Twisted, warped, and disturbed... loved it 25 Jan. 2014
By M. J. Petty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Maria Holic is a sadistic romp over your morals, that won't stop until they're six feet under.

A young girl goes to a Catholic all girls school, just like her mother, who found true love there with her teacher. Only difference is she's looking for true love among the other female students. Like a shark in a fish school this little lady is is scenting blood. Unfortunately it's hers, as she fires off gallons of blood from her nose at even the thought of anything sexy.
She gets a roommate who appears to be everything a young lesbian could desire, beautiful, intelligent, and demure....but may in fact be devil (figuratively). Secrets, plots, and a maid (who might well be a descendant of the original iron maiden), quickly turn the dream of true love into a nightmare of forced servitude.
Maria Holic despite its seemingly adult nature, is actually light on fan service, as every time something might occur, mount nosebleed erupts in all its fury.
If your looking for ecchi, this is not for you. If your looking for a twisted good time with the joys of manipulation, and bottomless wells of inventive ways to make someone's life a living hell, this is a great series.

An english dub for a classic series 21 Nov. 2013
By Anime Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
Kanako is in the place of her dreams, she is going to the same school as her mother did in order to find her true love. But unlike her mother who found the prince of her dreams, she is looking for a princess (she is afraid of boys to the point of hives). But on the first day, she gets lost on the grounds and runs into one who she thinks is the perfect girl for her - until she gets a reaction from her. Then the same girl ends up being her room mate with her live in maid - sounds good until she discovers "her" little secret. So now Kanako needs to not only keep a secret that could shake up the entire school, fight off the anger of other girls when she gets the attention of the hottest girl in school (and she is sure she is female), and survive the constant nosebleeds she gets seeing all the other attractive girls in several states of undress. School life is about to get interesting.

I watched this series in orginal dub and it was great. One of the first series that has a alternate lifestyle main character and her wish to find that happy ending. Now that it is coming out with an english track i do hope they can keep the same magic the original series had.

Best Sentai Dub of 2014? 1 Mar. 2014
By KL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
This show might best be thought of by anime fans as "Excel Saga 2.0" as it is just as zany, surreal and at least as fun. Fittingly, the two main characters of this are voiced by the veteran actresses who voiced the leads in Excel Saga all those years ago and they, in this dub that has been a LONG time coming, hit it out of the park here; Kanako is eerily similar to Excel Excel and is a role that actress Jessica Calvello seems "born to play". Depending upon how closely one follows Sentai dubs one might be wary of Chris Ayres as a dub director, and rightly so, but he delivers a more-than-solid dub here. This is his best dub to-date. While the support characters aren't quite matching the pace of the veteran lead actresses in this they aren't trailing by all that much.

(Due to odd circumstances with this release, this bluray has been out for over a month now (albeit not from Amazon) and the dub has been streaming on Anime Network)

This show is purely comedic at heart, though it is a somewhat dark comedy. Despite the continued theme of light sadism the show always stays more comedic than dark. In my opinion, the best part of the show was the continuing dynamic between Kanako and Maria. Unfortunately as the show progresses Maria becomes a bit marginalized as a character (this is, in a 4th-wall-breaking incident, joked about by Maria) and that dynamic is lessened; as the Japanese actors point out, 80% of the lines in the show are Kanako's and that's pretty accurate for both dubs. I think that the show suffers for it but not enough to warrant a loss of a star.

It should be noted that, in addition to featuring what are essentially a drag queen and a lesbian, this show espouses a narrative about homosexuality that does NOT jibe with the "Politically Correct" one that is prevalent in America. If that might offend you, know that it really only comes up once in the English dub. Additionally, the show does employ some "epithets" to, in a rather "tough love" manner, refer to the lesbian character and drag queen. I commend Chris Ayres and Sentai Filmworks for having the guts to include these in the dub as the show would have felt cheapened had they censored them from the dub.

EXTRAS:
-----------
->Sentai Trailers (So I can't Play H,MEDAKA BOX Abnormal,Girls und Panzer, MM! ; except for the Girls und Panzer trailer, which is dubbed, the rest are just the Textless Openings of their respective shows )

->Japanese Commercials (nothing to write home about, several commercials are essentially the same. They do mention that the Japanese DVD of this features Japanese commentary tracks but they do not appear on Sentai's release. 02:37 runtime)

-> Japanese Promo Video (Slightly humorous but unremarkable. runtime 2:05)

-> Amenokisaki Holy Night Festival (the Japanese booked a church on Christmas-12/25/08 @ Ivy Hall Aogaku Kaikan Glory Chapel-in a time slot right before an actual religious ceremony was to be held, to run a promo event for this show that involved the cast, series creator and a live rendition of the OP. Humorous, but mildly sacrilegious. Subbed, 22:03 runtime.)

->Club AT-X Interview (3 main actresses carrying on good-naturedly while answering stereotypical questions about the show. Offers some humorous insights from the actresses as to how they perceived their, ah, deviant characters. It also reveals that the Japanese recorded this show in group recording sessions. Far more energetic and entertaining that the usual such Japanese extra but... Surprisingly high video quality for the circumstances and for 12/21/08. run time: 19:20)

The bluray menus are not animated. The backgrounds are stock stills of the series and the most interaction that comes from the menu is that the menu choices are "highlighted" when the player's cursor hovers over them.
Hilarious 13 Sept. 2014
By Cliu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I first watched this years ago in Japanese with English subtitles and loved it. It is rather weird at times and is not an anime that one should ever take seriously. The stories and humor can be absolutely bizarre at times i.e. one of the characters has cat ears and looks like a little girl for no reason and one of the characters always has something that someone is in need of no matter how odd or obscure the item is. The comedy is whacky, slapstick and at times dark and all the characters are well done. I especially liked the maid Matsurika. The dubbing was also well done for the most part. The only characters who's voices I didn't love were Nanami, Sachi and Yozuru.
Worried about English dub, but it pulls through 21 Mar. 2014
By Rodney Phantasma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Maria Holic has always been a favorite of mine. When I heard it was getting a Blu-Ray release I was estatic Then I noticed it had a new dub with it and I rocketed through the roof while stars flew out my butt, but there is always that feeling of "oh crap can the English dub pull through. Well I'm happy to say it did. Jessica Calvello's Kanoko is even funnier at times than Asami Sanada's version. even though Jessica has harder times with the serious scenes this show barely has any sdo it's hard to mark it down. Monica Rahl is brilliant as always pulling off a farily convencing boys voice as Maria and doing an admerable job with the innocent persona that he uses to get by. But the real surprises are Caitlynn French as Matsurika and Illich Guardiola as Father Kanae. Who honestly outshine thier Japanese dub counterparts. I implore you to pick this up, if you don't have a blu-ray player your a fool the PS3 has a great one and a stand-alone blu-ray is cheaper than ever. So, buy it... what are you doing BUY IT!
