Synopsis


Maria is a witch living during the Hundred Years' War between England and France. Our young heroine hates war, so to keep the people of the village she protects safe, Maria will use all the power at her disposal to stop the fighting, whether that means conjuring giant dragons or sending her succubus familiar out to mesmerize the warring generals with her charms. But what do the villagers think of her "help"? And what will happen if Heaven notices her interference into human affairs? This story has a funny touch with a little history thrown in.

I could do without the Ecchi, but Seinen and the synopsis have my attention. 'Creator of Moyashimon' also has my attention. I guess I'll keep an eye out for more info.

Ah, it looks like it'll be good, but I just don't do religious humor. Or not like this at least. Pass.

Unless someone can tell me why this won't offend my Christian sensibilities lol

I'll check it out, from what I read of it, it was decent. Also it a completed work so it should hopefully get a full adaptation.

Yea, I don't quite get the Japanese fixation with supernatural role reversals. Demons / witches being good and angels bad (or hell vs heaven etc). At first I was fine with it because the premise seemed like a novelty, but the prevalence of these types of shows is starting to wear on me and makes me question why the set up is so common to begin with.

But I suppose it sounds interesting enough to warrant a look. I mean, if I watched all of Makai Ouji then I suppose I can at least give this a shot lol.

I'm sure there is, but I'm not a typical Christian. I find that I actually agree with a lot of critiques of Christianity. But to me, that only makes them more annoying to watch lol, when I agree with all their arguments but not their conclusion or attitude.
