      Thank you so much for that. >u<

    I wonder if its a sequel or reboot of Rozen Maiden. I loved the manga and the old animes.
    I would love to play the VN. I just hope they release it for PC, given that I think it will never get localized, at least it will be more likely that someone make a fan translation or something.

  • AkuLord3

    Wow a VN and a new anime (sequel or reboot who knows) Fuckin Sweet

    • M’iau M’iaut

      It will be interesting since they pretty well rebooted the original story line with the last anime.

      • puchinri

        Was the last anime following the manga that happened after the first? I never bothered to watch either anime (and I haven’t started the new/recent but now kinda old manga yet).

        • M’iau M’iaut

          The first two seasons generally follow the original manga with some exceptions. There was a third which the states never got where the MC is a little older and not so much a shut in.

          • puchinri

            Ah, so it follows the manga that came after. That’s pretty cool~.

    • I believe I read on Crunchyroll that it’s going to be a sequel, and I am very much looking forward to it =)

  • Visa Vang

    Cake~y, cake~y, cake~y♥

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Hello Hina.

  • Maia Kasoya

    I can’t believe I only found out about the new anime a week or so ago, when they announced it back in November… Oh well, better late than never. I’m happy that Kirakishou’s actually gonna be in the anime instead of a few seconds-long cameo.
    And a Rozen;Maiden VN by 5pb?

    W-w-w-w-w-w-w-w-WHAAAAAATTT!?!?!?!?!? OMG YES!!!
    All the anime I watch have been getting new seasons lately! Wow this is awesome! This summer’s gonna be great-desu! God, I love this series!

  • CirnoLakes

    New anime? Wow.

    Though that means my waifus’ soul is still stolen in Alice game.;_;

    .. or maybe this is a reboot.

  • Namuro

    SWEET! More Rozen goodness for me!! Been forever since I last watched the anime. One of my favorite series ever.

  • Lazulis

    More Rozen Maiden, YES! Hopefully Ali Project or Yuki Kajiura do the music~

  • Phlo

    Considering DEEN hasn’t made anything more than passable in years, the anime isn’t exactly good news for the franchise.

  • Göran Isacson

    Huh. So I only watched the first anime… yeah, I think it was the first one. Any news on whether this is a reboot, sequel, prequel, or if I can just jump right in and watch it without watching the second series?

  • Alexandra Cordes

    Oh man, I am curious to see how these turn out. I loved the anime and manga.
