A four-episode OVA sequel to Mai-Otome, taking place exactly one year after the original, in which Arika, Mashiro, and Nina battle ancient superweapon Yuna to protect the world.

Until the fourth and final episode was released (on August 24), most forum threads dedicated to this series had been filled Epileptic Trees of various degrees of plausibility. But it seems that the actual episode only muddled the waters in the shaky continuity-discontinuity relationship between My-HiME and Mai-Otome 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 Mai-Otome 0~S.ifr~, 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 original manga.
