Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday S announced on Wednesday that Haro Asō's Alice in Borderland (Imawa no Kuni no Alice) manga is entering its last arc. The magazine also announced that the series will be transferred from Shōnen Sunday S to Weekly Shonen Sunday beginning with the 19th issue on April 8.
The 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 right off the bat. The three fight to live, as well as find a way back to their own world.
Asō began serializing the manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday S (formerly Shōnen Sunday Chō) in 2010. The manga's 12th, 13th, and 14th volumes shipped with original video anime (OVA) episodes.
The spinoff series, Alice in Borderland: Chi no Kyokuchi - Daiya no King-hen ran from October to February in Weekly Shonen Sunday. A special chapter will debut in the 19th issue.
