Woot! All right, this is the 2nd season of Maria Holic! I was so happy when I found out this was going to get a 2nd season.

Anyways, if you havent seen the 1st season, go do it!

Heres the synopsis.

Maria Holic revolves around a lesbian high school girl, Kanako Miyamae, who is scared of boys and breaks out in hives if a boy touches her. During her second year of high school, she enrolls in an all-girls school hoping to find a female romantic partner. However, her ideal candidate, Mariya Shidō, turns out to be a sadistic cross-dressing boy.


This was the one anime this season that I was looking forward to the most.....until I found out Gintama was coming this season.

You know the drill, write about the episode, what you think of it, or anything in general about it.


So happy! Now to actually go and watch the episode xD

Edit: Oh and by the way....this isnt really a best comedy of the season anime...but it is still pretty funny, now to watch the episode

While I am going to watch this series I am going to wait for the blurays/dvd's to come here since sentai film-works did pick it up, I did the same with yuki merry so it's won't hurt to wait a bit but I am looking very forward to this.

Unfortunately, this is going to make the first of TAN's simulcasts that I will not be watching from the start.

The problem is this is the first one that is a follow-up to a previous series, and is lukc would have it, one which I had yet to watch.

To make matter's worse, TAN has several series that expire before April 22, that I can either spend time watching now, or kiss them goodbye, so I'll have no time to watch the first series until after then.

On the bright side, at least by the time I get to the simulcast, there will be several episodes to view.

Well technically it is. But its not the type of Yuri anime that most people might have seen,

WHen I think of Yuri, I think of shows like Strawberry Panic which was just about love of Yuri. It had no comedy to it whatsoever

This anime is nothing like it. The Yuri element is mainly used for the comedy aspects of this show.

So basically what Im saying is that just because the Main female lead likes Yuri....it shouldnt turn ya off from the show....hopefully.

I went back and watched the first season but it was not as good as i remembered...
The girls perverted nose bleeds was kind of annoying but since it didn't really have an ending in the first season ill watch the second season.
I would like to know if she ends up with the boy or if she stays with only liking girls...

I almost feel ashamed to say that I loved the first season, and finding out a week before it aired that a second season was coming out... was an early Christmas present. I do feel that the first season went downhill after a few episodes, but I still laughed really hard at parts and I hope this season also delivers.

I had the same issue with the first episode that I had with a lot of last season: not enough Mariya!! yeah, the guy's sick, sick, and sick, but that's where a lot of the comedy was for me. Kanako's friends kind-of bore me; the only side character that I really enjoy is the priest.

Since you are in the U.S., there is always the legal option.

i have to agree with the anicent one the whole purpose of fansubs is to bring out anime quick and fast for shows that are not available here, if there is a legal option subbers tend avoid it. Also it is licensed by sentai filmworks so some will not list or host because of that.

I didnt really get to check out that site. Since apparently I need to login to watch videos there (Which can be easily done, just I want to ask a question before hand). Is that site a site that is legally subbing the show or something?

If so, then I totally understand why no 1 else is subbing it. Though I am curious as to why they would be slower than normal fan subs.

Or maybe Im missing the point entirely

Yes, The Anime Network's website does one simulcast per season, and Maria Holic Alive was the show they picked for this season.

As to why the delay, it probably is mostly contractual, in the same way that sometimes a show here on CR (Squid Girl and Asobi ni Ikuyo come to mind) were delayed by days instead of an hour or so. A small part of it, however, is that with the exception of their first simulcast, all their simulcasts have the episodes premiere on Sundays. Four times in a row seems too much of a coincidence, so I suspect that even if the contract terms would allow them to show the episodes on say Thursday or Friday, they bump them to Sunday.

FYI, unlike Infinite Stratos, which allowed free viewing (if you registered) of all episodes, this one is going to be like HOTD and Samurai Girls; first episode free to all, second episode free if you register, and the remaining episodes available only to paid members.

Oh ok. Thanks!

Also, I found episode 2 now. Though Im not sure if its just AnimeNetworks own video, but even if it is....I guess I at least know that people will upload it to other sites
