    Review from The Neverending Shelf

    Follow Alice down the rabbit hole again in the exciting new adventure... manga style. Alice in the Country of Hearts (Vol. 1) is an enticing mixture of the traditional Alice in Wonderland with a new twist. The tale begins with Alice awaking from a dream concerning a mysterious game. Upon telling her sister of the game, she believes that Alice's subconscious is eager for some entertainment, and hurries off to find some cards. Much like the original tale, Alice spies a white rabbit in the distance with a large clock. However, instead of following the white rabbit, it comes to her and explains that she is not following him as she should. To Alice's surprise, the rabbit turns into a man with white rabbit ears. He quickly grabs her and thrusts her into a large hole that has mysteriously appeared. And off to Wonderland we go...

    Once in Wonderland, Peter White (aka the white rabbit) explains to Alice that she must drink from a magic vial. Upon refusing, Peter forces Alice through a kiss. And thus the game begins... While not much is known about the game in the first volume, I have to say that I am intrigued. The main characters are still in here, but with a twist: The Mad Hatter is a Mafia Boss named Blood Dupre, Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dum are the gatekeepers to Blood's home and territory, the Cheshire cat is Boris, a punk teenager with cat ears, and of course, Peter White, the man with rabbit ears who is madly in love with Alice. Actually, it seems that most of the male characters are in love with Alice. But to find out why.... you will have to read the manga.

    For me, this volume was a lot of fun. The manga was full of interesting twists while staying pretty true to the original tale. Alice is a wonderful main character. But I have to say that Blood was my favorite. He reminded me a lot of Gambit from X-Men, without the powers. In addition to the great characters, the drawings in the novel are top notch. They are beautiful to look at, and immerse the reader in this new world that QuinRose and Hoshino Soumei have created. I loved every second of this novel and cannot wait to go down the rabbit hole to discover more. Highly recommend for manga and Alice in Wonderland lovers. This is one that should not be missed.

    Wow what a cool twist on Alice!

    When I saw this at the store, I immediately grabbed it! With all of this Alice in Wonderland hype that seems to be popular lately, thanks of course to Disney and Tim Burton, I thought it might be fun to read something inspired by Alice. And what's even cooler is it is in manga format!! I think it should be noted though that this was actually written two years ago so it even precedes all of the recent Alice hype, which is pretty cool.
    The story is obviously based on Lewis Carroll's classic tale but of course the author puts a characteristic manga spin on it. The plot starts the same way,with Alice out in her garden reading, but instead of running after the white rabbit of her own accord and falling down the hole, the rabbit actually kidnaps her and drags her into Wonderland with him! Apparently, he loves her! Oh and he is an actual person but sometimes appears as a rabbit. He makes her drink some medicine which starts "the game." The game can only end when she has explored all of Wonderland and met all of it's inhabitants and then she can return home. The story itself has some elements of mystery which keep the reader guessing. I think this is a nice touch.
    The Alice in this story is very unlike Carroll's original Alice. She is pretty headstrong but at the same time just an innocent teenage girl. She seems very nice at times but she isn't afraid to speak her mind. This comes in handy seeing as Wonderland is full of guys who are strangely attracted to her or just in love with her. Characters include all those inspired from the original but with the author's own funky twist: there are Tweedledee and dum, the Cheshire cat, the rabbit, the hatter, and the queen of hearts, to name a few. The locations are drawn from the original, as well, such as the heart palace and the spooky woods.
    Even though the author took all his inspiration from the classic story he has done a very good job adding his own style and twists to the story and the characters. There is no doubt that this story is fresh and original. I recommend it to all "Alice" and manga fans. Very fun read!! I can't wait to read the next ones...

    Best Wonderland Manga Ever!

    This manga, Heart No Kuni no Alice (Alice in the country of hearts) just happens to be my favorite manga right after Loveless! I've been reading it on ManagaFox.com, but when i saw it here, i was just like,"...No...way...." And then i screamed. The characters are completely wonderful and charming, the storyline is thrilling and exciting, the art is beautiful and shows passion for the storyline. As a BIG fan of everything Wonderland (and also all things strange, unordinary, and manga) this is at the top of my list!

    Awesome re-vision of Alice in Wonderland

    So far, I've personally read Vol. 2 and 3 because the B&N I go to did not have the first volume unfortunately but this book is very, VERY good! The tradition of Alice entering wonderland and meeting the queen of hearts and the other characters are there but it's in the famous manga style of course and instead of them being animals, most of them are in human form and everyone is so GORGOUES! (If you end up reading this, there's this blond hair guy name Elliot *sighs* hes so hot)I reccomend this to ANYONE who loves Alice in Wonderland! The 4th volume comes out soon so I'd get to reading this! Even though I haven't read this volume myself, I still like the fact that the story is enough to make fall in love with the characters as well as bring you back childhood memories and make you want to read this even more! :)

    Lewis Carroll fan or not, this book is a great read!

    Quinrose's version of Alice is fresh and new! The plot and characters are intriguing and keep you wanting to know more. "Alice in the Country of Hearts" or in its original Japanese title, "Heart no Kuni no Alice," takes a different approach to the original Lewis Carroll story of "Alice in Wonderland." However, this is not the Alice that readers of Carroll are familiar with, which presents us with an exciting new twist on the story.

    In Quinrose's story, Alice is kidnapped into Wonderland by a rabbit named Peter White who can change from a rabbit into a handsome man with bunny ears. Wonderland is divided up into four territories. The Clock Tower is neutral ground, but the other three areas (the Castle of Hearts, the Mafia mansion, and the Amusement Park) are at war with each other. As Alice explores her new world she encounters the potential love interests who live in each territory, including Blood Dupre (the Mad Hatter who is the head of Wonderland's mafia) and Elliot (the March Hare--a man with rabbit ears) who works for the mafia family, to Boris (the Cheshire cat--a man with cat ears and tail) who lives in the Amusement Park, to Ace (the knight of hearts) and Peter who live in Heart Castle and so on. The manga is based off of a Japanese otome game (a dating sim game in which the player chooses who Alice ends up with).

    However, the deep, dark, intricate underlying plot makes this more than a typical shojo comedy romance. There are secrets in this world that characters like Julius (the clock tower master) and Peter (the white rabbit) want to keep from Alice. Secrets about what "Wonderland" really is, how it really functions, and Alice's role in it, and also secrets about Alice and the sister she left behind in her own world. Wonderland is a place full of danger as characters do not value life, reasoning that they can easily be replaced (another secret), and thus pull guns out of thin air without care. Characters are unpredictable and often not as they first appear. Almost every character has a darker side or secrets they hide.

    This book has comedy, romance, mystery, and is also psychological. This book really keeps you wanting to know what happens next. I've read up to Vol. 4 in Japanese, and I'm still hooked. The only reason why I gave this sereies a 4 out of 5 (though the Japanese version deserves a 5/5) is because Tokyopop's translations get on my nerves because they are not quite true to Quinrose's original in Japanese.

    My problems with Tokyopop's translation:
    1. They have Peter White rhyme, which he does not do in the Japanese verison. Perhaps Tokyopop is trying to make the story more Carroll-esque by doing so, but that ruins the fact that this is definitely NOT Carroll's work, but an original story. Peter's rhymes are extremely annoying and it ruins the image of his character by making him seem silly.

    2. There is too much unneeded English/American slang used to "Americanize" the story which makes it feel awkward and not as formal or serious.

    3. Dee and Dum do NOT call Alice "lady", but "onee-san" (big sister-> can be used for someone not related) in the Japanese version. By leaving out the Japanese honorifics, they leave out some of the meaning behind what Dee and Dum call her. It should not be forgotten that this IS a Japanese story and these things are important.

    Great manga!

    I started reading Heart no Kuni no Alice on Mangafox. Now that it's released here, I will most definitely be buying it. It takes Alice in Wonderland and transforms it into a story ten times better. The art is really cute and the characters are very likeable.
