Sentai Filmworks Licenses Rozen Maiden Anime, Sequel, OVA
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
FUNimation Entertainment then signed a deal with Geneon Entertainment in 2008 to distribute both Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden - Träumend in 2008. Rozen Maiden: Ouvertüre has not been released in North America before.
Sentai Filmworks will stream the series on "multiple digital outlets," and will release all three shows in a complete collection on DVD by Christmas. Sentai Filmworks will release Rozen Maiden: Ouvertüre OVA as a stand-alone DVD as well, featuring an English dub by BangZoom! Entertainment.
Peach-Pit's original Rozen Maiden manga, which has been running since 2003, ended its run in Monthly Comic Birz in 2007, then restarted in Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine in 2008. Tokyopop released the manga in North America until it closed its North American division earlier this year.
