Many thanks to Animelito and Chachamaru for doing this wonderful series (especially for giving me a reason for watching each episode twice).

How would they have a "DBZ Powerup" if they don't even look like DBZ characters? And if you're generalizing all powerups as such... well there isn't any real logic to that...

And Gin won't end up like Bara, because she's an official Rozen doll made by Rozen.

And why shouldn't I use DB as a generalisation for crazy overwhelming powerups? Don't need spiky hair and tails to powerup db style...

Because you're making it sound like ALL powerups are "DBZ Style". Heck, I've even heard of Bleach powerups are DBZ style. They're POWERUPS, but nowhere near DBZish.

Now if you're saying ALL powerups are DBZish, I can argue that DBZ most likely didn't pioneer the idea, and if they did, it don't mean that all powerups should be classified as "DBZish", because powerups are more general... they don't ONLY belong in DBZ, as it more has to do with reiatsu/spirit energy/ki/whatever you call it than the show itself, and DBZ isn't the only show that has a type of spiritual energy.[/rant]

On topic:

Gin still rules

Nope I am not trying to make all powers ups dbz style, especially when i reply with "generalisation for crazy overwhelming power-ups". I was attempting to to say that I liked the way RM dealt with the absorption of each others Rosa Mysticas, they didn't make any doll overwhelming and reliant on having the largest number of Rosa Mysticas.
Spoiler:

For me DB style power-ups are when something happens and the person who has powered up can pwn everything until their opponent/s either gains the same powerup or some other plot device. I think this is what other people refer to when they compare Bleach powerups to DBZ. It is in my mind is to do how they handle the powerup not the powerup itself. *edit* forgot the "and repeat cycle to really extend the series" */edit*

*On topic*
Yeah Gin does rule, for me especially the way they humanised her actions with her relationship with Megu.

I agree 100% and, in fact, will add on to this.

...but that situation is too general to compare it to DBZ. It makes no logical sense, IMO.

And who can't love Megu? In my eyes, she defines moť(or maybe it's just my fetish? Oh well ). And Gin+Megu=the perfect human/doll yuri couple

DBZ is powerup & pwn, and then opponent powerup & pwn, repeat cycle (with first an island blowing up, a continent, a planet, a solar system, etc etc). I think DBZ for a generalisation of crazy powerups is a good one and I can't think of a series that has sold so much based on that model.

I like Megu and Gin, because to me it seems that Megu is the human equivalent of Gin, believing that she is junk, but each has a way out with Gin becoming Alice and Megu eating some food and believing she will live (maybe... since we don't know whats wrong with her, but self belief can be the best types of medicine).

Why the need to compare it to another show anyway? It's like comparing any animť that has monsters in it to Pokťmon(sadly, ppl DO do that...), or animť that has dolls to Rozen Maiden. For instance, someone says "This is too much like Rozen Maiden! Why do they have to copy them and go use dolls as the main characters like that?"

At least this is what it's sounding like to me...

Rozen Maiden has really won me over. I watched the first season at random, and thought it was an entertaining series with a great conclusion. Traumend started out kind of slow, but, once again, the final few episodes make this series great. I hope that a third season is likely. Rozen Maiden has been bumped into my group of elite favorites.

I guess, I won the prediction back at ep10.

As you probably know, I'm listed as one of the "main translators" as one of the fansubs of RMT. To tell you the truth, my laptop died the RIGHT BEFORE I got the latest raw. It is said, that its going to take 3 weeks for repairs (I have a Japanese OS system and so, I need to send it back to Japan.). Therefore, I would like to say that if anyone was dissatisfied with one of the subs (I assume, naming which sub I'm associated would be considered "advertisement"), I humbly apoligize for my degradation of the most recent episode due to translation diffculties. This is in NO WAY, an advertisment attempt of a particular fansub, but only, an apology to the RMT fan community that I have done no justice for them. Once again, please do not interpret this as a decision based upon my affiliation with a particular fansub, but only, something that's based upon my own decision as a similar RM fan. I think, most people would understand which fansub I am/was associated with, but once again, I don't think I'm in the liberty to mention which one. Depending on the types of responces I get/see, I will see to it what kind of self-deserving punishment I should deal to myself.

It is also dissapointing that my involvement with this forum would rapidly diminish along with the end of the series, and hopefully, I could post some new news of the "Rozen Maiden Fan Appreciation Event" in Febuary 18th.

I will view this forum once so often, so please, wait for my formal return 3 weeks later. And once again, I'm very sorry for the types of damage I have caused to the very essence of the RMT series.

Err ok, the ending was kind of odd. It's not a good or bad ending, but it just leaves me in awe like, "What the hell was that?!".

Oh well, atleast there's going to probably be another season now. I had enough of this cycle of doom and gloom about the Alice Game and the I hope the next season focuses more on something else.
