Flower Clocks has released their scanlation of Alice in Twin World: Love, Storms, and Flower Clocks. Chapter one is here:
I’m soooo happy. I actually had this manga on pre-order on amazon but it was never released in English. It turns out that since Quinrose went bankrupt, the US publisher is dropped it. Btw, if Seven Seas is reading this post, I still wanna buy this manga in English!
This first chapter is sweet! It’s the Julius and Alice pairing and it’s the first (and only?) manga set in the Alice in the Country of Hearts ~ Wonderful Twin World ~ timeline. That timeline is a continuation/sequel of Alice in the Country of Hearts. The ending of chapter 1 is a particularly nice touch. I can’t wait to read chapter two.
The art is to die for! The cover is in color and it also has four colored inner pages. It’s drawn by Sai Asai, the same artist who drew the art in Alice in the Country of Clover: Knight’s Knowledge (the one with the Ace x Alice pairing). Julius looks particularly good. I like how the artist is nto afraid to make Julius’ grumpy face look really grumpy and not just the “cutely annoyed” look that most shoujo manga use.
Zing! Not a spoiler: the upcoming storm is going to be crazy! I know because I’ve read about the Twin World game.
