posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's tenth issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine ended the Alice in Borderland Chi no Kyokuchi - Daiya no King-hen (Land of Wisdom - King of Diamonds Arc) manga on Wednesday along with an announcement that Alice in Borderland will get a special chapter in the 19th issue on April 8.
Alice in Borderland Chi no Kyokuchi - Daiya no King-hen (Land of Wisdom - King of Diamonds Arc) began last October as a spinoff of Haro Asō's Alice in Borderland (Imawa no Kuni no Alice) manga series.
The main Alice in Borderland (Imawa no Kuni no Alice) manga revolves around Ryōhei Arisu (pronounced the same way in Japanese as "Alice"), a male high school student who is irritated with his intolerable everyday life. One night, he tags along with his bad friend Karube and Chōbe to hang out in town. However, the town is suddenly covered in giant fireworks, and when he came to his senses, Ryōhei noticed that no one else was around. Finding themselves in a different world, Ryōhei, Karube, and Chota are forced to participate in survival games, or die off the bat. The three fight to live, as well as find a way back to their own world.
Asō began serializing the main manga in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday S (formerly Shonen Sunday Chō) in 2010. The manga's 12th and 13th volumes shipped with original video anime (OVA) episodes. The 14th volume will ship on February 18 in Japan with the third OVA episode.
