To make matters worse, Stella then begins to suffer from manifestations of a violent alter ego called Bloody Alice.[2][1]

Reception

Reviewing the first volume for Anime News Network, Rebecca Silverman gave it a grade of B. She commented that the series "doesn't always work, but it has enough potential to that given another volume or two, I feel like it will really take off." She praised the art, and wrote that Stella's mother "is definitely a leading contender for “sickest parent in manga.”", saying that the scenes with the parents were "a combination of enraging and chilling, making them easily the most effective part of the volume."[1]
