Cover Characters
Marianne, Dinah

Bad End is the eighth chapter of the Are You Alice? manga series.


"Wonderland's mysterious fate…?"


Marianne hugs Alice as he arrives at her house as the Duke eats Alice. The Duchess tells everyone about the feelings of everyone towards Alice as she was stopping the Duke, that Alice must understand better than her as she is only a replacement.

Meanwhile, Marianne is serving Alice a table of sweets and pastries. Alice, who seems to be "acting" to know who Marianne is, tells her that her "teacher" loves sweets that she exaggerated everything again which made Marianne annoyed for she also wants him to eat those treats she made; Marianne also adds that her "teacher" is currently out so Alice gives in to try her food. Alice says that she must stay home for she might get killed by someone. But, Marianne tells Alice that she is always saved by the Cheshire Cat, for he is the one who helps Alice to reach the end of the story. Confused, Alice tells her that he is "Alice." While all of a sudden, Marianne orders Alice to give back her name, when Alice takes his gun out and points at her, saying that he is Alice. He realizes the his body is moving on its own. Then, with an out-of-place smile, he shoots her with his gun, telling that he will become the one and only Alice. It is then revealed, that Alice inside the Duke, is reenacting the "Bad End" of the story of Alice in Wonderland.

Outside, the White Rabbit appears before the Duke and slashes it down, "saving" an unconscious Alice; also telling the Mad Hatter that Alice isn't Alice. With this, the Cheshire Cat tells that the 89th Alice came to Wonderland on his own will and so the Mad Hatter can do whatever he wants with him.

As the White Rabbit hurries down the streets to find another replacement for the Duke - for the past and the regrets aren't necessary in Wonderland - he encounters Marianne in her throne where he will save her.


Trivia and ErrorsEdit

  • Despite the chapter being called "Bad End", no one actually meets a bad ending within the chapter.
  • This chapter hosts the first colored page since the title page of Chapter 1.  In fact, it holds two.
  • The girl that shows up to Alice while he's in the Duke is later said to be Alice Liddel.  However, the real life Alice Liddel had short brown hair and, during the time of Alice in Wonderland's publication, Alice Liddel was 10 to 14.
  • The Duchess says she saw the sad back stories of everyone in Wonderland, but out of those who are pictured, only the White Rabbit's back story is shown to us.  The Cheshire Cat's history is inferred and the Queen's back story is only in a small snippet.
  • When Alice shoots his big sister, he seems to be under the control of a writer.
  • The White Rabbit skillfully cuts the Duke into many pieces with his rapier, but when this event is described later, the rapier is always described as a "large sword".
  • It becomes obvious that, even though the Queen knows the 89th Alice is fake, the Hatter never caught onto it until the White Rabbit stated it.
  • Despite the fact his back is scalded by whatever the Duke is made up of, the Cheshire Cat recovers by the end of the chapter and carries Alice for the Duchess.
