“Will you wind it?”

Fans of the Rozen Maiden series are already familiar with what happens when Jun circles “Wind”, but what happens when he chooses “Do Not Wind”? That is what Rozen Maiden Season 3 (as people are calling it) answers. We now see Jun grown up as a university student, with a job, and even a love interest. Personally, I enjoyed observing Jun’s life outside of his room. Based on the second series of the Rozen Maiden manga, I love the fresh take Peach-Pit took on this classic series; yet, in a genius way, they were able to tie together the older Jun with read more

Because I'm feeling awesome today, I'm gonna write a review of Rozen Maiden: Season 3. May include minor spoilers. I edited a few typos.

I'm pretty sure most people are aware that Rozen Maiden (2013) is not really a season 3, but because most people called it that, I will leave it as Rozen Maiden: Season 3 for easy identification.

Story: 7

Let's begin. To those people who have watched Season 1 and Season 2, you will realize that season 3 has nothing to do with Season 1 and 2. Because, Season 3 is based on the Jun who did not wound the key. (Hey, at least that read more

Everyone has his or her own talents. Whether you're good at drawing, playing a sport, or even making a simple meal, there's a special hidden talent within everyone. For a particular boy named Jun Sakurada, he has a talent too. We should all be proud of our accomplishments right? Well, that doesn't fit the case with Jun because after a particular embarrassing moment in his earlier school years, there's that fear of anxiety that followed him for the rest of his life. Has that ever happened to you before? Maybe but did it ever escalate it to a point where a person almost completely changes read more

Rozen Maiden Zuruckspulen appears to function as a sort of reboot on the Rozen Maiden franchise as we are reintroduced to Jun and the Rozen Maidens as they deal with an enemy threat in the form of new Maiden Kirakisho and crossing into a parallel timeline where an adult Jun never gave life to Shinku. Before I address the new content of this addition to Rozen Maiden, I do want to address the major issue of this series coming with familiarity of viewers to the franchise. The show's creators make it under the assumption that you are already familiar with elements and characters to the read more

Although they don't have the similar style of presenting themselves, both series follows the format in which deals with master/servants in the conflict of a game. The winner of the game will achieve not only glory but also a reward.

Each servant from both series is unique and possesses their own abilities. It is however also up to the guide of their masters to achieve victory.

Both series also contains supernatural themes. 
The mood of the 2013 adaptation of Rozen Maiden has a similar feeling in comparison to Another. Otherwise, there's also the themes of dolls present in both series as well as a mysterious atmosphere. Both series also deals with a normal boy whose life becomes abnormal after a faithful day.

Both series' OP song are also handled by ALI PROJECT. 
Both anime have this parallel world universe that makes the MC decide on his path. 
Both has the MC contracting to supernatural creature to fight and develop. Both shows also have their characters facing with their psychological issues and "the alter ego" stuffs to move forward. Although they both have mysterious feel, the atmosphere are quite different. Rozen Maiden is taking melancholic approach while Persona 4 is taking more light-hearted and action approach. 
- Both have dark and creepy atmosphere and mysteries
- Both shows have gloomy hikkikomori main male lead (well, in Rozen Maiden 2013 it's ex-hikikomori, though) who's accompanied by a mysterious little female "beings" : A malware girl in Mekaku, and a victorian doll in RM.
- Both shows also have a large and colorful casts whose supernatural powers.
- Both shows deals with multiple timelines and tragedy.
- Both shows have a side story (or back story) in every episode which were told in a way that it feels that it belongs to a fairy tale books.

Mekaku focused to various characters  read more 
Although this shows have diffrent setups both touch hikiomori problem.

While NHK ni Youkoso do it in more realistic way and show how to out from closed trap, Rozen Maiden bring us to magic world of dolls and show us how single decisions affect our life.
