Alice on Border Road (今際の路のアリス, Imawa no michi no Arisu) is a manga series written by the same author of Alice in Borderland, Haro Aso, but illustrated by Takayoshi Kuroda (黒田高祥). The series premiered in Monthly Sunday Gene-X in September 2015. It is not yet known that whether it shares the same desolated world as Alice in Borderland as some important plot elements differ between the 2 series.
Tokyo school girl Norina Sano (佐野紀奈) is bored by her ordinary life and believes that "life is a shitty game one is forced to participate for about 80 years". One day she wakes up in the desolated Kyoto with the Queen of Clubs card held in her hand without a clue. While wandering around, she meets another Tokyo school girl with the Queen of Hearts card, Arisu Kojima (小島亜里朱). The 2 girls quickly get along with each other. They find the other clueless immigrants holding different face cards and are given the hint to walk their way back to Tokyo by an unknown person in the name of King of Clubs. It can be a very tiring journey without vehicle, therefore the 11 immigrants are divided into 2 groups: 1 would participate the journey and the other remains in Kyoto. The night before the journey, holder of the Jack of Diamonds who refuses to go to Tokyo is shot to death.
