The North American manga publisher Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Friday that it licensed Mamenosuke Fujimaru’s game spinoff manga Alice in the Country of Clover (Clover no Kuni no Alice) and Kent Minami and Nozomu Tamaki’s Angel Para Bellum. Alice in the Country of Clover will launch with the single-volume story Bloody Twins next June, while Angel Para Bellum will launch next July.
The ongoing Alice in the Country of Clover manga is inspired by the game of the same name. The game studio QuinRose created this fantasy romance adventure game after Alice in the Country of Hearts (Heart no Kuni no Alice ~Wonderful Wonder World~); both games are loose interpretations of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland for female gamers. Tokyopop published the manga version of Alice in the Country of Hearts, and Yen Press has since picked up the license. Seven Seas describes the story of Alice in the Country of Clover: Bloody Twins:
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum are the “Bloody Twins,” amorous and affable killers who are able to transform themselves into adorable children or suavely handsome adults. As the gatekeepers to the Hatter Mansion, they tried to kill Alice once. Now they are hopelessly in love with her. Will either Dee or Dum win Alice’s affections, and more importantly…will she survive their screwball courtship?
A war between heaven and hell is brewing and only a young man named Mitsuru holds the key to prevent it. Yet Mitsuru is unaware of his secret birthright and his role in the battle between angels and demons. All he knows is that his family is dead and Kyrie, the kindly woman who cared for him in his time of mourning, is not what she seems. Now, with demon attackers seeking to destroy him at every turn, his only protection is two beautiful gun-wielding angels who kick ass like nobody’s business.
