I’m going to be honest, I didn’t read much about this prior and Crunchyroll has no synopsis on it. Pretty much what I got its vaguely Alice in Wonderland inspired characters kept in research facility and one escapes. Not sure what else this is about at this point or whether it is going to be slice of life with some supernatural elements in the background or if we are actually going to follow the story of bringing down the research facility, or why there are Yakuza somehow involved.
I don’t mind going in to things blind but this one took me a bit by surprise. From the title I was kind of expecting another variation on Alice in Wonderland themed anime and it certainly is that, though the content seems fairly far removed from Alice. I wasn’t expecting the first episode to be 45 minutes and I honestly didn’t have a clue where this episode was going. It is enjoyable enough and we are introduced to the characters but I think the overall plot is going to take a little bit more before it becomes clear what this is trying to be. I’m certainly interested in what I saw this episode but there’s so many different ways this could develop from here that I’d hesitate to say that I’m sold on this yet.
Alice & Zoroku is available on Crunchyroll.
