Alice in the Country of Clover: Knight’s Knowledge 3

QuinRose/Sai Asai – Seven Seas Entertainment – 2014 – 3 volumes
Hmm. This wasn’t what I was expecting, but I still liked it. Last volume ended with a rather intense stand-off between Elliot and Ace, which was resolved rather cruelly by Ace at the beginning of this volume. Elliot takes a beating later, presumably for losing to Ace. But then… not much comes of that?
Not much comes of the mystery surrounding Ace, either. He makes a few well-placed comments that explain some things, and then Alice states an interpretation that explains others. I don’t know if that wipes away what a creep he’s been. And he’s still a creep, when all is said and done, but Alice seems prepared to deal with that. That’s… nice?
I did like the end of the story here. There was an unlooked-for conflict that wrapped everything up with a dramatic flair. Lovely.
Overall a nice series, and I like the slightly longer ones like this. I wish this had resolved Ace’s creepiness a little better, though. I’m curious how the Ace one-shot will handle it.
