Maria is a powerful young witch living with her two familiars in medieval France during the Hundred Years' War against England. As the war rages on and the innocent get caught in its destruction, Maria becomes fed up with the situation and begins using her magic to try and prevent further conflict in hopes of maintaining peace. However, her constant intervention soon attracts the attention of the heavens, and the archangel Michael is sent to keep her from meddling in human affairs. The divine being confronts Maria, and he forbids her from using her powers, issuing a decree that her magic will be taken if she loses her virginity. Though she is now labeled a heretic, Maria adamantly refuses to heed Michael's warning and continues to disrupt the war between the two nations. But as the Church begins plotting to take away the witch's power and put a stop to Maria's interference once and for all, her peacemaking may soon come to an end.

Most people laugh at this anime, but it’s one of the only anime with accurate medieval fighting (just ignore the magic :^) )


What blew me away was the accurate depiction of Medieval warfare in this show. This was heaven for history buffs like me.


Another sexual comedy on the surface which is anything but. Still has some ecchi moments, but the story is far deeper and very entertaining.


A seemingly typical action show ends up a really smart look at religion, the risque and the nature of God. Didn’t see it coming either.


Surprised by the accurate medieval fighting and the very happy ending


This show attacks the Catholic Church and then some. Don’t let the title & art fool you, this is a shockingly political historical drama.


Not even bad. Historical anime are still the best. It also has an ending unlike 90% of everything else.
