Kagihime Monogatari Eikyū Alice Rondo (鍵姫物語 永久アリス輪舞曲?, lit. Key Princess Story: Eternal Alice Rondo), or simply Kagihime, is a manga written by Kaishaku. The manga was serialised in Dengeki Daioh. A 2006 thirteen episode anime produced by Trinet Entertainment was adapted from the manga. Kagihime is one of many anime works influenced by Alice in Wonderland as the story focuses on the completion of a third Alice book, The Eternal Alice. The author of the Alice books, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, is referred to as L. Takion and not as his actual pen name Lewis Carroll for reasons unexplained.

Kagihime is the story of Kirihara Aruto, an Ordinary High School Student with an interest in The Eternal Alice. There are two volumes of Takion's story, and rumors of the existence of a third. One night, after working on his own continuation of the story (Fanfic, anyone?), he sees the form of a girl flash across the moon... a girl who happens to look exactly like what he imagines Alice should look like. He runs out of the house to chase her, and ends up in a library where the girl he was chasing is locked in combat with another girl who is similarly garbed. Because of this, he becomes involved with several girls called the Seekers of Alice.

The show aired in early 2006. Compare with Rozen Maiden
