Are you Alice? - Bug in someone's ear

Yes yes yes, I finally missed a news post. My excuse is that there was a lot to do. Lot's of nomikai mostly... Meanwhile we've already reached the time of month that is packed with new releases. I predict overwork xD

Are you Alice? - Bug in someone's ear

Company: IM Label
Based on: Original
Released: 2011.07.20
Official Site: http://imlabel.jp/alice/

In Are you Alice a male Alice wanders into wonderland and is subsequently involved in 'the game to kill the white rabbit'. Alice his story is told in three drama CDs - Drink me, Check Mate, and Call me- but there are several expansions to the story. This is one of the side dramas for Are you Alice?, it came with the limited edition of the 4th manga.

The story starts with the caterpillar (CV: Sakuma Rei) lamenting that the world is empty without Alice (CV: Sakurai Takahiro) and the Hatter (CV: Hirata Hiroaki), and consequently runs into them. Alice seems to be rather depressed, not to mention slightly broken all because... he ate a piece of shortcake that belonged to the Mad Hatter. Who is making Alice go through hell for it. And thus begins the epic quest in search for the shortcake!!

As you expect, non-sense all over the place. Together with puns based on "mushi" (caterpillar is imomushi in Japanese). The caterpillar randomly acts much to sexy, Alice turns into a shortcake maniac. Also the implications of whipped cream all over the place are... Somehow between it all Alice also tries to find the perfect bride, but sadly there aren't many candidates. 

At times it seems like something serious and deep is going to be said, but the randomness always wins. Which is a good thing. (although I would like to hear a more serious story again once in a while).

For a bonus this was a surprisingly long drama, almost 30min. But nonsensical as always which is what I love. The dialogue is pretty fast at times though, which might make it difficult to follow at times.
