Hmm, same as Flo. I respect your opinions, but I'm a bit dissatisfied about the shallow assessments of Shinku's arrogance. In addition to what I said above, I think I should give an example to illustrate my point. Consider the air of how Shinku drinks tea: how she pulls out her own tea cup and base, how her every movement seems to be quite proper and composed, how even her taste in tea is very discerning (how she gathers so much information from a mere sip) thus refined. Is she trying to be arrogant in this example? I'd say, no. I feel the way Shinku drinks tea captures the very essence of Shinku, and we can glean a lot of qualities of her personality from that act.

Incidentally, when I was first watching Rozen Maiden, in the very first episode, seeing how Shinku behaved for the first few minutes when she first appeared, I also thought she was haughty and holier-than-thou. But soon later in the episode, when I observed how Shinku drinks tea, that impression was promptly shattered. It is that precise scene, that precise act, that captured my mind and heart, that pushed me down the road of becoming and being a Shinku fanatic.

Hmm.. then we really agree to disagree then . How you explain Shinku's trait that fascinate and draw her to you is exctly why she getting farther and farther away for me... I guess I'm never good at my words

@ the bold sentence. Its because she didnt try to be arrogant but the arrogant attitude surface itself that pissed me off.. I think you can say that its from my real life experience so yea .. too bad for her >.>

You showed Rozen Maiden to non-otaku in a pub ? You deserve some reputation for your courage...

さて、感謝祭から今頃帰ってきましたよ。
別に報告なんて既に腐るほどされてるんだろうけど書きたいから書く。

1.ローゼンメイデン特別編制作決定。ただし、詳細については一切不明。
  地上波で放送なのかOVAなのかすら不明。ただ決定したという報告だけ。
2.SRDX金糸雀が6月に発売。水銀燈、真紅、蒼星石の発売も決定した。
  雛苺は皆様の応援しだいということらしい。
3.福岡で4月の終わりごろに開催される祭りでローゼンメイデンが公式イメージキャラクターに 採用された。
  麻生大臣も来るらしい。

他にもいろいろあるけどまあいいや。
とにかくすごく楽しかった。
翠星石から蒼星石への手紙の朗読と、蒼星石から翠星石への手紙の朗読が特によかった

I came back from the Appreciation event guys.
Since there's probably a ton of reports out there, I will just write what I want to say.

1. "Rozen Maiden Special Edition" is a announced. Specifics are unknown.
Whether its even on TV or an OVA is still unknown. Only thing that's certain is that its decided.

2. SRDX Kanaria is scheduled to be sold in June. Suigintou, Shinku, and Souseiseki is also decided.
Hina Ichigo would depend on the fan's support.

3. A festival in Fukuoka that's planned to be held in April, plans to use Rozen Maiden as their offical character.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Taro Aso is also planning to attend.

(It is well known on 2ch and on the Japanese wikipedia article, that Minister of Foreign Affairs Taro Aso is a fan of the Rozen Maiden series and many other manga. Since he's also one of the canidates for the next prime minister, there's a chance that a Rozen Maiden fan is the next prime minster of Japan.)



My personal feeling is 80% probability that its an OVA series, and 20% probabilty that its a 3rd season. They also mentioned to look at the website later for further information.

Yargh it was non otaku in London (it was an old mans pub too).... It started coz a friend asked to see what my psp was like and didn't have any games on me only RMS2 so he had a look and suddenly we were surrounded. Trying to explain whats going on after 4 pints to people who think anime = cartoons that is just Sponge Bob Square Pants is not the most easy thing I have done...

That's an extremely difficult task. I made a paper for English explaining that anime wasn't like cartoons in that it had depth and meaning ... kinda difficult to do it in a pub ...

Anyway, I like the first four episodes. Yes, I'm that fast. Hinaichigo rocks ... and ... I hope Tomoe ends up with Jun ... though I can't say much because I haven't seen the rest of it yet.

Nice, any new RM anime is cool with me

Interesting thinking about the PM of Japan as a RM fan. Maybe he'll make watching RM mandatory for everybody.


Grey_moon, you showed anime in a pub to old people? wow. You're in London right? I wonder how some of the pub people thought about Shinku with her being the English tea-drinking aristocrat that she is.

Agreed, I think the OVA will explain more about Kirakishou and the rabbit.

Let me add that I like both OP and ED of Rozen Maiden, especially the ED. They rock.

Both OPs and EDs are good.


I think they need ALI PROJECT for the third opening as well. It's following its traditions right?

Yep although some people seem to dislike Ali Project, I think their songs fit quite well to the Rozen OPs.

I absolutely LOVED the animation style they used for the Traumend OP, hopefully the third season OP animation can match or top it with a creative style like that.

The 2nd ED was nice as well, especially the peaceful feeling song.

Although definitely not among the best, Rozen Maiden lies in the range of great for me. It's very entertaining, not to mention, it's very didactic.

Well calling anything the best is purely subjective and RM isn't perfect, but being entertaining is exactly the reason why I like it so much.

I loved the lighthearted comedy parts more then any of the action-centered episodes. There was just something special to it, sure there's plenty of comedy series out there but sometimes it feels forced in a way. Here in RM, well this guy has all these magical dolls living in his house what else do you expect to happen but laughs galore^^
