Canaan Wiki

Maria Oosawa (大沢 マリア, Ōsawa Maria) is one of the main characters of the series. She is Canaan's best friend.


Maria is a young woman aged 21 with long, blonde hair and golden-brown eyes.

Her normal attire consists of a white, short-sleeved shirt with a black tank-top underneath, a brown choker, black shorts and black-brown combat boots.




Usually seen smiling, Maria is one of the main characters of the series. Two years ago during the events of 428: Fūsa Sareta Shibuya de, she was mistakenly abducted by Daisuke Endo, who mistook her for her sister, Hitomi, who has bombay blood type. Alphard hired Daisuke on purpose to kidnap Maria and and she would later infect Maria with the Ua virus so that her father and head virologist at Okoshi Pharmaceuticals, Kenji Oosawa, would go into the laboratory where the anti viral is stored and cure Maria. This would give Alphard the opportunity to destroy the Okoshi Pharmaceutical lab while also taking Hitomi’s blood with the antiviral in it at a different point in time, so that Alphard has a monopoly over the antiviral. While her life was saved thanks to her father's anti-virus, the trauma she endured during the Shibuya incident made her suffer amnesia. As a result, she can't remember certain events during that incident; including not having met Alphard Al Sheya before. Prior to the Shibuya incident, she befriended Canaan after being saved from hoodlums during a trip somewhere in the Middle East. As her dream is to become a photographer, she became the partner of Minoru Minorikawa before the pair's assignment in Shanghai and her subsequent reuniting with Canaan.

Skills and Abilities[]



Canaan is Maria's best friend who first crossed paths with her in the Middle East. Maria greatly admires Canaan and wishes to "shine" as brilliantly as she does, which serves as one of her motivations for pursuing photography. Canaan in turn dearly treasures Maria and tries to protect her whenever she is threatened by the dangerous forces Canaan often goes up against. Despite their bond, Canaan ultimately decides to cut ties with Maria in order to distance her from the deadly mercenary life that Canaan is entrenched in following her final battle with Alphard.


  • It is heavily suggested throughout the majority of the anime that Canaan and Maria's relationship is beyond friendship and that they have romantic feelings for each other.
