    Hehe. If a DDL is possible, I would like one. The trackers keep on timing out on my end, so the torrent doesn't download the file. Otherwise, I'll just keep on trying until it downloads.

    Um yes, I do believe I read at Anime News Service long ago that the presentation would be widescreen and very theatrical. Very nice.

    Well I'm sorry if I didn't know that too!

    Are we allowed to discuss what happened here? Or do we have to use those spoiler tags that go into advanced mode?

    Yeah but she really isn't too impressive of a fighter... they need some more moves. I did like the combo tho.

    Ritz, I really, really recommend you use spoiler tags unless you want me to chase you out of the thread. I, too, am going to wait for the subs.

    Is doremi going to sub this? Don't get me wrong, I am excited. My Mai Otome thirst has still not been quenched. I just don't think I need it so bad that I will download the RAW.
    Spoiler: OVA
    Akane, Nao, Tomoe, Rena, and Miyu weren't in it anyways. (Another reason I can wait for the sub.)

    Cameos and flashbacks are different than significant roles. I was hoping that Arika and Mai would be background characters and others would have a chance to shine.

    That's why they're called main characters. To take the spotlight from everyone? Of course, Mai deserved her screentime in this first OVA since she did get screwed over to hell in the series.

    Yeah there was too much Arika. She kind of bugs me.

    And Miyu was in it.

    there was a theme?

    Spoiler:
    And I may have missed this since I was just skimming, but did Miyu even do anything? Or did she just appear as a statue? And boy did Shizuru look freaky...

    -Scream- TOMOE-SAMA!!!!!!!!

    Now that I have that out of system.
    Spoiler:
    The people that count for me were not in the episode. To say Miyu was in the episode is a joke, she did nothing. Obviously, I want Tomoe to appear and have a large role. No such luck for the first OVA. Static subs are pretty good, Doremi had a habit of being faster if I remember right though. This is something I want subbed quickly. Speed is more important than quality to me in this case.

    I don't see why this has to be in spoilers. And if you like speed, yeah go ahead. But I recommend you at least look at Static's version, Doremi is filled an incredible amount of inaccurate translations. Heck, they had to release multiple versions of DVD omake 8 because someone had the guts to come and point out how horrid their translations are. (Though part of the poor quality is in the fact Doremi actually cross-translates from Chinese subs.)

    You know if it's a poor translation, it is clearly NOT what they are saying at all.

    The two usual subgroups will work on them. What's it matter to you, considering you say you know and understand Japanese already? :oh

    You mean for the RAW? I haven't seen any other format besides mkv yet, so you might have to wait for the subs.
