If you're looking for anime similar to Maria the Virgin Witch, you might like these titles.
A boy named Kouta Shibaki, who suddenly gets a bunch of magical tickets one day. Rurumo, a witch that was demoted to an apprentice witch, uses these tickets as training in the human world, and Kouta can use these tickets to grant wishes, which are part of Rurumo’s training. However, the catch is that each ticket that is used shortens Kouta’s lifespan, so will he help out Rurumo, even at the expense of his own life?
Both series have the main character as witch but not the typical witch you would think of. The stories seem to be a tad different but if you like the main character of Junketsu no Maria then you'll like the main character in Magimoji Rurumo.
The way both series are different is Junketsu no Maria seems to be more focused on a witch who hates wars and seems to fall for a guy who kisses her hand. Magimoji Rurumo is about a guy who saves Rurumo and falls in love with her.
I'm sure that if you like one series you'll like the other.
*I'll edit this as more episodes of Junketsu no Maria are aired because I'm sure it will have more in common with Magimoji Rurumo by the time it finishes it's run.

Well I dunno maybe just because there both funny and have sexual content :p Just watch it XD Of course there are many differences like fantasy and day to day life but like I seed they are a lot of fun although Maria the virgin witch has more serious parts.

Since long ago, the wolf goddess Holo has honored a contract to bless the rural village of Pasloe with fertile harvests; and in return she has been celebrated and worshipped by the villagers. But as mankind advances, the people have begun to take command of nature for themselves and have made their own god to worship. Holo finds that she is paid little more than lip service, if not outright mocked; and considering the contract annulled, she takes human form and enlists the aid of a passing merchant, Kraft Lawrence, to return to her home in the snowy forests to the north. As they journey together, Kraft finds that he has plenty to learn from this capricious god, and she from him as well.
The show I instantly thought of when I started watching Maria the Virgin Witch was Spice and Wolf, because of the parallels of fantasy, trouble with the church and a medevial setting. I loved both shows and the more I watched MVW the more it reminded me of SW, with a vivid, energetic and snippy protagonist with a more down to earth and more sensible counterpart.
Watching Maria deal with the conflicts of war and the want for peace paralleling Holo's need to hide from the church, and fight the church for her own freedom, as well as bring down malicious schemes using her wits. Both protagonists fight the church, laws of nature and dark sides of the world in different ways, but in the end the pair of them are both at one with nature and fighting for their own rights and beliefs, Maria taking the more extroverted and straight on approch, righting them with magic, creatres new to the human eye, and motivational speeches, while Holo fights the system from the inside, using her brains to trick and cause mayhem from within, breaking down the system.
If you enjoyed Maria the Virgin Witch or Spice and Wolf I strongly suggest giving the other show a try, and even if you have seen neither shows, both series have strong characters, all of them introduced really well, moments of humor, with serious understones that make you pause for a moment and think. If you're looking for a laugh and a show that will pull you in entirely, these series are for you.
