Maria-sama ga Miteru setting question
 
Ok I love the show and everything, but is it really set in 1902? Maybe the original novels were set in 1902, but the manga has to be set later, cause of a lot of things (notably one of the girls has a pixie hair cut, one of the girls has a freakin' color camera, the school has a newspaper club, etc.)

Does anyone know for sure, or are there any articles or author notes that state the anachronisms are deliberate?

Considering that ep 2 begins with a scene showing a modern day house and then Yumi's room with a computer, I don't think this anime takes place anytime before 1990. :D So it's definitely in the modern age.

really? I didn't even notice the computer or that scene.

Just where was it ever stated that the novels/manga/anime were set in 1902 anyway? I hadn't heard of this before.

yep, also the camera had electronic functions and when Yumi is having breakfast in ep 2 you can see a ver modern-day fridge ^^

That is actually the year that Lillian was founded. Maybe someone read that and got confused? I think people might have originally assumed that it took place in the past because it has a kind of old-fashioned shoujo feel to it. I've also heard that if Lillian bears any resemblance to "real" Japanese all-girl schools, it is to ones in the past rather than ones in the present. Maybe that's part of it too?

that explains why there is no purple hairs in that anime

I think you confuse with the creation of the school

the school was created in 1901. (source : official site)
