MARIA†HOLIC – Anime Review

Review: Kanako-san is a yuri-girl beyond help and finally transfers to a prestigious girls high school as a second year student. Her dearest wish is to befriend the beautiful pure maidens of this school and maybe even meet her fated lover. On her first day she gets to know the beautiful, rich and highly admired first year student Maria. However, her happy student life makes a drastic turn after she discovers Maria is actually a cross-dressing boy; and a sadistic mischievous one to that. He threatens Kanako not to expose his secret, in which case he would expose she is a lesbian and make her life a living hell. However, now that she is under his observation 24/7 and is exposed to the jealous gazes of the other students, there isn’t any difference, is there?

Maria Holic is the hilarious story of Kanako’s pitiful student life. Being a big fan of shoujo-ai I can’t help liking this series. The animation and general flow is much similar to Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.
Rating: 8,5/10
