Remember those nightmares you had as a child, where your toys came to life? That's the reality that Jun Sakurada suddenly finds himself living in when Shinku arrives in a box. She's the first of several magical Rozen Maidens to invade the secluded life he has made for himself since refusing to attend school anymore and living the life of a hermit. Worse, he finds himself magically bound to Shinku, his life force powering hers, and she's not too crazy about the way he's been living his life. Unfortunately, fixing everything that's wrong with Jun is going to have to take a back seat to making sure that Shinku survives the Alice Game, a competition that pits Rozen Maiden against Rozen Maiden for the prize of becoming a real girl, while the losers' life essence is drained and they become lifeless toys again. Now, in order to win this deadly game, Jun and Shinku will have to find a way to work together. But to do that they'll have to start trusting each other first! Get ready for a whole new kind of 'guys and dolls' as 'action figure' takes on a new meaning in Rozen Maider - The Complete Collection! Includes two new episodes, never before released.

I ordered this supposedly for a DVD collection. I watched Rozen Maiden via online streaming, so I pretty much know what to expect with the story line. It has a genius plot which includes 8th grader Jun Sakurada who pretty much secluded himself from the world thus refusing to go to school. He became addicted to online shopping as well as promos. He'd buy a certain item and he decides if he should give it back or keep it. He came across a "survey", which was actually Shinku's little scheme to get a host. The day after he answered the survey, a fancy box came to his doorstep and forever changed his life.

Anyway, I am impressed with the shipping. When I purchased this item, it was said that it will SHIP on the 14th of MAY and should arrive around the 24th. Well, guess what? Amazon moved it earlier and shipped the next day I purchased it and the expected delivery date became what used to be the ship date. To add all that it came 3 days early. Instead of getting this item on the 14th, I got it on the 11th (today). I'm really satisfied as far as the shipping goes as well as the packaging.

THIS IS THE COMPLETE SERIES. That means it includes Seasons 1 and 2, as well as the Overtures.

The Rozen Maidens are a series of living dolls engaged in a contest, The Alice Game. The winner gets to become Alice, a girl without blemish and without equal. Perfect. They also get to see father. The losers are forced to give up their ability to commune with a medium at best and are turned into junk at worst. A young boy with a serious social phobia is always on his computer, collecting oddities and checking out supposedly cursed or magical items. He sends them back before having to pay, getting to experience the gimmick without the cost. When he receives a letter asking "Will you wind it," he checks yes and finds himself suddenly thrust into the job of a medium, with a connection to a living doll.

On the surface, this anime sounds like one that would involve a lot of battles and would mainly delve into combat. The dolls do fight, mainly with one of their number specifically, but seldom do the fights really push The Alice Game. Mainly you deal with the boy, his growing connection to a group of Rozen Maidens and his fear of the world and the concern his sister has for him.

At first, our main character and his Rozen Maiden have issues with one another, but they grow closer with the passage of time. Other Maidens are introduced through a series of episodes, and some bring specialized tools or gifts that allow us to delve more deeply into the main boy's psyche. This helps explain what transpired and it also does something different with a storyline in an anime and I enjoyed that.

This is not to say the show is all seriousness with fighting on the side. Many of the episodes are dedicated to humor. Even in the serious ones, pieces are reserved for humor.

This Anime is amazing...in my top 3. I can't say more...all 2 Seasons and the Ouverture.
Has the dubbed and the subbed versions, not a fan of the dubbed but for those who don't feel like reading, this is very convenient. =]

Rozen Maiden is a delightful anime about a boy with an addiction to ordering things online, and then returning them before the grace period ends. Then one day, an unusual delivery appears. It is a doll. And it is alive.

The colors are rich, the characters amusing, the imagery quaint, and the music stirring.

I originally watched Rozen Maiden online, and was thrilled with this DVD collection. One may watch in English or Japanese, and there are also subtitles for both languages. The English voice-overs have been left as they can be found online. This set includes the entire first season, second season, and overture.

As I was watching the DVD my younger brothers meandered in, and after a few days I could not watch an episode without them huffing at me for starting it without them. Yes. Teenage boys.

The tale does end "unresolved", but not in a way that leaves the watcher feeling unsatisfied.

On the whole, this collection of Rozen Maiden merits five stars from me AND my teenage brothers.

One thing that gets top ratings from me is character development. This series certainly has that. It's a story of love, hate, power, family and kindness. It has its share of comedy also. I'd recommend this to anyone who loves a good story.

This DVD set includes "Rozen Maiden" (12 Episodes), "Rozen Maiden: Traumend" (12 Episodes) and Rozen Maiden: Overture" (2 Episodes).
It does not include "Rozen Maiden: Zuruckspulen".

In some episodes, there is something wrong with the picture at the right side. The voices are pitched a little bit to high for my ears. This production comes in standard 4:3, not wide.

The discs are Region 1 only, although the cover does not indicate it. (Please keep in mind: Region Codes do not have any other value other than being a nuisance to the customer.)

It is rated TV-14. In my personal opinion it wouldn't be harmful for a slighly younger audience. However, I prefer Animes, where there are multiple levels of storytelling. Here we have the short stories, each episode tells, the long story-arch around the Alice Game and the interaction between the characters, leading to the question: why am I born and some ethical discussions. Well, you may have to look for it and I would have prefered more on that level instead of fighing. As an adult you may see a different story than your teenager, but that actually makes it familiy compatible.
However, don't expect too much from it. It is worth watching it. Not a Hayao Miyazaki masterpiece but also a lot more than the average bulk Anime. Did I enjoy it? Yes! Would I buy it again? yes!
