A trip back in time part II

This was supposed to be included in the previous post, but in the interest of time I decided to put this in a new post along with Anime Purchases of the Week


Miyuki-chan in Wonderland (Mirrorland)

This was another title that added to the older OAV’s that I recently added to my collection.  Produced in 1995 this OAV is based off a manga that CLAMP based off of Lewis Carrol’s Alice in Wonderland.  Instead of Alice, we have Miyuki (who has the same blue and white costume that most Alice in Wonderland Alice’s have.)  However the ‘animals’ are replaced by amorous women who all have a thing for Miyuki.  From the door mouse (who calls her boobs ‘knobs’ although I thought ‘knockers’ would have been more fun.)  To the S&M Queen of Hearts whose servants delight in the idea of being ‘punished’ by their domineering mistress.  The second installment is more of the same but it involves a chess game.  No explanation is given as to why the other characters are so attracted to Miyuki, but that really doesn’t interfere with an OVA that’s only 30 minutes long and mostly fun and fanservice.  The one gripe that I do have with the show is that it is subbed only, there is no dub track, I would have enjoyed hearing an English interpretation of Miyuki’smisadventures.  The artwork is classic early CLAMP which is a treat for the eyes with its easy colors and distinct characters, as with most early Anime OAV’s there is more than enough fanservice to go around.  For those who are looking for a bit of quick classic anime goodness, this is a good title.
