Welcome Back, Alice
Volume 1


Childhood friends Youhei, Kei, and Yui are reunited in high school. But what seemed like a straightforward love triangle between the three of them takes an unexpected turn when Kei shows up looking and dressed like a girl.

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

Preliminary (15/? chp)
As someone who blindly dove into this manga because I saw a cute girl on the cover ... this work has completely torn apart and reconstructed my sensibilities, and made me reexamine the idea of attraction, and how gender identity plays a part in it

I was, in order: shocked, repulsed, and intrigued. You really start to wonder what it means for a man to be attracted to a woman. Are you ever really attracted to someone purely because of their biology or their sex? Or because of some more abstract notion like "femininity"?

More concretely: although I started this manga rooting for Yui to end ...
