Maria Sama ga Miteru

12 06 2008

I am not really a fan of anime but this caught my attention and I thought oh how nice a decent normal story with a Catholic side. Then I read more and found out some people claim the series has homoerotic themes http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maria-sama_ga_Miteru

From the wikipedia page ”

This lily imagery is also used as a reference to yuri:[5] the story has some elements of romance between female characters; the use of lilies reinforces this in subtext, as do the names of the student council and of the school itself.[5] The series is only explicit about this sort of relationship once in a flashback, but many of the sisters have relationships that go beyond simple friendship.”

One of the reasons I am not very interested in anime is just what Maria sama ga miteru has, a somewhat hidden perverse side, often involving school girls. The sexualization of school girls is one thing I find disgusting about Japan. It occurs too often in anime, and even in general society you don’t even have to be looking for it to find it.
