Alice: I... I've always...!
Cheshire: I heard, Black Rabbit.
Black Rabbit: Heard what?

Black Rabbit: That's...
Chrono: I've done it! I've obtained it! I finally, finally obtained it! As long as I have this, I...! I...!
Black Rabbit: If you so wish, I can erase this world.
Light: Jack escaped!?
Cheshire: So that's your answer...
Alice: Every day... Every every every single day! I'm sick of it!
Elisabeth: Alice! Your memories...!?
Black Rabbit: You have to stop, Alice!
Shadow: The Alice we've known up until now is going to go away!?
Chrono: Alice! Alice! I'll kill you, so come on out wherever you are!
Time: Hurry, Alice.
Round: Will you play with me again?
Black Rabbit & Text: Alice!
Alice: I'm sorry... Everyone...

Lee Simin designed the characters for animation and is the animation director, and Kimiko Tamai is the general director. Toshiyuki Yamamoto is producing the series. The anime's theme song is titled "Dear Alice,".
The story of the original game follows Arisa Minase, a cheerful, gentle girl who lives peacefully with her kind parents and older brother, and who has a lot of friends. The story starts on the night before Arisa's birthday, and she is eating cake with her brother when the clock strikes midnight. At the exact moment the clock strikes midnight, suddenly the ground opens beneath her feet and Arisa is taken to Wonderland where the inhabitants, who resemble people she knows in her world, all call her Alice. Arisa relives the same day in Wonderland over and over, and she must find the real Alice to be able to break the cycle and return to her own world.
The original adults-only adventure game shipped for Windows computers in August 2012.
