One-Paragraph Summary of Mai HiME
"Hi, we made a bunch of characters. You might like a couple of them. Now we're going to kill them off and it's going to be dumb. You'll wonder why you're wasting your time with our crap. Except we'll make it look all edgy and artistic so it'll inevitably attract a bunch of true believers and turn into a cash cow. Enjoy."

(Yes, they killed three of my four favorite characters and turned the fourth into a psychopath in an amazingly contrived fashion. I'm bitter and not ashamed of it.)
