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:

Rozen Maiden is a very touching series, but it also many amusing and funny parts as well. It's very character driven, with a variety of different characters to take an interest in. The dolls are odd, funny, and charming, and the people are some of the most realistically developed I've seen in a manga. No cardboard cut-outs here.
