Description
From Yen Press:

The air of celebration surrounding fifteen-year-old Oz Vessaliusís coming-of-age ceremony quickly turns to horror when he is condemned for a sin about which he knows nothing. He is thrown into an eternal prison known as the Abyss, from which there is no escape. There, he meets a young girl named Alice, who is not what she seems. Now that the relentless cogs of fate have begun to turn, will they lead only to crushing despair for Oz, or is there some shred of hope for him to grasp on to?

Mochizuki Jun continues to surprise me

Having just completed The Hound of the Baskervilles, a Sherlock Holmes novella, I can conclude that not only is Pandora Hearts filled to the brim with Alice in Wonderland references, but the occasional Sherlock Holmes reference as well.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Lily's chain Bandersnatch quite reminds me of the hound itself, especially due to the hound's desire to attack throats. Just as well, there are parallels to the girl locked away in the tower, and the most obvious, the use of the name Baskerville.
It's so wonderful to see references to classics in manga.

Mochizuki Jun also excels at plot twists and cliff hangers, and her art is stunning to boot.

This manga is by far one of my most favorites if not favorite all together! I find it impossible to lose interest in this manga, its characters, plot (Though complicated) and art are all truly amazing. I find the characters an immensely big part of this manga, it revolves about them, and almost each and everyone of the characters introduced have a story. There personality are all so different and the author did well to express this. The art is beautiful, and a big inspiration for my own art. The expressions and moods are captured so well is unreal. The plot, now, this manga is definitely not for everyone. The plot is complex, very complex, and it takes a lot of time, patience and a lot of attention to detail to work it out but it is definitely a one of a kind and a interesting plot none the less. This one event in the past has so much too it, and creates so many obstacles for the characters, keeps the readers interested, and we all want to know what really happened. Definitely a manga that keep you interested.

Right, if you haven't read this manga yet and are thinking about it, there are a few things you could do with knowing about:

Complex plot: As I have stated, this manga isn't for everyone, and many people find the plot too complicated or crowded. If you can handle a mysterious and twisting plot, love surprises and have the patience to work out the mysteries, this will not bother you, only interest you more!

Gore: This manga contains quite a lot of blood, so if your not one for gore, you might not want to read it.

Other than that, its a very enjoyable manga, or if you are like me and many others, its one of the best and deserves to be in the top 10!

My favorite manga ever

I cannot fully express my obsession over the brilliance that is Pandora Hearts. I am forever indebted to Mochizuki-sensei and my friend who had recommended this series to me.

Thus far, I've yet to find another manga with a similar art style to Mochizuki-sensei's. Her character designs are very distinguishable and show off the characters' personalities well. The way Mochizuki-sensei depicts the Victorian aged era styled backgrounds and settings are utterly gorgeous and breathtaking. Her sceneries, both on Earth and in other dimensions are perfectly made and beautiful.

The storyline has yet to disappoint me! Every chapter reveals a new surprise, and the haunting mystery of it all just grips me and makes me want more. Chapter updates can't come soon enough! Anyway, Mochizuki-sensei weaves the story so skillfully that it's almost impossible to just stop at the middle of it. The plot, though confusing at first, comes together in later chapters. I think that once you get a hang of it, you'll fully enjoy this series. Also, this series has lots of reference to Alice in Wonderland, through names and places. Because of this, I had a spark of reinterest in Lewis Carrol. Just a little info I wanted to throw in.

Okay, now my favorite part: characters. Oh, the story seems to mostly owe its awesomeness to it's fantastic characters! I think over 50% of it's awesomeness is due to how Mochizuki-sensei created all the characters. They all have such intense, gripping backgrounds that create who they are and the way they affect the story. I love it. It's really hard to pick just one favorite character, but I'm always rooting for Cheshire!

So, like I said, I couldn't express my amazement and fangirlness to this series. Highly recommended, so check it out!

I agree with you vietangelix, if not because what my brother told me, I would have skipped this series. Watched the anime first and it turned out to be good, I finished ep 1-17 in just two days. Haven't watched ep 18 and the others yet.
Shonen manga? This surely become some revolution in shonen genre, not just the typical battle-become strong-friendship shonen.

This is the best manga ever! I have read a lot of mangas (more than 100!) and this is my favorite one... I love Vincent, Gil, Break and the 99% of the cast, even the protagonist (Oz) which is extremely rare because I hate heros! (well, he is not a conventional hero...)

People you NEED to read this manga before you die.

BUT RESPECT ! This is the best manga i've ever read.

In summary: Mysterious twists and turns plot, Light hearted moments are extremely beautiful, All characters have their story to tell, The main character isn't the only important guy, Art is fabulous.

Plot: Super, Keeps you engaged, Very mysterious And has lots of details but if you can follow it's a very interesting experience and with every twist and turn it's all "OHH MY GOD!?! I THOUGHT--" And also, ALL the characters are somehow involved in the main plot, I hate kuroshitsuji because they don't give other characters time to shine, And only the main characters are truly important, In Pandora hearts ALL the characters are very important, Without one, Everything won't exist. There're no "Extra, not so important". 10/10

Art: Just look at that thumbnail, Does it look bad to you? Doesn't for me, It's so beautiful. smile 10/10

Characters: SO. AMAZING. You know how in bleach and naruto the main character is better in everything? and they don't give space for other aspects of all the characters? Well pandora hearts does this, Every character is unique, Each have their uniqueness, weaknesses and stories to tell, You can't say "-- is better than --" because all of them are different and good in their own way ! 10/10

RECOMMENDED ! biggrin (I really want to make this review realistic by varying the ratings, but i just can't find one fault even if i try !)

I mean first of all the plot is just fascinating, unpredictable, mysterious, and just great! All the character trying to understand the true history of this one event that will explain who they are and why they are who they are. The emotions, action, and reasons for their actions is interesting in of itself, I'm never disappointed thinking, oh this is so typical because each one is different and unexpected! But at the same time, as soon as you do now it, so much makes sense. The author is great at building suspense and mystery, but also good at explaining a lot while at the same time creating new questions that need to be answered! Then the art is just amazing! I can't think of one thing that annoys me, i don't even mind that its not heavy on romance because the relationship she's created between alice and oz shows how much they care for each other in their actions and expressions, its much deeper and understandable than most rushed romances i've seen. I recommned this 100% And i wish i could give it an thousand out of 10, but the website won't let me...Anyway, I love it and want to own all the books so that i can read them over again if i want to!~ Can't wait for the next chapter~

I wonder why I skipped this manga when I first saw it.
But when I saw it again I decided to start it and the manga turned out pretty good. So this is one of the manga you shouldn't skipped out on. I'm not going to give it a rating until the end though biggrin
@Kujika:
It doesn't describe the art, it's the demographic it belongs to.
Like Shounen (means "boy") is manga marketed toward boys.
Josei (means ladies) is manga marketed toward older women..and etc. But anyone can still like read those demographics.

At his coming-of-age ceremony, however, everything changes. For no reason that he can discern, he is cast into the prison known as the Abyss, only to be saved by a chain known as Alice, the bloodstained black rabbit. Why was he cast into Abyss, how does Alice factor into it all, and what does the organization known as Pandora want with him...?
