparisons 22: A daughter's goodbye and a mother's blessing




* I have included Subtitles for the Japanese version! You have strongly suggested it and now they're back!

In order to stop the Valkyries power, Arika must destroy the power source which happens to contain her mother, Lena Sayers. There's really not much to say here, it's a powerful moment between daughter and a mother she never knew, but has great respect for. In my eyes, the hugging scene is Lena's spirit, expressing how proud she is of her daughter.

From Mai-Otome Episode 25:

"Maiden of the Blue Sky"
"Sōten no Otome" (蒼天の乙女)

Arika Yumemiya is voiced by: Mika Kikuchi (Japanese) and Angie Beers (English)

Mashiro Blan de Windbloom is voiced by: Yukana (Japanese) and Katie Rowan (English)





Arika Yumemiya :Grandma always told me it's good to please the fans~

Arika has that wild side to her! You can clearly see it in another famous Mai-Otome...

Mai-Otome Omake 3 [Otome Lingerie Party]



The third Mai-Otome omake! Arika Yumemiya, Irina Woods, Nina Wang, Erstin Ho and Juliet Nao Zhang having a great time!

Nao: Listen, you will help me with my work then.
Arika: If it's working, leave them to me.
Nao: Nina, you too.
Nina: (Blushes) Yes. I knew everything and I could not help it. That frightening fear. The plot of my onee-sama, Juliet Nao Zhang.

Irina: Number three, Irina Woods!
Arika: Followed by number four, Arika Yumemiya!
Irina and Arika: Here we go! Ta-da!
Erstin: You are the two monkeys.
Nao: You are very good at this. Then I will let them.
Irina and Arika: Don't leave?
Nao: I told you, you had to help me with my work. So use it and tell me if they are comfortable or not.
Irina: Seriously, we can take something beautiful...?
Nao: Don't worry, you too will feel good. Do not be so modest.
Irina and Arika: Thank you!
Irina: But the most amazing thing is...
Erstin: No...
Arika: Amazing! If to make it boing boing!
Nao: I think I can take a chunk with it.
Arika: Huh?
Nao: Nothing, nothing. And finally...
Nina: I refuse.
Arika: Why? Let's put them on. This is precious!
Nina: I refuse! I would never put something on like that!
Nao: If you do not dress like all the fun, we are crappy. Girls... Go for it!
Arika: This!
Irina: Good!
Nina: No! N... (bumps to Erstin's melons)
Erstin: I also want to see Nina-chan dressed.
Arika: nao!
Nina: That's right, I knew everything. Because there was a time that I had to return a favor in the same way. And then... This magazine, "Naughty Girls", number 27, students coming from Garderobe published, though their eyes were censored and was the best sold on the black market. Father, I have been humiliated again!





It's funny...Arika wasn't as enthusiastic during the Mai-Otome Zwei episode 3 fanservice moments. I guess Anh and Maya's antics scared her or she has become too mature over the past year. XD

During that time (at the omake), everything was still at peace and no nation-war was happening. Plus, Arika wasn't thinking of anything serious at the time their omake took place. It just happens that during the Zwei OVA, her own master and friend, Mashiro was missing. Of course, a meister cannot materialize to use her power to protect what she holds dear. Another thing to note is that Mashiro is Arika's closest friend she ever got aside from Nina, Erstin and Irina.

Shizuru Fujino Very good, Ruby! Yes, she had a lot of things on her mind. Don't forget that Arika was also upset that her and Mashiro had an argument the last time they were together. XD I can't stress how much of a married couple Arika and Queen Mashiro have become in Zwei. According to my wetochan, Sunrise made an official statement saying the two remain together in the future as a couple. <3

I agree about Erstin and Nina too. When the lingerie omake happened, it was a happier time for Arika I think. Her two best friends were around and the war that Nagi orchestrated didn't happen yet.

Precisely the point, Luu-sama! OMG, I didn't knew that they remained together as a couple in the future!

That's so FTW! Arika Yumemiya

*prances around the group* w00t!

OH and Luu-sama, you forgot to mention the other omake! It's about Erstin right? We can see that she was indeed happy, living in bliss at Garderobe and *taking advantage of what her Nao-oneesama* taught to her (though I say it as too mature for me to look at but anyway, I'm open-minded). tee-hee

^_~ It's true! ;_; My girlfriend is so lucky she can read the Japanese interviews by Sunrise. I will make her pay for this. >:3

Oh yes! The Erstin omake! To me, Erstin is kind of a wild gal in the closet and I'm not talking about her sexual preference. Erstin can be naughty when she wants to be, learning from Nao-oneesama will do that. XD

Awww, it's better if you stay away from the kinkier side of the Mai-Series until you grow older, Ruby. ^_~ Enjoy the most important parts of our fandom like the story, characters, the drama and the comedy. In the end, they matter the most. ^_^
