Synopsis:

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.

Both are reimaginings of the classic fairy tale Alice in Wonderland.  They both take a darker view of the tale, and both are interesting reads.  If you like one, you'll probably like the other as well.

If you liked Are You Alice ?, you'll like Pandora Hearts and vice versa. Both are inspired by Alice In Wonderland and have twisted plots (both being rather dark stories). You'll also notice that their design is similar.

Black Butler

Black Butler
  • Vol: 18+; Ch: 91+
  • 2006 - ?

In Victorian England it is commonplace for the rich and wealthy to have a staff, led by a head butler, to run their households; the Phantomhive Estate is no different. The young and demanding Count Ciel Phantomhive, child owner of a toy company, lives in the grand countryside manor. Sebastian is his head butler, and the epitome of perfection; he effortlessly and gracefully completes his day-to day chores and fixes the countless mistakes of the other employees. However, whilst on the outside all seems prim and proper, a more sinister secret lies just beneath the surface. Sebastian is in fact a demon bound by a contract with the young count; he will loyally serve and fight for him in return for his soul.

 If you want to read some dark comedy style manga then Black Butler and Pandora Hearts are good books to read.  The supernatural undertones in both series come out shrouded in mystery and even some suspense.  There is also a pleasant old fashioned feeling in regards to the clothing that bring the series to life.

If you are looking for an awe inspiring display of female power, look no further than Pandora Hearts and Black God. The drama and suspense is ever thrilling as the young girls try to get the heroes to release their power.
