I ran across Alice no Himegoto in my research on Alice in Wonderland based manga and anime. I'm no stranger to Hentai, but loli (which this is) isn't my area. I'm going to try to put that aside for this review for the most part.
The story was fairly well done for a parody of Alice in Wonderland. It's creative in its execution, beginning in media res and returning to the beginning scene once it's explained how she ended up there. That was a good hook. She has a mission to complete and that helps push her along through this Wonderland. There are some creative sex scenes one really doesn't expect. Anthromorphic pigs, doorknobs that need to be pleasured, and a sex scene in which the whole of the Mad Tea Party mix a cake using Alice as the bowl. So I give it points for creativity.
I thought the art was well done. I unfortunately don't have much to say on it, but it was good. I've seen a lot better and I've seen a lot worse. It's a typical level for hentai. It has a few colored pages which are nice.
I thought the characters were well done even though there was a base off which to work for most of them. Alice was your typical protagonist for this sort of work. But that she had motivation to keep moving through this world where she was getting screwed around every corner was nice.
I didn't enjoy this very much myself. I'm not a fan of loli, so this accounts for the vast majority of my dislike. But putting aside that note, trying to pretend she's older, it was well executed and I did enjoy the creativity and the fun aspect of it. It's not my cup of tea, but if you enjoy loli, I do recommend this. It's a fun concept.
Whether or not you will like this will fully depend on whether or not you enjoy loli. Some of the other fetishes addressed that the reader should be aware of are: inflation of breasts, milking fetish, light bdsm, girlxgirl, anthromorphic pigs, food, and rape which is addressed lightly. I don't enjoy things that include rape which affected my enjoyment rating as well. The rape in this story is glossed over. Alice isn't traumatized by it in the least, so it's like it wasn't actually rape. This is a real mood killer for me, because I don't like rape in any form in my hentai. It might not be enjoyable for someone who does like rape in hentai, because it's not emphasized, as I've seen some complain about such a thing before. It's one of those things you have to judge for yourself.
It goes about all of this in a light-hearted and fun manner, so if you're the type of person who can get over things they don't usually like, it might be an interesting read for you as well. Overall, I think I have to say, that the author's approach to the story and the art make this a decent manga despite fetishes and preferences. read more
