Nozomi Entertainment's Maria Watches Over Us License Expires

posted on by Karen Ressler

Nozomi Entertainment revealed on Thursday and confirmed with ANN that its Maria Watches Over Us license is expiring. The company is selling through its final stock of all four seasons for US$12 per season.

The anime adapts Oyuki Konno's light novel series. Nozomi Entertainment describes the first season:

When Yumi Fukuzawa entered the Lillian Girls' Academy, a prestigious all-girls Catholic school in Tokyo, she never imagined she would catch the eye of beautiful and demure Sachiko Ogasawara, one of the school's most popular students. Now Sachiko has offered to be Yumi's soeur, her "sister" and guide for all her years at the academy. The whole idea has Yumi completely flustered - after all, they hardly know each other!

The entire campus is abuzz with rumors about the two of them, but Yumi is conflicted over accepting Sachiko's offer. While she admires Sachiko, being her soeur would also mean constantly being at the center of the entire school's attention!

Nozomi Entertainment originally licensed the seasons in 2008 and 2009. The company most recently rereleased the seasons in liteboxes from 2012-2013.

Thanks to Rukiia for the news tip.
