New Alice in the Country of Hearts Manga Launched Online
posted on by Egan Loo
Manga creator Aoi Kurihara launched a new adaptation of QuinRose's Alice in the Country of Hearts (Heart no Kuni no Alice - Wonderful Wonder World) fantasy romance adventure game on Ichijinsha's Zero-Sum Online site on Thursday. The new manga is called Heart no Kuni no Alice: Koisuru Ibara no Meikyū (Alice in the Country of Hearts: Labyrinth of Thorns in Love), and it is based on QuinRose's loose reinterpretation of Lewis Carroll's novel Alice in Wonderland for female gamers.
The new manga's story begins with the interplay between Alice, the girl taken to the Country of Hearts, and Julius, a watchmaker and the master of the clock tower in which Alice lives. Zero-Sum Online is the web comic site for Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero-Sum magazine, which carries another manga based on a game in QuinRose's franchise, Joker no Kuni no Alice.
Tokyopop published the first Alice in the Country of Hearts (Heart no Kuni no Alice - Wonderful Wonder World) manga adaptation in North America, and Yen Press has since picked up the license. Seven Seas Entertainment announced last month that it licensed the manga adaptations of another game in the franchise, Alice in the Country of Clover (Clover no Kuni no Alice). The Alice in the Country of Hearts: Wonderful Wonder World anime film opened in Japan in July.
