Please, just let me say before anything else, I wasn't sure what to think upon first hearing of this, because I had heard before that it was a Gothic, depressing themed anime, but also a comedy. Well, it's both, really. There are many funny episodes that are entwined within the storyline, some episodes purely for character development, and i was laughing all the way through these. Some of the other episodes, I found myself emptying tissue box after tissue box.
The story follows 7 dolls, all made by the Master doll maker Rozen. The dolls must fight to survive in the world as they battle over perfection for the love of their "Father", Rozen. The story deals with endeavours of perfection and ultimate beauty, and harshly deals with the concept of dolls becoming junk, so it is quite sad in that sense, and there are many tear jerking moments throughout this series and the 2nd series, "Traumend". However, take my word for it, you WILL fall in love will the dolls (Hinaichigo Forever!).
The animation is also superb, really good quality. Each season only consists of 12 episodes (total 24 episodes) but the storyline is great and detailed none the less, so start watching.
