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.

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

This definitely isn't a genre I'd usually watch from, but given that, I guess it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

STORY - To be honest, despite this series only being twelve episodes long, it took a while for me to figure out what exactly the plot was, and when I figured it out, I wasn't much impressed. In the beginning, everything seemed to happen pretty arbitrarily. Nothing was really explained, and things just seemed to keep happening for little or no reason. This was annoying, and I found myself losing interest pretty quickly. It was slice-of-life with unexplained fantasy elements. And when the read more

Title: Rozen Maiden

Manga, Anime: Rozen Maiden was originally a manga created by Peach-Pit (also well-known for the manga for DearS and Zombie-Loan), and began running in Monthly Comics Birz in September of 2002. Chapters were released regularly up until March of this year, when it abruptly disappeared from the magazine. No one’s quite sure what happened; the two main rumors are that the editorial department supposedly lost the chapter that Peach-Pit submitted, or that there was a disagreement between Peach-Pit and the editorial department. Either way, the final installment showed up in the July issue, and was the cause of some controversy, read more

Second Review from me, just made for fun because I'm bad at writing them...

Story:
A unique story which you will not find that fast. It's about Jun a boy who hase a fear for going to school, which becomes the servant of the beautiful living doll Shinku...

Art:
Great and unique also art, the dolls are made with clothes you won't see mutch in other animes that's what making it special all over again...

Sounds:
Great voice actors, Shinku sounds like she needs to be just like all the other characters they really fit in. Also the opening and ending theme, Ali Project which is in my option one of read more
