Summary: (animenewsnetwork.com) Due to a deep trauma at school Sakurada Jun has refused to return. He spends his time in his room, surfing the web and ordering anything that takes his fancy, only to return the items just before payment is due. One day, he finds a web site that tells him to put his order in a drawer of his desk. He does so thinking it to be a joke, only to find that the letter disappears and a strange package arrives soon afterwards. It contains an exquisite doll, that, when wound, comes to life. She treats him as a servant of little worth, but over time helps him come to grips with his fears and in the life-or-death fights that soon follow her arrival.

Review: I hated this anime at first, but then returned to it a year later, loving it. No, it's not "gothloli no gashbell" in the least - it's far more complicated IMO. The story and character designs are gorgeous, and it all fits very well together. I'm still going through watching all of the episodes for this first season, but I love what I've seen. I especially love the Suigintou/Shinku conflict. Mmm, incesty girl love. @__@ I'm glad they're hinting more at Father and his past this season, though, since I still don't quite get what that is all about and why the Alice Game is so damned important in order to meet him. Hopefully the manga can fill me in.

Final Review: A
