About Welcome Back Alice Manga Volume 1

Welcome Back, Alice manga volume 1 features story and art by Shuzo Oshimi, the author of Blood on the Tracks, Happiness, and The Flowers of Evil.

The story revolves around three childhood friends, Yohei, Kei, and Yui, who are reunited in high school. What appeared to be a straightforward love triangle between two boys and a girl takes an unexpected turn when Kei shows up looking and dressed like a girl. Suddenly, Yohei is thrown into a maelstrom as he struggles between his infatuation with Yui and his lust for Kei.

In this story of adolescent awakening, perversion, and love, Oshimi takes a bold approach and sets out to explore the boundaries of gender, sexuality, and identity.

For new and old fans of Oshimi!

by -

In Oshimi's own words, part of the goal for this manga is to "...examine, confront, and deconstruct one's sex drive and masculinity." within this story. I'm interested in how this goal will unfold as the story and love triangle between the main cast pushes forward.

If you are a fan of Oshimi's former works like The Flowers of Evil or Inside Mari - then you will likely enjoy Welcome Back Alice as well. Highly recommend.

An odd class reunion


This is definitely for fans of the creator, Oshimi, who specializes in psychological trauma and body horror. This is a very interesting concept, the reunion of grade school friends in high school, a classic love triangle, but now with a new and messy twist. While it introduces concepts that would be ideal to walk some kids thru, it's not meant for kids. This is a growing pains journey into sexuality and the body, as well as how both ourselves and our friendships change over time. Engaging but not for everybody.
