Miyamae Kanako, a high school girl, who is allergic to boys, enrolls in an all-girls school, hoping to find a female romantic partner. However, her ideal candidate, Shidou Mariya, turns out to be a mischievous cross-dressing boy, who together with his sarcastic maid Shinouji Matsurika, give Kanako really difficult times.

Time passes and Kanako still fantasizes about her ideal female romantic partner(s), to no avail, alas. Living in the same room at the dormitory Mariya and his outspoken maid keep on challenging Kanako's sense of reality on a daily basis.

This review is short because it is assumed you have watched the first season. This is about the differences of the second season.

Maria holic continues it's madness where it left off. Well, not exactly. It starts off right before the pool opens, and the cliffhanger from last season's finale becomes moot. That is okay though as there is no plot anyways, and it gives the same wacky comedy it did two years ago.

There is not much that changes about the humor in the show so if you thoroughly enjoyed the first reason you can rest assured that the amount of laughs won't change drastically. However, read more

Maria Holic Alive is the sequel to the above-average anime, Maria Holic. To be honest, I was very surprised that the anime even had a sequel. I decided to watch this because I was hoping that it would be better than the original. In the end, it was better. But only by a tiny amount. The sense of humor in this sequel was slightly better. I laughed to several of the funny, illogical moments that the series provided.

Story? Maria Holic Alive, takes place few months after the protagonist, Miyamae Kanako's transfer to the Catholic all-girls high school Ame-no-Kisaki. From there onwards, the "story" continues. Again read more

The story for Maria Holic Alive was pretty much the same quality as season 1, in other words the only unique thing about it was the fact that it had a perverted teenage girl instead of a perverted teenage boy. That's not to say there isn't new story arcs in season 2, but in my opinion its still no more interesting then season 1 which is why I gave this season the same score as season 1 a 7/10.
The artwork for Maria Holic Alive was pretty much the same quality as season 1 as well, to make this review more unique from season 1's review read more

My thought's on Maria†Holic were that the first season turned out pretty well with lot's of joke a little bit of plot to keep you interested and fun, sadistic, cross-dressing character's that we all know and love....

Unfortunately, Maria†Holic Alive didn't quite bring back the same thing for the table, they traded out most of the originality of the first season for nothing but nose-bleed's- Complex jokes and that is more or less why I had to give a giant sigh, to what could of been my favorite Anime of the year.

I can only cross my fingers in hopes that will change over time.

Anime: Zoku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
Both are random second seasons with no plot and just random funny moments 
reportRecommended by ariamachi
Anime: Arakawa Under the Bridge
I think they both have the same kind of troll humor about how the main character is always 'bullied' by his environment. I enjoyed both of the series also because of SHAFT's hilarious way of producing every scene
