Mai-HiME Wiki

For the Mai-HiME counterpart, see Shiho Munakata.

In the My-Otome universe, Shiho Huit is a Pearl Otome along with Chie Hallard and Akane Soir where they are nominated as the Trias (Garderobe's top 3 pearls) and her mental instability is used as comic relief, in particular her rivalry and attempts to sabotage the careers of those she sees as insulting of Cardair, her homeland. She has a great rivalry with Juliet Nao Zhang.



Huit's legendary "Trauma Doll"

Shiho is best known for the voodoo-like practices she uses to curse others via a device she calls the "Spiral Trauma Doll". This in turn has earned her the nickname of "Uzumaki" (literally "spiral"). Her chant of "Maki Maki" (literally turn turn) has become a running gag on some online communities as seen with the '@' character (possibly for its spiral-look), as well as the tendency for her sabotage attempts (via curses) to backfire.. After the invasion of Garderobe she takes Lilie Adean and Yayoi Alter into the woods in order to curse the Artai military that had seized the school.


Later in the anime Chie shows up to them and requests to use the curses to break free from the Suit of Valkyrie. This allows her to disobey her orders and rescue the falling Arika Yumemiya.

These curses are strong enough to completely erase the existence of Slaves, which can be seen with the fight against Tomoe Marguerite as two Slaves are spiraled out of existence.

She eventually becomes the Otome for Florince in the place of Akane Soir, who elopes with Kazuya, and gains a Meister GEM known as the Spiral Spin Serpentine (螺旋の蛇紋石 Rasen no Jamonseki) that utilizes her spiraling abilities. Her Robe resembles her Child from the My-HiME anime and has a skull motif.

She is seen briefly in the background of the first episode Mai-Otome Zwei in the first scene, where she is crouched in the corner and spiraling. In the third episode she is one of the Otome in the bath during the SOLT and reveals her dislike for Rosalie Claudel, the other Otome of Florince. When Shiho's top is stolen by a drunken Ahn Lu it is also revealed that Shiho stuffs her bra.

Mai-Otome (manga)[]

In the manga Shiho's role is reduced, and there are actually two of her. The first is Shiho Huit, who is still a Pearl. She initially covets the Blue Sky Sapphire and has Erstin Ho fight Arika for it. Shiho is without the "maki maki" device, but appears to be very fond of drills, a trait that she apparently shares with her idol, Meister Reira Mariposa of Cardair.

The second is Shiho Munakata, the resurrected HiME, who takes on her counterpart, amusingly claiming to be her identical twin separated at birth (though this is almost certainly false).
