Netflix’s flagship Japanese series Alice in Borderland returns to the streaming platform after its successful introduction in the first season. Directed by Shinsuke Sato, it is one of the most famous suspense series not only in Japan but also around the world.
Alice in Borderland is based on the manga of the same name written and illustrated by Haro Aso. This is a sci-fi drama series that follows the story of Ryohei Arusu. The series began airing in December 2020. Now, after its renewal, Netflix will bring it back once again with the second season. Let’s talk about the release date, plot, and more of Alice in Borderland season 2.
The Alice on the Frontier setting
The series revolves around two main characters. Ryohei is a 24-year-old NEET gamer who is obsessed with video games and plays them all day at home. On the other hand, Yuzuha is a mountaineer who ends up in the empty city of Tokyo after her father’s death.
They are both voluntarily transported to this empty city. At first they have no idea what it is, but when they find out, things get worse. They seem to have a very dangerous game to play which, if they fail, will cost them their lives.
The games are decided by the card game. At the end of the first part, the duo get a visa card as a survival trophy. With each part approved, the visa lengthens. So if you keep winning the games, you will live. Otherwise, when the visa expires, the lasers fired from the sky will burn you.
Alice in Borderland presents strange and terrifying cases. The games are pretty deadly, and the main character duo must do everything in their power to survive together. If they don’t extend their visas, they will die. To live, they have to compete and try to find a way out.
Alice in Borderland season 1 recap
In the Alice in Borderland season 1 recap, we get a flashback of Momoka wandering around town with Asahi, where they shoot a ton of videos. The current game takes a new twist when Arisu concludes that Momoka was indeed the witch. The group decides to team up and throw Momoka into the fire, thus winning the game.
After winning the game, Arisu and Usagi watch Momoka and Asahi’s videos and discover that these two were in fact their dealers. In the video, they also locate a lair that appears to be the place where the masters of the game used to live.
After some investigation, the duo Arisu and Usagi finally find the lair. However, no player is present, instead there are only executed bodies. They also learn that the masters of the game were actually players like themselves. At the end of the episode, a lady comes out of the shadows and explains the rules of the new games.
