    The brutal truth. this anime should be either be redone or aborted
    I'm not going to cow tow and sugar coat this review unlike the vast majority of those who threw praises upon this show.
    whether you see this series as a continuation of the old Rozen Maiden anime or a complete reboot all together, is one of the most ill executed animes I've seen in the long history of Anime!
    I was a fan of the original anime since I first saw it years ago. and it remains one of ...

    Evolve or die, move or be static
    I must that that even though the original Rozen Maiden was not done to the look of the manga the problem with the manga was that it couldn't translate properly from manga to anime even with the brilliant CGI effects in the series. And may I say the CGI in Zuruckspulen was indeed brilliant I wanted that CGI in the original (and they could have done it). But the unfortunately the character drawings ...

    didn't have to be this way
    When I think about the past when I think about the present I'm worried bout the future of Rozen Maiden as an entity. And the funny thing is I don't think people would have been so up in arms about Zuruckspulen (even though its not a great series) if they have just concluded the old one I think there wouldn't this much divide and disgust. But they pushed the old guys aside and all success they ...

    I'll never understand! and I'll NEVER approve!
    I was staying out of this even though I really did not like this latest adaptation of RM. well I have to weigh in on this one now. Cause there's one piece of logic missing from this argument that some are trying suppress. And I have to say I'm sorely disappointed
    Fact is the animations were horrible and should never have been taken back to manga formula. The only thing that was a plus about the ...

    The history of success and failure
    I've been a great fan of Rozen Maiden since its anime debut in 2007. It was truly an anime that reached out and touched so many around the world. But this release of the Zuruckspulen series has sparked disaster for Rozen Maiden and all the success it bore upon its originals release.
    I've heard so many applaud Zuruckspulen for sticking to the manga in story and animations and slap the old for its ...

    The Rozen Maiden Down
    Like I said in one of my other reviews when this series Zuruckspulen came out my heart sank. The original Rozen Maiden anime reached out to so many of us and achieved so much and when above and beyond in story and animations.
    I've been hearing so many arguments and read so many reviews and I've seen some good points while others just talk in circles (Those who blindly support Zuruckspulen). ...

    A glimpse of Alice then a glimpse of despair
    as the title implies the Rozen Maiden franchise has been a glimpse of Alice then a glimpse of despair. The original Rozen Maiden series really was a Glimpse of Alice. it was a stunning update in story and animations from the manga. But this release of Zurukspulen has been complete glimpse of despair!
    This anime is true to the manga... this anime is true to the manga...
    dear God I keep hearing ...

    I watch with wounded eyes
    When the Original Rozen Maiden first appeared back in 2007 I thought there was no way I would be all about an anime with creepy porcelain dolls. Animes of war and last minute heroes like Code Geass, Full Metal Alchemist and Black Lagoon were always my speed. But an anime about living toys caught my intrigue so I did take a look. Was real glad I got to episode 3 of the original and saw Suigintou. ...

    The point lost, that needs adressing
    I think a few of the previous reviewers made a huge point on this one. Clearly Zurukspulan was not from what I found a good anime. and the previous animes were a grand update from the manga.
    Thirteenthdragon and AdlerHerz made them incredibly obvious

    This what Thirteenth Dragon said
    "I will never understand this obsession with "back to manga formula" visually when it has done more more harm ...

    betrayal at the highest level
    Rozen Maiden was for years a beloved franchise. But it was a franchise doomed to fall apart. The one who conceived RM, Peach Pit had a brilliant idea, the idea of living toys was a concept almost completely unheard of and something that hadn't been done in the US on a scale like this for decades.
    But Peach had difficulty drawing and writing the story. Understandable... She was able to land some ...
