Maria†Holic – You have just been warned…

…because I welcome you to the world of Yuri. But this isn’t you ordinary Yuri. Instead this much more twisted and luls filled! But then that is exactly what to expect from something as random yet original as Maria†Holic.

Kanako Miyamae hates all men. In fact, she’s so allergic to them that she breaks out into hives whenever she’s touched by them. So to avoid hooking up with any guys she transfers into a catholic all-girls boarding school to find the perfect girl of her dreams. Unfortunately, the girl of her dreams, Mariya (the most popular student), turns out to be a guy in a dress…

Kanako finds out Mariya’s little secret however he threatens to keep her mouth shut by making her life hell and threating to get her kicked out of school on the mention of Kanako being a lesbian. All the while Kanako knows she can’t ever be with a guy and knows of the hives breakouts, but there’s just something about him/her that makes her pants feel funny…

I’ve only seen the first 3 shows but i think it’s the fuiniest anime of the year!

Time for your Haruhi fix – YouTube Style!

Ok! So if you’re into Anime and haven’t been living under a rock then I’m sure you’ve definitely heard of Suzumiya Haruhi (or Haruhi Suzumiya, call her what you want!). Perhaps you’ve even been dragged through the drama that is the second series (which I won’t believe exists until it’s on a DVD shelf or playing in front of my eyes). Well all you Haruiists can finally get a temporary fix with some YouTube vids released by Kadokawa.

They were meant to be released on the 13th of Feburary subject “to the whim of the SOS Brigade Leader” but instead we got footage of a Nice Boat stating it wasn’t done in time (the video’s been marked as private now).

But now we can rejoice because not only are they out, but Kadokawa even subbed them for us!

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya-chan

This is based off the “official gag manga” of the Suzumiya Haruhi light novel series. For those of you that don’t understand this episode, it’s about Hatuyume. It’s believed that dreaming of Mt Fuji, a Hawk and an Eggplant on the night of the 1st of January will bring good luck for the year.

(And there’s an OP too!)

Nyorōn Churuya-san

This started as a web comic and is based off Tsuruya from the Haruhi series. It got translated, went crazy on 4chan then got turned into an Anime which you just saw on YouTube. She adores smoked cheese and loves to say “nyoro~n” frequently.

Sure, the new YouTube content is no Season two of Haruhi but I’m sure these will keep me entertained. And if you’re not impressed there’s more than Haruhi in your Anime life. Go watch something else, forget they ever existed and enjoy yourself!

Edit: There were links to the YouTube videos but Kadokawa have since taken the first episodes down. Episodes 2 and three are up at time of editing but are expected to follow suit. I’m not going to tell you where they can be downloaded but I’m sure they’re out there. It’s the INTERNET for peat sake!
