I can't believe it's been so long.

This site is dead. The last post was made months ago. It's doubtful, from hereon, that there will ever be another one made. This site's doom is close, and any day, it will become just another grain of sand in the digital wind, tossed aside.

Yet, I remain.

I got into Rozen Maiden during an exceptionally tough time in my life. I was raised in a strictly religious and hostile family in a small country town, raised to become tough, rigid, strong, unyielding.

In high school, I had very few friends. I had built a room around myself, convinced myself I shall wander the earth alone, devoid of feeling, trapped in a cage built of stoicism.

I became close to a quiet, modest girl in creative writing class. What caught my eye was her binder, laden with all sorts of cut-outs of colorful figures. I found her sort of brave to not be afraid to stick out in a small school. She was thrilled someone was at least interested in her hobbies, and she told me all about the show. Eventually, we hung out at her house and we actually binged the entire first season.

Why does this show make me feel so melancholic? It felt this way when I first watched it, but the feeling gets stronger every time I rewatch it

>> No.11141   [Delete]   [Edit]

I come back from time to time to this site and others like it in an attempt to hopelessly cling to the past, to an era that's not coming back, you know, that whole otaku/anime/internet culture of the 00's that Rozen Maiden was part of.
And I mean, more than wanting to go back to it, it's something I wish I had been part of. I witnessed that era, caught glimpses of it, merely touched the surface, friends at school and people on the internet as well, but back then I just avoided it, probably because I felt insecure about it. Yet I realized that deep inside this sort of stuff always called to me, like whenever someone would pass me some fansubbed anime on dvd and convinced me to give it a try, I would lock the door to my room and binge on it, always with that feeling of guilty pleasure. But it wasn't until I became an adult, 2010 or so that I really started to get into this stuff, you know, be more honest with myself.
Though it's been like 5 years since I first saw RM, I already felt like I was late to the party back then, same with all the classics of that time that I'm still catching up on. That's not to say anime today isn't good, most of my favorite series are from the last 3 years or so, but that's besides the point.
Honestly I don't know exactly where I'm going with this post, there's just so much to talk about the topic, it goes way beyond rozen maiden or anime in general but the feeling that everything back then was more innocent, especially on the internet which lately has become so tied to real world problems, and I'm glad sites like these are still up to let us remember simpler days.

There is definetly something to say about Desuchan as a site. It has even outlived 8chan´s death. RM was the heart and soul of most /b/tards back then. Could it be that this site survives because it still holds the true spirit of old anons? Or did we somehow summon a protective deity without our knowing by endlessly spamming DESU, even before Kek?

>> No.11227   [Delete]   [Edit]

Is there an archive of this site? I don't want to think it'll go down any time soon, but I expect that when it does, hopefully not less than 10-20 years from now, it'll do so quietly. Having even just a snapshot of the site would be good simply for the preservation of history and culture.

  1. whats the hosting
  2. what is the budget?
  3. how "questionable" is the material

A recommendation was provided:

>its about 7.99 a month
>unlimited storage

"its Vietamese hosting so you could store next to anything and no one would care or check"
hope this will help.

Does anyone knows where to find english translations of the rozen maiden novels? Mainly I'm looking for Rot-Schwarz, but I would like to read all of them. Thanks in advance.

Sweet, awesome work!

I'll start scanning the text for you. I've now got Kalkgrün Augen and Schwarzer Wind.

I really appreciate the translation as I want to read these novels too.

I'm also keen make these novels into epubs, which I guess makes sense after they're fully scanned

>> No.11216   [Delete]   [Edit]

Here's Kalkgrun Augen:


This time I didn't do any post processing on the pages with text, only the images.

I'll do Schwarzer Wind tomorrow, and that will be all the offical RM novels scanned

>> No.11217   [Delete]   [Edit]

I can't wait to labor over this for the next few months or so. I learned a lot from doing Zwillinge (which is why the quality is super bad at first) so these last 2 should come out a bit better.

>> No.11218   [Delete]   [Edit]

Here's Schwarzer Wind:


If there are any pages which I've missed or aren't good enough, just let me know and I'll get another scan

I compiled Rot Schwarz into an epub, and read it on my kindle and it came out really well.

Here's Rot Schwarz.epub

If we ever do see another anime I can see it happening in one of 2 ways:
One, the Japanese feel nostalgia for Rozen Maiden enough for a readaptation of the first manga. However, I do not feel that this is likely for a few more years.
Two, Rozen Maiden 0 is doing well enough for a studio to take interest in adapting it. The earliest I can see this outcome happening is roughly once volume 4 comes out, by then there should be enough story to adapt.
However, I wouldn't get my hopes up. The 2013 anime bombed so bad that I worry studios won't consider ever touching Rozen Maiden again.

>> No.11170   [Delete]   [Edit]

thats a big OOF

>> No.11171   [Delete]   [Edit]

Yeah. Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE a new Rozen Maiden anime, I just don't think it's likely unless a miracle happens.
If it's any comfort I've seen a lot of Japanese Twitter users talk about wanting another anime too.

>> No.11172   [Delete]   [Edit]

well lets just hope that it happens in the future.

I just want a continuation of the 2004 series so I can see if Souseiseki and Hinaichigo get revived.

This last bonus chapter was nice. it was strange seeing Kira and Shinku appearing at the same time.


I want a S3, but i can't see of where they can take the series.

They left S2 in a weird place. With the Alice game concluded, there's no more doll conflict. And with a happy Jun wanting to go to Africa to get rocks to make a new Rosa Mystica. If they pick up RM3 there an African setting won't suit rozen maiden well.

It would have been nice if they had ended RM2 with a bitter sweet ending, and left out the whole open ended african rocks thing. Having an unwound Jun with a useless doll would have been a nice touch. Having the reader wonder if he was imagining it the whole time due to severe social isolation would have more of a punch to it.

Rozen Maiden works well with an underlying physiological void that the themes are extracted from. Having RM3 start fresh, or a spin off, would mean they could take more creative liberties. They could have Jun making dolls of his own, and this could be the basis of the next series.

>> No.11201   [Delete]   [Edit]

interesting views. i think they could expand a bit more on the metaphysical topics of the series. all this about n-fields, the laplace demon etc. these things have always been just taken as granted and that's it. well but it will take aeons, if it should ever happen. if at all, they will first make an anime of the rest, then some day an anime about 0, maybe then a continuation.

>> No.11202   [Delete]   [Edit]

I used to really want a conclusion to the main manga, but as you've said, it left off on a strange place. The most they could answer with it is if Jun succeeds in making Shinku a new Rosa Mystica. Although, I suppose, they could also get into what the humans did after the game ended and what exactly the dolls are doing now that the game is over. Overall, it had a good run and I can at least imagine what ended up happening. If the bonus chapter is to be interpreted this way, then it seems Jun did make Shinku a new Rosa Mystica after all.

However, and I won't get into it much due to translations being behind so I do not want to spoil much for anyone, but I think between the manga continuities I would rather RM0 get a new manga. RM0 is apparently a prequel but so many of the details contradict what happens later on in the main manga. I would like if Peach-Pit could at least better connect it to the timeline, new manga or not, because as it stands right now, you can skip reading RM0 and miss out on literally nothing relevant to the manga later on.

>an African setting won't suit rozen maiden well

I disagree. We've already had some fairly strange settings happen: 1920's Japan (Rozen Maiden 0), 1890's Britain (Rot-Schwarz lightnovel, although this is an estimation), and late 1500's Holy Roman Empire (Zwillinge lightnovel, an estimation as well). Peach-Pit could totally do a modern day African setting and still have it be the introverted Rozen Maiden that we know if they wanted to.

It definitely adds a lot to the story from the few tidbits of what I have seen. Since it has multiple endings that can answer a few what-ifs, like if NW!Jun accepted Kira's offer or Jun somehow entered Suigintou's dream again. Unfortunately there is no translations out there as of rn. But if you know Japanese I would say it is worth it.

I can already tell that the Suigintou figure is going to sell like hotcakes even in the chance that the prototype/finished product looks a little off. I've never heard of this company before so I hope they do both characters good and hopefully make new figs for the other dolls too
