There’s no denying that Mizuho is beautiful. Normally that might be a bit of a disadvantage seeing as he is an average sort of boy who enjoys sports and games. However, his beloved grandfather has just passed away, and the will includes a strange request; his grandfather wants him to become closer to his mother's memory by attending the same all-girls academy she did for a semester. Obviously he can't hide his gender from the teachers of the school; so he will need their approval, but he also can't expose his gender in front of his fellow students. With the help of his child-hood friend Mariya, his own natural beauty, and just a little bit of luck, Mariya may just be able to fool his fellow students! Considering the turn of events, there may be more to his grandfather's dying request than meets the eye...
Although, I haven't watched the whole Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru, I think that if you liked Maria-sama ga Miteru, you're gonna like Otome. There are of course are some differences - Otome is more like comedy, in Maria-sama there are no boys, pretending to be girls, academy in Otome isn't catholic - but both series are about all-girl schools and refers to relations between them. And also - Otome reminded me of Maria-sama very much from the beginning also because of the similarities of the characters (e. g. Shion-sama is in my opinion very much like Sachiko-sama) and their behaviour (in Otome there's also some kind of "onee-sama system", which resembles Lilian).
Both anime are somewhat similar - they take place in an all girl's school and the senpai have onee-sama to take care of them.
Kaihe is a high school student who has been given the task of becoming the chairperson for St Luminous, a private religious school for girls, after his grandfather died. Kaihe, along with a friend, arrives at the school to take care of business. But soon, mysterious disappearances start to happen. Will he unravel the mystery of the school and its past before its too late?
St. Luminous is focused on a mystery at a private girl's school, so you might not notice the corollation right away. However, relationships are similar, as well as an overall slow, but beautiful feel. Wonderful music as well. This might be one of those faith recommendations... I just think you'd like it. ;)
In a modern world, magic has become a service industry. From transforming a house, to arranging an article in the newspaper, no job is too big or too small for a mage, who are thought of highly in the public eye. Kikuchi Yume, daughter of a famous mage, has finally reached the age of apprenticeship, and must move to Tokyo to find a mentor. Under the tutelage of the esteemed mage (and nightclub owner) Oyamada Masami, she will learn what it means to be able to bring magic to others' lives.
Megumi was a normal kid. He enjoyed getting into fights and mixing it up, and one day he did so in defense of a wizard who was being attacked by bullies. His reward was a magical book that was supposed to grant his wish. The mischievous demon inside the book decided to play a prank on Megumi, though, and instead of turning him into "a man among men," he became a girl. Fast forward to five years later, and Megumi is now entering high school, a tumultuous time for even normal teenagers, let alone a girl who is trying to figure out how become a guy again...
I make this recommendation because bought Maria-sama ga Miteru and Tenshi na Konamaiki have angels staring in them, angels as in girls with class. Where Tenshi na Konamaiki has one angel, Maria-sama ga Miteru has a whole bunch. What I like about bought show is that even though these girls seem to be perfect, looks and elegant personality, they still have their own problems that plague them, how small they may seem. On another note, I'm glad there are still anime shows out there where the female characters attractiveness is not only based on big boobs and skimpy cloths, these two shows are good examples of that.
Sakura Nina, a magic girl from the Magic Kingdom, comes to the human world to continue her training. It would have been a simple scenario, if not for the fact that Nina's magic skills are subpar at best. Nina and her best friend Ayu subsequently find themselves turning normal high school life into crazy adventures, day after day, with a magical twist. But as time goes on, there are questions that must be answered -- why is Nina really in the human world? And why is her childhood friend, a black magic user named Maya, in the human world as well?
I make this recommendation because in bought series there is a strong relationship between bought girls/female main characters. Is it me or do bought main characters of Maria-sama ga Miteru and Ultra Maniac TV really look alike. Just so you know Ultra Maniac TV has magic in the mix, which is totaly absent in Maria-sama ga Miteru and in turn Maria-sama ga Miteru has elegance in the mix, which is totally absent in Ultra Maniac TV. But in bought shows the relationship between the main characters plays an important role.
