Maria-sama ga Miteru [Unfortunately SPOILERS Lurk Here]

I've watched the first episode of it and it looks pretty nice. It's a shoujo-ai( ) anime about an all girl school. It looks like we're going to have subs of more then one group for it since the first ep was released by A-Source and Lililicious and according to A-Keep's website it's also their new project.

Anyone else got his eye on this one?

Eek, more yuri.

Im waiting for A-Keep (I guess). The preview was interesting, though completely unrevealing as to any plot elements (or Im blind / stupid).

To me Maria-sama ga Miteru reminded a little like Oniisama E (one of the few animes that I hate) but I actually liked this one and even laughed couple of times. As long as this don't go too melodramatic, I will follow it.
My only wish is that there will be at least some fanservice, but it is not very likely that there will be...

I will also download Anime-Keep's version when it comes out.

I liked it. When I saw it reviewed on a site I knew that I didn't have to download the teaser. The one fansub I watched I enjoyed. I especially like how they had each members name twirl like the cross did ^^;; The OP and ED music very much reminded me of church. And gahhhh, they said those french things oh so fast that my head was spinning.

I already like Yumi out of all of them. Theres just something about her that pops out towards me. Sachiko's mentor personality I think is already showing through as well. Overall I was wishing I had a second episode to watch. I'll certainly will be looking forward to it.

it reminded me of The Skulls at first - like a secret society with this messed-up hierarchy. kind of gloomy as well - no laughing or smiling, church music, hardcore church nun stuff. but after getting all that rosa chinensis en bouton petite soeur stuff figured out, it seemed okay. i think i'll give this one a try.

and does anyone else think that yumi looks a lot like nina???

I didn't find it gloomy at all, just a little bit self-involved. Slow to start, but rather intriguing. My only problem is that there are sooo many characters to get to know. It looks like we are going to have at least 10 major characters and we are introduced to them all at once. Oh, my.

Rosa Chinensis = Red Rose
en bouton = budding.
petit soeur = little sister

Just remember:
  • Rosa Sinensis: Red rose.
  • Rosa Gigantea: White rose
  • Rosa Foetida: Yellow rose.
The "en bouton" is in training to be a rose's successor and the "petit soeur" is training to become the "en bouton".

Hey, yuri is rare. Take every opportunity to watch yuri.

In any case, shoujo anime is a good thing. Lets me divert from all the bishoujo (overload) anime recently.

Yeah. And I think I have a small crush on Sachiko's nose. It's just so big, sharp and pointy...

Uh, must lie down now ...

Sorry, I should've clarified.

First, on a totally off topic,
on your screen it seems to show: (???) huh?
if you'd had Japanese enabled, you would've seen an AA (I guess in English, it would be "smiley") of a guy saying "huh?"

Okay, back to the topic. I should've clarified that since I haven't read the novel before hand, I had no idea what this anime was going to be about. Therefore, I had no clue about how this anime was going to begin with...and in the first several minutes these Japanese schoolgirls were suddenly talking in French. It took me by a sudde surprise as I at first didn't understand what the heck they were speaking about due to their literal katakana translation of "roza kinenshisu an buuton puchi su-ru" (and you don't want to know the poorly katakana-pronounced English words that I hear at my workplace everyday).

Interesting. I've been curious to see something like this (ie. the sort of thing Utena's not) for some time now, looks promising from the first episode.

Huh? I thought this anime is so much like Utena…

Why does Sachiko hate that president of student council of some boys’ school so much? Did she get dump by him? Are they going back together again?
