Maria the Virgin Witch

Today we are thrilled to announce that FUNimation has acquired the rights for Maria the Virgin Witch!

The show will be joining our Winter 2015 Simulcast anime season starting January 11th at 8:30am CT/ 9:30am ET

In the time of the Hundred Years’ War, a young and powerful witch known as Maria leads a reclusive existence. Shunned by the church – but beloved by certain locals – Maria endeavors to use her magic to bring an end to the warfare she so despises. She assists people of all walks of life with the help of her two familiars: a succubus and an incubus with great powers of seduction.  Though she seeks only peace, the archangel Michael despises her use of magic to interfere in human affairs and decrees that should she ever manage to lose her virginity, Maria’s powers will vanish! To ensure that Maria no longer mingles magic with humans, Michael sends the angel Ezekiel to keep a watchful eye on the virgin witch. Don’t miss this intriguing tale of magic, war, and sexual frustration from Production I.G. and the director of Code Geass!

How many of you guessed this title correctly? Our clue was:

“Solve my code and learn the sixes play”

The trick to it is: Every sixth letter (excluding spaces) spells “MARIA”
