Alice in the Country of Hearts: The Clockmaker's Story - QuinRose, Mamenosuke Fujimaru, Angela Liu

So this book just suddenly liked to state that "Men are still Men" in this dream, meaning they have "urges". Basically this is Alice's dream yet all the men are uncontrollable monsters. Including Julius who seems to be not interested in romance or love. It's a pile of bullshit.
