Manga by Are You Alice? writer centers on executioner who finds himself in hell

The October issue of Kodansha's ARIA magazine revealed on Friday that Ai Ninomiya, Ikuhiro Nao, and Kinako's Oyasumi Jack the Ripper manga is getting a stage play adaptation. Nao draws the manga based on Ninomiya's (Are You Alice?) original work, and Kinako (Gatchaman Crowds) drew the original character designs. Kodansha will reveal more details about the stage play adaptation in the November issue.

The manga's original announcement had teased the story as follows:

One day young Monsieur de Paris (executioner) Edward wakes up and finds himself in hell... Among the various monsters that are running rampant, Ed meets "that man" who once disturbed the surface world!?

The trio launched the manga in ARIA in the magazine's August issue on June 27. The manga's announcement had originally listed the series under the tentative title Salon de Jack the Ripper.

Ninomiya and artist Ikumi Katagiri ended their Are You Alice? manga series in Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Zero-Sum on June 27. Yen Press publishes the manga in North America.
