while the old Rozen Maiden (2004) created its own plot, the new Rozen Maiden (2013) followed strictly the plot of the manga. on the surface the new series seemed like a recap of the old series, it was actually a whole new version of it. in some ways, the new series assumed that its viewers were already familiar with the details of the previous series. new viewers would appreciate the series somewhat lesser in comparison.
