Pure Asian Entertainment: Film, TV, Anime & Manga


The second season of Rozen Maiden, subtitled träumend (トロイメント, toroimento?) has a slightly darker tone. Träumend is German for "dreaming." The episodes are more plot-driven and deal with topics such as "Father" — the Rozen Maiden's creator — and the inevitable conclusion to the "Alice Game." Jun does not yet attend school (he has much work to make up before he can go back), but studies at home and at the local library. He is much more willing and eager to go outside the house, and seems to have even grown fond of the ever-present dolls. Shinku has also been changed, thanks to the events of the previous season, but she is generally as aristocratic as ever, lecturing and punishing Jun at every opportunity. Several new non-doll characters are introduced, including a riddle-spouting, tuxedo-attired anthropomorphic rabbit and two mysterious men who operate a doll shop. The final group of dolls also appear this season: Kanaria, the second doll, Barasuishou, who introduces herself as the seventh doll, and Kirakishou, the true seventh doll (though not by name).

Rozen Maiden: Träumend consists of twelve episodes that began airing on October 20, 2005 and ended on January 26, 2006. Only the first volume of DVDs—including the first four episodes—is currently available in North America, after Geneon canceled its North American releases in September 2007[9]. On July 3, 2008, Geneon Entertainment and Funimation Entertainment announced an agreement to distribute select titles in North America. While Geneon Entertainment will still retain the license, Funimation Entertainment will assume exclusive rights to the manufacturing, marketing, sales and distribution of select titles. Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden Traumend were two of several titles involved in the deal[10], thus raising hopes that Träumend would be released in its entirety. Volume 2 is now officially set for release in North America on October 28, 2008.[11]

I don’t know about you, but I find it pretty difficult to relax with the glassy eyes of a creepy doll seemingly following me around the room.  Well take that inherent creepiness and couple it to what could only be described as an Asian-gothic back story and you’ve got yourself Rozen Maiden: Traumend; another of a long list of titles that would be forever lost to the sands of time when the proverbial Geneon ship sank a few years back.  Thanks to Funimation, Rozen is back in …
