I will apologize beforehand because i am not used to making reviews. What you will read is my opinion. However, keep in mind that I am writing in the most objective view as possible (hopefully).

Story 9/10

There IS actually a plot. There is a reason behind the main characters' romance, and the bond is deep. Although, I feel that certain needed details were neglected or not brought out clearly. Sometimes, I felt that the plot was rushed.

Art 9/10

Personally, the art style is not to my taste. However, the animation is done beautifully, and I think the art style grows on you. The art style does match read more

Maiden Rose is a very resumed compilation of a manga that has much more into it than what we could expect at first sight. We have two countries in a war, a prince from a country that has a knight from the other country. A Shakesperian plot, that - due to lack of film time - was never explained. And this is the main flaw of this anime. However, it counters for having a plot. This by itself is already a great achievement for a BL animation, where they often forget about plotlines and characters to please the rabid fangirl.

The art was cared and clean, read more

_Warning, Spoilers_ This was a very good ova with a nice set of art, music and characters. It seems to be based around the second world war and centers on the Gay relationship between a Japanese man (and Prince I believe) named Taki and a German man named Klaus. The art was good and the voice actors fit the characters perfectly. I liked how cute taki was especially in the chibi specials at the end of the episodes and Klaus was for the most part a nice guy.

But Despite the good points of the anime, I found the story lacking somewhat. As read more

Like most short shounen ai/yaoi given only a short amount of OVA it really falls short compared to the manga. If you're curious about the manga or just the story/setting/characters it still might be a great place to start.

I do however feel sorry for the anime in this aspect as I feel like how the anime portrays their relationship isn't as beautifully or true as in the manga, might be due to the short amount of time of course. From what you can get out of 2 OVA's the anime isn't bad, you just wish for more like always.

If you are short on read more
