About this deal

The first OVA episode was bundled with the limited edition of the 12th volume of the manga on October 17, 2014. Hikari Kuina ( 水鶏 光, Kuina Hikari ) / The Caterpillar Portrayed by: Aya Asahina A member of the Beach who works with Chishiya to steal the deck of cards; however, the two fall out when he betrays them, so she abandons him in favor of working with Arisu and Usagi. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). Hayato Dōdō ( 堂道 隼人, Dōdō Hayato) / The Dodo Bird A highschooler Arisu saves in the Four of Hearts game who later partners with Aguni and Akane, who he grows close with. As he struggles to exist in a world that can’t be bothered with him, Ryohei feels like everything would be better if he were anywhere else.

Arisu (the “Alice” of the title - there’s no “L” in the Japanese alphabet so “Arisu” is the closest they can get to pronouncing “Alice”) is an unremarkable teenager, Chota is the annoying pervy mate and Karube is the strong silent type - all three are manga archetypes. Fingers crossed that both these series receive English serialization in 2023 after the live-action Netflix series teased a potential third season. The battle against the King of Clubs continues as Arisu and his team struggle to make up for their shocking point deficit. These characters are introduced after a problem for Chota leaves Arisu and Karube to enter their next game, the Five of Spades, which is told across the equivalent of four comic book issues in this collection, and features a villain in a horse mask. One night, he’s out in Tokyo with two friends, and shortly before sunrise the three of them witness a fireworks display.

In the manga, he made a brief appearance to Arisu moments before he gets teleported back home, asking him whether he is a God or a Devil, to which Arisu responds he is an "Intermediator". After hanging out at a bar, Arisu and his best friends, Daikichi Karube and Chouta Segawa, wait for the first train to arrive in the morning. Aso’s illustrations here showing the method of destroying the players by the otherworldly villain in a “game over” situation defines the look of those pinpoint lasers adapted for the show.

Another high point arrives, the great car chase that occurs in the first episode of season 2 of the streaming series is the final scene of this volume.Where the last chapter left us, Arisu was imprisoned at the Beach while a game of “Witch Hunt” meant the Beach’s militant faction was killing off residents one by one to find the murderer of a young woman in the hotel lobby. Due to his addictions in video games, he was shown to be a skilled analyzer, solving puzzles and pattern on the games and specializes in playing heart games.
