    A word of warning:

    This is not going to be a remake of the original anime. It is an adaption of the alternate reality sequel currently serialized in Young Jump. Anyone who has not read, or seen, the original might find the story a little confusing. I would advise watching both seasons of the original anime before watching this version. In case anyone does not know the story:

    Quote Quote:
    Rozen Maiden originally ran in the monthly seinen Magazine, Comic Birz. After clashing with the publisher, Peach-Pit ended Rozen Maiden early. The ending was so bad, Peach-Pit publicly apologized to fans. A year later they struck a deal to serialize a sequel in Young Jump, essentially an alternate reality version of the series.

    As one who did that, this episode was still confusing, since apparently, Traumend took an anime-original path, deviating from the manga. Manga followers in MAL forums say it was a recap of the storyline up to a certain volume, so, I doubt next episodes will be in such a rush.
    Anyone who hasn't even watched the original series would instantly drop it, though, since it looked like a mess, trying to introduce all the characters.

    Re: Rozen Maiden (2013)

    I was right that it would be a remake, anyway I watched the previous seasons but it was some years ago. So the first episode was a recap? For me it wil be good to remind the story, but certainly this will be a bit bothersome for people who didn't watch previous seasons. Well, I already had good expectations thinking that it would be a remake, a new story increases even more my expectation.

    Well, you won't exactly be reminded of the previous animation, since Barasuishou and the Alice-game revolved around her wasn't canon. However, the "real" 7th doll mentioned in Traumend's final is making her storyline debut for anime in the recap, though, obviously, we won't get the hang of all just by this recap.
