Maria Holic 01: Sugar, Spice, And Everything Nice

This is a masterpiece probably comparable to that of Picasso's works.

There be Yuri.

OH HOLY MOTHER MARY!!! Where do i even begin with the praises i have for this anime. Its like THE GOD EMPEROR has taken notice of my preferences and tried his best to stick every form fantasy i could ever want into a neat package of an anime. Yuri, traps, lolis with animal ears, what more could a mortal ask for? Though i was initially unpleasantly surprised due to the fact that the tunnel trip into the academy felt somewhat similar to Rosario + Vampire (an anime which i would love to wipe from my mind).

DAT EAR

However delicious the premise of this anime might be i have to admit that it was the hilarious comedy that played out between the characters and Kanako's over the top reactions that cemented its position in my current anime hierarchy. Mariya while being the sadistic trap that she (note that i refuse to use HE ) of the anime also strikes me as somewhat of an interesting character. What reason could she possibly have to dress as a woman (albeit an extremely cute one)? Well i guess that is one question that would be answered later on.

Seriously. You don't want to know where THAT hand went to.

Animation wise, it was not as abstract as i thought it would be with SHAFT at the helm of the production (their prior works bearing testament to their barely controlled lunacy). Which is a welcome shift IMO. Production quality was stellar all round and if there were any moments of QUALITY I missed it completely.

A GREAT SUCCESS THIS EPISODE WAS.

  1. Yuri girl that hates guys falling for a completely moe girl that turns out to be a sadistic trap that goes moe at himself all the time? Right, I’m watching this. :lol:

  2. God Emperor? He is who nameless but for the epitaph of Bob? Or Venerate the immortal God Emperor (This his full name actually)?

  3. Jason will blog this. He is burnt out… but the traps will bring him back.

  4. Sounds like WIN.
    Tastes like WIN.
    Feels like WIN.
    Smells like WIN.
    Looks like WIN.

    I’m pretty sure it’s a Show ▼

  7. Just watched the first episode. I FUCKING LOVE THIS ANIME!! :grin:
    The groping of that precious male organ was my favorite part. Fakes boobs second. :roll:

  8. @Amon :
    Considering my fanatical following of warhammer 40K novels i would say its the Immortal God Emperor in this case. :wink:

    @Mini :
    The trap would be the blonde girl. :roll:

    @Mika :
    indeed the groping was rather exceptional. one usually sees males groping parts of the female anatomy but not the reverse of it. :lol:

  9. Trappu…

  10. Setsuna : Thou has activated my trap card! The correct answer is : There is only one God and he is the Emperor. The Inquisition will be here shortly to arrest you for heresy. So long and thanks for the all the fish.

  11. GenderBender theme is one of the reasons which makes anime so full of mindf*cks and hilarity rolled into one.
    Watching anime blows minds and sanity.

  12. hahahaha, glad to see others who share my taste in traps, lolis, and yuri.

  14. No surprise that I like the only guy in the show.

  15. There shall be a penalty for keeping information that Di Gi Charat is in this show.

  16. I think I like the archery girl (not Mariya)… because I’m resistant (but NOT immune) to traps…
