Spoiled teenager Jun Sakurada uses an incident at school as an excuse to shut himself in his room. Ordering everything he needs through his computer (and returning most of the packages just before payment is due), with a loving and supportive big sister to take care of everything else, he is stagnating in a comfortable cocoon. Then he receives a package he doesn't expect, containing an elaborate and beautiful antique doll-compare to Steel Angel Kurumi and Rizelmine. When he winds her mechanism, she springs into life and speaks to him. Her name is Shinku, and she's one of an elite "sisterhood" of dolls who take sibling rivalry to combative extremes. She has a rose-red gown, sweet face, and long blonde hair, but she also has a very powerful personality and Jun is forced to metamorphose out of his chrysalis of comfort and meet other doll owners as Shinku's "medium"-or her slave. A second series, RM: Traumend, followed in 2005 from the same crew. Based on a manga by "Peach Pit," the fanzine-turned-pro collective that also created DearS, picking up neatly on the craze for expensive customized dolls (like Volks' Super Dollfie line) which become as much part of their owners' lives as real people. Part of the relatively recent "Gothic Lolita" subgenre of anime, based on the fashion fad of the same name, and also found in Petite Cossette and Moon Phase.
