Rozen Maiden Manga Gets More Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Peach-Pit's manga already inspired 2 TV anime

Shueisha's Young Jump magazine is announcing that more of the anime adaptation of Peach-Pit's Rozen Maiden manga has been green-lit.

Peach-Pit launched Rozen Maiden in Gentosha's Monthly Comic Birz magazine in 2002 before switching to Shueisha's Young Jump magazine in 2008. It inspired two 12-episode television anime adaptations, Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden: Träumend, the two-episode prequel, Rozen Maiden: Ouvertüre in 2006, and a short special, Rozen Maiden: Detective Kun-Kun.

Geneon Entertainment licensed the original series and Rozen Maiden: Traumend for release in North America in 2007.

Funimation Entertainment then signed a deal with Geneon Entertainment in 2008 to distribute both Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden: Traumend in 2008. Sentai Filmworks picked up and released Rozen Maiden, Rozen Maiden: Traumend, and Rozen Maiden: Ouverture last year.
