**Announcement: Rozen Maiden ~träumend~ OST out. Get it while it’s hot :).**Madoka(Megu’s song) alone is worth the whole album.
In a fit of rage, Shinku goes crazy and pins Suigintou to the ground, questioning her if this is what she wants. Barasuishou takes the chance to attack, causing both of them to change to a more hidden venue. Inside, Shinku continues to question Suigintou, but is ended when Suigintou takes a barrage of crystals from Bara. Defeated, Suigin’s two Roza Mysticas float to Bara and Shinku, one each. Shinku gains Suigintou’s memories of Megu and Bara’s manipulation, angering her and she faces Bara seriously.
In a final flurry of attacks, Shinku manages to beat Bara and pin her down. She tries to deal the final blow, but is interrupted by Jun. Jun persuades her to stop and Bara takes advantage of the distraction to deal Shinku a fatal blow instead. Bara gains all the Roza Mystica’s and Father rushes to congratulate her. It’s revealed that he isn’t really Rozen, but his student instead, and he created Bara to surpass Rozen Maiden’s. Angered, Jun questions why he did all this, but he gets slapped away.
Suddenly, Bara starts to crack and crumble to dust. Both her and her maker disappear in a flash of light, scattering the Roza Mystica’s. The Laplace Demon appears and comments it has been fun and leaves as sudden as he appears. Jun holds Shinku’s lifeless body and shouts, demanding Rozen to appear. Jun’s attempts succeeds and Rozen appears with four Roza Mystica’s.
Cut forward, Rozen is in his workshop, fixing Suigintou, Suiseiseki, Kanaria and Shinku. Noticing that Shinku’s awake,Rozen embraces her and says something we can’t hear. Rozen’s figure is then replaced by Jun’s and Shinku tells him about Rozen. Jun reveals that Rozen is going to continue his pursuit of Alice in other ways and the Alice Game is now unneeded. Everybody has been restored except for Souseiseki and Hina Ichigo and it’s Shinku’s responsibility over them now. Jun and Shinku then head home to Suiseiseki and Nori.
I’m not really sure on what to say about the ending. The ending did resolve most of the plotlines that had emerged in ~träumend~, but also leaves enough unsolved mysteries for a potential 3rd season, like Souseiseki and Hina’s Roza Mystica’s whereabouts. The Laplace Demon’s purpose is also subject to much debate as he seems to be the ultimate mastermind of the whole thing.
I really didn’t expect such a big twist in the end though, with the revelation of the fake Rozen and the appearance of the true Rozen to announce the end of the Alice Game. Suigintou fans also rejoice as she’s finally complete and not “junk” now. I expect, no, demand the (if will be made)3rd season to have her in the humourous situations with the rest of the gang.I’m sure a lot of fans would love it ^_-.
Overall, it was a fun watch, though I still think the last few episodes were really quite a mess, most due to the “rushed” feel of the Alice Game. Rozen Maiden deserves more situational comedy and a 3rd season, if not mainly to revive back Souseiseki and Hina Ichigo. If possible, I would like to see more of Rozen and his purpose of chasing Alice. It’s too bad the manga hasn’t been scanlated :(. Continue below for screencaps.
