Pandora Hearts
 
This is my first time creating a thread...:heh:

http://aycu38.webshots.com/image/413...6661159_fs.jpg

The title of this manga is "Pandora Hearts", it is a manga series that is currently running in the monthly issues of G-Fantasy, a division of Square-Enix. The story and art is done by Jun Mochizuki.

The main genre for the story is probably fantasy and supernatural, but there are healthy doses of comedy and suspense, a bit of action and even romance. The setting is that of 18/19th century Europe.


Synopsis:

Quote:


Fifteen year old Oz Bezarius is the heir to one of the duke houses, his life is one full of riches, peace, and happiness. However, that all changed at his coming-of-age ceremony. For unknown reasons, he was cast into the darkness prison known as the "Abyss", it is there where he meets a girl who calls herself Alice, the bloodstained black rabbit.

Why was he cast into Abyss? How does Alice factor into it all? And what does the organization known as "Pandora" want with him...?

These are the question Oz has to figure out as he leaves his carefree life, and enters a frightening wonderland filled with psychotic rabbits, talking dolls, and a mysterious watch that may be the key to all the answers...



Currently, there are three volumes that have been released.



The series is licensed by Broccoli Books. There is also a drama CD that was released just recently...

And I thought someone would post here before I do.:heh:

Well can't comment much since I haven't read the story yet but the premise does seem promising with Oz and Alice capturing my attention already.

*goes off to find the manga, if possible..*

Comic Connection, Bedok.

Oz is a great male lead character :nod: Alice is quite a Tsundere :D

Damn you for getting me to spend money on manga again. :p Though Hantsuki was definitely worth it. :nod:

Alice does have the face of someone being voiced by Tamura Yukari (no link?:heh:) but to be a tsundere? :eek: Strangely this is a great incentive for some reason. :love:

Estavali 2008-01-21 21:27

This looks good, hmm.

I wonder if the CCs in the west side have it as well. Does it have a Chinese name or such?

*goes for hunting*

No link :heh: But I have audio confirmation from the Drama CD :)

Her Tsun side isn't exactly in the same tier as shana/louise of such though :heh:

No Chinese name :) It is just call "Pandora Hearts" :)

Don't bother looking in the Tong Li or Chuangyi section though, you won't find it there...

Ah, thanks. This will save me a lot of time.

So far, there have been 4 volumes already released, each with about 4 or 5 chaps.

There are an additional 3 chapters release for Issues of G-Fantasy. Those are raw, so I have no clue what's going on, except there's quite a bit of blood...

Here's an image of one of the releases...

EDIT:

I've gotta say though, Oz is slowly becoming one of my ideal male lead characters :D

Tormenk 2008-02-22 08:53

Just got volumes 1 and 2. Must say from the covers alone I'm quite looking forward to it. :D

Where I'm from, I've seen only up to book 3, And even then it still requires abit of effort to understand the whole thing :heh:

I have seen scans from Vol 4 & 5, but they're all raws, so I'm even MORE clueless :eyespin:

Btw I'm curious, have you heard the Drama CD yet?

She may be a Tsundere, but she also shows her cute/child-like side often :nod: As seen mostly in book 2...

Fay 2008-03-31 09:34

Well... i ordered raws from Amazon, coz i'll never find this manga where i live T__T
I've seen scans from all the 4 volumes + vol 5 and part of vol 6 from G-Fantasy.

Well from what I could tell, most of it were scenes from the manga except one, that's when Oz had Alice and Sharon dress up in aprons to attempt to cook a meal for Raven who had fallen ill :heh:

Don't bother, the inability to understand makes it even more fustrating :heh:

But here's the gist of it ;)

Oh, I forgot to mention before, Sharon is voiced by Yui HORIE in the drama CD :heh:


(In case you don't know, Sharon is the blond haired girl that Oz had a crush on in the first book :) )
