Clamp is a famous manga team, and those who read their work have come to expect a lot.

Perhaps you read Chobits, and you’re expecting a funny yet philosophical story of the boundary between man and machine, and the meaning of love.
This is not what you will find in Miyuki-Chan in Wonderland. (But it is funny, at least)
Perhaps you preferred X, and you’re expecting a bloody look at the Apocalypse, at the battle not only to save humanity, but to decide if humanity is even worth saving.
This is not what you will find in Miyuki-Chan in Wonderland. (Although X fans will find something familiar)
Or perhaps you’re a fan of Cardcaptor Sakura, and you’re expecting a cute little tale of a young girl saving the world from runaway magic (when she has time off from school of course).
This is not what you will find in Miyuki-Chan in Wonderland. (The only thing Miyuki and Sakura have in common is their schoolgirl uniforms)

What WILL you find in Miyuki-Chan in Wonderland?

Gratuitous fanservice! (perhaps too much for some fans)
A chance for Mokona Apapa to showcase her sexy female character designs!
The Cheshire Catgirl! (a hentai neko if ever I saw one)
Strip Mah-jongg!
Foxy boxing with silly special attacks! (Caramel Overload! Butterfly Chopsticks!)

If you wanted something innocent or intellectual, you’ve got the wrong manga. This is a series of seven stories chronicling the adventures of a girl who keeps unexpectedly landing in alternate worlds populated by strange and amorous females in various stages of undress, most trying to get into Miyuki’s pants (not that she’s wearing pants). The first of these stories is a parody of Alice in Wonderland that might start Lewis Carroll spinning in his grave! There’s the aforementioned Cheshire Catgirl, a woman in a bunny costume on a skateboard (she’s late, she’s late), and the Red Queen as a dominatrix. This story was turned into an anime, but it’s not all.
Don’t expect much plot, or complex characters, or more clothing than is absolutely necessary (and even that has a tendency to get ripped off). This isn’t like any of the other Clamp works I’ve mentioned, and come to think of it they’re not much like each other. It’s like they were written by four different people!
As a manga, Miyuki-Chan in Wonderland has a lot of flaws, but there is one thing going for it: It’s very, very funny. It seems to me like Clamp is parodying themselves. In fact, the last story, Miyuki-Chan in X Land, does exactly that (the phrase “That’s Kamui-Chan’s job” comes up a lot). This really makes more sense if you think of it as an art showcase, rather than expecting a story. There’s also a funny rationalization in the omake section at the end
Um, what they mean to say is that the constant battle against the schoolgirl uniform in Miyuki-Chan is symbolic of women’s struggle against sexual oppression. It’s not like we’re just obsessed with skirts!
Aren’t we?
Well, I know I am.
There’s nothing wrong with that.
I don’t know these people…


Miyuki-Chan, like all of us, sometimes ends up in situations beyond her understanding. Unlike the rest of us, the situations she ends up in tend to include more than her fair share of inexplicable near-naked women. :)

Read only for 20 minutes....I'm giving this book only 5 stars for it's artwork only! I don't care about it's story because of the fact that there's only one common thing... strange female characters trying to get into Miyuki's skirt!
(Although,,,I enjoyed Miyuki-Chan in X Land...)
As for it's artwork, Clamp is truly the best! The females are really sexy...

Finished reading this book. The artwork was nice, the story was nothing original, and the episodes all seemed super short.

I wanted to be happily impressed with this manga, but it left me wanting to know more about what happened during her "travels" outside of the many strange charecters trying to get into Miyuki-Chan's skirt.

Thanks!

Don't read this looking for a good story. Do read it looking for a skimpy storyline and even skimpier character outfits.

Journal Entry 13 by Charmelie on Saturday, January 08, 2005
Wow, Daidy thanks for the book and your great timing. It arrived on a rainy, gloomy San Francisco day when I was feeling really blue. The pictures made me laugh and it's all brief and lighthearted. Poor Miyuki! I'd be afraid to close my eyes. What about a Cheshire cat outfit for next Halloween.
