Maria-sama ga miteru

Posted on: April 28, 2008

i realize something about myself recently. i realize that i enjoy anime most when it pays attention deeply to characterization. forget about sword and sorcery, mindless slapstick comedy and the usual harem plots that is unrealistically forgettable.

the anime that gets the most praise would be those with strong developed characters which we can all relate to. that is Maria-sama ga miteru or translate it as Maria Watches Over Us. first off, it’s a yuri anime so it’s oriented to the girl crowd. however, the story is so rich that guys should not pass it up at all.

here’s a quick guise of the show, taken from it’s wiki:

Maria-sama ga Miteru’s story revolves around the students of the Lillian Catholic school for girls, and can be considered character-driven, focusing on interactions between the characters rather than any sort of ongoing plot or goal to attain. At Lillian Girls’ School, there is a tradition known as the sœur system (sœur being French for “sister”), in which a second, or third-year student, the grande sœur (“big sister”), will give her rosary to a junior student, the petite sœur (“little sister”), and promise to look after them and guide them.

the story centers more on the relationships between members of the Yamayurikai (student council) which consist of three offices name after roses, Rose Foetida, Rose Gigantea and Rose Chinensis. the ones who holds these positions are usually senior members elected by the students. each Rose may take a junior member under their wing. basically these student council members are representatives of the school and are idolized.

watching Maria-sama ga miteru puts me in a relax, often peaceful mood. it’s like sipping a hot cup of chocolate on a rainy day, listening to the pitter-patter of rain drops outside. any worries i might have become trivialities. it sort of feels like that.

the story is sweet, subtle…perfect. there is absolutely no evil in this show. all is good. you won’t ever get angry or upset from watching this. the show flows so naturally that you’ll end up smiling more often than not. and i’m enjoying this immensely.

simply put, this anime is just very elegant, pure and beautiful.

u can regard everything here as fiction, or fanfiction (me being my own fan haha), or messed up ramblings from the deranged mind of a guy in his midlife crisis. whatever. comment as u see fit. the brainless ones go to /purgatory, not that i'm saying ur a zombie. then again seeing as i'm not getting much sleep lately, i probably am one. that said, u'll realise that u can't take legal action against a zombie. cause we've gots diplomatic immuniteh. rawr.
