Overview

Alice Seno seems like a normal girl in high school. She's a bit shy, she has a crush on a boy name Kyo, and she has a pretty older sister, Mayura, who is more popular than she is - especially with Kyou. Pretty normal stuff, until one day when, walking down the street, Alice hears strange voices instructing her to save a rabbit from being run over by a car. Alice's brave act almost costs her her life, but the handsome Kyo saves her. Meanwhile, it seems the rabbit is no ordinary bunny, but a magical entity with great powers. Before she can figure out what's going on, the rabbit vanishes, only to reappear as a beam of light with a strange message just for Alice.

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.

(originally written for Anime on DVD)The story kicks off with Alice doing e-mail via her cell phone. We don't know who she's writing, but she's asked if there's someone special in their life. There is?an upperclassman in her high school named Kyo. However, her older sister Mayura also has a crush on him.This takes us down a journey where Alice and Mayura are pitted against each other. Mayura is the very pretty older sister and life pretty much revolves around her. However, Mayura doesn't come across as stuck up and at one point you can tell that in a way she doesn't think it's fair that her parents constantly doting on her prevents Alice from getting what she wants.Alice, on the other hand, isn't like Miaka or Aya from Watase's previous works. She's shy and quiet and is willing to do anything to please people including submerge her feelings for Kyo in order to allow Mayura a chance for happiness and to go out with a boy her sister sets her up with who tries to force himself on her.But what changes in the middle of all of this is that Alice comes across a rabbit out in the middle of traffic. After saving the rabbit, Kyo winds up saving her from the traffic. The rabbit leaves, but then Kyo becomes obsessed with finding the animal. What the rabbit has left behind was a bracelet. Shortly thereafter, Alice encounters the rabbit again, who transforms into an extremely cute rabbit girl and calls herself Nyozuka. She said that the symbol on Alice's bracelet is for the word "courage," the 19th of the sacred Lotis Words.According to Nyozuka, "Words can save people?or they can hurt people." When Alice's true feelings come rushing out her in a verbal attack on her sister, they have the power to make Mayura disappear. Now it's up to Alice to learn the Lotis Words and gain their power in order to find her sister and bring her back.This manga is in a way Yu Watase's reaction to the events of Sept. 11, 2001. Her author notes are very revealing about the origin of the series and how the power of words and communications drive events rather than violence. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of this series and seeing how this concept develops. As the youngest sister myself, I find Alice very easy to identify with and found Mayura and Kyo to be very endearing themselves. Like Alice, I've found myself in situations where I've said something I wish I could take back. I think many people have and that's where many people will be able to connect with this series. Highly recommended.

It's soooo cool!! It's about this shy girl named Alice and is not popular while her spoiled older sister is popular. One day she saves this rabbit and gets this braclet and her life goes crazy!! The rabbit is a rabbit guide to teach Alice how to become a lotis master and Kyo (her CRUSH) is one TOO!! I read the second and third book and when I read the 3rd book, I wanna read the next and next and next!!! Reading manga books is my hobbie!! I hoope that there are more books like Alice 19th out there!!!

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!

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!!

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.

Alice 19th is really a great book.Its full of action , romance, and of course comedy , but what i really love about it is that it show that no matter how scary things are you always have to have courage and really thats what i like about this book. Yuu Watase is a great artiest and writer.So if your looking for a great manga to read this would be it.

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.

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 ^^

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.

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.
