Destiny / Schicksal (運命 Unmei) is the eleventh episode of the Rozen Maiden anime series. It first aired in Japan on December 16, 2004.
Picking up where the previous episode left off, Shinku finds herself in Suigintou's dream world once again. While Shinku is distracted by some broken-down dolls, Suigintou traps Jun into his own dream world so his power cannot be lent to Shinku. With that done, the two engage in an all-out war with each other. Jun wakes up in his dream world and relives some unpleasant memories from his youth. Suigintou sends Sui Dream and Lempicka into his dream to torment him further. As they surround him with unpleasantries, the ring on his hand shatters but does not fall apart. Shinku finds her power sapped as she worries about him, and she attempts to escape. * *
Suiseiseki and Souseiseki enter Jun's dream world by way of Nori's dream world. Hinaichigo, meanwhile, is sent into Suigintou's dream world to rescue Shinku. Suigintou has tied up Shinku and tortures her for a bit, and she remains unfazed until shown a glimpse of how poorly Jun is holding up whilst trapped in his dream world. Before Suigintou can make another move, Hina creates a diversion to allow her and Shinku to enter Jun's dream world. Suigintou of course follows along. With everyone in Jun's dream world, Suiseiseki and Souseiseki manage to steal back their artificial spirits. Suiseiseki runs to the lake to water Jun's soul tree, Souseiseki and Shinku fight with Suigintou, Nori runs off to rescue Jun, and Hina is missing in action, only showing up after all the action has taken place. Shinku puts up a valiant effort against Suigintou's attacks, but her right arm is damaged in the process.
- This and Reiner Rubin are the only episodes of the first season where the title card appears immediately after the opening theme.
- "Schicksal" is German and means "Destiny".
