Before Madoka Magica, before Bakemonogatari, Akiyuki Shinbo and Shaft adapted Minari Endō's sadistic yuri comedy Maria Holic. Sentai Filmworks has DVD and Blu-ray sets slated for January release, and with pre-orders open, they've announced the English dub cast. See who's who after the jump.
Minari Endou, artist on the warped yuri/cross-dressing comedy manga Maria Holic, joined Gainax's celebration of the fifth anniversary of Gurren Lagann with a guest artist illustration on the anime studio's weekly welcome page. Get a look after the jump.
It's been over a year since Maria†Holic: Alive, the second season of Shaft's adaptation of Minari Endō's frequently sadistic, frequently absurd yuri girl's school comedy. Still, singer/voice actress Yū Kobayashi is back as the cross dressing Mariya Shidō in new character song single “HANAJI RANRA,” set to be released August 29th. Get a look at its outrageous promo after the jump.
MediaFactory has uploaded a CG promo video for the opening song to Maria Holic Alive, "Runrunriru Ranranrara," sung by veteran voice actor Yuu Kobayashi who voices Mariya in the show. And that's where the normalness for the video below ends.
