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

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.

Compared to the first, i think this is the worse one.

I don't know why but i found it harder and harder to care or even pay attention to the story or the characters.

But i guess i was just expecting something different. I wanted more drama i guess... considering the premise and it being a sequel. More of a conflict that would affect the characters, mainly the cross-dressing one. It seems like it this anime had a hard time focusing on the characters. It tried to have a main focus of the lesbian bleeder, and the cross-dressing well cross dresser. I would have liked read more
