    Some people find the Alice books confusing so I hope this helps.

    Some people find the Alice books confusing so I hope this helps.  This manga is based off of a Japanese otome game, or a romantic game for girls.  The company that made the game is QuinRose.  In this game, the main character, Alice, can end up with one of the many handsome, crazy guys who live in the new world she is taken to.  The Alice in the Country of Hearts omnibus books are one play-through of the game.  The other spin offs in the Country of Hearts are adaptations of other play-throughs.  Right now it is The Clockmaker's Story for Julius' route and My Fanatic Rabbit for Elliot).

    The Alice in the Country of Clover series is based off of the second game in this series.  The Cheshire Cat Waltz is an adaptation of Boris' Route.  We currently also have the spin offs of Ace of Hearts for Ace and the Bloody Twins for Dee and Dum.

    Finally, we have Alice in the Country of Joker, which is based off of a third game in the series.

    It is best to read at least the main 3 omnibus books of Alice in the Country of Hearts first.  Things will make a lot more sense.  I would also read the Cheshire Cat books from Alice in the Country of Clover before reading the Alice in the Country of Joker books.

    QuinRose also made Crimson Empire, which is why there are Crimson Empire previews and short stories in some of the manga.

    I hope this was helpful!
