Nozomi Entertainment has announced that  the first season of MARIA WATCHES OVER US (Maria-sama ga Miteru) will be added to the streamed anime programming found at www.youtube.com/nozomient.

The first episode, “The Troubling Declaration of Sisterhood,” is now available for viewing to fans in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, and subsequent episodes will be posted weekly. Each episode, beyond the first two, will stream for a limited time, and all episodes will be presented with Japanese audio and a subtitle track that retains the Japanese honorifics.

To celebrate the series’ streaming premiere, Right Stuf and Nozomi are also unveiling Mari-sama creator Oyuki Konno’s answers to fan-submitted questions at the official series site, mariasama.rightstuf.com.

All four seasons of the Maria Watches Over Us anime are currently available on DVD to English-speaking audiences from Right Stuf and Nozomi Entertainment.

Each set features one complete, uncut season and that season’s specials in an art box, along with Japanese audio, English on-screen translations, and two English-language subtitle tracks: one with regular dialogue subtitles and a second, special subtitle track that retains the Japanese honorifics.
 
Plot Summary: The Maria Watches Over Us anime is based upon a series of novels – written by Oyuki Konno and illustrated by Reine Hibiki – that began in 1998 and spans more than 35 volumes. Short stories related to the series have been published in the shoujo (girls’) magazine Cobalt, and a manga adaptation was serialized in the anthology magazine Margaret. The series’ publisher, Shueisha, produced 14 drama CDs (featuring radio-style plays), and there are also several Internet radio plays.

The anime adaptation of Maria-sama ga Miteru – also referred to by fans as “MariMite” – encompasses two, 13-episode TV seasons, a 5-episode OVA (original video animation) as its third season, and a 13-episode fourth season, which aired on Japanese television during 2009.

Maria Watches Over Us features animation by Studio DEEN (Fruits Basket, Gravitation, Rurouni Kenshin), scripting by Reiko Yoshida (ARIA, Boys Over Flowers, Story of Saiunkoku), and direction by Yukihiro Matsushita (Seasons 1-3; Blue Dragon, Sugar Sugar Rune) and Toshiyuki Kato (Season 4; Full Moon O Sagashite, CODE-E).
