Manga Review: Black Rose Alice, Volume 6, by Setona Mizushiro

Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5-4
Publisher: Shojo Beat (VIZ Media)
Release Date: November 2015
Volumes: 6 (Hiatus)
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 5.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Dimitri Lewandowski is a celebrated tenor in early 1900s Vienna. When he is killed in an accident, his corpse is colonized by the seeds of a vampire master. At first, Dimitri denies that anything has changed, but as the people around him start dying, he is forced to accept the ghastly truth.


In this volume, we get to see what happened to the twins in the past. And it’s pretty bad.
After that, Dimitri comes back, and he brings with him a girl from his past. It’s a learning experience for him and Alice. But mostly it draws closer to the conclusion at the end of the volume, where Alice possibly actually chooses who she wants. Her choice has been pretty obvious from the beginning, to me, but it’s not fully clear whether she goes through with it in this volume or not. It’s possible she didn’t and is waiting for something.
This volumes leaves us hanging, as now the series is on hiatus and who knows when it will be continued. I do appreciate that it ends well, with a somewhat conclusion, with a decision and not many questions. But in the comic at the end, it’s hinting that this is just part one, and that makes me wonder what she plans for part two.
At this point, though, I’m pretty happy with it pausing here.
