It was okay but kinda confusing
I was expecting some...plausible answers to some stuff in this story....the ending was kinda rushed and as everyone has said already, there was a bunch of questions that were not answered. I was confused...yet I didn't hate the manga. I found it entertaining how they all would pull out their weapons randomly, and Alice's personality is not annoying, I actually liked her as well as the queen.

But overall, I wish they could have explained a bit more on the forgotten memories, Alice's reality life, whether it was a dream or not. Also, there should have been a teensie bit more romance :P
I give it a 7/10.
I expected it to be better. It was cute and short, but I feel that they could have developed the characters more. It's OK. Its a cute story to lift your spirits or to write a fan fic about, but asides from that, not much more value.

A little more than just a harem...
This adaptation of Alice in Wonderland is a little less… friendly. With battling groups, people who do not care to kill, and everyone wanting to be with Alice, Alice has a little bit more to worry about as she tries desperately to get home. The best part of this manga probably was the mysteries that were intertwined with the story, and the many different emotions the people of the Kingdom of Hearts felt toward Alice.
Plot- The plot was pretty good, well paced and with enough mystery and intrigue to keep you waiting for the next chapter. However, the story never took on an urgent tone, while Alice was trying to get back to her own world she just took it at a pace, and the story never seemed very edge of the seat story because of this.
Characters- Alice is a nice variation from the Alice in Alice in Wonderland, she is not afraid to fight back; she is feisty, has a bit of a temper and is sarcastic. There are a host of other characters, mainly males, who all have their own good and bad traits. Of all the males there’s sure to be AT LEAST one that you can’t help but love!
Art- The art was not anything special, not too beautiful or anything but it wasn’t terrible either. It was nice art that fit the story well.
Other- I felt the ending was… a bit anti-climatic and even a little rushed. I was a little disappointed by the ending, while it was good and I was fine with the ending couple (though maybe someone will hate the ending because of the ending couple!). There were some mysteries brought up
Spoiler (highlight to view)
What happened to Alice’s sister? Obviously something! And what was this the Joker? There were a few characters who could have been explained a bit better…
I’m sure since this is based on an otome game there might be more information on these mysteries, however I’m NEVER going to play the game so I’ll never know! Though the untold mysteries aren’t really that necessary to tell and if you’re just reading the story for the harem or for the bishies or for the romance it doesn’t matter at all. But the story has some mystery and intrigue and interesting moral standards that are brought to question for those who want a little bit more in their story.
8/10- Was good

I loved this manga. I'm a sucker for Alice in Wonderland stuff to begin with but ive read and watch so much that i'm starting to get bored with it all. however, this manga was awesome. the whole thing was just fun to read and i just wanted to see who Alice would end up with in the end. Loved it!
I gave this manga a try, since everyone was saying how great it was. I really had my hopes high and I ended up truly disappointed after finish this. It had everything to be a great manga: mistery, that bit of romance that makes us go "awww", fantasy, drama... It started really great. Not long after that, it turned out a bit confusing. But I continued reading. Even though I was confused, I really hoped to get my answers. I finished reading it yesterday and it didn't feel like a real ending... I got a few answers, but there was still a LOT to be answered. And it ended just like that. How disappointing... The art is beautiful, the characters are lovable, the plot had everything to make this one of the best shoujos that I'd ever read in my life. Till I read the ending and the whole story felt incomplete. Still, I give this somewhat of a good rating thanks to every little thing that I liked about it. I didn't give it a better rating thanks to that ending and my eternal unanswered questions.
its a breath of fresh air in the shoujo world. although the relationships in this manga is nothing new however the overall plot story of this manga is i guess its safe to say that it's something that has never been done before. to come up with something like this takes pure genius because alot of things have already been done in the shoujo fantasy genre that most of the mangas out there are a recycled better version of something done before. the heroine has her flaws but its not one of those flaws that'll get on ur nerves but at the same time she's aware that she makes mistakes. in other words she has different dimesions to her character in a good way however some of you might find the manga's focus on the human psyche a bit too much. but that's what this manga is all about. its a look at the human psyche with a touch of fantasy

Too much happening
The author tries to focus on everyone's relationship and it's starting to get on my nerves...at first I liked this manga, but too much is happening. I just hope this manga won't drag on.
i never review a manga without reading more than one volume but i just had to comment on this one. this series blew me AWAY! the plot is wonderfully developed so that you don't just read about hot guys. i can't even guess what's going to happen next and i normally have pretty plausible theories! this is a definite go for people who want something different from the normal shojo genre.
A shoujo that's NOT completely generic (!!!)
Well, this "comment" ended up being a bit longer than I intended...
I'm usually in the habit of looking at the onemanga page and just selecting some random manga and then reading it for (usually just a few) hours. Usually, I find shoujos the most relaxing to follow, because they usually have the same trite plots, female protagonists, male bishies, etc (so I don't get any pleasant or unpleasant surprises, because I've seen it all before)... and what can I say, I'm a fan of the romance genre, and shoujos always include it (along with (melo)drama and all that other jazz). So, I look at this fantasy shoujo, read something about some bishie and a harem and go "oh great, let's read another one of these."
But I have to say, this one has been somewhat of a pleasant surprise. I really, really thought that this would be an extremely generic shoujo, but the female protagonist, while still not being entirely original, is actually pretty enjoyable to follow. She doesn't get hung up on one thing too long (whether or not that's due to the story's pace or not is questionable), and while the main characters are pretty much predestined to be her harem, they're interesting in their own little ways nonetheless.
However, the real draw here isn't the characters (or the plot, which is almost always character-driven in shoujos anyway), in my opinion (because they're still a bit generic, though they do break the mold slightly). I would say what's really refreshing is the fantasy/psychology setting. Maybe it's because I like fantasy in general (and/or I've read so many fantasy shoujo mangas that basically had a worthless fantasy setting), but this one's setting is rather refreshing. It does make use of an old story but it's implemented in such a different way that it's actually more refreshing than if they made up some bogus random setting. It's interesting. As you discover more about the setting, you'll actually start thinking more about the setting's implications with regards to Alice's mind .. hence the psychological tag actually fits here, and it's used nicely. Maybe not 100% original, but it's solid.
Overall, this is a really good read. It's been a while since I can say I've actually enjoyed reading something (instead of just passing time with it), and this one was quite good. I just sincerely hope they can keep it up (just got done with the 12th chapter). Oh, and >>>> Alice is hot. <<<<
Entertaining so far
This is such a fun series. Strong heroine + a cast of lovable bishounens. Not usually what I look for in a manga but well it's kept me entertained/amused/interested so far and I can't really complain. Plot-wise, I can't really judge based on the chapters that have already been released but hmm... I have a feeling that something 'deep' is going to happen pretty soon. As for the art, well it's really very beautiful and complements the story well. (I mean it's a parody sort of and fantasy-based, so the nice light art suits it). I can't wait for the next chapter. I'm so fond of the rabbit (Peter White) in this story haha. Worth checking out if you asked me.
