Mai Otome’s main character is Arika Yumemiya.  She is an aspiring Otome, which are female warriors who use Old Technology, nanomachines, to gain incredible powers.  These powers come with a price though.  All of the Otomes are female because the nanomachines are not compatible with the Y chromosome.  This also means that any aspiring Otome needs to give up love to become the greatest and most respect Otome.  Throughout the series we learn that the princess might not really be the true heir to the throne and the series shows three girls who may be the right one.  Sergay is a detective whose true task is to find the real princess and tell his boss, the young but sinister Duke.  Overall the anime has good action with a lot of drama.  I enjoyed it and I hope that you will too.
