Both of them are quasi-homages to Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and both have the same feel to them--somewhat funny comedy mixed with twisted storytelling and artwork. Although neither is an adult manga (in the hentai sense), they take even darker journeys down the rabbit hole than Carroll's story does. Plus, anyone who wants beautiful bishounen and pretty artwork should check these out. Despite the fact that neither manga is identical to the other, the tones are similar enough that this is an easy recommendation.
