Alice in the Country of Hearts, Vol. 3
Alice in the Country of Hearts, Vol. 3 - QuinRose I was liking this series so much and right at the end it's decided that Blood is going to override whatever choice Alice made for herself and force her to do what he wants. Including sexually assaulting her again. This is not OK. She made her choice and they all should abide by it. But no, Fedorabro has to go force her of course because what is an otome game (and a manga based on an otome game) without the main character becoming a doormat at least once.

Alice in the Country of Hearts, Vol. 2
Alice in the Country of Hearts, Vol. 2 - QuinRose I really like that Alice continues to be with Julius rather than want to be with any of the other characters. Especially Dupre.
This volume however contains some sexual assault when both Ace and Boris want to listen to Alice's heart after she told them no.

I'm starting Alice in the Country of: A couple of the volumes in this series were on sale at BAM. Since I'm a fan of all things Alice in Wonderland I figured hell yes. Unfortunately the manga I picked up were much later in this series. Heres to starting from the beginning

Alice in the Country of Hearts, Vol. 1
Alice in the Country of Hearts, Vol. 1 - QuinRose,Beni Axia Conrad,Soumei Hoshino Re-reading the Yen press Omnibus edition really reiterates the idea that women are supposed to like men that won't take no for an answer and that's.... just messed up. You can argue that the whole world Alice is in is messed up as well, but considering this is based on an otome game :x It's really sending a fucked up message.

Alice in the Country of Clover: Ace of Hearts (one-shot) story by QuinRose, art by Mamenosuke Fujimaru, translated by Angela Liu
Alice in the Country of Clover: Ace of Hearts - QuinRose,Mamenosuke Fujimaru

After the move from the Country of Hearts to the Country of Clover happens, Ace finds himself pushed out of his chosen role as Julius's helper. Now he's just Vivaldi's knight, a role he hates. Alice wants to help him, but she's also nervous around him, because he keeps coming on weirdly strong. She's also upset, because he thinks the only reason she doesn't push him away is because she's kind and friendly to everyone, not because he's someone special to her. However, in the end she realizes she loves him. The volume also includes three Crimson Empire shorts: one with Prince Edvard, one with Bryon and a pregnancy scare, and a humorous one with Marshall.

This volume began just before the move to the Country of Clover – I was so confused when Julius showed up at the beginning, because I thought the story was already in Clover. We get a bit more detail about Pierce – he acts as the Hatter Family's “cleaner,” retrieving and hiding clocks so that Ace can't retrieve them, which of course puts him at odds with Ace.

Out of all the volumes I read during my Alice in the Country of binge, this one was my least favorite. It could have been a fascinating exploration of Ace, the only role holder who dealt with the constraints of Wonderland by choosing a role for himself. Instead, QuinRose gave readers an incredibly discomfiting romance with a guy Alice halfway expected might kill her (and who she would have let do it!). I'd have preferred seeing Alice end up with Gray, who kept warning her away from Ace, or Vivaldi, who even ended up in her bed at one point.
