This bastard Vincent looks a lot like Jack. He wears earrings too, and his hair is long. I think, he's actually trying to look like him.

See the resemblance? All Vince needs to do is braid his hair, and he'll be like Jack's little brother.

I'm still looking at these covers. Most of the characters are held by chains, but Vincent here doesn't look like he is. It's behind him. And it's broken. I guess it could be tied to his other hand... but compared to the other characters, he's not very... chain
Really, I can't believe how well Pandora Hearts progresses from volume to volume. I expected the story to start dwindling a little at this point from lack of character development or poor interaction with others, but really everything keeps building up to create a phenomenal plot with meaningful and wonderfully built characters.

Although there was some things in this volume that weren't revealed that I would have liked to see, there was plenty of character development and plot structure revealed

"'re fine just the way you are...!"

Volume 5 slows down to throw some information at you, with shocking revelations. Very solid read, but not as powerful as previous volumes.

We learn about what Alice erased her memories to hide, who Gilbert and Vincent truly are, and that Vincent has some dark secrets.

Oz develops a lot. We see that he truly cares about Alice. Something about her strikes him, and makes him want to keep her smiling. Alice herself has lived a hard life, and now that O

Oooooooh, so Cheshire was Alice's cat? (view spoiler)

This was an interesting volume. Break is growing on me all the time, and I am really curious as to what the relationship between him and Sharon is. They seem very attached to one another.

Also, I did observe that Vincent has a broken chain on the cover, whereas Gil, Sharon, Break, and Oz all have connected chains on their covers. I remembe
2.5 aha moments.

I am actually writing up a list of characters and how they relate to one another. I've done this with one other book/series. ONE. But hey, I think it's helping out a small bit.

So, once again, I find myself mimicking Oz.

"!!! I don't...understand anything yet! About Alice. About the tragedy of Sablier. And...about the identity of that man! I don't want to end without understanding any of that!"

But besides that, most of which I have a better idea of now that I've read a f
This series is just too confusing. I watched the entire anime series and still don't fully get what's happening. Giving up on this series.

First of all, love the cover of Vincent on this fifth volume. I think it's very telling that so far he is the only character portrayed with a broken chain. This makes me all the more curious to find out more about him. All of the covers in this series have been stunning. The beautifully ornate costumes and intricate detail reminds me of the artwork in Black Butler. My favorite covers so far are the second, third, and fifth volumes.

After the adrenaline-inducing cliffha
Oh my word...
Jun Mochizuki writes like my sister does. Constant twists and drama, and not in a bad way. The story is meant to be that way. One gets too used to shonen manga where you finish a volume and find yourself weeping, "NOTHING HAPPENED!". Not so here! I have been excited by each and every volume, and each and every page. Not to say that sometimes it isn't because it's a funny or cute moment, because there are plenty of these.
Ok... getting farther into the story now... The twists are beco

One of my very good friends recommended this manga series to me, and ever since I began reading it a few months ago I am completely hooked. I think that the story so far is very interesting and after reading the 5th volume I am so intruiged to find out what will happen next (especially with Vincent!!!). The series also has beautiful art and characters designs. That alone makes it worth it. The interesting story makes it even better. I can't wait to get my hands on the next volume to see what's g ...more

While still in another dimension, Break deals with Cheshire since they have a history together, it seems. And Oz looks for Alice and learns a lot more than he should about a certain tragedy, who the mysterious yet familiar looking guy is and lastly Alice. Well, things got kind a crazy for Oz. So much happens in this volume, moving the story forward with some interesting twists and turns. Love this series.
*Queen Diva*
It was a while between reading the 4th and 5th volume so I couldn't entirely remember what was happening :-p And then a bit of it at the end was confusing. So I felt a little lost while reading this volume, but I still enjoyed it. I love that Break is the Mad Hatter because he kills me. I love him! I also really like Jack (he is sooooo cute! LOL)

I was also super *heart eyes/fan girl squee* when Oz was all "I'll save you Alice" and all cutesie and whatnot. Alice is rad. Her and Break are definite
And the plot thickens! I can't believe some of the things that happened in this volume and my sister says it only gets more and more amazing! Jack is pretty amazing and the whole thing with Vincent!!!!! Ah! I can't wait to continue!

The whole revamping of Alice in Wonderland into a dark and twisted manga following a Boy named Oz and an chain named Alice (B Rabbit) definitely caught my eye when searching for a new manga to read. The art work is astounding and I fell in love from page one. Not just that, but the chilling mystery behind Oz and what he is truly guilty of does peck at my skin, the anticipation of knowing the secret haunts me every time I read :) A truly
Good book, nice drawings. I don't recommend it for people who are sensitive because it has violence in it and deaths, et cetera.
If you told me to choose a favorite character, I wouldn't be able to. They're ALL my favorite character.
You know what would be awesome and make my life complete?
Some Oz and Alice romance.
I would really like to send a letter of appreciation to Jun for this WONDERFUL manga series, but I don't know Japanese, and I think the translator or someone would get it and then promptly throw away my precious letter. And then take it out of the trash and rip it to shreds to use as confetti for Jun because she
Cada vez engancha más... ah, y creo que ya sé quién es la reina de corazones.

In which Vincent is a flaming bag of bad words and Jack rears his confusing head once more. Was anyone else angry for no particular reason after reading this? Or was it just me? Seeing Alice die AGAIN made me happy though, (I'm partly curious how many times shell die by the end in which Jun says "Oh! Haha! Fooled you! She's not really dead yet...") anyway it's-like always-a wonderful book full of twisted not-all-the-way-wonderland fun!

Uh oh... no! Don't let it be so! This gets deeper and scarier! So many shocking moments that I think my brain is going to explode! Again: a tad hard to follow at times but it always takes some time to explain things thoroughly for me to understand. Can't wait to get more of the series!
Au moment où je me dis que ça va commencer à se ralentir un peu, ça devient encore plus intéressant avec l'apparition de Jack, cet étrange jeune homme aperçu auparavant ! L'histoire semble être bien plus compliquée que ce je le pensais.. Affaire à suivre (avec le tome 6 ^^) ! :D
[Ch. 19-22:]

Oz saving Alice was very sweet. (:

Jack possessing Oz's body was very weird. o_O
I had a bad feeling from Vincent from the start but I wonder what he has to do with the events from 100 years ago?
Derrick Bjorklund
there was so many plot twists and interesting setups that i found it sometimes hard to keep up but never the less i enjoyed this part in the series.
Can we talk about Gilbert on the fainting couch in an actual swoon? Because that was hilarious.

Ich hasse es, dass die Bände immer so verdammt schnell ausgelesen sind xD
