Description
From Yen Press:

The air of celebration surrounding fifteen-year-old Oz Vessalius’s 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?

LOVE IT! WHERE HAS IT BEEN ALL MY LIFE

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~

If you had to pick any manga book to read I would tell you to read Pandora Hearts. It is one of the best books I have ever read. I want every single book that is made for Pandora Hearts, because thats how good it is!

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.

I started Pandora Heart by watching the anime. I was confused and couldn't grasp what was happening. However, as I start reading the manga, I've come to a better understanding. I really like how this manga is complicated and always keeps the readers in suspension. It is very unique without those heroes/superheroes thing. The 'past' is what keeps the story juicy. Leaking pieces of information at a time and then finally revealing the pieced puzzle definitely make this manga a must try.

Pandora Hearts never fails to surprise me with its plot twists and surprises. I was able to empathize and comprehend many of the characters, many of whom are likeable. The art wasn't horrible, though it could use some brushups. When I first picked up this manga, it was hard to understand because of the concepts of chains, contractors, etc, but after reading more chapters, I began to get a grasp of the terminology. If you're still confused, Wikipedia provides a good explanation of these terms.
Overall, a great and thrilling read.

This is a masterpiece. Not because the art is pretty, or because of the characters. Its the plot. the way the author keeps trolling us is amazing. You never expect such trolling. so entertaining. Definitely the best Alice in wonderland based manga out there. I hope the author does not drag much in the future, although i love it, it would be disappointing.

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 usually don't write manga reviews but i loved this manga, and i still do! I bought vol 1 and 2, it's the only one I actually bought. The story is very interesting , at some point I didn't get the story anymore so I kinda lost interest but when I got past that, the story started to make sense again XD And I got into it all over again, I'm always waiting for new releases, the art is amazing and the updates are always constant. Also all the characters are different and the relationships are too depending the character.

Very interesting smile ,theres comedy, romance, fantasy, drama, friendship, theres all; I recommend it ^^

Quite good character development.
To tell the truth, the plot is quite well done. Mochizuki-sensei does quite a good job in tying together the plot.
However, the characters are most definitely the strong point of this series. The female lead is especially attractive.
Even supporting characters are well developed, although Oz seems to be a little too carefree, considering his situation. However, nothing is too out of place.
