Mai-Otome, through episode 5.

"Becoming an Otome means giving up on love, giving up on female happiness...unless you become a lesbian like we did. We encourage it!"

I think I might be paraphrasing a bit. Just a bit. Okay, a lot.

My favorite part so far is seeing what Shizuru, Natsuki, Haruka, and Yukino become once they're given a less messed-up background (in Shizuru and Natsuki's cases) and several years to mature (in the case of all four). As I predicted, they take over the world. I still prefer them in HiME because I like the messed-up-ness of HiME!Shizuru/Natsuki and have less interest in them as an admittedly hot settled-down couple, but it's nice to see.

I also like the expressions the main characters make. There will be icons. So far, though, I prefer HiME. If Arika gets the kind of depth Mai did, I may change my mind, but, well...HiME has psycho Shizuru, and I'm one of those horrible fans who loves her best.

Oh, yeah, and Shiho reimagined is glorious Especially with Nao. And I love her, Akane, and Chie as a trio.
