Tears / Tränen (涙 Namida) is the sixth episode of the Rozen Maiden anime series. It first aired in Japan on November 11, 2004.
Nori and the dolls are terrified after a particularly scary episode of Detective Kun-kun, but Jun is unfazed. While Jun and Shinku bicker about his role as her "servant" and his lack of direction in life, Suiseiseki and Hinaichigo investigate a strange noise from the storage room. Suigintou sucks Hina into the mirror, leaving Jun, Suiseiseki, and Shinku to rescue her. They recruit the assistance of some old toys in the storage room, including the clown from the first episode, before heading into Suigintou's dream world. While searching for Hina, Jun questions the meaning of the Alice Game and worries what would happen to Shinku if she were to lose. Suigintou appears before them and confirms all of Jun's fears. * *
Suigintou mocks Shinku for caring about a "stupid child" like Hina. Shinku demands the safe return of Hina, but Suigintou pelts her with feathers. The toys from the storage room play defence, so Suigintou assembles her own army of broken and abandoned dolls to level the playing field. Suigintou lands a nasty blow to that clown, causing him to fall apart. Nonetheless, after a bit more fighting, she senses her defeat and vanishes into the depths of the dream world, leaving Hinaichigo safely in Jun's arms. The gang returns home and Jun stitches the clown back together. The dolls are amazed by his work, but Shinku becomes comatose not long after. Now it's up to Jun, Suiseiseki, and Hina to revive her before it's too late!
- Animation error: When Suiseiseki is finished poking around the storage room, she returns to Hina's side without standing up or walking backwards.
