Manga / Miyuki-chan in Wonderland

Go To

Poor Miyuki-chan is Late for School. As she hurries down the street, a girl in a bunny outfit skateboards by. The bunny girl enters a portal, and Miyuki-chan falls in. It's like Wonderland, except with an entirely female cast and being significantly more perverted. After a series of misadventures, Miyuki-chan wakes up, is late for school, and as she hurries down the street, a girl in a bunny outfit skateboards by.

The next part involves her getting sucked into the looking glass. Similar craziness ensues.

And that was just the anime version. The manga version has even more adventures for her as Miyuki keeps dreaming one Homoerotic Dream after another.

The standard Miyuki-chan adventure goes like this:

  1. Miyuki is doing some mundane task or viewing some fiction.
  2. Things start getting a lot stranger. Miyuki will likely be sucked into the fiction.
  3. If it hasn't already, the world becomes much Hotter and Sexier. Les Yay abounds.
  4. Miyuki protests most or all of what's happening.
  5. Miyuki wakes up.
  6. Some evidence shows up that it wasn't just a dream or she's still in the dream.

Probably CLAMP's most titillating work ever, the manga was serialized in Newtype from 1993 to 1995 and compiled into a single volume. It was licensed in English by Tokyopop, and later by Viz Media after Tokyopop's closure in 2009. The manga was adapted to a two-episode OVA in 1995.

Miyuki-chan in Wonderland provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: In one translation at least, Miyuki seems more worried that she's being made late for school rather than having seemingly fallen into another dimension.
  • Bitch Slap: The chess pieces in Mirrorland remove a piece by walking up to them and slapping them in the face, at which point their clothes vanish and they run off the board in shame.
  • Black Comedy Rape: Miyuki gets sexually harassed by quite a few ladies.
  • Cat Girl: The Cheshire cat is a redhead wearing a striped sexy cat outfit.
  • Clothing Damage
    • Miyuki's outfit tends to get ripped up over the course of a chapter.
    • Also during the human chess game in the anime, when one of the pieces is captured all her clothes disappear.
  • Dream Within a Dream: Possibly done in other episodes/chapters but explicitly done in chapter one of the manga and episode one of the anime.
  • Ecchi: This gets very explicit at times, like when the chess pieces have their clothes vanish.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Pretty much every female character is attracted to Miyuki and most of them act on it.
  • Fetish: It's implied a lot of the goings on are secretly Miyuki's kinks.
    "I've never been turned on by chess pieces before!"
  • Fluffy Fashion Feathers: Humpty Dumpty is a grandly dressed lady (just sitting in an egg), who wears a feather wrap.
  • Fur Bikini: Quite a few girls wear various kinds, from the Cheshire cat(girl) wearing a fuzzy one piece, to devil girls wearing fur bras.
  • "Groundhog Day" Loop: The first chapter, and episode, directly implies it, but it's strongly suggested that each chapter is effectively endless.
  • Hotter and Sexier: Miyuki's adventures are often much sexier than the source material they parody.
  • Screw Yourself: Miyuki's own reflection comes on to her.
  • Sexy Whatever Outfit: Loads are worn, from roses being ladies in sexy flower outfits, to maids in even skimplier outfits than typical, to sexy cat girls and bunny girls.
  • Shout-Out:
    • Miyuki-Chan in TV-Land opens with Miyuki moaning that she missed a late-night showing of Barbarella.
    • Miyuki-Chan in Part-Time Job Land looks to have been heavily inspired by the Advanced Variable Geo games.
  • Sliding Scale of Gender Inequality: Of the "No Male Characters" flavor.
  • Stealth Pun: In the Wonderland segment, Miyuki meets a bunch of flower fairies. One of them is based on a lily. A lily is pronounced "Yuri" in Japanese.
  • Stripperiffic: About half the outfits are not meant to be practical.
  • There Are No Therapists: At least ones that could help Miyuki figure out what her dreams mean. They mean she's a closeted lesbian with several kinky fetishes. That'll be ¥15,000 please, ma'am.
  • Toast of Tardiness: In the Wonderland chapter/segment, Miyuki is Late for School, with the requisite toast. Her cries of "I'm Late!" turn into the White Rabbit's "I'm Late!"
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Some of the Queen of Heart's servants want to be punished for disobeying her.
  • Whip of Dominance: The Queen of Hearts is a Dominatrix styled evil queen who wields a long black whip for both combat purposes and to "punish" others. She even has a cadre of submissive servants who are eager to be whipped by her. She takes sadist joy when using her whip in her attempt to make Miyuki "submit" to her.
