I had never heard of Rozen Maiden before I met Pullip, but she was kind enough to give me an introduction to these lovely ladies. Manga can be very deceiving – you’d think a story about 7 dolls looking for masters would be cute and sweet. When you find out their mission is to destroy each other to become the ultimate doll for some Svengali-esque doll-maker, well, you get a swift kick in the pants about how the Japanese throw down.
But I digress. I was pleased to have Suiseiseki come to hang with my Pullip doll crew, and would you believe she had zero intention of destroying her fellow dolls? She was just happy to get out of this box.
