[New January 2009] Maria-sama ga Miteru 4th (マリア様がみてる 4thシーズン)

Genres: Shoujo / Yuri /Drama
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: Elegant hard edge

Summary: Continues where the OVA (the third series) left off...

First impression score: 80 ~ Mysteriously interesting shoujo anime...hmm....

Personal comments: Normally I wouldn't be able to withstand shoujo anime for more than 2 episodes, especially at the shoujo level like this. However, for some unknown reason, Maria-sama ga Miteru managed to grab me for more than three series. This is probably the longest shoujo series I've followed and will ever follow.

Unless you have seen the first three series (TV 1, TV 2, OVA), there is no point watching this, because there are so many background stories in play that you wouldn't be able to understand how or why people are acting the way they are. The good news is both first and secon season of TV series are available for rental from Netflix, though the OVA is still nowhere to be found. I'm sure you can find the torrent for the OVA somewhere on the internet.
