Kuu Tanaka’s Tate no Kuni manga is set in a country where two dimensions intersect. The “Tate no Kuni” (lit. Framed Country) refers to the world of paintings, while the “Yon no Kuni” (lit. Four-sided Country) is the real world where humans live. One day, a girl named Alice who lives in the Yon no Kuni falls into a painting and arrives in the Tate no Kuni. There, she meets a boy named Kazuki who has been trapped in the painting for years. Together, Alice and Kazuki begin their adventure in the strange world of paintings.
The manga is being serialized in Kadokawa’s Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh G magazine, and the third volume will ship on December 27. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga in English, and it released the second volume on November 14.
