North American publisher Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Monday that it licensed Ayumi Kanou's I Am Alice: Bodyswap in Wonderland (Ore Alice ~Danjo Gyakuten~) manga series. Seven Seas will begin publishing the series next September.
The manga series adapts the story from Ore Alice, Visualworks' 2011 mobile simulation game for women. Kanou not only drew the manga, but also contributed to the character designs and still illustrations in the game itself.
One afternoon, Makoto is pestered by his little sister into going to the library. He chooses a picture book and is suddenly sucked into the book. He wakes up in the world of Alice of Wonderland — as Alice. To return home, Makoto/Alice embarks on a journey and meets:
The King of Hearts
The King of Hearts' attendant
Kanou launched the manga in the November 2012 issue of Media Factory's Monthly Comic Gene magazine, and Media Factory is publishing the third volume on Wednesday.
Seven Seas also publishes Kanou's Dictatorial Grimoire: Cinderella manga. Bandai Entertainment licensed Kanou's Tales of the Abyss: Jade's Secret Memories manga adaptation of the Tales of the Abyss game, but the release was cancelled when Bandai Entertainment stopped releasing new manga titles last year.
