The Collector’s Edition of Rozen maiden will be in omnibus format, with each book having over 400 pages. There will be seven volumes in total of the Collector’s Edition. The entire collection will have the seven volumes of the revised original series, as well all ten volumes of the sequel series.

People who have been on the Internet for a long time now probably know of Rozen Maiden, even if they never read the manga or watched the anime. This is due to the prevalence of Suiseiseki and her “desu” manner of speech on old Internet forums. As for Rozen Maiden itself, the anime and manga was very popular back during the early 2000s with its visual aesthetics and character design. Even after it faded in relevancy, it appeared in recent years during a SINoALICE event, for example.

In terms of the plot, Rozen Maiden follows the story of Jun Sakurada, who is a shut-in middle schooler due to his interest in designing dresses. Through happenstance, he meets Shinku, a living bisque doll who’s a Rozen Maiden, and she explains to him the Alice game. It’s a battle royale among all the Rozen Maidens to steal each other’s core—their Rosa Mystica—so they can become “Alice” and thus earn the right to meet Rozen, their father.

Rozen Maiden Collector’s Edition Volume 1 will come out in English in January 2025. It’ll cost $25.99. As mentioned earlier, you can also get it as a digital ebook.
