Is Vanitas No Carte Connected To Pandora Hearts

Who has not fallen in love with Mochizuki Jun's stories? Her character designs and world-building are something that makes you say "wow" every time you see a panel from her manga. The most famous Mochizuki Jun's story is Pandora Hearts, a gripping manga that makes you want to have more of it. Sadly, the anime adaptation did not make this story shine like it should have done and thus, ended up disappointing many of us. On the other hand, we have Vanitas no Carte and as we should have expected, it is another enchanting story and luckily, the anime adaptation made by Studio BONES was a masterpiece. Many fans' theories say Pandora Hearts and Vanitas no Carte are connected in some aspects. That is why I wanted to make a brief comparison between these two stories to see if they could be connected or not. World and characters: are there similarities? When Vanitas no Carte came out, we could find some similarities with Pandora Hearts characters, such as personalities or reactions. Many people compared the character designs, but we need to keep in mind that these stories are creations of the same author and thus, the art can be pretty similar in some respects. First of all, I do not really like comparing characters, but I cannot deny that there are certain similarities between some characters.

I also got almost the same vibes from Elliot Nightray (PH) and Jeanne (VnC).

Still, each character is a whole world apart and I like to think that they are unique even if they have some similar traits. The first resemblance that I could find between characters were Alice's (PH) and Vanitas' (VnC) personalities. Both may seem like arrogant characters at first, but also, they have some shy and cute traits. Alice and Vanitas are shrouded in mystery and at first, we do not know much about their pasts or real intentions. Well… Alice lost her memories, but about Vanitas, we do not know many details about his past (at least not in the anime). Can I point out that Alice and Noé share the same love for food and both of them are cute characters? I needed to say that ehe. I also got almost the same vibes from Elliot Nightray (PH) and Jeanne (VnC). Both characters are "righteous people" who would help in any situation if they are needed. It does not matter if they should not help someone, they will do it anyways. Vincent (PH) and Louis (VnC) were also good boys when they were kids, but as time passed, both started to develop cruel personalities.

The other two that I cannot help but think that share similarities are Jack (PH) and Roland (VnC). Both have that optimistic and cheerful personality that you might love or hate, but they also can be pretty serious if the occasion requires it (plus they are blonde with green eyes). So far, I don't think the two worlds are similar, and I do not think they are in the same universe. Both stories are set in XIX Century, but Pandora Hearts is not placed in our world, but Mochizuki Jun used England as inspiration, while Vanitas no Carte is set in Paris, France. But Vanitas no Carte has mentioned or put some elements and names from Pandora Hearts in its world. The Facebook page "Vanitas no Carte - Les Mémoires de Vanitas" shared an image with zoomed panels from Vanitas no Carte's manga where we could see some references from Pandora Hearts. In chapter 14 of the manga and anime's episode 8, Vanitas encounters Roland in the catacombs. Vanitas introduced himself as "Vincent" and Noé as "Gilbert".

39;s Jun works feel the same way as me.

Vincent and Vanitas have suffered severe abuses in their childhood and both have cold and manipulative personalities. Vanitas introduces Noé as Gilbert (Gilbert was Oz's servant). I found it funny because I thought it was related to the way Vanitas treats Noah like a servant sometimes. I see what you are doing Jun! There is an official art in Pandora Hearts artbook where we can see Oz and Vanitas waving goodbye to each other. To be honest, when I saw that image, I wanted to cry because I felt nostalgic. I interpreted it as the end of Pandora Hearts era and a welcome to Vanitas no Carte era. Could it be that The Abyss is the power source of both worlds? Well… as we know in Pandora Hearts, there is something known as The Abyss, which is the power source of every dimension within the Dimensional Plane. It has the power to alter and manipulate each of these dimensions. The core of The Abyss creates different dimensions. In each dimension, there are Jurors who act as observers and have the duty to record every event that takes place in the world under their watch. Anything can happen in The Abyss, so I would not be surprised if Vanitas no Carte's world is a creation from there and if that option is possible, there will be Jurors too. However, that was not mentioned in Vanitas no Carte's manga till now and I am skeptical about this possibility. If I have to be honest, I do not really think Pandora Hearts and Vanitas no Carte are connected unless the theory about the Abyss and Jurors could be real… But even if that is true, these two worlds would not be related at all. I truly love both stories and I know that people who follow Michizuki's Jun works feel the same way as me. The manga art and stories are some of the best that I have seen and read, but in terms of anime adaptations, I will side with Vanitas no Carte for the time being. However, I really think that Pandora Hearts deserves a better anime adaptation (fingers crossed for a remake version).

Sword Art Online is a Japanese light novel series written by Reki Kawahara with accompanying illustrations drawn by abec. The series takes place in the near-future and focuses on various virtual reality MMORPG worlds. ASCII Media Works began publishing the novels on April 10, 2009 under their Dengeki Bunko imprint. Russia. With more than 16 million copies in print worldwide, there are future plans for publications in Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Vietnam and others. Kawahara also began writing a parallel series of light novels titled Sword Art Online: Progressive, a spin-off that focuses on the clearing of Aincrad, unlike the Aincrad stories of the main series. As of June 10, 2021, eight volumes have been published as part of the Progressive series. In addition to the original storyline of Sword Art Online and Sword Art Online: Progressive, Kawahara has also written and published Sword Art Online side stories. Accel World, have been sold at Comitia, Dengeki Bunko's Fair and have come along with the limited edition Blu-Ray/DVD Sword Art Online compilation volumes.

Before Sword Art Online was published, Kawahara had posted Sword Art Online novels on his website and there are still a few side stories on Sword Art Online, although the original novels have been removed. In addition, Kawahara has published a side story of Sword Art Online in one of his other works, Accel World. In the tenth volume of Accel World, there is a chapter where it depicts a cross over between Sword Art Online and Accel World. Several of the side stories that he has released are in a collection called the Sword Art Online Material Edition, sold at the Comitia dōjinshi-selling event, which range from novels to manga. However, all of the art in the Material Editions is drawn by Kawahara himself. Aside from the light novels written by Kawahara, there are also two spin-offs written by other authors with supervision by him. The first one is Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online series written by Keiichi Sigsawa and illustrated by Kouhaku Kuroboshi, while the other is Sword Art Online Alternative: Clover's Regret, written by Watase Souichirou and illustrated by Ginta. While both of these series take place in the same world as the main series written by Kawahara, they each feature different characters as the focus compared to the main series.
