Crimsom Shell was a good manga. Its alternative version of Pandora Hearts. Had all the characters from the original series. The plot excellent. Scences where great too.

This is a manga by the same author of "Pandora Hearts". It has excellent artwork, with loads of gorgeous illustrations of thorny roses curled around the main character's body. The story, however, while showing the plot complexity of "Pandora Hearts", it was a bit too complex and confusing for such a short work. I think it would've been better-suited to a longer work, and would have really liked to see the story continue. The characters were interesting, though most of them are like embryonic versions of the ones in her later series. There are however, no Alice in Wonderland references in this manga, apart from Shion's second name (Liddell), though perhaps the roses were a nod to it. This was in many ways a proto-"Pandora Hearts". It wasn't nearly as good, but still shows how Mochizuki's ideas for it developed.Overall, it was an enjoyable, beautiful read, worth buying even if just for the art, and especially if you are a fan of the author's other work.

Manga. I see the basis for most of the plot, characters, inspiration for " Pandora Hearts."

Good short story. The author's other work is better since it is longer.
