Alice in Borderland starts with a group of high school kids about to leave high school. Alice (yes it’s his name) is trying to avoid thinking about the future, so are his friends Karube and Chota. One night when they’re together they see a bright explosion in the sky and find themselves transported to a desolate territory.
This desolate new land they find themselves in is no ordinary place, as they eventually find out. In this new world, they are forced to play games of survival. Not just ordinary and not just survival as in last man standing. This is life or death. If they get hurt in the game, they are hurt for real, if they die in the game…you get the picture. Will they survive long enough to get to the end of the game? Will there be hard choices they have to make? I can tell you this, the show is pretty brutal.
After watching Nozo x Kimi, Ane Log and this one, the Anisun project did produce some shows that really should get full seasons, at least one. The OVAs are hard to find sometimes so they don’t get the attention they deserve. Well I should say on our side, don’t know how things went over in Japan. I could see myself watching a full season of this, it kind of reminds me of Btooom! or Devil Survivor.
