Synopsis

Sakurada Jun spends his days online, ordering whatever he takes a liking to, only to return it before the payment is due. Due to psychological trauma from school, Jun generally keeps contact with people as little as possible. One day he finds instructions online that tell him to put his order into his desk drawer. Rubbing it off as a joke, Jun mindlessly does so only to find that his order instantly disappears from his drawer. A package suddenly appears, containing a beautiful antique doll. When wound up, this doll comes to life. Sadly for Jun, this doll Shinku views Jun as an equivalent for a servant. Despite the constant demands Jun now receives from Shinku, she slowly helps him overcome his fears of human contact as well as protect him from the deadly battles that come into his life due to her appearance. Based on the manga by PEACH-PIT.

Rozen Maiden was originally an anime I very hesitant to pick up due to the genre of the anime and the premise of the show being talking dolls, but I am glad I gave it a shot despite it's evident flaws.

Rozen Maiden was produced and released in late 2004 by Studio Nomad, which isn't a renowned company but has had successful shows such as OKHC (Ouran Kokou Host Club) and Kampfer. Not soon after it's release, the infamous "Desu" meme with Suiseiseki (It took me about 5 episodes to pronounce her name correctly) was created on 4Chan and the show became relatively popular ever since. read more

By some coinsidence on the internet, I came into contact with Rozen Maiden through the probably all to known DESU meme, and random recommendations from several websites. I started watching Rozen Maiden somewhere during fall, and finished watching somewhere before December. Here comes my review of the anime.

Story - This is one of the highlights of the Rozen Maiden. The story about Jun and how he comes in contact with the dolls is an action-filled, emotional, yet humorous sotry. The makers of Rozen maiden has managed to make a fine mix between humor, drama and action, and it is rather clear what nature each scene read more

Recommendations

Victorique and Shinku have really similiar personality and they look alike but Shinku is fighter and Victorique is reconstructing chaos :3
Both of these anime revolve around fighting other people and being the last one standing. In fate/stay night, ghosts become servants and fight with there masters. Fate/Stay night has a darker theme to it, with more blood and violence to it.

Opening Theme

"Kinjirareta Asobi" by ALI PROJECT

Ending Theme

"Tomei Shelter" by refio + Haruka Shimotsuki
