As an avid manga reader there has been not very many times that I have come across a otome game(japanese dating game) based manga that has been completely and utterly wonderful.
I have just finished the 5th Alice in the country of hearts volume and every single one the plot gets better and better. Alice is not your typical Alice. She is a strong character who makes her own choices. Surrounded by good looking men, she doesn't swoon and blush 24/7. It makes for a refreshing change.
The artwork is equally great. The mangaka and illustrator have worked together to make each character unique. They are loosely based on the original Alice in Wonderland characters and you get excited as you meet each one. I was continuously wondering “What does the Cheshire Cat look like?!” and then “Is that the mad hatter?!” Each has a name that also brings about laughs. They are quite ironic…you'll know when you read it XP A thoroughly good series and I can't wait for the next one.
