“Vector: “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” -> “Sakura in Wonderland”

“Sakura in Wonderland” is a Japanese anime episode( season 3 episode 55) that was inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The anime is called Card Captors Sakura. Sakura is sitting alone in a bench  reading a copy of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”. Then one of her friends named Eli comes up to her and hands her a leave so she can use as a bookmark( which he puts a spell on). Then Sakura and her friends go to the library to finish up reading their books, however as soon as Sakura opens the book and touches the bookmark she gets sucked in by the book. She then realizes she is in a different place and tires to find a way out. All her friends are dressed as the characters in the book and all have the same role as they do in the original story.

The differences used in this mini-version of Alice was that Sakura used cards which were called the big and the little cards( changed her size) to help her get out of the story. Instead of falling into a rabbit hole Sakura has a leave which has a spell which makes her become Alice in real life. Sakura  manages to find a way out by flying up to the sky where the leave was and going into the leave and she is back in the library. Obviously, it is not detailed as the original, however it does a good job of summarizing “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”.

    Huh. So Card Captors is sort of like Pokemon with cards, right? Kind of like Yu-gi-oh? I can’t recall if I’ve ever seen it, but it sounds familiar based on I think a commercial I’ve seen for it.

    If so, then cards make a pretty relevant connection to Alice, since in both texts cards become entities and combatants in ways that are relevant to their pictorial content. Interesting.
