    Great storyline

    I really enjoyed reading Alice 19th. It is about a young girl named Alice and about the trials she faces as a lotus master, or word master. She first discovered this power after she saved a bunny from being hit by a car and then it turned into a girl and explained things to her. Then she got in a fight with her sister and realized she had gotten her sister swallowed up in darkness. Now with the help of some new and old friends she must fight to get her sister back. This really caught my attention when I first read it and it will be enjoyable to whoever else reads it as well. There is also a love interest in it. It has really well drawn pictures in it and the storyline is exciting and sometimes it is realistic as well as magical.

    Alice 19th is a very cool book

    The story follows Alice Seno, a very shy 15 year old girl, who's sister is the most popular girl in school. On day she saves a rabbit girl and is given great power. This is one of the best books I have ever read. Aside from the crummy english translation the story is amazing. Anyone who enjoyed Fruits Basket or D.N.Angel is sure to love this!

    Yu Watase is AMAZING!!!!!

    I absolutely love all of Yu Watase's work, and Alice 19th is no exception! This is probably my favorite manga series ever (next to Fullmetal Alchemist)!!! Alice is someone I can really connect with, and the whole theme with the 'power of words' is an awesome one! I also really love fantasy stories set in the real world. Plus, Nyozeka is just so darn cute!!! This manga is just an awesome one! Read it, NOW!!

    This book is so good

    See i love this book. My friend let me borrow it and i loved it! I mean Alice is a good girl, she with holds all of her feelings just so people will like her. Kyo is so cool. I mean i love him, i think he really likes Alice insede of her sister, but since Alice made him think that she didn't like him, he choose her sister. This book really touched me. The battle they did was so cool, but I have seen better ones. I read this first book i wanted the rest, so now i am looking for all of them.

    Lotis Sandura READ!

    Alice 19th, has to be one of the most ingenious stories that I've ever heard. It's blend of real life drama and extraordinary remake of the power of words, can posses any reader and take them on a journey guided purely by the turn of the next page.

    Worth more than 5 stars

    Alice 19th is an awesome story for any manga lover. People can relate to the main charaters personality, giving the reader a better understanding of the story. Its heart warming, and also shows that siblings can care abiut each other, no matter what they say. And that you need to watch your words ^^

    Very Creative and Suberb Imagination and Animation

    This had to be one of the best manga books i've ever read ( pardon me)I mean shojo. It had a wonderful plot, beautiful animation, fresh characters, funny, and it had a good (wat's the word) theme I guess. Anyway this book rocks and I recommend it to anyone.

    WORDS HAVE POWER

    15 year old Alice Seno is the youngest of two daughters so you would figure her parents would baby her, but that's not the case. Her older sister, Mayura, gets all the attention and favoritism. On top of that Alice has a severe inferiority complex towards Mayura. This is complicated by the fact that both sisters are in love with the same boy, Kyo Wakamiya. Well, I suppose all of this seems rather ordinary, except for the fact that a magical rabbit shows up, who can also change form into a little girl. This magical girl, Nyozeka, informs Alice that she is a Lotis Master, whatever that means. Alice soon gets a inkling of what it means when she accidentally makes her sister disappear into nothingness. Words have power. This was a very good manga. The art is fantastic and easy to follow. While it does dip into the girly side of shojo at times, it's a series that seems to have an appeal to both genders. Check it out.

    *Another Great Read by Yu Watase*

    This has to be one of Watase's best works up to date. Its about a girl named Alice Seno, who wishes that her sister would just dissapear, and she does. She not only dissapears, she is controled by Darva, a dark force. Alice has to join up with her sister's boyfriend, Kyo, in order to save her sister. But when times get tough, Kyo seems to have fallen for Alice. What will happen? Read this 7 book series to find out!

    soooo0 good

    Alice is a shy girl who is jealous of the 'relationship' between her sis nd kyo (the boy she crushes). One day she wished for her sister to disappear because she was being inconsiderate of Alice's feelings. Not only did her sister, Mayura, disappear, she also joined forces with the Darva (an evil force). Kyo and Alice quickly collaborated to find Mayura, and their friendship developed into something more. --wait that was a summary-- the book is realli good read it!
