Mai-HiME the RPG: Episode 7

damn-you-rpgxp.jpg

It was something of a disappointment to find that anime episode seven wasn’t as good as imagined; the episode that introduced Nao wasn’t exactly poor, but as far as RPG material goes, it wasn’t the best I had to work with. The result- a lot of fiddly and troublesome scenes that took an age to complete (and if I’m perfectly honest, still contain a few bugs).

Mikoto heads into town to search for Ani-ue, only to end up encountering Nao and one of her dates.

Nao’s date is more than a little surprised when Julia shows up.

I’m afraid this isn’t a battle that the player can actually participate in; in fact, it ends right after this message.

The next day, Mikoto is scolded by Mai.

This scene is somewhat amusing in that all the characters relentlessly march across the screen in unison before building up on the right hand side. Needless to say, I will have to adjust this.

Midori arrives and breaks up the fight.

Thanks to Nao, the whole place has collapsed, but luckily Reito appears in time to save Mikoto.

One thought on “Mai-HiME the RPG: Episode 7

  1. Begining to think that Mai’s too obsessed with screen time XD It’s funny to imagine her saying that Mikoto was stealing her screentime. Keep up the good work! ^_^
