A multimedia franchise created by {{Sunrise}}, based primarily around playing with the MagicalGirl genre for all it's worth. A major theme is the subversion of the very purpose these "magical" girls are given their powers for, and "ordinary" people trying to exploit them to further [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans their own agenda]].

With no anime set in this continuity, this is the territory of the ''LightNovel/MaiHiMEDestiny'' light novel series. It keeps the setting (Fuka Academy) and characters of ''[=Mai-HiME=]'', but shuffles them around in different roles and introduces two brand new main characters, Mayo Kagura and Shion Tennoji, while Mai is nowhere to be found. These two eventually underwent "otomefication" in much the same way as the ''[=Mai-HiME=]'' cast itself and, in ''S.ifr'', joined the ''Mai-Otome'' anime continuity under different names.

Takes place in the PresentDay, with NewTransferStudent Mai Tokiha as the lead; her name forms one part of the multilayered bilingual pun that is the series name ''Anime/MaiHiME''. It centers around Fuka Academy and the [=HiME=], girls with strange birthmarks, suddenly-awakening powers, and only vague directions of what to do with them until the time comes. And when [[WhamEpisode it comes]], the reasons for the [=HiME=]'s existence and the PowersThatBe behind them suddenly turn out to be far more malevolent than they originally suspected.

This is the premise of the ''Anime/{{Mai-Otome}}'' TV series, which itself has its fair share of spin-offs:
* its own [[Manga/{{Mai-Otome}} manga]] (loooosely intersecting with the series and heading past the franchise's typical strangeness into [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible uncharted waters]]);
* the sequel OVA ''{{Mai-Otome Zwei}}'' (with ''its'' manga, independent of the ''Mai-Otome'' manga);

The series is probably best-known for its odd and at times deliberately controversial animation and storytelling, most notoriously unpredictable [[MoodWhiplash tonal swings]] and [[GainaxEnding bizarre denouements]], features which have made it one of the most textually multifaceted or overextended offerings of the MagicalGirl genre (with the original ''[=Mai-HiME=]'' being perhaps the genre's first true 'problem piece' since ''Anime/RevolutionaryGirlUtena'').
