Maria-sama ga Miteru/ Mary is Watching You.

this anime has a verrry religious tone to it, one I’m not sure I can take. It takes place in an all girl’s school. I also think there will end up being some lesbian overtones to the whole thing. So that's an interesting mix to be sure.

The opening of the first episode resembles something you might find in a sorority rush function. One girl is choosing another to be her little sister. Then we go to flashback. we see the girl that was chosen earlier, being told to tie her scarf by the girl that chose her. then we see her at school, and see one of the other women that were chosen as a little sister. Bring in a photographer friend. She has a picture of the incident this morning and our lead girl wants it. She ends up having to go see Sachiko (her soon to be big sister) and get her permission. she goes to the house where the rose chicks have their meeting and all craziness breaks loose! Things are explained, things are confused, things just go everywhere. Bets are made, things go crazy, it’s weird. So, you’ll just have to watch it.

the songs are mellow and have a kind of cathedral feel to them. Like a choir of angels kind of thing. But it’s not bad. The art is nice. it has water color backgrounds in some scenes which is very well done. The art isn’t really impressive, but it’s still good.

I don’t like it very much. It’s just kind of ehh. Has it’s goo parts and bad parts but I’m not interested in it enough to keep watching it.
