''Heart no Kuni no Alice'' ~''Wonderful Wonder World''~ (''Alice in the Land of Hearts'') is a girly but bloody OtomeGame re-imagining of Lewis Carroll's classic fantasy novel ''Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'' with [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys bishounen characters]] and added romance. There are three games and a manga of the first game, which is published in English by Tokyopop.

Alice is practical and strong, yet cynical. Alice is kidnapped by a mysterious {{Bishonen}} man with bunny ears into a place called the Country of Hearts. Stuck there due to a trick by the mysterious bunny-eared man, she meets the residents of this world. In the world, everyone starts taking to a liking to her at some point due to her being a foreigner.

A movie adaptation came out in July 2011.

!''Heart no Kuni no Alice'' has examples of:
* AfraidOfNeedles: Nightmare. He's so sickly, at one point he coughs up blood because he's ''happy'', but refuses to go to the hospital because of his fear.
* Literature/AliceInWonderland: The series is based off of the book, but with violence and psychos tossed in.
** And [[CastFullOfPrettyBoys sexy guys]].
* AnAxeToGrind: Dee and Dum prefer using [[WeaponOfChoice axes over guns]], unlike most people there.
* AnimalMotifs: Anyone associated with an animal from the original story:
** Peter's associated with white rabbits.
** Sydney is associated with black rabbits.
** Elliot's associated with hares ([[BerserkButton NOT rabbits]]).
** Gray is associated with lizards.
** Boris is associated with [[CheshireCatGrin mischievous grinning cats]].
** Nightmare is associated with bagworms ([[InsistentTerminology NOT caterpillars]]).
** Jericho Bermuda is associated with dodo birds.
** Pierce is associated with dormice and mice in general.
* BerserkButton: Don't tease Gowland about his first name.
** Also, Elliot is totally not a hare nor does [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial he love to eating carrots in any form]]; he's a dog. Really.
** And don't even go close to Alice when Peter is around...
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Ace is easily one of the nicest people in Wonderland when you first see him (manga-wise at least) what with his cheery disposition and willingness to help Alice (even if he does end up getting them lost). The next time he appears, [[spoiler: he's wearing a tattered cloak that has bloodstains all over it, and a mask that makes him look like a serial killer. As it turns out, he's one of the most unstable people in Wonderland, and would kill Alice if it wasn't for her heartbeat.]]
* {{Bishonen}}: Nearly all of the Roleholders in the game. Which might explain why the games are {{Otome Game}}s. This in turn leads to:
** CastFullOfPrettyBoys: Except for Vivaldi and Alice.
* ButtMonkey: Most of the bullying Pierce goes through tends to be PlayedForLaughs. This includes being chased around and getting picked on by [[CatGirl Boris]], who wants to eat him, and the twins.
* [[CatGirl Cat Boy]]: One look at Boris' appearance and you can tell that he's obviously this.
* CoolBigSis: Alice sees Vivaldi as this. [[spoiler: Vivaldi's also a ''literal'' cool big sis for Blood]].
* CutenessProximity: In the manga, once Peter discovers that Alice ''loves'' cute things, he turns into his rabbit form more often. [[ImTakingHerHomeWithMe With predictable results.]] Lampshaded by Alice herself, who notes that it's the same old annoying Peter, but he's just so [[MoeMoe gosh darn cute]] as a bunny...
* CreepyTwins: Tweedle Dum and Dee.
* DeathIsCheap: Everyone in Wonderland has a clock instead of the heart in their chests which allows them to be replaced, which is why the world is so violent most of the time.
* DownTheRabbitHole: It's more of the white rabbit kidnapping Alice and throwing her down the rabbit hole.
* EyepatchOfPower: Nightmare. [[spoiler: And yes, despite what [[AfraidOfNeedles he's like]], he actually is quite powerful.]]
* TheFaceless: Anyone who isn't a Roleholder doesn't get a face.
* FantasticRacism: In Wonderland, mice face discrimination from most of the other residents. Pierce Villiers, a mouse and a Roleholder, is no exception to this. Hence, he tends to be disliked by most of of the cast, and [[ButtMonkey even goes through abuse]] by the hands of some of the characters.
* ForcefulKiss: Peter forces her to take a potion that way that makes her stuck in in Wonderland. [[spoiler: Though, it's revealed in Bad End 2 of Heart no Kuni that Alice could have gone back home anytime she wished.]]
* FunnyForeigner: Everyone sees Alice as this.
* GenderBlenderName: ''Mary'' Gowland.
* TheGlomp: The twins are fond of doing this to Alice. Unfortunately for her, they tend to be holding axes while doing this.
* GoryDiscretionShot: Whenever anyone is shot in the head. Stabbing someone in the neck is perfectly fine though.
* HenpeckedHusband: The King.
* {{Jerkass}}: Much to the displeasure of original game fans, this applies strongly to the most well-known manga adaption by Hoshino, where[[spoiler: Blood has attempted to strangle Alice, eventually started acting like a whiny brat, and then pointed his gun at her for no reason]]. Such extreme behavior strongly deviates from his more calculating and cool-headed persona established in the games and every other manga.
* KnifeThrowingAct: In TheMovie, Alice suddenly finds herself strapped to a board in the circus. Two demented kids start throwing knives at her, ignoring her protests. One of the knives cuts her cheek. The last two would have landed in her chest if Blood Dupree hadn't blocked them in time. Enraged at them for endangering her, he annihilates the kids with a machine gun.
* LongHairedPrettyBoy: Julius.
* {{Megane}}: Peter, and Julius when he's working.
* MultipleEndings: In the games, you can get multiple endings.
* NoSenseOfDirection: Ace.
* NonstandardGameOver: If you don't visit Vivaldi/the Twins at least once when you stay at the Castle/the Hatter's, Alice will be murdered.
* OfficialCouple: This is a dating sim so all routes are canon but [[spoiler: Blood/Alice is presented as the true end in the anime/first Heart manga by Hoshino while Julius/Alice is the most plot critical.]]
* OnlyOneName: Ace, Joker, and Vivaldi.
* SexyDiscretionShot: Peppered throughout the game, but noticeably at the [[DancesAndBalls ball event]] where just about everybody gets one. Nightmare is the only exception.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: Julius tends to be one of these. His job probably doesn't help with his attitude...
* OjouRinglets: Vivaldi.
* PettingZooPeople: Let's see. One white rabbit, one march hare (who insists he's not), a cheshire cat, and a dormouse. All with very cute ears and tails.
* StalkerWithACrush: Peter White sure has a thing for Alice. To the point that he'd shoot someone if they ever ''dare'' look at her.
* StepfordSmiler: Ace, for one.
* TallDarkAndHandsome: Blood Dupre and Gray Ringmarc.
* {{Telepathy}}: Nightmare can do this to almost everybody.
* TrappedInAnotherWorld: Alice gets kidnapped and thrown into Wonderland. [[spoiler: Subverted though since it's revealed in Bad End 2 of the first game that Alice could've left Wonderland anytime she wanted to.]]
* TricksterTwins: Dee and Dum, of course. Their tricks, however, tend to be deadly or... suggestive.
* {{Tsundere}}: Alice in the manga is a Type B for Blood.
* TwinSwitch: Dee and Dum enjoy messing with people by pretending to be each other.
