Maria † Holic: Alive (2011)
まりあ†ほりっく あらいぶ

Maria Holic Alive

Kanako was a high school girl, attending the all-girls Catholic academy. however, Kanako was only interested in girls, who cannot stand being in the same room with boys, not to mention being touched. it was her second year in high school, she hoped to find a female partner. her ideal partner was Mariya, who was also her roommate, but he turned out to be a cross-dressing boy, n a sadistic one too. together with his maid Shinouji, he enjoyed torturing Kanoko by bringing unfortunate situation upon her.

though the series was commented to be quite popular, i found it difficult to enjoy. it tried to appear smart, with humors that created out of pervertedness. with Mariya n Shinouji against her, Kanoko constantly tried to find some ways to get them back, which of course never did turn out the way she intended it to be, or worst, backfired on herself. it was all thanked to her flight of fantasies that often came out of nowhere, n also her lack of luck. personally, i didn't feel any depths in the anime other than Mariya's sadistic characteristic, to purposely went against Kanoko.
