Maria†Holic takes place in the same universe as Girls Bravo.

Kanako exists to karmically balance out Yukinari, who breaks out in hives at the touch of a girl.

there's a yukinari/kanako/mariya love triangle

Mariya and Shizu are Light and Misa's children.

Whether or not alcohol was involved in their conception; Misa gave birth to them shortly before committing suicide after Light's death. They were adopted into a fancy (and eccentric) family. Interestingly, Ryuk did try to offer Mariya the Death Note, but playing mind games with Schoolgirl Lesbians is more entertaining.

Mariya is secretly Tsundere for Kanako.

Think about it. It's possible.

All the girls at school are actually lesbians, Mariya's just fucking around with Kanako

Kanako's back story is actually a Stealth Parody of Rape and Switch

Seriously, a girl turning lesbian from having her bloomers and recorder stolen by boys is too over-the-top to be taken seriously. Kanako would have turned out lesbian no matter what, she's just too Genre Blind for her own good and uses this as an excuse. Plus Rape and Switch / Does Not Like Men shows up used straight in a lot of Girls Love series, and since this is a Deconstructive Parody of one....

Kanako was a lecherous (male) pervert in life

Kanako seems to be one of those classic 'male pervert' types in anime transplanted into a female body at an all-girls school. She was a male pervert character, then she died (and as a result, lost her memory.) She is currently being karmically processed, which is why she's subject to such abuse, and also why she is surrounded by irony. However, she has yet to give up all her voyeuristic habits, such as secretly taking photos of the other young girls . This also explains the apparent supernatural elements and the medium awareness.

The changes in Mariya and Kanako's characters in Alive aren't flanderization, its Character development

Mariya becomes kinder and more helpful to Kanako as time goes on. Sounds like character development right?

However, Kanako gets hit with the short end of the stick, becoming more and more perverted. This can be any of the following reasons or a combination of them.

1) Being around beautiful girls (and Mariya) did not help her perverted tendencies at all, only making them worse.

2) Mariya and Matsurika's torture has made her more willing to put herself in painful situations for possible yuri scenes.

3) All the blood loss and injuries have led to Kanako becoming more idiotic.
