After finishing Fullmetal Alchemist (see below) I wanted something a little more light and fluffy. Alice has a plot and it's actually the perfect fluff plot: all she wants is to go back home, and since she doesn't know how to do this she has a lot of free time for nonsense and shenanigans.
This isn't the best quality manga and not the type of manga I read now, but it was the first manga I ever read, so I love it anyway. I started buying my own after getting tired of borrowing from my friends.
Probably one of the best mangas out there, because it not only has a plot but it's a great one, it's got diverse and dynamic characters, and it's got real drama.
Started it for the art style, stayed for the humor. Feels plotless but it's nice fluff and it looks great, though I'm behind on buying them.
