Yumi Fukuzawa is a first-year student who idolizes [[OneeSama Sachiko Ogasawara]], the ''Rosa Chinensis en Bouton''. One autumn day, Sachiko stops Yumi as the two pray to the statue of the Virgin Mary, to correct Yumi for having an improperly tied scarf. Later that day, Sachiko abruptly asks Yumi to be her ''petite soeur'', despite having only just met her. The rest of the ''Yamayurikai'' objects... and Yumi, feeling unworthy, turns Sachiko down. Sachiko vows to [[LesYay win Yumi as her ''soeur'']] by hook or crook...

The student body is led by an [[AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil self-perpetuating oligarchy]] (it's supposedly democratic in theory, but due to 100% incumbency as shown by the failed Rosa Kanina candidacy...) called the ''Yamayurikai'' of three groups of ''soeurs''. The oldest students are three leaders elected in a rubber stamp election by the student body at large. Their ''petites soeurs'', in their second year are upgraded to ''Boutons'' (rosebuds), and so on. This leads to lots of GratuitousFrench such as "''Rosa Chinensis en Bouton Petite Soeur''".

* SchoolgirlLesbians: Just one explicit case, even though [[MemeticMutation references to the show in other media]] ''always'' invoke this across the board. At the same time, it is noteworthy that few of the girls are ever shown to be interested in romance, ''period''. Romantic relationships would likely only distract from the premise of "maidens" with strong emotional bonds. [[WordOfGod Even the author admits]] that the series [[http://okazu.blogspot.com/2008/01/light-novel-maria-sama-ga-miterukira.html should best be seen as a fantasy story]]. None of the girls even use mobile phones, even though it's obviously set in the present.
