Miyuki-chan in Wonderland (不思議の国の美幸ちゃん Fushigi no Kuni no Miyuki-chan?) is a yuri manga series created by Clamp and serialised by Kadokawa Shoten in its Japanese edition of Newtype from 1993 to 1995. In 1995, an image album and an OVA version of the first two stories was released. The English language version of the manga was published by Tokyopop in 2003.
The manga is an erotic, lesbian rendition of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The series focuses on Miyuki, a Japanese schoolgirl who finds herself pulled into several nonsensical worlds populated by scantily-dressed females who want to have their way with her.
- Miyuki (美幸?)
- Voiced by: Mariko Kōda
- An average yet pretty school girl. She appears to be pretty bright, if a bit scatterbrained. She's also very innocent, claiming to have never even had a boyfriend before. So when she lands in several strange worlds filled with pretty women trying to "get to know her better," she becomes very panicky and wishes for nothing more than to return home.
- Miyuki's travels lead her to seven different worlds.
- Voiced by: Yuko Nagashima
- As Miyuki runs to school, Bunny-san, dressed like a playboy bunny, rushes by on her skateboard shouting about "it" being late, and strangely, listens to a Walkman. Because of this distraction, Miyuki doesn't notice herself falling into a hole with the strange lady until it's too late. She is seen again at the end of the story as Miyuki's being chased and when the events repeat.
- Bunny-San is analogue to the White Rabbit.

- Voiced by: Emi Shinohara
- One of three showgirl-like women who try to get Miyuki to join them for tea. She wears a top hat and a women-style tuxedo that barely covers her body, and fishnet stocking (manga only). She wears a pair of blue boots in the anime, instead of the stocking. She has red hair in an elaborate bun. When asked by Miyuki where she is, all she says is that she is "here." In the manga, Miyuki runs away after turning down the offer for tea; in the anime, she's forced to sit and enjoy it as the Hatter tries to go up her shirt.

Upon learning Miyuki's name, she cracks her whip and orders her to kneel down & lick her boots when talking to her. She ends up chasing Miyuki as she cracks her whip, laughing maniacally.

In the anime she plays against Miyuki in a game of chess, she controlling the red/black pieces and Miyuki the white/blue ones. In the end she ends up losing and takes off her clothes, even as Miyuki protests (not wanting someone who's basically herself to strip.) After Miyuki returns, her reflection goes back to normal, except for the very last three seconds when she turns around (Miyuki was facing away from the mirror) and gives us the victory sign.
