Maria-sama ga Miteru's story revolves around the students of the Lillian Girls' Academy (a Catholic school), and can be considered character-driven, focusing on interactions between the characters rather than any sort of ongoing plot or goal to attain. At Lillian Girls' School, there is a tradition known as the sœur system (French for sister), in which a second, or third-year student, the grande sœur (big sister), will give her rosary to a junior student, the petite sœur (little sister), and promise to look after them and guide them.
Maria-sama ga Miteru is originally a series of light novels written by Oyuki Konno. It also spun an 8-volume manga adaptation drawn by Satoru Nagasawa. It was later adapted into a 4 season anime series which originally run from January 2004 to March 2009.
