Synopsis

After a traumatic incident, Jun Sakurada refuses to interact with the outside world and return to school--he even shuts out his sister, his closest friend. Jun spends most of his time online buying spiritual items that are obvious rip-offs. One day he finds a website that curiously enough asks him to put his order in his desk drawer. Thinking it's a joke, Jun plays along. The following day a suitcase arrives containing a doll named Shinku... that comes to life before his very eyes! Welcome to the world of Rozen Maiden, where Jun must enter an all-new reality to protect and serve a living doll...

A lonely boy surrounded by living dolls in the form of little girls in gothic lolita dresses going on his nerves with their child-like character traits. Sounds like some stupid lolicon-fantasy to you? Well, that's actually what Rozen Maiden looked like to me reading the first volume of this series. I disliked the characters, the scenario and pretty much everything about it.

So, let me tell you about living dolls in the form of little girls in gothic lolita dresses, their adventures in the sea of the unconsciousness and how I completely changed my mind about this manga:

The characters are amazing. This mangas art style is very adorable, and detailed. The ending wasn't amazing, but it's still worth reading. I don't have alot to say about it, but I just think you should read it. Thanks for reading this short review on Rozen Maiden.

Characters that have and want to become "Alice", a title given to someone in a murder game (AYA) and to the perfect doll (RM). They are involved in a game where deaths can be caused and the mysterious scenario is often present with bits of comedy once in a while.
Peach-Pit’s greatest series. Both are extremely good and addictive manga with amazing art and great characters.
The supernatural is a focal point in both: the protagonist (Jun/Michiru) is an introverted person with a rather painful past who comes into contact (unwillingly at first) with beings who shouldn’t be alive: zombies in ZL, living dolls in RM.
Also, Nori (Jun’s sister) & Michiru are very similar.
Both are neither shoujo nor shounen, but take a bit of both categories, and add some tragedy and psychology.
