If I had to describe the first volume of Alice the 101st in one word, I'd say it would be cute. It is teeth achingly cute, with its dazzling gorgeous shoujoesque artwork and a main character that makes nearly knocking someone in the head with a violin case look downright adorable. This is not to say the manga is without drama or action - there's loads of that stuff, I assure you - but it seems the overall atmosphere so far is that of a boy born of sunshine and bubbles who refuses to give up without a fight even when people call him by a girl's name on a regular basis or make fun of his admittedly mediocre bow skills. Alice is not always genki-genki, mind you; he has no problem punching someone out if they get in his face and try to start trouble, something very much apparent in the first ten pages or so with his first encounter with the one and only Victor. But he keeps the series fun even when his own character is getting into trouble or feeling down, and that alone is something to praise him for; Alice is a main character I want to spend more time with which is usually the mark of a series' staying power with its readers.

Naturally, a manga centered in a musical academy needs to be all about the music. In this category, Alice the 101st not only doesn't disappoint but excels beyond most musically inclined series I've read so far. You can tell that Kawai put a lot of time and effort into researching what goes into musical training, as evident from Alice's lessons with Professor Dalberto, in which they go into great detail over things like scales and techniques without bogging down each scene in minutiae. The scenes in which they play their respective instruments are also very beautiful; I can imagine someone who is learning to play a string instrument will be relatively pleased at the amount of work Kawai put into to make the world of Mondonveille School true to a real music academy. Well, minus all the heavy boys' love overtones going on in this specific school, naturally (unless there is a school out there in which there is constant yaoi-tinged tensions going on between all the male students, in which case try not to tell all the fujoshi in the area about it, okay?). Any doubt in the readers' mind that this title deserves to be published under the Doki Doki line of books should disappear by the end of chapter one, in which an overactive shipper's brain could make the case for Alice/Victor, Alice/Theo, and Theo/Richard - at least. Even though (with the exception of Victor's constant mooning and teasing of Alice) the series hasn't gone into implicit boys' love mode, you can tell that it is getting very close to doing so. And when it does, it's going to be sweet.

In short, Alice the 101st is a sweet, endearing story about a boy growing up and finding the talents that lie inside of his heart. It sounds corny as heck, but it works splendidly on paper, and you'll be hardpressed not to like (if not love) Alice and his crazy academic exploits. It's a series with heart that looks to be going places, and I can't wait to see what those might be. Volume two can't come out fast enough for me!
