MARIA WATCHES OVER US
The setting of “Maria-sama Ga Miteru”, also referred to as “Maria watches over us” which has been extremely popular among girls in Japan is a prestigious high school called The Lillian Girls Academy, where well-bred young ladies gather.
In order to pass on the school’s pure and clean traditions to newer students, the school has an anything-but-ordinary system called ”soeur (means “sisters” in French) system”, by which each student picks her own “little sister” from the younger generation and becomes her mentor as “big sister.”
This is a school drama unfolded by a bunch of cute girls under the statue of Virgin Mary of the school watching over.
The secret of this title’s charm may come from sweet and romantic feeling the viewers can experience as they take a glimpse of this virtual school life through the eyes of the heroin, Yumi.
