Story: First of all, Gad Guard had a good concept story that pulled you in at first, About a boy that worked Day to Day to help support his family that his father had abandoned trying to be a better man, until stumbling upon A plot twist that ultimately completely moot as the later episodes seem to skip a lot of important information and got rather confusing and feels like it was rushed making the story kind of hard to fallow, for example Character's relationships developing without how it came to be, or how this character gained this.
I can still recommend this anime though it feel's sloppy toward the end it still has a good message. The character's have rich/fun personality's.
Art: The art design of this anime was kind of cheap, to many commonly used greys the colors kind of ran together at some parts but it wasn't horrible and wasn't totally bland.
Sound: Music is mostly comprised of jazz music and some techno
but is still pleasing to the ears. not bad, not great.
Characters: The characters were fun to watch but a lot of character development was left out but you can kind of see where the characters were headed before hand.
Overall: All-in-all this is a good fall-back anime when you've got nothing better to watch, its a fun ride to pass the time and Its not totally horrible but kind of cliche, I enjoyed it enough to a certain point though it lost it's plot somewhere along the line and lost most of its potential. I give this a 5/10

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.
Story: Gone, there is no story you could probably watch any episode of this new season and believe it was the first. it left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
Art: The art was plain but had the occasional,."Ooo, ahhh." moments.
Sound.: The opening theme was really quite funny for this season but knowing that was all too come after the OP. I was really quite sad. ;[
Character: It brought nothing new to the table the character's never really changed except for the 2 new characters they had brought in for an episode or two.
Overall: Sadly. with all that sad and done. Mara†Holic Alive, you have dashed my high-hopes for you. I can still recommend this even if you haven't seen the first season because you don't really need to know to much about the characters to watch this it will practically remind,re-tell why these chracter's have this issue, or this problem, why this happened. ect. ect. I give it a 6. read more
