Alice in the Country of Joker: Circus and Liar’s Game 6

Okay, I JUST got it. This is technically a spoiler, but it’s also not explicitly stated? I’ll mark it just in case, but I feel like I would have been better served with this information sooner.
Peter is “Sunday Afternoon” because apparently they all represent time? And apparently he can’t be hurt because he is a “time past” now? I doubt we’ll get much more than that out of this story. I wish more of these games were translated into English! I’d love to play this one, it’s not translating into manga form very well.
This one got all kinds of serious. Alice is forced (for real this time) to choose, and to live with her decision. It does go into the meaning behind her sister in the prison at the circus, and it’s… a little interesting.
Most interesting of all, however, is how this volume ends. I’m not sure how there’s another volume’s worth of content left? Unless she becomes one of them? The way she found herself in that situation is most heartbreaking. And a little nonsensical (if she were guilty, would she have come back?). But then again, it’s the Country of Joker, so it doesn’t have to make sense.
