However, some time in the middle of this past summer I got around to reading an English translation of the first chapters of the new Rozen Maiden series published in March of this year. The newer series, thankfully, does in fact serve as a continuation of this series rather than a hard reboot. (I didn't spoil much for you just now because the fact is revealed quite early, and if you're reading this now, you probably already knew anyway.) While the new chapters have not magically appended themselves to this slim volume, they have dramatically soothed the pain of having felt ripped off by this bizarre "ending" in the first place. That is important because it redeems this volume from earning another one-star rating; on its own it would have seemed a dead end and a waste of time. As it stands now, however, Rozen Maiden volume 8 is to be counted in this continuing narrative as any other volume that preceded it. Fans who would have already been prepared to purchase a volume 9 before learning of the brevity and "finality" of volume 8 have no real reason to stop short of this one just because of its size. The Alice Game is still on, so take this one for the team.
Thankfully, Peach-Pit is currently publishing new Rozen Maiden stories in a different magazine in Japan than the one responsible for this volume being cut short, so once those eventually get licensed and translated, we'll get to see a continuation of the story.
