** Because that was the FIRST Mashiro, the Crystal Princess of Mai-HIME. They were trying to tie the continuity together, where Fumi in Mai-HIME was also Mashiro's servant. This Mashiro was named after the original Crystal Princess, and the whole series is basically an exercise in [[IdenticalGrandson Identical however-many-generations-removed-grandchildren]].
*** Which opens ANOTHER can of worms, considering the first Mashiro departed through the Door to Valhalla at the end of {{Mai-HiME}}.
** Well, first things first. The "Mashiro" we see in ''Mai-Otome'' is in fact not the real Princess Mashiro (that's Nina), and even if the two series were occurring in the same continuity (which was never explicitly confirmed), even the flashback with Fumi is well into the future compared to the present-day ''{{Mai-HiME}}''. So if the series are indeed related, perhaps that was the descendant of the original Mashiro, or simply a member of the uninterrupted royal bloodline of Windbloom who just happened to look like Mashiro.
* Why does the scenery look more "modern" than in ''{{Mai-Otome}}'' itself, even though this is a prequel?

*** The entire world's SchizoTech doesn't make it that strange. Also, architecture fasions go through nostalgia periods regularly so old fashioned looking buildings could easily be newer. There's also the fact that the buildings in Windbloom could be more than 20 years old while the hotel they visit in this OVA could be brand new. If this is the future, why would they build gothic castles at all if there wasn't RuleOfCool going on?
