Two soldiers from warring countries are bound by a pledge as master and servant. Taki Reizen is a Commander of sublime beauty, shouldering the fate of his nation.

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

Read the manga...seriously. The actual story hardly comes across in this OVA but the manga is pretty deep and goes into the characters backgrounds and builds up the relationship between Taki and Klaus. The manga is IMO a work of art full of feels. Also, THAT scene in the OVA isn't half as brutal in the manga and in the manga there is explanation around why it happened. Anyway, its worth watching for the chibis at the end.

Sorry if this is a sucky review, I just wanted to put it out there that the manga is actually excellent so people don't miss out!

_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
