Am I the only one that really misses this manga? Or that even remembers it? Danm for some reason I really loved it, it's a shame there will never be a second season the anime had some great songs.
To be honest my story with this manga was interesting, first I was vert obessive with it, then after Leo they went ro the past I lost interest.
Also it still bothers me MochiJun whitewashed Laice and Levy's relantionship.
I loved the shit out of this, it has a special place in my heart being the manga I've followed for the longest. We had at least one decent sized thread as a send off and that was it.
It was a shame how quickly threads died.
The plot was complicated but it was the opposite of a mess. I was always confused as fuck but things did make sense in the end.
Hell, even loose ends from the first few chapters were tied up. It was that well thought out.
Yeah for me it was the same, after I watched the anime and realized it wasn't going to have a second season I started reading the manga and oh boy how much I loved it. Maybe it was the combination of the art style and the alice in wonderland themes but it really is my favorite manga. I'm really looking forward for Jun's next work
Also the will of the abyss is my waifu
She's writing Vanitas no Carte now in case you didn't know. It's more Victorian-era steampunk but with vampires.
Nothing special so far but it's Jun so I'm expecting good things.
I love the shit out of the Victorian Era so I automatically liked the manga as well, considering that I like the drawing styles and characters too, especially Oz' and Alice's relationship.
But the manga suffered from this plotception syndrome or however you want to call it. Many longer series have that and it always destroys everything.
In the end it was just twist after twist and some characters were revealed to be someone else, only to be revealed to be someone else yet again later and in the end the series had characters with multiple personality disorders who are their own shadow who actually isn't even a human but a chain or some shit who actually was a stuffed animal once. Well you get my drift. That killed a lot of enjoyment.
I hope the next Jun series will have a more consistent and "simple" plot.
The first plot twists were great and unexpected, but yeah by the end it seemed like Jun was trying too hard to do that again and made things unnecessarily complicated. This didn't stop me from enjoying it just because of how much I loved the characters and the art style though.
I really need more Alice in the Wonderland inspired anime and manga to fill this void
Been a while since i've seen PH talked about. Feelsgoodman.jpg
The anime OST is based. Wish someone would fund a Hellsing OVA style remake.
>first I was vert obessive with it, then after Leo they went ro the past I lost interest
Same here. The whole arc around
Elliot's deathwas blowing my mind off, but after that it kinda went downhill for me. I liked that flashback arc, but after that it lost me completely. Overall I enjoyed the ride though.
I agree. There are just series that are made for Kajiura and PH was one of them. Same with some of the old Bee Train originals. SAO for example was never made for it, neither the characters nor the type of story fits Kajiura's themes that are better for mystical and dark fantasy stuff. The result was that the SAO OSTs were boring as hell.
I fucking loved this manga. It was weird because I remember how the art looked earlier on, and then how good it got a few years later. It was great watching her improve. I also liked Oz as a main character, I found him really endearing, but I actually wound up dropping it sometime during the long ass flashback updates. It started to drag after the big Jack reveal, and Oz being a stuffed animal, etc. Which was a shame because it was really engaging to begin with.
I see this with a lot of manga, not only from female authors. At least for plot heavy manga, could be that more females than men do this but I am not sure. Many manga by males, especially long seinen fantasy, tend to get some retarted genre switch at some point and either become a completely different series or die due to hiatuses or both. The third problem that usually happens with long manga series is a total lack of happening. I think everyone has already read some of those 20+ volumes long series that go fucking nowhere and eventually end without any clear conclusion. I agree with CLAMP though.
It has a great ending, you should pick it up again. And know that you don't have to wait a month for each chapter it is easier to keep track of the plot twists and shenanigans
I loved it but I wish there had been far more chapters focusing on past Sablier. It was my favorite part and it flies by in like 5 chapters.
Not him but I agree.
It might be because I am a nostalgia fag though. I love it when the story of a series deals with some far away past the characters are longing for, especially if they are about to find some destructive ways for regaining it and the MCs have to make a choice.
