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

July 5, 2015

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.
