Mai Otome 8 spoils
>Ze *gasp* plot episode
Natsuki has an idea what happened the last episode, she has the power
to annul the contract between Mashiro and Arika, but chooses not to as
she prefers to scheme this time.
Miyu is a old friend of Arika and her supposedly deceased grandma. For
some reason Miyu has the power to remove meister gems, which Arika
and Mashiro tried to but failed. However, Miyu can't annul contracts.
One half of Arika and Mashiro's "problem" is solved. The rest remans.
It's also worth nothing that from Miyu's POV Arika has glowing golden
hair, much alike Alyssa from the first season, which is now Miyu's
In order to search for more answers Arika, and the gang who tag along
her for various personal reasons, break in the ancient maoloseum. They
arive at underground grave, only to meet Miss Maria who tells the the
meaning of being an otome. Even friendship is second when it comes to
the loyalty to the master. She knows this quite well as her oneesama
was forced to fight against a friend during the otome war long time
ago. Trivia: Her oneesama was from Kardea, her oneesama's friend was
from Florince (Akane's home country)
Speaking of the Empire of Kardea, the Emperor is secretly coorperating
with black valley to get rid of something in Aeris (Haruka's nation)
More interesting is that Midori is the leader of Black Valley's Aswad
fighters. I guess she got her own sentai squad after all, albeit
inverted. Go Midori!
and finally, if you're one of those people who wonder wether "Mai
Star" is a correct translation or not... well.. IT'S NOT, DARNIT. It's
officially Meister as the episode confirms.
