Alice in Borderland (今際の国のアリス, Imawa no Kuni no Arisu) is a Japanese suspense shōnen manga series by Haro Aso. It was serialized in Shogakukan Shōnen Sunday Super magazine from 2010 to 2015 and later moved to Weekly Shōnen Sunday in 2015 and finished in 2016.[3][1] Two spin-off series were published; Chi no Kyokuchi - Daiya no King-hen, published in Weekly Shōnen Sunday from October 15, 2014 to February 4, 2015,[4][5] and Alice on Borderroad, published in Shogakukan's Monthly Sunday Gene-X from August 19, 2015 to February 19, 2018.[6][7][8]

Alice in Borderland was adapted into an original video animation series.[2] A live-action series produced by Netflix, directed by Shinsuke Satō is set to premiere in 2020.[9]

Plot[edit]

Arisu, Karube, and Segawa, a trio of highschool delinquents, 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 Borderlands, they must play games to survive.
