Enter the eccentric and comedic universe of Maria Holic (Japanese: まりあ†ほりっく, Chinese: 玛利亚狂热), a series that combines elements of slapstick comedy, cross-dressing, and romantic antics. Adapted from the manga by Minari Endo, the anime follows the misadventures of Kanako Miyamae, a high school girl who enrolls in an all-girls Catholic school in search of her ideal yuri partner, inspired by her parents’ own romantic story.

However, her romantic quests are constantly thwarted by her allergic reaction to men, and the situation complicates further when she discovers that the most popular girl in school, Maria Shidou, whom she initially falls for, is actually a cross-dressing boy. The series delights in the absurdity and misunderstandings that ensue from this secret, as Kanako navigates school life filled with eccentric characters and bizarre situations.

Maria Holic is celebrated for its unique blend of humor, intricate plots, and a vibrant cast of characters. The series satirizes common tropes in anime while exploring themes of love, identity, and deception in a highly stylized and humorous way.
