From Tokyopop:
Young Mikan runs away to Tokyo to follow her best friend, Hotaru, who has been enrolled in an exclusive, secretive private school for geniuses. But it turns out that Alice Academy is a lot more than meets the eye. If Mikan wants to stay by Hotaru's side, she has to both pass the strange "entrance exam" and face the even greater challenge of befriending her very odd new classmates. Whether it's Hotaru's gift for inventing gadgets, the cranky Natsume's fire-casting ability, or Professor Narumi's control of human pheromones, everyone at the school has some sort of special talent. But what ability, if any, does Mikan possess? Mikan is going to have to rely on her courage and spunk if she's going to stay in school, or even stay alive!

Good beginning

It was interesting in the beginning, and even until the recent .. I guess Arc. Right now, it is weirdly confusing, super fast and slow pace at the same time, the current story is just a mess. I really don't have much of any idea anymore of what is happening, and I am not sure I would care to at this point.

So, I give it props for being an odd story that is interesting to read up to a point, but I can't give it any higher after that.

At first, I don't have the intention of picking this up.... and for some reason, lately I'm having the mood of reading this =.= and yes... I read it... biggrin

This manga is certainly great. If you haven't picked this up, then go read it right now! smile
The storyline is indeed addictive and it 'hooks' you into the story. This story really stirs something in me when I'm reading through those text. Of course, not forgetting the comedy part, this manga INDEED made me laugh! Not in the sense of just "haha. that's funny. *continue reading*" but it's something like "HAHAHHA OMG, THAT'S HILARIOUS!!!*reads the same part again*"

biggrinbiggrin Highly Recommended.

I could go on and on about how amazing this manga is, but I don't feel like typing it all out bigrazz

Basically, I love it so much, that I re-read the whole dang thing (til the most recent chapters, of course) all over again this Winter Break! You can say that I have no life, or I just really really like this manga.

It makes me laugh, alot, and I love all of their facial expressions! At first, I didn't like how they were only 10 like alot of people, but then i did see how that if they were any older, it would've been like every other shoujo or whatever...teenagers are all the same, and all the other mangas in the world seems to be about teenagers (or adults...i guess) anyways.

Lastly, I would like to say, I love love love Natsume! He's soo awesome! Gosh, the cute parts of this manga always makes my heart flutter >< NatsumexMikan forever!!! The Time Traveling Arc is kinda boring (at least the second time around....) when you're reading it all at once. It was better to just read it as it came out.

Um..what else? I just love everything about it! The art, the characters, the plot, EVERYTHING >< It's definitely unique

I highly recommend this biggrin

one of the best children oriented manga i've read so far -- reminds me of Bokurano.

The characters are great; while the plot does cater to a child's stability it doesn't tread into a position where it looks forced either. The powers aspects are always a suspension of disbelief, but I really enjoy how the author has made the world quite a wide open place, where anything could be going on with alices'.

The interplay is where the manga shines.

I totally love this series. There are 121 chapters out so far, so you'll be busy enough waiting for the next one. 122 comes out on Nov. 5! biggrin DD It's not one of those manga series that you get hooked on and then no more chapters come out. It's really cute.

The main characters are 10/11 yrs old, but that's a good thing because not only do you get an outsider's look, it's also completely unbiased because the characters are so innocent. It's also great fun to watch the slow progression of romance. ^~^ (It's hilarious to see Luka/Ruka--his name gets a bit sketchy *sweat drop*-- and Natsume try to be romantic towards Mikan, because she's really dense.)

Besides that, though most of the main characters are 10 or 11, you also see main character in middle school and high school. It might bother some ppl that they're so young, but the characters all have really mature sides to them, so their age doesn't take away from the story at all (their age never bothered me). Besides, if they were teenagers I feel like it would be just another shoujo manga. It would be way to dramatic if they were. But they're not, so it's a nice fit. smile

There's a good aspect of humor, from Natsume's slightly perverted additude towards Mikan to Hotaru's inventions. Also, the facial expressions are hilarious! :3 (Especially Mikan's!)

Mikan's additude towards life and her friends is basically "never give up, because the sun is shining behind those clouds"... she is really loyal and sweet. (Though she can be a real RAWR kind of person if you provoke her. That's basically Natsume and anyone who thinks their better just because of their Alice. XD Or anyone who tries to hurt her friends.) Everyone in Mikan's homeroom class is really well bonded. Very sweet, though there is a bit of a dark side to the manga.

Great manga, I totally recommend it! (The anime veers off a bit but not really badly. If you want the anime, watch the subbed version. I don't like the voices in the dubbed, and it's nothing different besides the fact that it's in English.)

I totally love this manga.

I think that their age just makes the impact of what they have to go throu greater :3.

There are lots of characters, and each one of them is well thought out :3.
There's lots of mystery and darkness, but just as many funny parts ^-^ I think the story is really complete. The characters are so naive, yet have to expierence and have expierenced really terrifying stuff. I love the art, and there are some scenes that are like xD stuck in my mind. Like Ruka's and Pyo Pyo's. They just make me go LOL everytime i see one xD.

I really reccomend this : 3

okay i'm updating my review.
At first i loved this manga to pieces. I loved all the unique characters and the world that the mangaka created. Then at some point it started to get noticeably more dark toned and the humor vanished. I thought okay, its just story development. Yay! But then it seemed like the author was just trying to pack so many ideas in and then everything went downhill. The plot got messy, and extremely confusing. Also, the art very noticably declined. Trying to emphasize the seriousness and emotion of the characters does not mean making every character cry in each panel for 10 chapters straight.. Basically, she tried to hard to make it tragic. She should have stuck to the old Gakuen Alice which I deeply miss sad
And just another note-- i think its cute how its childhood love, but the things they do are too mature for their age therefore making it a bit unrealistic..They act like they are in at least middle school.
