** ''Harm'' is likely a mistranslation of ''maim'', as the two frequently together.

*** '''Answer:''' Laplace's Demon is a reference to a theory by Pierre-Simon Laplace, who (in summary) theorised the idea that it could be possible for an intelligence to know the effect of something in the past and how that then links to a cause occurring in the future.So therefore, this intelligence was also able to know everything simply by determining the present to clearly see the past and the future as well and know how everything would unfold based upon how every decision is made. Basically, [[spoiler: Laplace's Demon is a figure with omniscience on par with God or the Devil. So he's the natural choice as referee for such an important event.]]



** [[spoiler: And our dear /Boku/ has regained her body... at least, until Gin decides to retake what is hers. So if Tea Bitch does the same, we will be back at square one.]]

** Ever watched the Ouverture OVA? Suigintou was a rose-less doll in it, and it happens about a hundred years before the series starts. At the end, [[spoiler:Rozen's spirit grants Gin a Rosa Mystica, so that she can fight and prove herself. Then sprouts her raven wings, which are her Rosa's special power]] so no, Gin ''did not'' have one all along, and yet she lived.

** even then [[spoiler: Gin moved and gained her personality before she had a Roza Mystica, a doll's consiousness is very dependant of their own identity, as seen with the broken doll. For Souseiseki and Hinaichigo their Roza Mystica is tied into their identity as is the idea that when they lose theirs they will cease to move. So their minds make it real]]

*** '''Answer:''' [[spoiler: There is another way; a Rozen Maiden can willingly surrender their Roza Mystica to the doll they believe is more worthy than themselves to become Alice.]]



* At the end of Traumend, [[spoiler: Hina Ichigo and Souseseki were not brought back like every single other doll.]] The logic of this being that they were defeated by other Rozen Maidens, [[spoiler: Shinku and Sugintou, respectively.]] therefore losing the right to become Alice. So, Sugintou was [[spoiler: defeated]] at the end of season one by Shinku. By that logic, Sugintou [[spoiler: also should not have been brought back.]] because she technically lost the right to participate also. (If Rozen loves Sugintou [[spoiler: enough to bring her back after dying three times]], why doesn't he just make her Alice and be done with it?)

to:

** The game had already started when [[spoiler: Souseiseki was eliminated from the Alice Game]]. Hinaichigo's loss in the first and second anime was because she had already been defeated, but Shinku's "mercy" allowed her to remain animate. However, as the game had then begun officially, there was no longer any exceptions allowed to continue after this point. [[spoiler: in the manga and third anime, Hinaichigo was eliminated by Kirakishou, but she surrendered her Roza Mystica to Shinku rather than what happened in the earlier anime.]]

** '''Answer:''' not to the manga, but the first anime was already diverging a little, so ''Traumend'' is still canon as a sequel to the anime.

** '''Answer:''' The -seiseki twins have always had the ability to control plants as is their role as gardeners, [[spoiler: the clock (made of wood) was technically alive despite its inanimate state since it was indirectly halting time. The twins were there just to force it to restart it again]]. The purpose of them working together is them connected to controlled growth; Suiseiseki can grow the plant, but Souseiseki prunes it to keep it in shape or to cut it down if it grows too large, hence their watering-can and scissors compilation. Plus, they were in the N-Field ([[spoiler: which is akin to a dreamland-like place so impossibilities are near limitless as long as you have lucid control]]), so

*** Another question relating to that, how well could Jun even manage two of his dolls fighting ''each other''? I know they pointed it out how he handles several dolls like a champ but they were all fighting someone else at the time and Hinaichigo and Shinku only ended fighting because Shinku pointed out how much of a toll Hinaichigo was taking on Tomoe.

*In the third season, Suiseiseki and Souseiseki suddenly are given two reality-altering powers that they claim to have had all along, but to use the powers they must work together. It plays a big role in the ending but where the hell did these powers come from? Seems like an ass pull.

* Out of curiousity, are we supposed to consider Rozen in any way worthy of the desperate WellDoneSonGuy love most of the dolls have towards him? His actions, particularly the one of making his creations, who are living things rather than just dolls, believe the only way to be worthy of his love is to ''kill each other'' and not telling any of them there were other ways, seem to qualify him as a colossal JerkAss at best, if not an outright CompleteMonster. .
** Except for making the dolls fight each other for the title of Alice, there are no real explicit bad intentions in Rozen's motifs. I also seem to think that your definitions of both JerkAss ''and'' CompleteMonster are very off, as there are people who have done worse things than just arranging a tournament to the death and are not considered irredeemably evil (the one most defining feature of the CompleteMonster) and as for Rozen being a JerkAss... Nah, if he were a real dick like that, the dolls wouldn't love him, right? Besides, in the end he does inform the dolls of a better way to complete the Alice Game, so that really disproves him as an irredeemable asshole. Not perfect, by all means, but still not 100% bad.

* After watching the third anime season, ''Zuruckspulen'' I still have a lot of questions. First of all, who or what the hell is that anthropomorphic rabbit that keeps popping up? He's apparently called "Laplace's Demon", but I don't think his name has ever been mentioned, nor does anyone in the anime know who he is. Second, who is Father and where/how did he get the power to create the rozen maidens? And why did he abandon Suigintou in ''Overture''? (Although I have read that that plot was only a problem in the anime). Who is Kirakishou and why didn't she have a normal body? Now I realize that the manga ended prematurely and I'm not sure if there is a proper conclusion, but I just wanted to know if there was any information that I had missed.

** Although it was Suigintou and Shinku fighting at the time, Shinku never actually landed a "finishing blow" on Suigintou. In the end, her final attack backfired and ended up exposing her as unfinished, and then she was pulled back into the N-Field (or... wherever.) Considering the fact that when Suigintou returned in the second season she was in pristine condition again (sans her missing stomach), it might even be possible to say that it was Rozen who summoned her to him once again to be made proper for the official Alice fights much like he did in Ouverture and the end of season two.
