Holly's manga review: 'Alice: Love Labyrinth of Thorns'

See also



“Alice in the Country of Hearts: Love Labyrinth of Thorns” is a manga based on the visual novel by Quin Rose. Alice lives in the Clock Tower with Julius, the role player who fixes broken clocks. Romantic feelings are developing between them, but they don’t know how to express them. Nightmare and Ace decide to help them out by kidnapping Alice, so that Julius can rescue her. Will their insane plan work?

This manga is for those readers who love the idea of Alice and Julius as a couple, but wanted the story to have more action. The plot is actually different enough not to feel like a cheap rehash of “The Clockmaker’s Tale”. Although the couple should have been a bit more harsh in scolding Nightmare and Ace for the plot, as they did kidnap Alice, no matter how well intentioned they were. Honolulu Quin Rose fans may like this manga.
