Review: Maria Holic photo
Review: Maria Holic
by LB Bryant

Released by Sentai Filmworks, Maria Holic is a Shaft series from way back in 2008. The series takes place at the all girls Ame no Kisaki academy where Kanoko has just transferred in hopes of finding her one true love. Yes, she is a lesbian. A very perverted one at that, but we'll get to that later. 

Upon entering the school grounds, Kanako meets a variety of other students including a beautiful new first-year named Maria. At first the two get along great and Kanako believes that she may have found her true love right away... until she finds out Maria's big secret: she is actually a guy crossdressing as a female and Maria will do anything to make sure that this secret doesn't get out, including moving into the same dorm room as Kanako to keep a close eye on her.

Save big with the latest sale at Right Stuf photo
Save big with the latest sale at Right Stuf
by Pedro Cortes

Hark, what is that sound? That's the sound of money not flooding out of your wallet. It's a sound that comes with sales, like the one currently going on at the RightStuf. The retailer's current big sale features titles from Maiden Japan, Section 23 Films, Sentai Filmworks, basically anything that used have something to do with ADV. Titles are being sold at 40 percent off MSRP. Highlights include Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water Complete Collection on Blu-ray for $59.99, The Familiar of Zero Season One on Blu-ray for $35.99, Another Complete on Blu-ray for $41.99 and a ton more. The sale ends March 7, 2014.

Man, these are some pretty solid prices. A bunch of the pre-orders are significantly less than Amazon, which usually has the best prices for BDs. Even if you have Amazon Prime, the prices for a lot of these titles will be cheaper. If you've been holding off on getting stuff from any of the included companies, I say dive in now!
