QuinRose's Alice fantasy romance adventure game franchise reimagines Lewis Carroll's classic fantasy novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with bishōnen. It has inspired the Alice in the Country of Hearts: Wonderful Wonder World anime and a large collection of spinoff manga. The original game launched in English for iOS and Android this past summer.

Tokyopop published the first Alice in the Country of Hearts manga adaptation in North America, and Yen Press picked up the license and finished the series in 2011. Yen Press also released the two-volume Alice in the Country of Hearts: My Fanatic Rabbit series. Seven Seas has published still more of the manga spinoffs and a light novel inspired by the Alice franchise.
