Miyuki-chan in Wonderland


Summary: >

When Alice went to wonderland, she was introduced to an unusual array of characters in a totally strange, and alien world. When Miyuki went to wonderland, she also saw a strange world and met an unusual array of characters. Alice however, was not quite as cute as Miyuki, and the everyone decides it might be fun to get fresh with cute little Miyuki.


Thoughts: >

Sometimes I really wonder about CLAMP - this group of women who have great art talents in the shoujo line who seem to make these semi perverse manga titles for hormonally charged males. Actually that might make them geniuses. I've heard that CLAMP only did this for extra money. And yeah, the manga is pretty much just like the anime.

Clocking in at half an hour you'd think a show like this would be a speed bump in anime history, but it still has it's fans. I wouldn't count myself among those, but I'd certainly watch it again. Why? Why do guys like lesbians? If you can answer that, you can see why guys will like this anime. Lesbians don't even need to be interested in the guy. We're happy just watching. Same with Miyuki-chan in Wonderland. Why do girls like this anime? I have no idea, but I can only pray it's to inspire them.

There's no depth here, nor is there meant to be. It's just a light hearted take on Alice in Wonderland with mildly sexual undertones. The fact that it's a niche classic says something about its strange appeal. It's a strange curiosity which is oddly appealing. Probably not worth digging up unless you're looking for (these days) obscure fluff.
