After I watched Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland", and it made me remember the Disney version, I came to actually like the story, and did research on it, including "Through the Looking Glass".
When I read about this, I was pretty interested, even if I'm a girl. My plan was to finish watching "Elfen Lied", and then on to this. I tried to lower my expectations, trying not to think that this would be 'pure gold,' because I wondered if this would be a disappointment. And I was (very) right.
When I viewed the first episode on YouTube, the beginning felt a bit like "Sailor Moon", but I guess that was because this centers around a girl. When Miyuki and the bunny girl fell down the hole, I giggled, because of the "Yeah, yeah!" Since this is an erotic fantasy, I wasn't surprised with Miyuki's encounter of the door girl, with how she had to get through. When she entered Wonderland and met the Tweedle twins (I can't remember their names -- something like Cho-Li), I guess that was pretty interesting.
But pretty soon, I realized this was a rushed anime. There was this corny song that was being played throughout. I tried to ignore it, but it really fit the speedy pace. As Miyuki was being seduced by woman after woman, my interest was lowering more and more, I guess because this simply just wasn't entertaining nor funny.
It's always something like: Miyuki: "Um, excuse me..." Parody of AiW character: "Oh, hello there, pretty girl." Miyuki: "Do you know a way out of here? I'm lost." Parody of AiW character: "Here, let me..." *tries to seduce Miyuki* Miyuki: "Hey, stop it!" *on to the next scene*
Half-way through, I just paused the video and decided not to see the rest of this 2-episode series.
By the way, Miyuki looked ugly, and those women looked lazily drawn. I bet the manga was even worse -- it only lasts for 11 pages!
If you're not the kind of person who likes to watch fast-paced films with bland comedy (and annoying music), then this is not for you, either.
