Alice in Borderland (Japanese: 今際の国のアリス, Hepburn: Imawa no Kuni no Arisu) is a Japanese suspense manga series written and illustrated by Haro Aso. It was serialized in Shogakukan's Shōnen Sunday S magazine from November 2010 to March 2015, and later moved to Weekly Shōnen Sunday in April 2015 and finished in March 2016.

Alice in Borderland was adapted into a 3-episode original video animation (OVA), released from October 2014 to February 2015. A live-action series produced by Netflix and directed by Shinsuke Satō premiered worldwide in December 2020.

Premise[edit]

Arisu, Karube, and Chōta, a trio of high school students, are bored with their current lives. During a firework celebration, Arisu wishes that he could live in a different world which would be more exciting for him. As such, his wish was granted, and the three were transported into a seemingly post-apocalyptic-like parallel world. After stepping into what seems to be an empty festival, they are greeted by a woman who tells them that they have already "entered their game". After clearing the game, she reveals to them that, in Borderland, they must play games to survive.
