Traumatized by school, Jun Sakurada spends his days at home as a shut-in, purchasing things online, only to send them back before the free trial period ends. So when a note appears on his desk, asking whether or not he would wind something, he assumes it was something he ordered and carelessly circles "yes," changing his life forever.

A box arrives with a wind up doll inside, but this is no ordinary toy: after Jun winds her up, she begins walking and talking as if a normal person. With a haughty attitude, she introduces herself as Shinku, the fifth doll in the Rozen Maiden collection, a group of special dolls made by the legendary dollmaker Rozen. These sisters must battle each other in a competition called the Alice Game with the help of a human to ensure victory. The winner becomes Alice, a real girl who is worthy of meeting their creator.

As more sentient dolls end up taking residence in Jun's house, and a foe from Shinku's past makes her appearance, Jun's life becomes far more complicated than he ever thought possible.

I would consider this series to be a pretty good anime series. It isn't too complicated, and it's funny, but it also does get in to some more serious things that the main character is going through.

I discovered this anime because of my love of ball-jointed dolls. Chances are very good that if you like ball-jointed dolls, you will appreciate this anime. Almost everybody I've met that likes ball-jointed dolls has at least heard of it. Most of the characters are dolls, and they are very lovable.

This season's focus is on the main character and a personal hurdle that he's struggling with. I think it's ...

Rozen Maiden has ruined my life, like it has done to so many others.

Less than a week ago, I thought the premise of the show was the stupidest thing I'd ever heard. Suiseiseki was just a meme, and I didn't even know any other characters. But then I watched the first episode. And then the second. And couldn't stop until I was done with Traumend. That was four days ago. By then, I was hopelessly entangled. I was in love with the show and the dolls. I started daydreaming that I was a member of the show's cast, or that I had a Rozen Maiden ...

Mixed Feelings
I will say I am bias to the art style, so it gets a +1 from me.

Overall it is an average anime nothing super interesting and that's fine. I found it to be a nice middle ground of not a very super happy anime but not something too dark like made in Abyss, it is just neutral.

Since the story doesn't really require you to put on am extra large thinking cap to analyze every scene it is perfect watch over the weekend. if nothing else I do recommend listening to the opening theme song.

Things I didn't like about this anime. It doesn't really help us ...
