The designs actually remind me of the Disney Channel's series Adventures in Wonderland. Very tacky 90's clothing, but looks fun.

As a Christian, even I'm curious to see the Bible adapted into and AWESOME anime!!

There are several Bible characters I can think of who could be BADASS, notably the man upstairs himself God, and Jesus, and maybe add some fantasy and mecha elements to it!!

I'd like to see an anime version of the Greek mythology, hell, even Japanese mythology!!

Oh yay. Because the world so needs another 'Alice in Wonderland' adaptation.

I don't really mind, but that book has been adapted so badly so many times that it is really starting to bother me. It's one of my favorites.

@#%^!!! I was so looking forward to this OVA! *RAGE* >Sad
Also, I think this Alice adaption is a bit more different that most of the other ones because I heard that the heroine has a very cool and cold personality...

Yep, there have been Bible anime. One, In The Beginning - The Bible Stories, even involved both Osamu Tezuka and Osamu Dezaki. There's also Superbook, Pasocon Travel Tanteidan, and The Flying House.

For all the nay-sayers, Heart no Kuni is actually a pretty good game, and the pyschological aspects surrounding Alice's personality is great.

Quin Rose make IMHO make otome games to a very high creative standard. However, no matter how high I hold my esteem for their products, their refusal to sell products oversees and the fact the actively try to prevent overseas buyers from getting pre-orders (so it comes with fun extra stuff) leave me baffled and rather ticked off.

Some remakes can be interesting, Alice has been done a few times, Take the videogame of it, American Mcgee's Alice Twisted Evil

ahh a movie based on that could be fun Cool

So for me at least it'll be nice to see yet another adaptation.

Besides that, they're turning God into a sexy clothes-torn girl. Laughing

I have no issues with the game as a concept, but rather the fact that everyone and their mother seems to want to do a version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and then completely bastardizes it. It's a wonderful world, but Alice has a distinct way of looking at things, and a personality that people too often just ignore. She's also seven.

American McGee's Alice, is fine, for example, as it recognizes that Wonderland is a place in Alice's head and so as her psyche deteriorates, so does the world. But when people just mess around with it, it bugs me. Probably because it was a huge part of my childhood and is one of the things my dad and I bonded over.

Feel free to ignore me, of course. I wouldn't dream of telling people not to get this. I'm just voicing my displeasure over an Alice adaptation that once again seems to have missed the point of the book.

And I've seen some Bible manga. They are always hilarious. Like the one where Satan was the world's most stereotypical Mexican. Rolling Eyes
