This year's 17th issue of Shueisha's Young Jump magazine is announcing on Thursday that the new Rozen Maiden anime will run this summer on the TBS and BS-TBS television stations.

Peach-Pit launched the original manga 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 the 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 in 2011.
