“Alice in Borderland” Season 2 Story
Arisu and his companions have gathered all the numbered playing cards by surviving and clearing many outrageous games in the Borderland. After Mira declares the start of a new challenge, Arisu heads to Shibuya with Usagi and the others to clear the face cards, but they are suddenly ambushed by a hail of bullets. Hypothesizing that this attacker will hold back while they are participating in another game, Arisu and his companions head to another game venue, where they are met by the overwhelmingly charismatic Kyuma. While facing him as an opponent in the game, Arisu is touched by Kyuma’s approach to life and begins to consider the meaning of living. Meanwhile, Usagi begins to waver in her decision to return to the real world, which drove the father she respected to his death.
“Alice in Borderland” Season 1 Story
Constantly compared to his high-achieving younger brother, Arisu spends his gloomy days unable to find any meaning in life. When he goes out with his best friends Chota and Karube — the only sparks in his dreary life — the city suddenly becomes devoid of people. While feeling some sense of unease, the three young men are elated at this newfound freedom. However, this is the “Borderland,” a place where the inhabitants must clear various “games” to survive. Arisu, who uses his observational and decision-making skills to clear the games, meets Usagi, a climber who has cleared games on her own without making any companions. Through this unbelievable life-or-death unbelievable experience, they face head-on the question of what “living” means.

The best-selling masterpiece of survival suspense was a hit even in its digital format. All 18 volumes of the original manga and both volumes of the new sequel “Alice in Borderland: Retry” are currently in publication from Shogakukan’s Shonen Sunday Comics.
