The chapters of the manga series Rozen Maiden (ローゼンメイデン Rōzen Meiden?) were written and drawn by Peach-Pit. The first chapter premiered in the September 2002 issue of Comic Birz where it was serialized monthly until it came to an abrupt halt in the June 2007 issue, due to the author's hospitalization[1]. The series then re-started in April 2008, this time appearing in Weekly Young Jump[2], where it is again being serialized monthly. The series follows Jun Sakurada, a hikikomori who spends most of his time locked in the safety of his room and ordering items from the internet. However, through a strange order form, he finds himself in possession of an enchanted doll that calls herself "Shinku, the fifth Rozen Maiden doll".


First series

The 43 chapters (referred to as "Phases") of the first series were collected and published in eight tankōbon volumes by Gentosha starting on March 2003; the last volume was released on June 2007. The manga series is licensed for regional language releases by Tokyopop in the United States, Germany, and Canada[3], by Soleil Manga in France[4], and by Flashbook in Italy[5].
