Alice in Borderland is adapted from the manga of the same name by Haro Aso.

The story revolves around Arisu and his two best friends, Karube and Chota. The trio find themselves lost in an abandoned Tokyo one day and are forced to participate in dangerous, life-and-death games.

Those who survive each game will be awarded with visas in the form of poker cards. The number on the cards represent how many days they have to live. Their life ends if they don't participate in another game before their visa is up.

#2 Plot twist in every episode that will keep you wanting more

While the probability of those risky and sadistic games happening in real life is almost zero, it's still interesting to see or imagine how humans would actually react in those situations.

Alice in Borderland will transport you to a whole new world where people's darkest secrets are exposed and moral values are tested.

You will probably catch yourself asking this question many times while watching: What would I do if I was one of them?
