Alice 19th

Alice Seno is a plain and ordinary fifteen-year-old girl, and that's exactly her problem. Perpetually overshadowed by her beautiful and popular older sister Mayura, Alice grows to resent her sister for being so perfect. But when Alice finds a rabbit while crossing the street one day, things change forever. The rabbit turns out to be a magical scout named Nyozeka who claims that Alice is a Lotis Master - a person capable of harnessing the power of words to enter people's hearts and dispel the darkness within. However, Alice accidentally uses this new power on Mayura, and she vanishes. Now, Alice must join forces with her handsome upperclassman Kyou and Lotis Master Frey to rescue Mayura and rid the world of the dark power of the Maram Words.

What a day to review a story that inspired me a bit...  Being a younger sibling myself, I found some reason to really feel sympathy with the main character.  Now, without further ado...  Story: The general story of Alice 19th I believe is it's strongest asset.  The story of a shadowed sibling who doesn't know the power of her own decisions is a very powerful one.  The main story progresses well enough until volume 5.  Then, all of the sudden, we go into the equivalent of a boss rush in a video game.  There was a lot of other things that could have been done.  However, it did pace enough to get a satisfying conclusion.  I simply wish there had been another volume or two or some plot lines thrown out. Characters: The plot thrives on characters.  And quite a few get a good amount of development.  Particularly the love triangle of Alice, Kyou and Mayura. The main issue coimes from the people who don't get a lot.  Of the side characters, only a few really got enough for me to be satisfied.  Oishi, Kazuki, and various other characters who aren't given a ton of time devoted to them are done well enough.  However, the other Lotis Users and Maram Masters are...  Well, kind of neglected.  For all the shoving in...  Frei gets about as much development as Kyou possibly.  Even then, he gets it all around the time Kyou does, which overshadows the point of it.  Chris and the other Lotis masters are...  Given light development?  Chris probably gets the most between the three that you get going to the final battle along with the main characters.  Still, I kind of wish there was more purpose to them beyond just being there as fodder at some point. Overall, the characters could have used a bit more balancing and maybe removing a few completely. Art: It's well done and the jokes aren't that low in quality.  I really can't judge much on it. Overall: I like this story and manga.  So much that I got my own copy and have made a few fanfictions on it.  The story is a satisfying journey, but it could have been much more.
