How much of /a/ has actually watched Rozen Maiden? And what is the general opinion?
>>
Could have been so, so much better.
>>
I watched it and enjoyed it a reasonable amount.
>>
100% of the non-newfags. Its pretty good. Could be better, but still worth the watch.
>>
no one on /a/ watches anime
>>
shitsux
>>
It's worth the watch, altough after 4 episodes it felt like Shinku = Haruhi, Hinaichigo = Mikuru and Jun = Kyon.
>>
would be so much better if the guy wasn't so fail
>>
I dropped it two episodes in. Couldn't hold up my interest.
>>
1st season is the only one worth watching.

If that were true, you wouldn't lost the main character status to the show's villain, Shinku.

It was pretty good.

Needs more Suigintou OVAs

Also, where is my actual manga ending Peach-pit?

If that were true, you wouldn't lose the main character status to the show's villain (of all people), Shinku.

YOU don't watch anime. Speak for yourself.

Rozen maiden is fine. It got annoying after a while, especially season 2.
>>
Season 1 is an above-average single-season adaptation of an ongoing manga.

Season 2 has much, much too much otaku fetish bullshit and abitrary ending.

The Overture OVA is pretty awesome.

rozen maiden was pretty good. traumand wasnt nearly as good.
>>
Watch ALL of it so you can realize how much Peach Pit hates us all.

Then watch Shugo Chara and realize how awesome Peach Pit is.

Then PARADOX.

But seriously, I think season 1 > season 2, and the OVA isn't bad. Watch 'em all for the sake of completion.
>>
I watched it up until a couple episodes after Suiseiseki (sp?) (desu) appeared. (8-10?) I stopped because I think something else caught my attention and I wasn't that invested into the series. It was "okay" as far as I recall up to that point.
>>
>>10086162
they probably have different writers for their separate series...
>>
Series never interested me, but the OP's are fucking awesome! Fuck yeah, Ali Project!

Rozen Maiden is required /a/ viewing.

I'm one of the few people who liked Season 2 better. Had more Boku and Kashira.
>>
>>10086195
ALL THEIR SONGS SOUND THE SAME.
But they actually fit Rozen Maiden. it pisses me off when they do other anime songs though.

Yes, s1, Traumend, Ouverture and Duell Waltzer (sp?)

s1 very good, Traumend ran out of steam badly so the Alice Game ended up being a deus ex machina load of jizz, Ouverture shows what a bitch Shinku really is and DW is just a bit of fun. Basically, if Peach-Pit weren't such fuck-ups and concentrated on the job in hand they'd have done a truly outstanding 24-episode anime that did the whole story start to finish.

Alice pic related.
>>
The level of cultural anachronism in Rozen Maiden really annoys me. The dolls are German, right? Then why do they have Japanese names, speak Japanese, and have Japanese mannerisms like "desu" and "boku"?
>>
>>10086345
Except in the true end Junk would stay dead
>>
>>10086228

Eh, I wouldn't say so. For example, the opening for the first series and Traumed are both very "chaotic", while the one for Overture is more calm.
>>
Is the manga already finished?
>>
>>10086371
they have german names as well
>>
>>10086416
That they never use, not even once.
>>
>>10086388
If by finished you mean lolLaplace ending like in Ouverture then from what i've gathered from the people who've read it, yes.
>>
>>10086388

if you mean finished as in canceled halfway through then yes.
>>
>>10086388

Manga was ended rather prematurely due to a massive falling out between Peach Pit and the editorial staff of Comic Birz.
>>
in other words: Rushed ending?

There will never be a third season because I already kicked Junk's ass so much she doesn't have anything left.
>>
>>10086560
It's strange how Rozen keeps reviving her, does he have a favourite amongst the dolls?

It would be stupid if they tried to pronounce them in Japanese. If they called Shinku "Reiner Rubin" the whole time, you would hate it.
>>
>>10085835
S1 was pretty good.
S2 sucked.
OVA was pretty good.
S3 FUKKEN WHERE? FUCK YOU PEACH PIT, FUCK. YOU.
>>
>>10086622
Why did you cry and apologize to her then?
>>
Rozen Maiden would be a great series if it had Ouverture's characterisation, coloring and fights, Season 1's writing, feel and animation, and Season 2's anyone-can-die storyline.

Oh, and if they removed all the self-contradictions and deus ex machinae.

Of all the dolls junk's name isn't completely german. It would be "Quecksilber Lampe", but no they had to take mercury. Damn junk.
>>
>>10087498
That's because she's junk
>>
I have watched all of it. I really enjoyed the series, and I would like a new season to come out, even a Rozen Maiden Fumoffu would be nice.

though one day i took some sleeping medication, and I was a little drugged up from it, and i watched the part where hinaichgo died, and even though I didn't like her that much I cried my eyes out that scene.
>>
>>10087498
Don't mind the Junk for a moment. They use the term Rozen Maiden as if "Maiden" was a plural of a German word "Maide", dammit!

Was put off by the 'lolicon harem' genre most anime sites give it, but I watched it and it's one of my favorites. Wish they had worked Jun's leet dollmaek skills out though.

It actually is. German word Maid, plural Maiden.

This is the only thing I liked about Rozen Maiden. Too bad it's doujin.
>>
>>10085862
This, but I quite enjoyed it anyway. Probably because of my being incredibly pathetic.
>>
fucking /r/ manga scanlations
>>
I liked it, but you know, it's pretty shitty on account of the fact that is was unfinished and so much is left out in the open.
>>
>>10089243
