Pandora Hearts

Pandora Hearts

On the eve of nobleman Oz Bezarius's fifteenth birthday, he and his loved ones gather to celebrate in a coming-of-age ceremony. But after Oz steps under a long-stopped clock and the hands finally move once more - thus fulfilling a mysterious prophecy - he is violently thrown into the legendary prison known as the Abyss by three cloaked intruders. Existing in another dimension, the Abyss is home to lifeforms born within its walls known as Chains; these beings can only live in the real world if they make contracts with humans, binding their power to the person's body. However, there's a catch - in time, the human will be overcome by the Chain's power and then thrown into the deepest level of the Abyss. When Oz wakes up in the Abyss he is quickly attacked by hungry Chains, only to be saved by one named Alice - a Chain who appeared just before he was thrown into the prison. Together, the two make a contract and return to the real world, where they are enlisted into the Pandora organization - a group researching both the Abyss and the trio that threw Oz into it. Along with members of Pandora, the duo searches to find Alice's lost memory fragments that are scattered throughout the world, to discover the secrets of the Abyss, and to determine if there's a way their contract can be broken without killing either Oz or Alice.

Pandora Hearts and Alice in the Country of Hearts play on the Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass theme in original ways. Without being retellings of the story proper these manga both draw elements from the Lewis Carroll story to craft their own universes. In Alice the shout-outs are integral to the very concept while Pandora relates to the novels in a less direct way that is mostly just aesthetic. There is plenty of adventure to both and take advantage of Wonderland's surreal atmosphere to further the plot.

f you liked Are You Alice ?, you'll like Heart No Kuni No Alice and vice versa. Both are inspired by Alice In Wonderland. Both Alice have their own goal to reach to get out of Wonderland. But if the first one is taking the dark path, the second one may seem lighter at first, but if you take a close look at it, it's also dark.

Pretear

Pretear

Himeno is a high school freshman who's having trouble adjusting to the lifestyle of the very rich. Her father Kaoru is a one-time famous author of young girls' novels. One of his greatest fans was Natsue, a wealthy woman who liked Kaoru so much that she snatched him up from the rundown apartment and married him! But Himeno's life is far from rosy. Her dad tends to take the side of Natsue rather than her, and Natsue's two daughters from a previous marriage aren't very fond of their new stepsister. One day, Himeno takes a shortcut to school and meets a young boy. When she takes the boy's hand, she's transported to a fantasy world that lies on the brink of extinction. And the one person that can stop it is the girl called "Pretear."

In both stories a girl ends up getting caughtin strange circumstances involving a group of men who are typically bishounen (pretty boys) and some younger male characters. Both are also based on old fairy tales. Snow White with Pretear and Alice in Wonderland for Alice in the Country of Hearts.

If you like reverse harem shoujo manga based on Alice in Wonderland, you'll want to read Heart no Kuni no Alice.

In Shiro Ari and Heart no Kuni no Alice, the heroine doesn't exactly have a perfect life at home, feeling like she doesn't belong. Concerned about her happiness, her admirer forcefully plucks her from her world and into a fantasy world of faceless/nameless NPCs as second-rate citizens and named major players involved in an ongoing turf war where things are done backwards or illogically. Insane ikemen characters from Alice in Wonderland, like a mysterious man with long black hair and a pleasantly smiling sadist, are at first hostile and then intrigued by her status as a foreigner in the country she's fallen into.  

Life and death are treated differently here with named characters who age slowly in Shiro Ari's Mirror land and lifespans determined by one's clock heart in Heart no Kuni no Alice's Wonderland. The sad thing is how named characters can be relegated to nameless status if they lose the game in Shiro Ari and how everyone's role is replacable in Heart no Kuni no Alice. The heroine is like no other in this strange country as she cares about preserving the lives of even the faceless/nameless. Though she was threatened with a gun pointed to her face when she first arrived, the citizens of the country fall for her over time.

As an outsider and neutral party, the heroine is in an important position to lend help to either side win the game. She becomes more involved in this conflict as she tries to find a way to get out of the world she's stuck in and back to her own.  Both Shiro Ari and Heart no Kuni no Alice have a male yandere (or two) and lots of crazy gun fights and wandering around lost in the weird Wonderland forest.
