Rozen Maiden

“The dolls were an attitude. If nothing else they were a great attitude.”
J. Thunders
To be honest I really didn’t like Rozen Maiden until some action started. I was bored until I finally learned why the doll was even there. Well anyway the main character to our story, Shinku, is a Rozen Maiden and a doll with an attitude.
Yep, this is totally a doll.
The plot was definitely slow taking as long as forty chapters to introduce the seven Rozen Maidens. A Rozen Maiden is a doll made by Father Rozen, who is never seen, they participate in what is known as The Alice Game. In which are these seven dolls that try to kill each other to become the perfect girl. They don’t have energy to do this so they make a contract with a human for help. Jun Sakurada is a traumatized boy who becomes... traumatized when girls say he was good at designing clothes but the boys in his class make fun of him. He buys Shinku through an online shopping site (is it eBay?) and she instantly appears in seconds.
This is where your dog went on "vacation".
While the action takes some time to start up, the art starts to drag you in. This author is even known for this type of art.
Living dolls ready to kill... Yay!
As I said they take a long time to introduce the characters, so what do they use to attract even more interest? Comedy! This whole entire manga practically reeks of this and I’m not even kidding.

As I said before, Jun is a boy whose been traumatized because he made a design for someone. The design was brilliant, most girls praised him. But of course, he didn’t hear this and started to become nervous and then he threw up. So from that day on, he stayed in his room for day in and day out.
NOT Comedy Central
Although Rozen Maiden is not finished it still is good. It targeted at a younger audience but I believe it attracts much more than that. Its art style is good for its genre (and in general) and comedy is also good but the plot takes way too long to set up.
