Rozen Maiden ~träumend~ 02


Shinku and Barasuishou fight with Shinku getting the short end of the stick. But before they’re finished off, a hole kicks them out of the World, possibly done by Mr. Laplace Demon a.k.a Evil Mad Hatter. The next day we get some Hina Ichigo and Suisuiseki interaction. There was a really “WTF!!” moment when I realised that the mad Shinku was the invention of Suisuiseki. Talk about misleading trailers.

Shinku however has changed much after the fight, avoiding the rest in an attempt to conceal Barasuishou’s appearence to them. Sousuiseki, however, realises it and confronts Shinku about it.In the end, she reveals Barasuishou’s appearence to the rest. Tomoe and Jun visit a doll shop with a creepy shopkeeper (who could be Friagne’s best friend) and we get a glimpse of a guy that remotely looks like Father. Jun buys some presents for the gang from the shop and Shinku returns to her normal ojou-sama self when she receives it.

Next week, Kanaria gets introduced. For a more complete summary, please go to Memento.


A good set-up episode for the following events. The Laplace Demon’s intentions and roles are still very much unknown, seemingly luring Shinku to Barasuishou and then rescuing them from her. I would wager a guess he’s an agent of Father or at the least, one of Father’s creations. Now, if i coud understand what the heck he’s saying. I guess the fansubbers are gonna hate this guy :P.

Shinku and Jun’s relationship seem to be getting better and better to the point I’m afraid that Jun might turn to Friagne II. Hopefully it doesn’t happen ^^. Barasuishou also looks really cool (but not as much as in the manga) but as for theories and thoughts, not much comes into mind. Haven’t seen much of her yet.

As usual, Hina Ichigo and Suisuiseki(evil as usual) provides the comic relief. I was especially “WTF!!”-ed on the realization that this was actually Suisuiseki’s imagination. I was seriously thinking that Shinku might go into that mode, XD. Sousuiseki also plays the “quiet observer” part really good. She’s good at picking up hints and whatsoever, but then, she’s in the “Adult” category, along with Shinku.

There’s also Friagne’s best friend and the “Father” look-alike to contend with. I would wonder if the shopkeeper is the Laplace Demon in disguise. Well, ~träumend~’s in it’s second episode only, so there’s much to (un)cover.
