Mai's breakdown (Spoilers)

Post by Ice Silver Crystal on Tue Aug 31, 2010 1:49 pm

Shiho's Child is defeated by Mikoto causing Tate to perish. It was Mai's reaction that got to me. I had to cry along with her. Felt like so much pain was gushing it's way out of her. Painful to watch. Even Kuga had tears in her eyes.

How did you feel when this event took place?

I was shell-shocked when I watched it. I didn't notice I was crying until the tears fell into my lap.

It touched me. I don't personally favor Mai all that much as a main character, just because her personality didn't speak to me. Both of Mai's breakdowns; the one when Takumi died, and the one where Tate died moved me though-because in the first one Mai finally took action, and in the second one she was finally being true to her feelings.

I didn't cry, but I felt for her, and the 'almost' kiss at the end really got to me. Then when Natsuki went up and grabbed her, that cry tore at me.

Same here, I started to realize that with one of my recent re-watches. I still favor Mai as a powerful HiME, if not THE most powerful HiME in the series. As a person, she doesn't appeal to me much. It doesn't just end at her inability to be honest with herself, she just seems a bit bland in comparison to the others. That's why I was extremely happy when Arika took over as main character in Mai-Otome. Arika is happier, more caring and more of a superheroine compared to Mai.

What happened with Tate was unfortunate though and I do feel for Mai. It started with Takumi which was bad enough, and seeing the utterly defeated look on her face brought the emotion level up high. It got very emotional when Natsuki tried desperately to calm her down. Natsuki probably thought "I thought things sucked for me, but Mai just got it worse."

For the record, I never cried while watching the Mai-series, but I was very close at times. It's rare for anime to make me cry. Only Sailor Moon, Fushigi Yuugi and a handful of others have made it happen.

When Mai broke into tears, I felt really sad because Takumi vanished when Akira's Gennai was defeated that made Mai cry hard, but when Yuuichi vanished, I almost cried for Mai loved Yuuichi but kept it as a "secret(not sure about this)" to him. When Tate was going to vanish, there was Mai, confessing her love to him, and when he disappears for good, Mai goes into deep depression because of the loss of his two most important persons.

Mai has always been emotional girl. When I first watched Mai HiME, all I can think about her emotions are going to be an issue while going through as a HiME. Her focal point was her irresponsibility that led to her mother's death and dying words "Please take care of Takumi". It was a hole in Mai's heart she couldn't repair nor help her family. But still couldn't give up on her mother's promise and raise money for Takumi's operation. Her father may have died as well If some clarify it to me eventually.

Mai's life has dedicated onto taking care of Takumi, her growing pains and not believing herself were till the last seven episodes.

Mai will always been a rise to ashes type of character, good character and she always entertain us Mai fans.

Mai Tokiha will also always be remembered the girl who stands around cries like a baby.

Still hoping for a MaiXReito relationship and Mikoto becomes the bridesmaid.

it's really nothing touching in that scene for me, i can watch it calmly without even move from my chair while sipping bubuzuke ... i mean tea.

Please Natsuki don't be a crybaby it's not like Shizuru's child the one who died.

It's strange, the Mai breakdown scene is built to be more emotional than anything else in the series and yet, I felt more emotion for Shizuru and Natsuki's final moments before becoming green sparkles. ^^; Huh.

Best emotional moment in the first HiME series when Mai's tipping point when Takumi was gone believed Mikoto did it. For Mai's sake she devoted herself to protect and give the surgery he needed. For the Tokiha family's sake and her mother's wish. Mai is still a great character, her journey is not over as a HiME and young girl who fighting for everyone.

That was a crucial point in the Carnival arc, resulting in a really amazing showdown with Mikoto. Even Kiyohime's run-in didn't ruin the heated moment. ^_~

Mai's journey is never over, she's a girl with abilities to save the Earth from certain doom. It's time to capitalize on this with further episodes. HiME

Right Mai has learned alot of from this ordeal, other people think Mai's a mary sue-ish character. To me Mai isn't that type of person it's just she's gone through tough times. Same as the HiME's, it's kinda of hard grasp on having powers and kicking people asses.

One question: Did Mai knew she had Katsuguchi from the beginning before Nagi told her also did that Child came from human souls or created of her own image ?

I really wish I had replied to this topic a bit sooner but, Yuuichi's death was and always will be the saddest moment for me in this series. Nothing hurts more than seeing your favorite character die and vanish like that. Especially when Mai is trying to tell Yuuichi that she cares about him.

The last time I watched that scene was during the making of my Mai-HiME Valentine's Day AMV, and I'll tell you what, never leave home without telling your precious person (or family member) that you love them. Cuz, well, you never know. :(

As others have said, even though Mai isn't really a character that I like as a main character, her breaking down did have an effect on me. I didn't feel like crying or anything but I felt for her. The scene where Natsuki tries to calm her down and she cries always gets to me though lol

I actually kind of want to watch it now haha *makes a mental note to do that later*

Thanks again for posting these moments for all of us to see how powerful a moment was in both languages Luu and thanks for that AMV. It was a nice depiction of the love we've lost, the love we've regained, the love that we'll always have, and that love that is truly timeless.

Yeah, I mean, it doesn't matter what version you watch. XD Listen to me, normally I'd suggest the Japanese original for the more emotional moments from the Mai-Series. This is a rare occasion where all languages spell emotion. Kudos to Bandai Entertainment for not botching this one.

Yeah Carol Anne Day and Jordan Schartner really did a great job in that scene. I've never heard anything Jordan did until this show and the only other stuff of his I follow is on the Gundam Dynasty Warriors games but I really hope to hear him more in the future. Kudos once again Bandai for doing a terrific job with the cast

Bandai Entertainment never had trouble with those serious moments. >_< It's the damn comedy scenes that they easily mess up. Maybe they're having too much fun in the recording studio, but at least make our girls sound less retarded.

It was tragic about what happened to Tate.
I was in tears when I had seen Kuga's teary face.
I kind of liked the english dubbed crying better because Carol Anne made the best emotional breakdowns in this show.
Like anybody else, I was indeed heart broken by that scene.

Cat girl, WHY?!
