Alice in Borderland – Cube meets Battle Royale

Based on a popular Manga series of the same name that ran from 2010-2016. Alice in Borderland is Netflix’s most recent live-action adaptation

Well, this is a lot of fun. And yeah, I know, both Cube and Battle Royale are both classics but this is a beautiful blend of both of these, only adapted into a series

After a run-in with the cops, Arisu, Karube, and Segawa hide in a toilet of a local train station. In the blink of an eye, the whole population of Tokyo just vanishes without any explanation. The 3 friends soon find out that they’re all part of a deadly game where the only prize is…escaping with your life.

The contestants are given a task and a certain amount of time to complete it. Failing to complete the task in the given timeframe will result in a gruesome death. There is no escape, the only thing to do is play or die.

The difficulty of each game is determined by the suit of a playing card; 2 of clubs=easy etc. That’s all you really need to know.

Alice in Borderland season 1 is now available to stream on Netflix. Do your eyes and ears a favour and go and check it out this instant!. Season one consists of 8-episodes, so it’s easy enough to binge.

The manga series ran from 2010-2015 and finally finished in 2016. So, we have 5/6 years of story here. I am gonna take a wild guess and say we will be seeing a lot more of Alice in Borderland. There was also a 2014 original video animation adaptation. OVA is a Japanese animation network that primarily produces stuff for home viewing…pretty much like everyone else these days!

As always, thanks for reading. I hope you enjoy the series.
