Alice in the Country of Joker: Circus and Liar’s Game 5
October 4, 2015
QuinRose/Mamenosuke Fujimaru – Seven Seas Entertainment – 2014 – 7 volumes
Basically, things heat up between Alice and Blood. It’s… pretty mutual at this point, although I still have some doubts about Blood. We get some flashbacks from the Country of Hearts, too.
It’s implied that, because Alice has made a decision, the Jokers may no longer harass her, and April season may be coming to an end. But there’s still the matter of the jail, and what she wants to free from that jail, and what it is that she’s doing bad. Though that might be that she’s lying to herself about wanting to go back home and feeling guilty about her sister. Especially with Blood… she apparently doesn’t want to free her sister in the Country of Joker, since it’s implied that since Blood looks like the teacher she had a crush on that fell in love with her sister, Blood may fall in love with her sister as well if she appears in this world.
Still lots of vagueness. We also sneak a peek at the executioner, I think? Here, he looks like Ace in different clothes, which is also what all signs point to in this series so far. Some other artwork makes it look like a different character, but I’m not sure if that’s because he is, or if it’s because the artwork isn’t by Fujimaru.
Still not a lot of clues… this is a short review since I want to get to the next volume.
