Maria-sama ga Miteru
* Maria-sama ga Miteru is based on a series of novels by Konno Oyuki, about girls who attend Lillian Girls' Academy, a Catholic school.
The heroine of the story, Fukuzawa Yumi, is a cute first-year student at Lillian Academy, an admierer of Sachiko (the "Rosa chinensis en bouton"). The series is based around the lives of the other Mountain Lily Council members.
Details: Lillian Academy's Student Council is called the Mountain Lily Council. The Council is composed of three girls, each of whom takes a flower title: Rosa gigantea (white); Rosa chinensis (red); Rosa foetida (yellow). Each Rosa can take a junior, referred to as "Rosa ... en bouton" (burgeoning rose). Each "en bouton" is allowed to pick a junior, referred to as "Rosa ... en bouton petite soeur". The usual pattern is a senior student as Rosa, a second-year student as "en bouton", and a first-year student as "petite soeur" (little sister).
