reboot is an understatement.

ep 1 was a recap of the major points of the entire 8 volume run of the first Rozen Maiden manga series, complete with the rabbit out of the ass end.

Ep 2 is where the season will really start, with Jun who didn't wind. I wasn't expecting them to rush right into the new stuff, to be honest. I am hugely impressed with what they are doing, and I just hope DEEN has learned from past adaptations and their habit of rushing through the adaptation in the beginning, and then dragging out the last part because they didn't properly plan out how they were going to pace the series.

Also the manga also did a soft reboot when they changed publishers.

It's for the newbies to catch up. So have an ep 1 intro ep.

Well, I'm glad. It's the reason why I might follow this in the end, even if I end up as disappointed as with Traumend.

I guess it's just endearing to see them back again; except Hina-Ichigo and Canaria: those are still awful.

I'm really, really liking this. I think he grew rather coherently for a hiki who was a doll lover in another universe, as if they wanted the series to catch up with us old followers (say, like in Eva Rebuild?). Actually, yesterday, coincidentally, I decided myself to start putting together a DD doll; it's gonna take a while (and cost me tons) so this just comes right on time as the perfect insane motivation. I hope this new series keeps on the same mood, for I will.

It only shows how little he really knew about Jun. And since Jun is basically a closed box to everybody that doesn't live with him, it's hard to really say what the teacher attempted to do was wrong.

He was quite happy to see a new side of Jun, to see that the shy boy with very few friends 'opening up' with one of his hobbies, and decided to give him a bit of a push out in the open so he could make friends and even perhaps join a club of people with similar hobbies so he would live a truly enjoyable middle school life.

It doesn't even matter whether it was Jun or not, as soon as he figured out it's a guy who designed it he should've known it won't end well.

Seeing all the dolls and everyone come back is really making me happy. I think the most interesting thing for me about it so far is seeing adult Jun. I'd say it's going fairly well but one thing that annoys me like someone already mentioned is the actress girl. Since this anime has gone full depressing reality type world I view all the girls outside of the dolls as 3DPDs, not to mention Shinku and Jun had great chemistry in the original in my opinion. So I'm going to be mad if this girl comes in and ruins it. Also it's kind of got a NHK vibe going to it with depressed adult Jun and all that.

Exactly. In any other series (even moody seinen) she'd be another kind-hearted 2D girl we could like; but in here, with the RM serving as contrasting factor, she appears as the Ford-vindicating route that threatens the die hard doll-lover path.

However, since she's ostensibly implicated in the Alice game too, it's way too soon to judge her (maybe she's there to appeal female but equally lonely doll-loving audiences?); next episode might be pivotal in this regard. To see how a Jun nearer our age and condition reacts to all this is quite the hook, indeed.

You don't really know that, how handsome/pretty any given character is in the 2D-verse can only be ascernaited through opinions of those around him/her.

That's true. In general, young anime characters are fit/slim for 3D standards and we have to rely on their own judgement. However, they sometimes are clearly made to somehow look like shit for narrative purposes, which include a loner or self-abandoned lifestyle (Tatsuhiro Satou, Kuroki Tomoko, the original Genshiken...). In that sense, I think Jun is portrayed rather nicely; he also have conventionally nice and manly facial features unlike, say, his boss.

So that was Megu, after all. Oh well.

At Traumend, she was likeable but a bit corny; this one take on her is much more cynical and deliciously off her chump; such a waste, really: I'd keep her around rather than the lame actress anytime.

Because you're listening to your dick, dickhead. But is not entirely your fault: disregarded by your own doll (which is most unfair, indeed), you're still weak thus been manipulated by everyone (including Kirakishou) and making poor decisions as a consequence.

Kanaria is the worst.

I wanted to punch Jun in the face when he slammed the door on Shinku.

I didn't realize people disliked her. I don't have anything against her, but she's pretty underwhelming when compared to the dolls.

Shinku is an angel.

At long last, the main character is introduced -- next episode.

and with so few episodes left for the story, I get the feeling it's going to be rushed as shit for the last bit.

I can only pray to god and hope for heaven's sake that they aren't going to attempt to crunch in 17 chapters worth of material into 5 episodes after going at a horribly leisurely pace riddled with filler averaging at 1 ep per chapter. DEEN QUALITY pacing at it's finest.

So the Jun who winded and Shinku just wanted adult Jun to make a new body for her to be awaken in, then abandon him as soon as possible to go back into the N-field and on with their stuff? well that's pretty cruel and no lame actress' ass can make up for it.

She taught Jun some manners, the proper etiquette for treating guests, and became the motivation he needed to take a step forward in life. Shinku did nothing short of an absolute miracle for that lazy bastard, and that's pleny of repayment for his temporary help.

They couldn't have made the reveal of the last episode any more obvious. Hinaichigo's body is a good two feet smaller than everyone else's.

Kirakishou was actually the only non disappointing character on sight at some moment. I liked her not being a stereotypical wicked villain but, rather, a sort of victim as well who's trying to deal with her situation the best way she can (say, somewhat like Suigintou); also, in honor to the truth, she's quite pretty (she put those boyish Souseiseki parts to good use).

This new series even made me like Hina Ichigo (and neutralize my bad feelings towards Kanaria). Great job on that. Now it's just one more episode to come.

However, seems like a rather sad ending for my taste. A normal adult life without charming dolls, I mean. And it looks like the Jun who winded intends to end his own hikikomori days soon too, somewhat catching up with his depressing older self. What will become of the dolls, by then? they'll just continue the Alice game with a different medium, I guess; for Jun, they will be a most treasured memory, but no more than that; and at least I don't think I could endure living this depressing adult life on memories alone. But that's just my shitty projection alright.

I long to see what becomes of Kirakishou in the end. So I might get into the manga after this ends.

Not to mention no Suigintou, no Kaworu, and no sense whatsoever unless you read the manga.

I don't know about the possibility of a sequel, but I'd recommend reading the manga if you liked the anime. The end parts (i.e. everything starting from the play) are quite rushed in the anime, and while it remains enjoyable the manga is a lot better.

Rushed is an understatement. There is so much that was simply cut, it is highly recommended you read the manga.

Perfect cut.

Usually cuts are great if you simply don't notice them and the episode progresses smoothly but that one was something special. It was unnatural and you'd normally 'resolve' the scene differently (there are a number of 'standard' scenarios there, the most common would be a still image of Saito for a second or two or simply showing Jun again) but cutting early actually served to further accentuate the last line. Great job.


>it is highly recommended you read the manga.

Business as usual then. Watching an adaptation means settling for less in at least 9/10 cases.


>do you think there'll be another season

I wouldn't count on it, the sales were pretty poor.
