A four-episode {{OVA}} sequel to ''Anime/MaiOtome'', taking place exactly one year after the original.

Until the fourth and final episode was released (on August 24), most forum threads dedicated to this series had been filled EpilepticTrees of various degrees of plausibility. But it seems that the actual episode only muddled the waters in the shaky continuity-discontinuity relationship between ''{{Mai-HiME}}'' and ''Anime/MaiOtome'' even more. It did, however, get a number of fan-theories about the Otomeverse {{Jossed}}.

It remains to be seen whether the follow-up, a prequel series named ''Anime/MaiOtome0Sifr'', will be of any help. And now they're throwing characters from the ''[=Mai-HiME Destiny=]'' spin-off novels into the equation...

Has an attendant manga that follows from the original anime but eventually diverges from the OVA and is '''not''' linked to the [[Manga/MaiOtome original manga]].

Provides examples of:
* AllJustADream: Subverted. Arika assumes that she was dreaming about destroying the meteor, but Maria points out that it did actually happen.
* TheAtoner: Nina.
* BackToBackBadasses - Arika and Mai in episode 1. Arika and [[spoiler:Nina]] in episode 4.
* {{BFG}}:which is as useless as ever
* BigBudgetBeefUp
* BruceWayneHeldHostage - Subverted: Arika is sleepy, doesn't realize what's going on, and thus screws up what could be a more peaceful resolution; on top of that she couldn't use her Otome powers anyway. It doesn't help that [[spoiler:Tomoe]] identified her to the busjackers purely out of spite.
* CantHoldHerLiquor - Ahn Lu, Annam's Otome in episode 3, gets drunk in a relatively short period of time, [[MarshmallowHell forces Arika's face]] into her breasts and strips off the fellow Otomes' tops
* ChewingTheScenery - Several scenes have this feel to them.
* CombinationAttack - Arika does a Bolt From the Blue through one of Mai's [[RingOfFire rings of fire]] to kill the first Child, and Arika and [[spoiler:Nina]] combine their ultimate attacks to finish off the BigBad.
* ContinuityNod - Nao, reads an entry from Sergay's diary about the magazine with pictures of Nina and a few other students that Nao took in one of the specials.
* ConspicuousCG
* DemotedToExtra: Tomoe.
* DeathFromAbove
* DorkHorseCandidate - Wattarl Ishigermin and his running mate [[spoiler:Tomoe]]. The citizens consider the former an annoyance and show outright hatred and disgust toward the latter.
* {{Ecchi}} - The bath scene goes beyond "{{fanservice}}."
* EmpathicWeapon - Arika's Zwei Robe.
* FailsafeFailure - the Surrogate System.
* FanService
* FanservicePack - During the year after ''MaiOtome'', Arika's robe wasn't the only thing that received an upgrade.
* FauxActionGirl - As in the original series, Natsuki's attempts to actually fight are routinely fruitless and cut short.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere
* GoodCostumeSwitch - [[spoiler:Nina's new Meister Robe]].
* GreatBigBookOfEverything - Subverted: [[spoiler:it's not actually a book at all]]
* GuiltyPleasures - No plot? No problem!
* HitMeDammit - Arika and Mashiro. Doubles as GetAHoldOfYourselfMan.
* HotSpringsEpisode - Most of episode 3 is the Otomes spending their time while everyone else is at the SO.L.T. conference, which for obvious reasons, they weren't invited to.
** Except for Kazuya, who is for some reason at the hot springs with the Otome instead of at the conference, despite being one of the three emperors of Cardair.
* LampshadeHanging - Nao and Nina comment out every single TempleOfDoom trope they encounter.
* NippleAndDimed - A half-second of pink nipples in the third episode, right in front of the camera.
* TheNoseBleed - Kazuya, after the Otomes' swimsuit tops are pulled off, causing Akane to slap him.
* PhlebotinumBreakdown - The Surrogate System, constantly and by design.
* [[HesBack She's Back]] - [[spoiler:Nina, after a TenMinuteRetirement in the end of the main series]]
* ShoutOut
** ''{{Mai-HiME}}'', even more of them than in the original series.
** SOLT (Strategic Otome Limitation Treaty) is a clear ShoutOut to the real world SALT (Strategic Arms Limitation Talks).
** As is Ares' Delta Force to, well, the real world special ops unit Delta Force.
* SortingAlgorithmOfEvil - Yuna is arguably an even greater threat than Nagi, with the potential to destroy the entire world.
* TalkingIsAFreeAction - Yukino is able to give the entire speech for activating Haruka's GEM while falling with her, and Haruka Materializes just as she hits the ground.
* TemptingFate - After Nina describes the first trap as a pit trap upon entry, Nao wonders who would fall into it, just as Nina triggers it.
* TheWorfBarrage: - Arika Bolt from the Blue, even in Materialize Zwei, generally fails to kill the monsters unless someone else [[CombinationAttack launches an attack with her]].
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway - Some of the Otome's powers.
