Sheep is about to dedicate a review to her favorite game, Joker no Kuni no Alice~

It is a visual novel game that requires clicking the mouse most of the time. Indeed, a lazy girl’s game. (Laughs)

I don’t think many of you know this game so to whom it may concern, dozo~

ジョーカーの国のアリス

Ratings for this game: PG13, very mild romance, no nudity, foul words are bleeped and just lots of lemony love.

Language: Japanese

There are no motion pictures for this visual game, note that down please. <^-^>lll

I’m quite a fan of Quinrose’s Alice in Wonderland game.

For first timers…

The story shares a similar ground in which Alice follows a rabbit and falls into a hole, finding herself to be in an enchanted world of fantasy. But for this version, instead of meeting with freaks and reciting their nonsensical poems — Alice meets lots of good-looking men who are at the same time, deadly.

The quest of the game is to help Alice adjust with the people and avoid getting killed or deported back to her world. Also, to capture the hearts of the men~♥.

At the moment, there are 4 installments of the game. First being Heart no Kuni no Alice, followed by Clover no Kuni no Alice, Joker no Kuni no Alice and Anniversary no Kuni no Alice.

I’ve only played Heart and Joker so pardon me for not having sufficient details about the games and the stories. My Japanese is rather poor too.

Anyway, each sequel has a different danger. In Heart, the main danger for Alice is having to go back to her world (Bad Ending of the story) or getting killed by the characters (because of lack of visitation). The characters are quite trigger happy, I must say. Killing comes naturally in their world.

For now, I’m going to focus on Joker no Kuni no Alice which is the 3rd sequel of the game. Please allow sheep to introduce the characters~ ↓

(NB: It seems that the characters don’t have a number to their age and height, no birthdays and blood types)


The Characters of Joker no Kuni no Alice

Name: Alice=Liddell

The player is Alice and reads from her point of view. Alice is rather a skeptical girl but in Joker’s story, she simmers down as she already got along well with the others. She has an elderly sister whom she loves very much and this attachment only endangers her, causing her confusion whether she should return to her former world or continue to live with her new friends.

Name: Blood=Dupre

Character voice by: Katsuyuki Konishi

Location: The Hatter’s Mansion

Blood is a mafia boss and he loves tea very much. He speaks very elegantly and polite but he is not to be taken lightly. His way of showing love can be rather evil as he likes to tease. He is also a very possessive man and coincidentally, Blood’s face bears an uncanny resemblance to Alice’s ex-boyfriend, who has affections for her elder sister.

Name: Elliot=March

Character voice by: Tsuguo Mogami

Location: The Hatter’s Mansion

Elliot March is Blood’s very loyal henchman because Blood broke Elliot out of prison. Elliot loves carrots but denies the fact that he does. He claims that he loves carrot dishes, but not carrots. He also doesn’t seem to know (and accept) that he is a rabbit. Elliot often gets bullied and ridiculed by the Tweedle twins.

Name: Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum

Character voice by: Jun Fukuyama

Location: The Hatter’s Mansion

Tweedle Dee and Dum are twins. It’s easy to distinguish the twins because Dee wears blue while Dum’s red. Also, Dum tends to talk slower than Dee. The twins are the gate guards of the Hatter’s Mansion. They carry spears which can transform into guns. The twins have a liking to collecting weapons, pulling pranks on Elliot and killing. Although they have child-like bodies, they are actually quite matured and can transform into their adult forms.

Name: Vivaldi

Character voice by: Yuuko Kaida

Location: The Castle of Hearts

Vivaldi is the Queen of Hearts. She gets easily irritated and executes people whenever she feels like it. (“Off with the heads!”) She is however, a woman who loves cute things and soft toys but keeps it a secret. She is Blood’s sister. In Joker however, the player cannot capture her heart.

Name: Peter=White

Character voice by: Kouki Miyata

Location: The Castle of Hearts

Peter White is responsible for leading Alice to Wonderland. He is overly obsessed with Alice and loves her too much that Alice does find this to be annoying. Peter is extremely possessive and would shoot anyone who goes near Alice without any hesitations. He will do anything to win Alice’s love and would change into his rabbit form sometimes, to get Alice’s attention. (because Alice likes little animals and their ears)

Name: Ace

Character voice by: Daisuke Hirakawa

Location: The Castle of Hearts

Ace is the Knight of Hearts and the best fighter among all the characters. Despite his silly nature and bad sense of direction, he is a very deadly and unstable man. He does love Alice but wouldn’t mind killing her as well. Ace has a trouble with his role as a knight and is always trying to change that. But with his best friend, Julius the Clock Maker around, Ace becomes more stable and child-like. Though he still likes to spar with the unwilling Gray.

Name: Mary=Gowland

Character voice by: Kenyuu Horiuchi

Location: The Amusement Park

Gowland is the owner of the amusement park. He loves to play with music instruments, particularly his violin (which keeps changing shape), but his performance is absolutely horrible. Gowland is pretty much the happy type of uncle however, he can be quite scary especially when Blood happens to be around. Gowland has a strong hatred for the Mafia boss because he told everyone Gowland’s first name, which he finds to be quite an embarrassing issue. Gowland can’t be captured in Joker.

Name: Boris=Airay

Character voice by: Noriaki Sugiyama

Location: The Amusement Park

Boris, the Cheshire cat who likes riddles — and having Pierce for dinner. He is a fun person and a protective one as well.

Name: Pierce=Villiers

Character voice by: Hoshi Soichiro

Location: The Amusement Park

Pierce, the sleepy doormouse. He doesn’t like Boris because the cat sees him as food. But Pierce likes Peter and Elliot a lot because he feels familiar with them.

Name: Nightmare=Gottschalk

Character voice by: Sugita Tomokazu

Location: Clover Tower

Nightmare is a sickly, mind reading  incubus who vehemently refuses to go to the hospital for his health sake. He is quite arrogant and has the tendency to call himself ‘The Almighty Me’ but the fact is he is such a baby and whines a lot. To take care of his health, Gray resorts to secretly blending medicine into his food. However, there is a mysterious side of him which has not been uncovered yet, a side that is quite dark and scary.

Name: Gray=Ringmarc

Character voice by: Nakai Kazuya

Location: Clover Tower

Gray, the Lizard who works for Nightmare. He is quite a workaholic and tends to push his workers and Nightmare to keep working. Gray by nature, is a kind man who takes care of people and animals. He can be deadly in combat at the same time, for he was once an assassin. When it comes to cooking and art, Gray is very hopeless in this department but he always tries. He does feel inferior to Julius in some ways, especially when it concerns Alice. Gray does not like Ace as well because he keeps attacking him upon sight.

Name: Julius=Monrey

Character voice by: Koyasu Takehito

Location: Clover Tower

Formerly, Julius lived in his Clock Tower but when the world changed to Clover country, he disappeared throughout the sequel. There isn’t a proper explanation on how he got back to the game. Apparently, there is a door leading in to the Clover Tower hence, part of the residence there. Julius Monrey is the only Watch Maker available and by that, he doesn’t fix ordinary clocks. The thing about this world is that the people’s hearts are clocks, so in other words, his job is a mortician. Julius is a very unfriendly and unsociable man. He dislikes going out and regards everything as stupid things. There are only 2 people that he can tolerate which is Ace and Gowland. A lot of people don’t really like Julius as well because of his recluse nature and his role as a mortician.

Name: Joker

Character voice by: Ishida Akira

Location: Circus

Not much is known about him. There are 2 jokers in this story, one being the very modest and polite man, another — a very foul-mouth man who usually comes in a form of a small white mask. The player has to visit him and play a card game with him in order to change the season.

————————————————————————————————–

That’s all for the characters introduction. I’m sorry for being quite thorough because I’m not very acquainted with all the characters. Sheep only know more about Julius and Gray for they are my favorite characters. (Laughs nervously)

So if you don’t mind, sheep wants to blog a little more about Julius~♥ (Laughs)

I love him so much! But I must say, I prefer the way he was in Heart compared to Joker. I’ll tell you why in a moment.

Beneath are some pictures from Julius’s route! ↓

I’m going to be very brief and only provide caption for certain pictures, ok? <^-^>lll And click the images for a bigger view~!

↓↓↓

Here, the squirrels that Gray brought invaded Julius’s room. (Laughs)

Alice persuaded Julius to go for a walk. Here, she kept playing and kicking the fallen leaves. Julius asked what she was doing and she said it was fun. Knowing Julius, he said it was a stupid thing to do but eventually played with the leaves as well until…

Mr Cockblocker interrupted. (Laughs) Blood seems to interrupt couples a lot, I noticed.

The second outing, Alice and Julius came across the twins who fondly teased them about being couples.

Alice managing Julius’s hair while he works.

The third outing was during spring at the Castle of Heart’s territory. Alice wanted to buy a new pajama for Julius. On the way, they bumped into Ace who then gave encouragement to Julius to make his move on Alice.

Buying pajamas. Unfortunately, the shop ran out of female sizes for that pajama design so Julius took the smallest size for guys.

Julius fixing the button properly for Alice and then comes the —

Kiss~♥

In this outing, the boys at the amusement park were commenting on Alice’s bikini. They got too carried away and Julius didn’t like it so he threatened with his wrench. (Laughs)

…His wrench can turn into a pistol!

Anyway, he covered Alice using his jacket and told her not to let other guys see her like that anymore.

My favorite event — The Killer Porridge!

Gray cooked a sweet and purplish porridge for the main role players in Clover Tower. Because I chose to go for Julius, the dialogue differs from Gray and Nightmare’s. In this part, they talked seriously about the upcoming circus event which could be dangerous for Alice. The character that the player pursues will defend and step up for Alice.

Julius got too carried away and ate the killer porridge. ↓

Somehow, it makes me want to cry seeing Julius getting hurt like this. Though Gray sustained a worse injury across his chest, but somehow Julius is more pitiful. He’s just not the fighting type of guy and it’s already saddening that no one likes him. <;__;>

About the ending for Julius’s route, I’m not quite certain if this is it. If you managed to get all 3 of Ace’s friend events, you get an additional part where Ace saves you from Joker.

Guess I have to play one more round to get a proper ending.

I completed Gray and Nightmare’s route. Here are some pictures. I won’t give any summary seeing that someone else has already done it. Click here if you are interested → Gray’s Route

The death stare by Gray! (Laughs)

Nightmare~↓

The starting of Nightmare’s route was very whiny but towards the end, he became somewhat scary. ↓

He tormented one of the hatter’s employees mind for having bad thoughts about him. Then came the cockblocker Blood, for the second time, interrupting Nightmare.

Sheep is getting tired now. Time to wrap this up with a few pictures from the friend events?

Ace’s friend event – Ace goes climbing and the birds starts flocking and pecking him.

Blood’s friend event – Alice visits Blood and read books together.

In the second friend event, the squirrels ‘interrupts’ them. How do you like that now, Blood? Do you like it? Do you? Do you!? (Laughs)

Peter’s friend event – He insists that Alice should stop playing around with dirt but eventually gives in and helps her with the garden. In the third event, Alice comes looking for Peter in the castle but later finds him at the garden. He then presents a pot of flower which he dug out for her.

If you like the story…

RESOURCES

WALKTHROUGH | GUIDE

————————————————————————————————–

About why I love Julius so much in Heart than Joker? Well in Heart, he was more passionate. And I especially like the progress of his characteristic. You see in the beginning whenever you talk to him, he either tells you to get lost or get someone else to play with. Basically, very mean and rude — makes you want to cry. However sooner a later, after you met Ace already, he starts to feel jealous and tries to win you. I really like visiting him towards the end because he starts saying nice things like, “Stop going here and there! Just stay by my side, please?”, which in the beginning was so totally different. (Laughs)

31.  Ms Aya
April 18th, 2011 at 6:09 pm

Dear Lilliane

Why yes.. Would be lovely to be Alice. XD

Julius is such a nice guy! But I think he is much more a passionate lover in Heart than Joker. In Joker, not much ooomph in his love, for someone who disappeared throughout Clover.. thought he would be more — sensitive and jealous.

Dear Soup

Go to the following links:

We are on the same page I tell you~!

There is no explanation as to why Clover tower suddenly take the Clock Tower’s place– it’s a mystery! XD

But I’m just glad Julius is back, aren’t you? :3

He’s so… loving in his own ways. XD

January 18th, 2012 at 2:56 am

I have found a link to where you can get all the games! The site is in Russian but it works great, and for Anniversary and Joker at least you don’t have to even use Daemon Tools.

http://otomegames-anri.at.ua/index/0-14

This is the link to Joker, and it has links to the other games. I hope this works for everyone!

hello! Thank you so much for the “walkthroughs” you do currently have. I was thinking of purchasing the new diamond no kuni no alice for psp, and I’m not sure if it’ll be playing in english when I put in my psp… So I was really hoping you could make a detailed guide for that game once it comes out :) Thank you so much for your time and consideration. have a nice day~
