「What’re ya grinning about? You’re being creepier than usual.」
「Fufufu, I got chocolate from Alice.
I’m in the middle of thinking of her return gift.
What to give~? Fufufu」
(…… I probably shouldn’t tell him that I got one too.
I mean, that woman was practically handing ‘em out.
It looked like she was makin’ rounds)
「Well, White Day’s in a month. You have plenty of time to think about it.」
That reminds me, on White day you can give marshmallows, chocolate or candy.
Depending on what you give has a different meaning…..
Hey, what am I supposed to give her?」
「Haa? Heck would I know?」
「Huuh~? You don’t know?」
「It would be weirder if I knew!」
「But I don’t know all the details either!
Which one is obligatory, which one is for lovers, they all had different meanings…. Family, friend, or lovers I think? Was it something like that??? 」
「How the hell would I know」
「But it has to be important if there’s a distinction between them. I don’t want to make a mistake… What would you give, Joker?」
「*sigh*……Too much hassle.
She likes sweets so she’d be happy with anything. … I’d just give her all of ‘em.」
「……’Cause it’d be a pain choose.」
……Joker, you reaaaaally like Alice, don’t you?」
「Huh……? WHAT!? What do you mean, Joker?!」
Doesn’t that mean you want to become her family, friend, and lover?
(Ohohoho such an adorable story, I just had to translate it ‘cause Joker needs some love~ :3
Drawn by Fujimaru-sensei and written by Satsuki Kou, the head writer of the Alice series so I automatically love whatever she touches XD)
My thoughts on Joker under the cut contains spoilers, but go ahead if you’ve played the games. ^^ (HnK, Jnk and Joker’s OnK route)
Joker’s profile from the Daiya no Kuni no Alice ~Wonderful Wonder World~ Visual Fan Book.
The latest edition of V-Jump comes with a supplement to the KnB Character Bible, containing (among other things) brand new profiles of the Rakuzan starters, Haizaki, Nijimura and Ogiwara.
This post only contains information that I’m confident about. I will update it as I obtain more info (hence the ‘read more’ cut). I’ve decided to buy my own copy, so when that arrives I’ll be able to include all the parts that I’ve missed. Things in square brackets are additional notes by me.

Soooo… it’s been a few weeks since Voca and I have released a Friday 4-koma. We’ve had various reasons for this, but either way we’re pleased to be able to give you all at least this much!
This 4-koma is from the Mirror World fanbook, which is why Ace looks older than he does in the others we have released. That is also why Sidney is coming to pick up Ace from the Art Museum- Ace lives at the Castle of Diamonds.
Now, the Mirror World 4-komas are all one continuous story, meaning that this comic makes more sense in context, but we just found this one too funny and cute to not throw out there. You can probably figure out what Sidney’s deal is here without me giving a detailed explanation!
Please enjoy! Remember, this is a fan translated work and is not available (at this time) for sale in English!
If you would like to support our scanlation group’s translation efforts, Mad Hatter Scans is always accepting donations of any size, 100% of which go to purchasing manga to translate for your viewing. More often than not we find ourselves using our own money, and it’s expensive! We would never withhold releases to get more donations or anything like that, but donations do prompt us to work a little faster ;D
I realized I was this close to only making something for Sumeragi this Valentine… I had to fix that ASAP.
And finally it is here!! The first chapter of Alice Love Fables ~Rose Petit Coeur~ which is a collection of stories about various Wonderland characters from the Alice series, featuring Kawahara Ren’s super cute art. The book contains standalone stories of multiple pairings, and this is the first chapter with a BloodxAlice pairing. We plan to translate the whole book eventually, so cheer for us! ^o^
Alice Love Fables ~Rose Petit Coeur~
Chapter 1- Love is like an hourglass (Blood X Alice)
Harroe - Raws, Cleaner, Editor.
Summary: "Two cynical pessimists can’t keep their hands off of each other, the series~" (as Harroe puts it XD)
It was a regular day at the Hatter mansion- Alice being overly serious about her work while her overly amorous boss/lover(?) keeps nudging her, trying to get her to spend time with him. His childish antics make her lash out, but will she regret her actions later?
Please enjoy the scanalation and do not re-upload anywhere else. We have made sure to have an online reader option and a download available for everyone’s needs. Feel free to use anything you see for graphics purposes.
This is my first non-group project, and I’d like to thank my partner-in-crime harroe for being awesome and wonderful who not only provided the raws but also assisted in cleaning and helped my translations flow smoother. She held my hand when I struggled through the devilish redraws (the color pages, man -dies-) and you all need to send her sexy Joker valentines to appreciate her! My other friends also offered advice (Tori~) or simply endured my whining (Ellis~) so bless their big hearts too ;A;
