Hi guys, here I am again, writing an ext about the Alice in the country of mind manga. I have already written three reviews about it:

" data-medium-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-alice1.jpg?w=300" data-large-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-alice1.jpg?w=500" class="size-full wp-image-352" src="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-alice1.jpg?w=723" alt="Ace and also Alice" srcset="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-alice1.jpg 500w, https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-alice1.jpg?w=150 150w, https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-alice1.jpg?w=300 300w" sizes="(max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px" />Ace and Alice. The is smiling together usual.Today, I have a different topic in mind. Below I will talk about the backstory the Ace, the knight of Hearts.

You are watching: Ace alice in the country of hearts

Warning: This article will contain huge spoilers because that the entire series.

As ns was analysis the assorted manga, i was win by every one of the strange and violent points Ace does. For example, there is this small gem indigenous “Alice in the nation of Hearts” manga:

" data-medium-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-kill.jpg?w=300" data-large-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-kill.jpg?w=300" class="size-full wp-image-353" src="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-kill.jpg?w=723" alt="Ace" srcset="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-kill.jpg 300w, https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-kill.jpg?w=150 150w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" />Smiling while speak that, what is wrong v Ace?Why exactly is he always threatening people? In the manga the explanation is nice simple. The considers life in Wonderland meaningless and all the civilization replaceable. He hates his duty so he acts out in order come rebel fruitlessly against the rule of the world.

In a conversation through Vivaldi, the Queen that Hearts and also Ace’s boss, she explains to Alice that functions in their human being are just offered to the roleholders and also they have actually no selection about it. Vivaldi is the Queen due to the fact that she was offered that role. She doesn’t particularly like it and also would refuse if that were possible – however it’s not. Follow to her, there room some who enjoy their roles and some who do not. She mentions Ace as an example:

" data-medium-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/vivaldi-amused.jpg?w=300" data-large-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/vivaldi-amused.jpg?w=539" class="size-full wp-image-354" src="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/vivaldi-amused.jpg?w=723" alt="Vivaldi is amused" srcset="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/vivaldi-amused.jpg 539w, https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/vivaldi-amused.jpg?w=150 150w, https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/vivaldi-amused.jpg?w=300 300w" sizes="(max-width: 539px) 100vw, 539px" />In reality is looks prefer Vivaldi is actually somewhat sympathetic come Ace’s struggle yet at the exact same time she is “darkly amused” through it.That is what the manga has revealed so far. Now, here are the vast spoilers!

The Alice manga series is an adaptation that the visual novel/otome games. In among the many recent publication “Alice in the nation of Diamonds” a most Ace’s backstory is revealed.

Last warning: you can want come skip analysis this due to the fact that it has actually not to be revealed in the manga yet. It’s also an extremely sad. You could actually be happier *not* knowing all of this. As soon as you know about Ace’s story, everything you check out will now be fancy by the knowledge. Like, dialogue that seems pretty an easy and plain will all of sudden become very ominous and scary.

Take this panel, for example (image below):

" data-medium-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/decision.jpg?w=211" data-large-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/decision.jpg?w=211" class="size-full wp-image-357" src="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/decision.jpg?w=723" alt="Ace about decisions" srcset="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/decision.jpg 211w, https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/decision.jpg?w=150 150w" sizes="(max-width: 211px) 100vw, 211px" />Ace talking around second-guessing decisionsThe paper definition of the panel over is that Ace and also Alice space lost. Alice claimed they should have actually taken the other path and also Ace claims “Nah . . . Knights can’t second-guess their decisions.”

On the surface, he is just talking about them gaining lost, right? however once i read about his backstory, all of the dialogue like this has come to be monstrously sad.


Since the “Alice in the country of Diamonds” (Diamond no Kuni No Alice) video game isn’t even accessible in English, I had to check out the pan translations. In particular, this blog short article summarizes precisely what the transaction is v Ace. And also it’s heartbreaking.

The story:

" data-medium-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/julius-child-ace.jpg?w=203" data-large-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/julius-child-ace.jpg?w=203" class="wp-image-370 size-full" src="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/julius-child-ace.jpg?w=723" alt="Julius and also the child Ace" srcset="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/julius-child-ace.jpg 203w, https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/julius-child-ace.jpg?w=102 102w" sizes="(max-width: 203px) 100vw, 203px" />Julius and also the child AceOriginally Ace was an Outsider prefer Alice. The was simply a child who was every alone and had shed someone important to him. Then Julius appeared and also took Ace with him come Wonderland. (Just together Peter take it Alice come Wonderland.) Julius and Ace became an extremely close. They to be happy.

That part was really sweet. Julius was no a grump. Ace to be a sweet, love child and also they seemed to have actually a pretty parent-son dynamic. Ace end to it is in an Outsider since he totally embraced Wonderland and became on that its inhabitants. He and Julius to be both roleholders return the game doesn’t to speak what their roles were.

" data-medium-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-of-hearts.jpg?w=193" data-large-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-of-hearts.jpg?w=225" class="size-full wp-image-365" src="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-of-hearts.jpg?w=723" alt="Ace that Hearts" srcset="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-of-hearts.jpg 225w, https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-of-hearts.jpg?w=96 96w" sizes="(max-width: 225px) 100vw, 225px" />I’m talking around this guy, Ace that HeartsHowever, someday Julius was killed.

“What! but how can Julius die as soon as he is still alive in the various other games?” was my reaction.

It seems that Wonderland is not just one place but a ton of alternative timelines and worlds. There are numerous AU versions of Julius and also Ace. In the timeline, Julius died.

Ace was devastated. When the executioner arrived and wanted to collection Julius’ clock, Ace went ballistic and killed him.

Then Joker appeared and, seeing together Ace to be so strong, offered Ace the executioner job. Ace i agreeed to take the job, however with one condition. The executioner and the clockmaker work-related together come retrieve and fix damaged clocks. Ace was willing to come to be the executioner if Julius to be made into the clockmaker. The way, lock would always be working together.

Now, one thing to mental is the Julius was already dead in that timeline. Ace’s cheap would have no result on that. That Julius is dead and also he is never coming back. Hence, this panel in “Alice in the country of Diamonds: Junk box Diamonds” in which Ace talks around his strength:

" data-medium-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-junkbox.jpg?w=300" data-large-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-junkbox.jpg?w=300" class="size-full wp-image-361" src="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-junkbox.jpg?w=723" alt="Ace in Alice in the nation of Diamonds: Junk box Diamonds " srcset="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-junkbox.jpg 300w, https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/ace-junkbox.jpg?w=150 150w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" />Ace in “Alice in the nation of Diamonds: Junk crate Diamonds”Ace quote: “There is no definition in becoming stronger if friend have already lost what is priceless to you.”

To continue the story: Joker i agree to do all the wonderland execution of Ace into the executioner and also (all that the still living) Julius versions the clockmaker, but only if Ace happen a test. Joker then confirmed himself to it is in a thoroughly ruthless person. The test was that to come to be the executioner, Ace should kill Julius.

As noted, Ace’s lover father figure was already dead. Therefore, he had actually to take trip to a different alternate Wonderland to death a various Julius.

And… he does.

Also Joker was surprised due to the fact that Ace didn’t even hesitate.

The son Ace’s sword slide to the floor, and stopped ~ hitting the wall. Come the boy, staggering while pressing his stomach, the adult Ace stated this:

Ace: You’re weak. Exactly how powerless, can not to safeguard the sole human being you wanted to protect.

Tormenting words. He sneered at his very own past self.

Ace: Hey… You understand that Julius died because of you? It’s your fault.

It was if he to be tormenting himself. Not only this son here, yet he himself, who had actually been unable to protect Julius in one more place.

Ace:…. From now on, girlfriend should constantly suffer. (from the fan translation)

Roughly speaking it works out favor this:

World A: the original people of Ace, that meets Julius there but that version of Julius diesWorld B: Ace travels there and also kills that world’s version of Julius in former of a younger AU variation of himselfWorld C: the Alice in the country of Diamonds/Clover/Joker world. The Ace version from world A ends up here and also he is the one us read about in the manga. The Julius right here is no the same one from civilization A or B, who are both dead." data-medium-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/chibi-ace.jpg?w=300" data-large-file="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/chibi-ace.jpg?w=300" class="wp-image-384 size-full" src="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/chibi-ace.jpg?w=723" alt="Ace and also Alice chibi" srcset="https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/chibi-ace.jpg 300w, https://2175forals.com.files.2175forals.com.com/2016/07/chibi-ace.jpg?w=150 150w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" />Ace and Alice chibisI mean, clearly this was a crazy point to do but Ace had currently lost the only thing the was priceless to him so he made decision to salvage what he can of the situation. And also from climate on, Ace constantly suffered.

The reason for every one of this is no just since that one Julius died. It likewise turns the end that Julius is doomed to die in all the worlds. You see, a person’s existence in the miscellaneous Wonderland worlds is no infinite. If an ext than 50% the the Julius versions have died, the remaining Julius versions space then destined to likewise die.

Ace didn’t want all of the alternate versions of Julius to dice so the made Julius the clockmaker. The Joker, executioner, and also clockmaker all have actually a special capacity in that they have the right to never totally die. That’s why the other Wonderland characters can death Joker repeatedly but he quiet re-appears. Joker is successfully immortal so long as he is the leader of the jail world.

So during the manga and games, his visibility is not like Joker’s ghost-like appearances. However, once all of the Julius versions in every one of the worlds die, Julius will certainly then become like Joker: no bound to any type of country or timeline and also able to appear anywhere.

The fact that Ace currently lost Julius once and also will now have to watch together every variation of Julius dies is part of what is making him crazy. That, and the remorse he feels since he had to kill a version of Julius. Also, to be making Julius the clockmaker the right choice? will certainly the ultimate “ghostly” version of Julius be happy? i think Ace probably does his ideal not come think also much around that.

On the other hand, Ace does have a strong attachment come the Julius the is with now. And it’s not all negative.
