Dave Schaafsma
A twisted version (okay, not really a version, so far) or spin-off from Alice in Wonderland that is more nightmare than fun fantasy. The original does have a deep dark streak running through it, but this takes it farther, not for the little kids. I was tempted to say it reminded me of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids but then you'd be expecting laughs. Has a kind of punk or maybe even Mad Max kinda feel.

A girl wakes up to find she has shrunk and now cats and birds and well, everything else puts her in

I give this a 3.75. It was one weird book, but I liked it. Also this was my first ever manga.

“I'm afraid I can't explain myself, sir. Because I am not myself, you see?”

Regardless of the cover (or my quote) this is not an Alice in Wonderland tale lovingly dictated in manga form. This is a story of horror and survival in a certain prefecture of Japan where something in the air has made all of humans exposed shrink to the size of dolls (and possibly make certain animals more aggressive.) Officially this book is rated Older Teen so use your best judgment before handing it to a younger reade

While I do appreciate taking the idea of everyone suddenly shrinking and making it dark instead of whimsical, this was so fucking depressing. I will give credit where credit is due, Ishikawa clearly thought about the struggles one would go through having inexplicably shrunk, but the overall tone and atmosphere, not to mention the SDF's response to the situation, was too dark and gloomy considering the current state of the world.

Also, the pacing was a tad too fast and it felt like I breezed throu
This manga started with Yukko, our MC woke up from sleep and finding herself has shrunken to smaller than her dog. Wondering what had happened, she come face to face to the struggle of being small and threaten also by a lot of predators. Later, she found out that she's not the only one!

It's a solid 3 stars which means a very average read in my rating. Average: nothing profound or interesting about it but not a bad story. I was interested in the story because it looked like a retelling. Then upon

I'd say this is a promising manga. It's rather choppy, but despite that I did enjoy the pacing. I definitely feel this has potential, and so I'm really excited to learn more about what the heck happened it that prefecture hahah.

I've been craving so much horror manga recently. I'm really hoping for this to be good because I'm pretty sure I'll be done with ハピネス 1 in a couple of weeks.

What the heck!! We dont know why but the residents of this town all shrink. Thinks you don't think about happen. Cats and birds move to the top of the food chain (darker than I anticipated). How do you feed your dog? I will definitely be reading more of this series! ...more

This was probably one of the weirdest manga I have ever read... and that is saying a lot. I'm not even sure what to say about it? I was (obviously) attracted to this because the entire vibe draws heavily from one of my favorite stories but what this ACTUALLY is... is an uncomfortable, horrific sort of mess. The main character wakes up and everyone in her town has turned small. When she ventures outside she sees neighbors and friends being torn apart by cats and crows, gangs of small people killi ...more

A 9/10 book in my opinion! A school girl wakes up one day to find out that all the people in her town have shrunk! The military is trying to keep the event away from the news as it is only one town which has had this issue. It becomes a bloody fight for survival between people and animals which now prey on them. All while the military is trying to capture a girl named Alice who cannot speak the same language as everyone whom she meets while shrunk. I would recommend this for sci-fi fans, fans of ...more

What happens when you shrink a whole population of a Tokyo prefecture down to the size of a classic Star Wars action figure? You produce thousands of cat toys and fodder for the birds! This series opens up frightening and stays that way throughout. And, if the cats and birds don’t get you, mankind’s greatest predator, other humans, will get you instead. Paint sniffing hooligans intent on violence and shadow government agencies bent on containment pursue miniature survivors at every turn. This wa ...more

Lets start by stating the obvious for everyone who has read this, it is NOT a retelling of Alice in Wonderland. I got this thinking that it would be and while I am disappointed that it isn't my favorite tale in manga form, I really enjoyed it.
This story follows our main character Yukko as she tries desperately to figure out what the hell happened..why and how did everyone shrink? What is happening in their neighborhood?
This is definitely a horror manga with some really big Attack on Titan vibe
Michelle Mease
I am honestly not sure if I liked it. It was a little weird. And it doesn't give much of a story of what is going on. It is about a girl that wakes up and she is tiny. And she wakes up to find the Cat killing her parents (who have also shrunk). She goes out to try and find help. She meets a girl named Alice along the way. They find other Tiny people. And they are all trying to survive.
I think this is a ⭐⭐.5 out of 5 stars. I feel like if I had the rest of the series I would understand it alittl

This isn't a retelling of Alice in Wonderland. So far the only similarities are the main character shrinking and a character named Alice. This story is definitely gruesome and the animals seem extra aggressive but it's fascinating. I'll be continuing with the series, mainly so I can make sure Poco is doing good. Poko is the bestest boy! ...more
The scenes of the cat batting around its mini-masters were too violent for me, and that's just the first chapter. It's very post-apocalyptic in its "questing" plot, but the apocalypse is still going on intermittently during the story. ...more

Sorta cool concept every one wakes up one day tiny like in Alice in wonderland so it's basically a survival story to find out how it happened and look for more people and answers. Check it out :) just a tad bit boring but I'm going to read more ...more

2.5 stars because I don't know what to think about this. Definitely an unusual start - an entire prefecture's population is turned miniature sized overnight & is now subject to all manner of bloody deaths. Alice is a side character who speaks an unknown language. ...more

So this is had nothing to do with Alice in wonderland. Well maybe for 10%. But I liked it I guess. I don’t care about any of the characters (yet) except for poco if you can call a dog a character. The art is ok, nothing special but definitely not the worst.
The concept & delivery of Wonderland is just intriguing enough to hold my attention. Never expected to take to it so fast. Looking forward to volume 2.
