Elite Catholic girls' school Lillian Academy has a system whereby senior students adopt freshmen as their "little sisters," signifying the relationship by giving their chosen freshman a rosary. The two are then known as soeurs-French for sisters. Yumi Fukuzawa is asked by junior Sachiko Ogasawara to be her soeur, and is drawn into the inner circle of the Roses, the name given to members of the student council, setting the stage for a whole hothouse of blooming passions, rivalries, and non-incidents. Getting elected to the council, giving Valentine's Day chocolate (normally only given to men), and buying jeans all assume massive significance. Based on a series of novels by Oyuki Konno, the 13-episode series spun off a sequel, VMiW: Spring (MSgM: Haru). Spring is the season of change, covering New Year parties, graduation ceremonies, and the start of the Japanese school year in April, but despite this, nothing much happens in the second series, either. Humorous "out-takes" from the series were added to the DVD in 2004, as the two-minute "specials" Don't Tell the Virgin Mary (Maria-sama ni wa Naisho). A video series followed in 2006.
