Ranma Saotome (16) is a young martial arts expert plagued by a singular curse: during training in China, he and his father fell into the Cursed Springs of Jusenkyo. Anyone who falls into one of these springs, as soon as he comes into contact with cold water, is destined to transform himself into the animal or person who drowned in it hundreds or thousands of years ago; to get back to your appearance you have to get wet with hot water.

Genma Saotome, Ranma’s father, falls into the spring where a giant panda drowned, while Ranma falls into the spring where a girl was drowned. Ranma also suffers from a debilitating cat phobia that makes him able to become, even if only mentally, a cat himself in behavior and movements (but not in appearance).

In Nerima, Japan, Soun Tendo (Genma’s longtime friend) informs his three daughters Kasumi (19), Nabiki (17) and Akane (16), that one of them is to marry Ranma (whom they have never met) to secure the future of the Tendo dojo. When a panda and a girl arrive in the Tendo house with a great crash, Soun believes Ranma is actually a woman and passes out. Ranma’s secret is later discovered by Akane; Ranma, regaining the appearance of a boy thanks to a hot bath, comes out of the tub just as Akane enters.

After Genma’s explanations of the curses, the two older sisters nominate Akane for the engagement. But Akane is furious about what happened and she and Ranma start arguing, until, at the boy’s insults, she throws the table over his head. Ranma is now officially engaged to Akane, but the troubles for the two have only just begun.

At school, Kuno Tatewaki, madly in love with Akane, wants to defeat him in order to break the engagement. The unfortunate Kuno will also fall in love with the female version of Ranma; Kodachi Kuno, Tatewaki’s sister, also falls in love with Ranma (albeit as a boy). In addition to her, several other alleged girlfriends will come forward in the story.

Ryoga Hibiki is a historical rival of Ranma and has no sense of direction. He has only one goal in mind – to take revenge on Ranma for dropping him into the cursed springs, which forces him to transform into a black pig. After seeing Akane, he falls madly in love with her, and as a pig he will also become her pet, P-Chan. The story therefore revolves all around Ranma, who is admired by both girls and boys, on his transformations and on the difficult relationship with Akane, and the continuous attempts of the protagonist to go back to being a normal boy one day.

Mariya acts in this way motivated by a clause of the will of her grandmother, the former director of the institute, and incidentally, to form her harem.

With her secret discovered, Mariya forces Kanako to keep it hidden at all costs. As the story progresses, comic and embarrassing situations develop in which Mariya tests Kanako so that she keeps the secret of her cross-dressing. On the other hand, Kanako meets the other girls at the institute, each with her own story, and as the series progresses, the development of the relationship between Kanako and Maria will be observed.

Maria†Holic is a series with a shōjo-ai character which involves topics such as lesbianism, androphobia and transvestism.

Three countries, the Holy Land of Simulacrum, the Argentum Archipelago, and the High Lands of Plumbum, are at war for various reasons (political, climatic, economic and religious), some of which are vital for the health of some of them.

What is more, on this planet, all human beings are born female, but each country addresses the problem of reproduction in its own way by changing the sex of certain citizens, or by a religious ritual at the Source during the transition to adulthood (at 17) to definitively decide on sex (this is the case of the Holy Land), or by medical means from birth (this is the case of the Archipelago).

At the beginning of history, the Holy Land has the advantage over all other nations thanks to an unknown technology (even they don’t know its true nature), but which it nevertheless possesses. It is the Simoun, an airship powered by a helical engine that is able to fly with unparalleled ease, and also well above the clouds, unlike the machines of other countries which risk being struck by lightning at any time.

But the Simoun is also a deadly weapon, capable of eliminating an entire enemy fleet by drawing patterns in the sky called Emerald Ri Mājon, whose destructive capacity is impressive. However, flying on a Simoun is not for everyone. Only girls who have not yet decided on their final sex have the honor: they are the priestesses of the Simulacrum called “Simoun Sibyllae”.

Their role, before the start of hostilities, was confined to drawing Emerald Ri Mājon in order to pray and honor Tempus Spatium, or to search for the former Emerald Ri Mājon lost within a group of twelve Simoun Sibyllae composing a “Chor”, the “Chor Tempest” being the most famous. But the conflict between the three countries has made priestesses warriors forced to fight on the battlefield for the salvation of the Holy Land.
