Advertising for the seventh volume of Minari Endo's Maria Holic manga has revealed that the second season of the television anime adaptation has been green-lit. Akiyuki Shinbo is returning to direct the animators at Shaft.
Maria Holic's story centers on a sophomore named Kanako who enrolls in all-girls school because she has a phobia of men and wants to find her destined yuri partner. She meets a captivating freshman named Mariya who fits her criteria — except her seemingly ideal mate happens to be a sadistic, cross-dressing boy.
The first anime season aired in Japan from January to March of last year. Section23 Films shipped the first season on DVD in North America this past February, and Tokyopop is publishing the fifth volume of the manga in North America next month.
