How long have you been a fan of Mai HiME?

Post by Luu Sky Sapphire on Sun May 16, 2010 2:04 pm

^_^ Long time fan or new to the series? Let me know here, because eye iz curious.

I've been a fan of the series since early 2006. At that time, I completed the entire series and bought a lot of the merchandise before they became expensive. I remember telling so many people (that didn't know about the series) about Natsuki and Shizuru, saying they're the next big thing in yuri. XD I still get thank yous to this day for introducing people to the series, most recently my partner in crime - Midori. :D

So how long were you a fan of the series?

GOOD question. If I would remember ~.~ Have to be since 2007 or so, maybe earlier, but I think in the middle of 2007. Now I am frustrated, because you know them longer than I do T_T
Started with some Shizuru and Natsuki pics on some fanside (no idea which, I should search for it again >.<). At that time I liked Natsuki just because of her appearance a lot ;P

lol Don't be frustrated, 2007 is pretty early too. To be honest, 2006 is pretty late too. Mai HiME released in 2004 correct? So I missed two good years of Mai HIME, although I've been reading and hearing discussion about it in late 2005.

@ Bicky aka Midori: XD More than a month now....I think. I'm so glad you're a fan. ^_^ *nudges Bicky-sama*

That's when it came out in Japan. XDDD I would of known about it sooner, but 2004-2005 was a very busy time for me. ^^;

XD You're funny. Look at it this way, the moment you discovered Mai HiME, you were hooked. So much that you caught up on three years of missed fandom. ;P

Don't remind me of BitTorrents. There was a time when I had the patience for downloading anime. Now I'd rather buy my anime. Besides, I love box art. ;P Mai HiME and Mai Otome are certainly no exceptions.

Re: How long have you been a fan of Mai HiME?

Post by MidnightPersona on Sat Jul 23, 2011 2:15 pm

I first watched My-HiME in 2009. I know, so late~ But I had no access to ways to watch anime and I was a manga girl so I tended to just buy manga (Still do. x3) regardless, my friend Kyle introduced me to HiME. He had the entire thing on DVD.

Fun fact: Kyle had guessed Haruka would be my favorite, and told me he wouldn't tell me his guess until I already made my decision. The second I saw Haruka in episode two I turned to Kyle and said "I like her!" And he smiled and said "I knew you would."

Anyways, after the infamous episode where Haruka became green sparkles, I didn't want to watch any more, but he just played the next episode and I saw the rest of the episodes that night. He also wanted to make sure I finished the series before I left for BCT in June of that year.

So what got me back on a HiME love spree was, ironically, my evil ex fiance telling me she didn't know if she loved me and later when I broke up with her.

I had HATED Shizuru's character before, but she suddenly became one of my favorites. (HaruKino being the only ones higher than ShizNat) And during this new kick of HiME love I found. (All this in 2010)

Next thing I knew it was HiME stuff left and right (Since I had a job) and even had some of my friends buy me HiME things! I went to SugoiCon 2010 and Spread the word of HiME love and even met Aki Misato who did the end theme for HiME and beginning theme for Strawberry Panic! That was an amazing concert and I have her autograph owo

And now, here I am. I am a HiME fan to the end, add in the rest of the multiverse and it's for life~

I've been a fan since around 2007 or 2008-ish xD

ShizNat was the thing that got me into watching it at first, and that was because I randomly went to the Mai Hime section in shoujoai.com. Uhh...and MaiNat too...back then I was really into reading Shiznat ff and the archive wasn't as big as now.

The ff and the great franchise made me into a total fan for a loooong loooong time.Good times...

Really great stories, ladies! What's great about any fandom coming together is seeing the old timers and newbies enter the fray. As many know, ShizNat became a delicious introduction to the series to several people. Most of the fans I've over the years were introduced through either ShizNat (yuri communities helped spread their relationship) or AMVs.

I've been obsessed with Sailor Moon for nearly 20 years, so consider your Mai-lovage normal. Especially for ShizNat. <3 ShizNat2

Hm... well, I've watched Mai HiME some years back before, but it was just one of those shows I watched and never looked back on. And then, I got bored one day and started re-watching the HiME series, and then Otome series and then found the Zwei and Sifr...

So i don't really know... I guess I'll say something like a year and a half then that I have actually been a fan...

I had a been a fan since 2007 asnd I had been a fan since. I had chatted with other fans and participated in discussions but as the hype died down, I became somewhat disillusioned especially since I wanted more of Hime but got less. Well, there is always fanfics.

Not delivering the Mai-HiME movie made me lose hope. Oh sure, the MO blu-ray special and Kuro no Mai are nice, but not enough.

Heard a friend talk about Shiznat a lot in late 2009, asked Luis about it. Him being awesome and all sent me Mai HiME for Chirtsmas that year. Absolutely loved the series and soon after that he sent me Mai Otome.
So been a fan for over a year. Not a major fan as much as I used to be, but still like the series. Cosplayed as Natsuki twice so far =)

Muahaha. Yeah I remember sending you my old sub collection. :) From what I can remember, you were fascinated by Natsuki but related more to Mai's work ethic? Something like that. ^^;

Which Mai HiME character personality relates to you?

^ Correct me there, so we don't go off topic. =p

Oh wow, I'm a true oldie then 'cause I started watching Mai Hime when it premiered XD

We have an AMAZING anime/manga/comic book store down here in South Florida. It was opened in 1993 and they offered anime series rentals. You could rent a 4 episode VHS (yes, this was waaay back before DVD, and even WAY further back before there was such a thing as free streaming video...or the internet for that matter, since the internet truly came into being in 1995/1996 XD) for a night for $1.75, or a weekend rental for $3 bucks. So, I practically lived at Tates =D

By the time that Mai Hime came out though it was available on DVD. I remember my good friend who worked at Tate's was gushing about this 'new awesome anime called Mai Hime'. So, I rented the first 4-episode DVD to watch, took it home, popped it into my DVD player, and sat glued to my TV from beginning to end of that first disk. I was hooked! XD

I wanted the next episodes NOW! Lol, but I had to wait a month for the next DVD to become available. And then another month for the next 4 eps, and so on and so forth. So, I've essentially been watching Mai Hime from it first premiered =D

I started watching Mai-HiME in about 2009... Well, for some time wanted to see it, but at the time I was concerned this much with Yuri... Mehhh afterward I was obsessed, addicted, I fell in love, then at last ... (Mai Otome... Hmm... Last year. I also enjoyed this series, however... I like the thematic of Mai-HiME)
