Aww. It was cute. Also quite predictable, I knew everything would turn out well...

So sweet! I just love this end.
I foresee that the things will turn well but the way the series lead us was just amazing.

I am thoroughly disappointed by the ending. I've always known that it would have a happy ending because it's just that type of anime, but what a sorry excuse. Maybe I don't understand because I've never lost anyone close to me, but I still feel as though Sachiko's behavior was just idiotic.

I'm starting to hate just about every character in this anime...

This last "arc" disappointed me, but rest was pretty good.

lol at the last arc being a disappointment. Are you guys serious?

It was great since it was overflowing with character development especially around Yumi who was so infatuated with Sachiko that everything she does, she overreacts.

Now Yumi learned how to loosen up especially around her oneesama and gain confidence on herself which will help her a lot since a year from now, she will become the Rosa Chinesis of Lilian.

They really throw the word "love" around like nothing else.. Well, Sachiko is more at fault for not telling her than Yumi for misinterpreting, that's for sure.

And I think it's quite ridiculous how half of the schools always goes to watch.
Yumi and Touko talk outside, everyone standing at the windows or somewhere else around. Yumi gets called to the staff room, already 10 girls waiting (only Yoshino and probably Shimako would be okay in my opinion). Yumi and Youko are on the way to the car, the girls stand there on the side as if it would be a wedding and the couple would go through there.. seriously? xD

This season wasn't really special, but it was still good ^^

"I'm sure Sachiko's to blame." Oh Youko, you know her so well haha!
"May those who accept their fate be granted happiness."

Seriously, lol. But this was a cute way for them to reconcile.

And on another note, am I the only one who noticed Youko and Yumi didn't have their seat-belts on?

D'aawww, the last five minutes were so sweet. That amazing hug and the reveal of Yumiko and Sachiko's grandma's relationship. I wish Sachiko told Yumi, and Touko should have said something too. It almost seemed like Touko was getting off on their misunderstanding.

Loved this season! I'm so glad there are four seasons of Marimite :3

I do agree Sachiko is to blame but I sympathize for her. It's not easy to explain to someone about a loved one being sick. Sachiko thought Yumi would notice but she failed to understand Yumi is very delicate and she tends to overreact sometimes.. Still, it was a very sweet last couple of minutes. Both Yumi and Sachiko learned more about each other and got closer. Hopefully Sachiko is a lot kinder to Yumi and is more open with her.


8/10

Another lovely season of Marimite :)

At first I thought the last arc was a bit overdone but as it progressed, I felt they explained Yumi's insecurity and doubts very well and as a whole, provided great character development for both Yumi and Sachiko. I appreciate it much more afterwards. The hug at the end was especially sweet. As was seeing Yumiko reconcile with Sachiko's grandmother.

The second season was very ripe with character developing and was interesting to watch. I like Yumiko very much and thought that she was a nice plot developer. I don't think that I can marathon season 3....too many feels. Oh....and I hate Touko too much ..... need to take a break from her or I may kick my monitor.

I have a lot of small gripes with this show, but that's because I recognize that it's doing a lot of things right. Blind praise is worthless without understanding the state of things, and I'm fully interested in knowing how Maria-sama ga Miteru works. I get that the show is best approached by enjoying the characters' interactions and how their relationships change overtime, but I'm still not sure what these relationships are. Perhaps that's the intent, to have it be some complex relationship that can't be understood through simple words, but at the same time, it's hard to say if the anime can spend so much time dancing around the issues surrounding the characters. But, alas, the fact that I can question this show this much may prove that the show has substance. Who knows.

Gotta keep a gaydar close at hand every time these characters say they love someone. So far I get the feeling that Yumi and Sachiko's love is one of a strong sisterly bond and hasn't encroached into shoujo-ai just quite yet.

Although a rather predictable and safe reconciliation, it was still heartwarming and allowed for both characters to develop nicely along the way. Most notably Yumi, whose love for Sachiko is probably stronger than ever before now that she's not clinging onto her. Another interesting part of Yumi's development is how much she's able to influence those around her. Nearly everyone realizes how important Yumi is to Sachiko and even Sachiko's mother stepped aside to let Yumi tend to Sachiko's heart on the day of the funeral. Although it would have done so much for Yumi to have known sooner (thanks Prince for being the only one to fill her in), it's easily understandable that Sachiko was simply unable to bring herself to tell Yumi and become so vulnerable.

For the most part, I found Touko to be a playful devil up until the last episode, where I was starting to become skeptical of her. However, it was really cute to see how uncomfortable she was from Yumi's kindness. I get the feeling she'll be getting Yumi's rosary in a matter of time.

This sequel was a strong follow up to the series, although admittedly I probably could have done with watching at a slower pace. The lesson has been learned and duly noted for when I decide to savor 3rd and 4th in the future. It did well to portray the passing of the torch as the previous Roses graduated. Just like with season 1, Haru also managed to show rather than tell the characterization of its cast and did well both with the established members of Yamayuri as well as the first years.

7.5/10 to compliment season 1. Maria-sama 3rd looks like the perfect way to wrap up the summer.

Yeah that bothered me momentarily. I'm a stickler for impeccable driving habits so it irks me when I see irresponsible driving in anime.

How was Yumi supposed to understand that the reason Sachicko was so down was that her grandmother was on her deathbed. How morbid does Sachiko think Yumi is.

Really thought their bond was strong enough by now that Sachiko would able to share that, but I guess I was wrong.

Not sure why Touko was so cheery when telling Yumi about her trip with Sachicko to see her grandmother on her deathbed.

Although I'm not satisfied with how the misunderstanding was handled and resolved, it was a cute ending nonetheless. Also got some character development. And the bond between Yumiko and Sachikos grandmother was a nice touch.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.
