Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: 10 Japanese movie theaters will celebrate the return of the Maria-sama ga Miteru (Maria Watches Over Us or MariMite) anime this January by holding a New Year's Eve sneak preview of the new fourth season premiere — and a digital 3D summary of the story thus far. Maria-sama ga Miteru 4th Season adapts Oyuki Konno and Reine Hibiki's light novels about the personal relationships within the student body of Lillian Girls' Academy.
The main attraction of the Maria-sama ga Miteru Ōmisoka Special Event (Maria Watches Over Us New Year's Eve Special Event) will be the first public showing of the first episode from the fourth season. However, the event will also have the first official 3D footage from the franchise. The Maria-sama ga Miteru Special Digest will recap the previous two television seasons and the video season using digital 3D technology. The event will also screen special messages from the two main voice actresses, Kana Ueda (Yumi Fukuzawa) and Miki Itou (Sachiko Ogasawara).
