Summary:
From Tokyopop:
Yuuichi Tate is overjoyed: He gets to go to a brand new high school. Of course, then he just happens to find out the school he choose is under frequent attack by strange creatures called ''Orphans'', and the school set up a special task force of female members called ''HiME''s, using various elements as their powers, to battle these invaders. That's not all, though. Each member of the HiME task force has their own, unique ''Key'', another person whom, upon being discovered, can team up with the HiME to create a ''Child'', a combative unit specifically needed to effectively battle these Orphans. And with Yuuichi's luck, he just happens to find out he's not just the ''Key'' for one of the HiMEs, but for two... Two highly competitive, rival schoolgirls. And that's only the start of the trouble.

This anime was one of the best underrated ones. With drama, action, giant monsters, and a psychological breakdown similar to Neon Genesis Evangelion, this series definitely made a mark on me.

Now this manga was create after the anime (one of the few) and really falls short of its anime counterpart. Its still a good read and the story is different than the anime, so it kept me interested about these characters until the end. There were plenty of action scenes and interesting spins on the characters, but overall, it just didn't have the same impact. This three arc story was fast-paced, but some of the twists just felt out-of-placed and extremely coincidental. While there are gripes, its still good overall, and is a good read.
