    I'm not sure I've got this emotionally involved in a story so early on as I have with this one. I have a feeling this is going to destroy me, I'm so excited!

    Toooo confusing...!!! But I am so excited to know more! It feels like there is going to be a great plot twist. And it feels like it is going to break my heart. I also loved characters :Oz- very complex character, never showing much emotion and having cheery face, but thinking and confused, even scared inside.Alice- is also confused because she doesn't remember anything about herself and how she is in abysis .. And she looks tough but really vulnerable inside.Raven (view spoiler)[ a.k.a. Gilbert ( I knew it!)(hide spoiler)] is perfect , reliable and also cool)) I loved him, so handsome..And there is Sharon- which I am not sure who she is (I don't trust her ) and Break- which I don't trust either..The manga is both comic and creepy...That's why I have high hopes))) Second readWow. It is so easy to see how messed-up person Oz really is. He is creepy. And hey, knowing all the plot twists ahead, it is fun reading...and also heartbreaking...

    "...But to me...it doesn't seem like...you've lost anything that makes you who you are.""Why do you care about that girl?"Pandora Hearts continues to throw questions at us, and doesn't take the reader as someone for a low IQ. Rather, it treats you like one of the characters, twisting your emotions and playing with you. It's rare to find a manga series that doesn't feed everything to you. PH takes you seriously, and it doesn't hold back on depressing themes, love and friendship. And this is handled in a very mature manner.The art is gorgeous as always, and expressions are drawn with such diversity that every scene stands on its own.The second volume opens with Oz asking Gil why his father despises him. From there, we learn more about Break and Sharon, the Baskervilles, and why Oz has been condemned.Because Oz made a contract with Alice who is a Chain-someone born in the Abyss-this makes Oz an illegal contractor. An illegal contractor is branded with an incuse, which is a clock-like tattoo that tells how much time the illegal contractor has left before they are devoured by the Abyss...we quickly see an example of this and it shakes Oz to the core. Break and Sharon decided not to tell Oz about this, because he needed to witness the horror himself. Kind of cruel if you ask me.Despite all of this, Oz smiles and hides behind his cheery mask. I can instantly relate to hiding behind a smile, and it was even more convincing when you would see glimpses of another part of Oz that proved he was more twisted than you believed.Even Break confronts him about this and we see Oz's guard slip under Break's scrutiny. Break and Sharon themselves are hiding lots of secrets. We learn who Raven truly is, how long Oz has actually been in the Abyss for, and why Break and Sharon still look they way they do after all that time passing. We even get a little taste about why Oz was cast into the Abyss...and it isn't pretty.Even though more questions are raised than answered, I was intrigued and engrossed completely. This volume had a strong emphasis on friendship, loyalty, death and love. One of Alice's memories is returned to her this volume, and in it, we learn about a dark side of Oz.While Oz still thinks Sharon is cute, he definitely seems to feel something towards Alice. He blushes a few times and it so adorable.Pandora Hearts is not a series that you can pick up and expect to understand everything right away. Go with the flow, become invested or interested in the characters and the world, and you should easily enjoy it. Don't try to make assumptions about what's going on, because you will most likely be proven wrong. The writing is strong and it is obvious the mangaka mapped out every little detail. Definitely will be continuing the series.Here you can purchase Pandora Hearts for $9.74 instead of the listed $13:my link textThis link will lead you to the first volume. The rest can easily be purchased from this link.

    I've surrendered any expectations of understanding everything immediately. I'm fine with this, because I absolutely adore the potential of the characters. Oz, Raven, and Alice are a beautiful trio of bickering BrOTPs. OZ AND RAVEN'S FRIENDSHIP, HNNNNNNNNNNNG, I NEED MOAR. Break amuses me. By the way, can I ask if Emily is a real person?Still not exactly sure what a contractor does. A contractor makes an agreement with a chain, right? To be their body? Or something...Eh, still not sure about everything, but I'm sure I'll catch on as I go forth!

    I really enjoyed this volume! It's a very enthralling series, it's definitely keeping me interested (even though there might be times when I'm not completely sure what's happening). But I can't wait to see what happens next... Naailah was soooo right... Gilbert is a total babe.

    Oh. My. Gosh.I think I'm going to have to tone down any superlatives I use for this series because it looks like I'm going to need them later on. At least, if volume two is any indication.I haven't been this excited about a fantasy series since FullMetal Alchemist. And I had the same reaction to volume two in that series as well.Anyway...While volume one was about setting up the story, volume two is all about loyalty in friendships, new and old. Oz learns about the Abyss and time. He finds someone he cared about and learns that many terrible things have happened to them since he was cast in. Most importantly, he discovers the full import of the illegal contract he has with Alice. And it's not good, folks. Not good.There's a lot of amazing stuff in this volume, so I'll just mention three things that I especially loved.First, I loved the interaction between Gil and Oz. The deep devotion Gil feels for Oz is so well done. It never comes across as schmaltzy or saccharine. And it was nice to see Oz acknowledge that devotion in a way that didn't make him seem like a jerk.I liked the development in his relationship with Alice. It's not romantic (yet) but there's a connection between the two that extends beyond their contract. I like how this relationship is affecting the two of them in positive ways.But I think my favorite scene was when Oz finally meets the one who runs the Abyss: the Intention of the Abyss. I love the look on Oz's face when he's dealing with her and the way he finishes the conversation is so awesome because the preparation for it was so subtle.One last thing...I have a new favorite character in Xerxes Break. The first time I read this, I was sure that he was up to no good. Good or evil, though, I got the feeling his story would be interesting after I watched him orchestrate a "demonstration" for Oz and Alice regarding their contract. These lines from Break to Oz are sooooo creepy and yet so good: "I'm curious about what is was that warped you so. But then...you don't seem to have realized that yourself. Say, Oz-kun...where...in the world are you?"Reading volume three? I didn't have a choice.

    My good friend Lex was explaining to me that PH is confusing. (It's not just me, huzzah!) Many things aren't explained for a good long while and/or they still haven't been. So, keeping this in mind, I'm going to henceforth read the following volumes, and hopefully this will allow me to read them without constantly griping that I don't know what's going on.Hopefully.Much better than the first one though, if only for the bickering amongst the crew.

    The second volume of Pandora Hearts continues the story of the first one, following Oz Vessalius and Alice, along with representatives of the organization Pandora, in their quest to find Alice's memories. Among these representatives are Break, an eccentric fellow who seems to know more than he's telling, Sharon, a young girl who's not what she appears, and Raven, a dark and mysterious man who wields a gun. Together, Raven takes Oz and Alice on a mission, where the two learn about Illegal Contractors, which Oz is. Illegal Contractors are people who have improperly made a Contract with a Chain (not the Pandora way), and those who do have a limited time before they're thrown into the deepest level of the Abyss. Most people do this because the Chain tells them that if the person feeds them enough human lives, then that person can change the past. Afterwards, they return to the mansion where Oz was cast into the Abyss, and it is there they find one of Alice's memories, along with a secret. It turns out that Raven is actually Gilbert, Oz's valet and friend, and that ten years have passed since Oz was imprisoned within the Abyss. They stop the enemy, who was one of the ones who threw Oz into the Abyss, but unfortunately they get away. I enjoyed this because it continues the previous book's style, but builds upon what was there in a positive way.The characters continue to be enticing and believable, along with fairly likeable. Oz continues to be an unwavering optimist, and is still incredibly childish. Alice is still violent and extremely controlling, but is shown to have a softer side when Oz gets hurt. Finally, Raven/Gilbert is mostly quiet, but is highly loyal to and protective of Oz, to the point that a powerful Chain controlling him can't force Gilbert to kill Oz. However, he does not get along well with Alice in the slightest.

    Welcome to my review of volume 2 of Pandora Hearts, where I have even more questions than I did after volume 1 and my mind is too broken from the revelations in this volume to deal with them.I liked volume 2 even more than volume 1. I really have no complaints whatsoever and am just trying super hard to keep up with the barrage of questions running through my head!This volume has Raven on the cover, and it finally answered a lot of questions I had about him in the last volume. I finally know what his relations to Gilbert are, why he cares about Oz and even have some general idea about his relation to the plot. Yay for answers! Plus, Raven is such a ridiculously lovely guy, and it isn't because of how he looks. He's funny and kind and even though he generally keeps to himself you can tell he's a loyal guy just by how he treats Oz. I'm still curious about a lot of aspects of his past, especially considering the 10 year time lapse that apparently happened that didn't get mentioned until now. Seriously, guys, how did it not get mentioned until now? Oh my god. Talk about mental whiplash. Anyway, I want to know what the pulping heck Raven has been doing all this time with Break, and just what his relations to Break and Pandora are.Questions - I have so many of them! Anyway, speaking of Break...I know this is only volume 2, but I feel I can safely declare that Break is officially my favourite character of this series. No competition. I know he's manipulative and psychotic and two-faced and apparently quite cruel to boot. I don't care. Break is the character I'm most curious about. His flaws, combined with his flamboyant charm and his perpetually maniacal grin, make for one of the most ridiculously fascinating characters I've ever encountered. I'm really looking forward to knowing more about Break as the story goes on, simply because he's so complex and devious and I really want to know about his actual motivations.I realize that Alice is one of the main characters, but she really fell flat for me in this volume. Thinking back, I don't remember liking her a huge lot in the last one either, to be honest. It feels to me that either the author is deliberately trying to keep her out of the limelight, or she's just a vehicle for Oz's connection to Pandora and the Abyss. I don't dislike her, she just makes me confused because I don't know how I'm meant to feel about her yet.More questions. Anyone spot a theme yet? The tagline for this series should be "questions: you will have them".I deeply love Oz as well. I know I touched on this already in my review of Uraboku but I hate it when characters are used as a vehicle to praise the main character's good traits. So it's with immense joy that I note how the author of Pandora Hearts prefers to show us a character's personality instead of telling us about it. I notice that Oz is a good guy because he's always willing to help the people he cares about without expecting a reward. He's quick to believe the best in people, always has faith and is always willing to lend a helping hand. Sure he screws up occasionally but that only makes him more realistic. He's such a nice main character that I can't help but care about him. I like who he is and what he represents, and I don't want anything bad to happen to him. Of course, if this is as good a series as it seems to be, bad things will inevitably happen to the main character, but I know I'll care about what happens to him.I really like the art as well. After two volumes now, I'm really getting into the style of it, and it's already starting to stand apart from Kingdom Hearts which the first volume reminded me of. I love the costumes and how the characters are drawn as being very distinct. For example, I love how Raven looks so mysterious, whilst Break looks like the typical nice-guy, when in reality their personalities are exactly the opposite of how they seem. (That said, Raven looks like the love-child of a magician and a cowboy.) There's depth and mystery even in the drawing style and the attention to detail makes a re-read just glorious, since you'll discover something new each and every time.I love books that don't give up all their secrets at once.The biggest thing, however, is the plethora of questions I'm left with at the end of this volume. Some of my most pressing curiosities are listed below;- how did Raven end up working for Break?- what happened during the 10 year time lapse?- what happened to Oz's family?- what are Break's real motivations?- who is Break actually working for? What really is Pandora?- who runs Pandora?- what does Pandora stand to gain from helping Oz or Alice?- what are Sharon's motivations?- who is Sharon, actually, and how did she end up in Pandora with Break?- what's the purpose of the giant dolls attacking Alice?- who sent the dolls, and why do they want Alice dead?- why didn't they try to kill Alice whilst she was by herself in the Abyss?- why was Alice in the Abyss in the first place?- just what the hell is the Abyss, anyway?These are added to the questions from the last volume that weren't answered, such as;- what is Oz's sin?- why does he need to die for it?- what the hell do the Baskervilles actually do?- what the hell is a chain, specifically?Oh the questions. I have a few other recommendations that are lined up and waiting to be read, but I can't wait until I can tackle volume 3. I hope it's just as exciting and fascinating as the preceding volumes!

    The second volume of Pandora Hearts blows the first one completely out of the water. Volume two has a lot more substance and darkness than volume one. I enjoyed this one a lot.Again, the characters are marvelous, amazing, great, fantastic, hilarious….I think you get the point. This volume focuses on the characters Raven, Oz, and Alice which is very awesome as they are hilarious together. Raven does not like Alice and Alice does not like Raven and they fight and Oz kind of just smiles all happy-go-lucky which gets Alice a bit irritated. The way they interact with each other is just hilarious. In this volume Oz learns about how serious having a contract with Alice really is and there are going to be horrible consequences if they do not find out how to nullify the contract. We also get to learn something very important about Raven. The way he got to see the person he cared a lot for again was very sweet but a little sad at the same time. The Will of the Abyss gets her own brief scene in this volume! She was very creepy and I loved it! I am excited for future scenes with her. Of course, we also get a few scenes with Break and Sharon who are both also really funny. Break makes some vague remarks but they seem to foreshadow something…or he could just be trolling.The first volume of Pandora Hearts was more of a set up for the story but in this volume things really take off! Secrets are being revealed, answers are given, and then more questions are showing up. There is also a little tid bit where we get a glimpse of Alice’s memories! I am really impressed with the complex story Mochizuki has created and it seems to be getting more complex as I read through more and more chapters!Again, I love the way Jun Mochizuki draws…It seems to me she is getting better! The lines are crisp and very clear. The art can be cute and beautiful but also creepyThe second volume of Pandora Hearts does not disappoint! The story is getting more complex and mysterious and I am excited to read and review the future volumes…

    El primer tomo de estos mangas me gustó bastante y ya me habían dicho de que este segundo mejoraba bastante en comparación con el primero y la verdad a que lo ha hecho y con creces. Me sigue fascinando como el mangaka a creado una historia tan compleja llena de giros argumentales y elementos fantásticos que cada vez nos introducen más en ella y en el mundo que nos presenta. En este manga nos encontramos con bastantes descubrimientos que harán que nos sorprendamos muchísimo cuando lo leamos. El ritmo sigue siendo muy rápido y ya no solo porque es un manga y por su mismo formato se lee muy rápido sino que engancha de forma que lo acabas enseguida aunque no pude leer durante algunos días y por eso tarde un poco. En este manga profundizamos casi tanto en los personajes como en la propia historia que nos cuenta. Tenemos un mayor desarrollo de ellos lo cual me hizo falta en el primero y siento que aquí se ha sabido llevar muy bien. Alice, personalmente, me encanta como personaje secundario en la trama, me parece una chica espectacular y está claro que si el mangaka le saca jugo al personaje va a dar mucho de que hablar. Por otro lado, Oz, nuestro protagonista, me ha conseguido enamorar con esa manera tan particular de ser suya y que consigue ganarse un huequito en el corazón del lector. Por ultimo, Raven, es un pedazo de personaje que creo que merece muchísimo la pena conocer pero prefiero no dar detalles para que no haya spoilers. Los dibujos me siguen encantando. Los escenarios no se le prestan mucho atención pero se nota que Jun Mochizuki se los curra en esas viñetas en las que hay sólo paisajes y la estética de los personajes es una pasada. El final deja con muchas ganas de continuar y no puedo esperar para leer el tercer tomo. PRÓXIMAMENTE LA RESEÑA EN EL BLOG.

    it just keeps on getting better.oz is really a sunshine huh? a nice refresher to all my favorite characters who just fall in the categories of being either psycho/manipulative/sadistic/angst-ridden/VERY BAD. oh wait, i actually do like break too! that means i still have a character that falls in those categories. sigh. shie, you're very predictable.i really like oz. optimistic to the point of being very unbelievable. how he just looks ahead and smile. how he easily forgives people. how he finds good in EVERYTHING. oz is the total opposite of EVERY character in EVERY piece of fiction that i have EVER liked. again, a nice refresher.his friendship with gilbert.... did it break you? group hug!!!and that clock. did it remind you of chrono crusade and the pain? group hug for the second time around!!!(view spoiler)[- i still don't know what oz's sin is- apparently oz is the key to the abyss' will. now how did that happen? what is so special about him that he's the key? how did he become the key? i feel like there's a deeper explanation for this.- who/what is that puppet-like rabbit thing?- BREAK IS VERY FISHY I LIKE HIM- what does break mean when he said he can't clearly see oz's form??? WHHAAAAAATTTTT (hide spoiler)]

    Another great installment of Pandora Hearts. At this point, I really shouldn't be surprised. With fantastic art, a great story, and lovable characters, Pandora Hearts only gets better with each volume.That being said, I'm really interested to see where Pandora Hearts is going. This Alice in Wonderland adaptation is much darker than most manga I come across, so it's really interesting to see the twists and turns that the characters take. This installment of Pandora Hearts only adds more to the already complex story and twists the sanity of the characters ever-so-slightly. Sanity will break in this series, I can already see.I don't really have any complaints with this volume of the series. Everything progressed really well and I was so into the story that I didn't realize how much time had passed until I finished the book. Anyone that read the first volume should read the second one. There's so much to the story that gives way to more questions in the second volume.

    He de decir que estoy maravillada. Han sido muchos años siguiendo el manga y lo único que puedo decir es que me ha encantado. No sabéis la pena que me ha dado terminarla... Para empezar, la historia es muy interesante y con bastantes similitudes con "Alicia en el País de las Maravillas" y "Alicia a través del espejo". Aunque no negaré que también es un tanto enrevesada y puede ser algo liosa en algún punto. Y algo que me ha gustado mucho, es que cada personaje...Seguir leyendo>>

    One of the best manga series, it fills you with every emotion. One minute you're laughing, the next you're crying. Can be a real tear jerker. There is violence, so I do not recommend it for young minds, and there are some things about the author's view on life which I disagree with based on my own personal beliefs. But even so, the story is very well told and one of the few that keep you waiting for the next book to come out. There are so many mysteries to be solved, it keeps you on your toes.Adventure, mystery, drama, a good sense of humor, some horror, fast paced in a good way, tragedy.

    YES. Oh, yes, the best manga so far. Of course, it's only the second in the series, but it was a lot less confusing. Plus, I got to learn more on the background of my favorite character (Gilbert/Raven). But as far as the amazingly complex storyline goes? I'm off to the wiki site.

    *SPOILER ALERTS* This one was pretty good. I had already guessed that he had come back in the future because Raven looked too much like Gil. Then seeing the condition of the manor sealed the deal. I love the artistic quality of all the chains in this series!

    Hmmm... searching for lost memories and solving mysteries along the way. Where have I heard that before? The premise is a complete CLAMP copy-cat! I still like it, though. The story is really dark and the pace is a little better and of course I love the art.

    Oz Vessalius was rescued from the Abyss by a chain, a demon of sorts, named Alice (or B Rabbit). But that rescue comes with a price, as he has now formed an illegal contract with the chain and must now find a way to break it or die.His approach, with the help of the mysterious Pandora organization, is to help Alice find her lost memories, perhaps giving her the ability to break the chain. So he returns to the point where he first entered the abyss and found her. Along the way, he learns the consequences of a completed illegal contract and exactly who he's working with, for good and for ill.Another pretty good volume here. I'll keep reading.
