Alice in Murderland 2

Alice in Murderland, vol. 2

To its heir, the illustrious Kuonji estate promises eternal life. The price the heir must pay for this sublime honor, however, is a pound of flesh – that of his or her brothers and sisters and extracted by his or her own hands…

The prospect of having to fight her beloved elder sister “Red Riding Hood” Claire to the death sends Stella into a dizzying spiral of despair. And then, out comes her other self, “Bloody Alice,” whispering in her ear: “This is our fate!” As the White Rabbit and Zeno, her first love, watch over the battle-worn Stella, what is it that creeps ever nearer to her and her destiny…?

KHNM 1

Kiss Him, Not Me!, vol. 1 **New Series**

Hi there! My name is Serinuma Kae. I’m the kind of girl who loves checking out boys and fantasizing about them getting friendly (and more) with each other – I’m what you might call a fujoshi. One day, my beloved (yes, he’s an anime character) died, and the shock of it all was more than I could have ever prepared for! My grief over his passing resulted in some ridiculous weight-loss!

And you won’t believe what happened next! Soon after my change, the four most divinely gorgeous boys in my school asked me out on dates! I accepted them all, and you’d think I’d be happy with my sudden popularity, but the truth is, my heart only yearns for a prince to be next to his prince. Ahh, yes, boys, I’d much prefer that you turn your affections elsewhere and kiss him, not me!

  • Oooh I’ve read some of Horimiya and liked it! It does feel like “will go on forever because of the simple premise” but the chapters I read were fun!

  • Wow, this month is great! Kamisama, LDK, QQ Sweeper, Horimiya and Library wars!! Going to have to save up ahaha. I’m curious about Alie in Murderland. Have you read it?

    • No, I haven’t. Not going near anything Alice in Wonderland themed. But I have a friend who swears by anything Yuki Kaoru – so it might be worth a shot.

      • Lol what about Pandora Hearts? The theme is only present once and the rest is about the budding relationship and tragedy between the characters. I usually dislike Alice themed stuff too but I’m more open to it since I love Pandora Hearts so much:)

        • I bought the first volume of Pandora Hearts and never read it. :/
