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
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.
You watch it for me, and me only.
Fuck you Stinku!
No you watch it for janku.
I'm actually downloading it now so I can begin watching it.
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
Fuck off teabitch!
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.
so this is moe?
sage for viral marketing
No, it's comedic exploitation of the vertically-challanged.
Could have had THIRD FUCKING SEASON
MMmm. Delicious Junk.
i watch it for the guns!
Manga was cancelled, so there will never be a third season
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.
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.
they probably have different writers for their separate series...
Series never interested me, but the OP's are fucking awesome! Fuck yeah, Ali Project!
Thanks for the summary of another post.
anybody have the artists site? I seem to have misplaced it
One of my top favs
Rozen Maiden is required /a/ viewing.
I'm one of the few people who liked Season 2 better. Had more Boku and Kashira.
ALL THEIR SONGS SOUND THE SAME.
But they actually fit Rozen Maiden. it pisses me off when they do other anime songs though.
dont forget about me.
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"?
Except in the true end Junk would stay dead
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?
they have german names as well
That they never use, not even once.
If by finished you mean lolLaplace ending like in Ouverture then from what i've gathered from the people who've read it, yes.
if you mean finished as in canceled halfway through then yes.
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.
It's strange how Rozen keeps reviving her, does he have a favourite amongst the dolls?
i watched the first few episodes and got bored.
It's just pity. Poor Junk.
Also Father knows how much I enjoy breaking Junk.
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.
S1 was pretty good.
OVA was pretty good.
S3 FUKKEN WHERE? FUCK YOU PEACH PIT, FUCK. YOU.
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.
Well you know, it's like how you start to cry sometimes after sex or masturbating. I get emotional.
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.
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.
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.
...fuck, you're right.
Rozen Maiden 3 would be fucking awesome. i have no idea why Peach Pit don't realize that?
Batch torrent had no seeds.
This is the only thing I liked about Rozen Maiden. Too bad it's doujin.
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.
