Alice in Borderland is a 2020 Japanese science fiction thriller drama streaming television series based on the manga of the same name by Haro Aso. Directed by Shinsuke Sato, the series stars Kento Yamazaki and Tao Tsuchiya as allies trapped in an abandoned Tokyo where they are forced to compete in dangerous games, the type and difficulty of which are determined by playing cards. After surviving their first game, players receive "visas", which are extended the more they compete; if the visas expire, the individuals are executed by red lasers being shot from the sky.
First announced in July 2019, each episode of the series was written by Sato, Yoshiki Watabe, and Yasuko Kuramitsu. Filming began in August and concluded that same year in December, with locations including various districts of Shibuya, and a green screen studio serving as a replica of the popular Shibuya Crossing, where a large portion of the series takes place. In an international collaboration, Japan's Digital Frontier worked with teams from Singapore, the United States, and India to add post-credit visual effects, with the music featured in the series being composed by Yutaka Yamada, a frequent collaborator with Sato.
Alice in Borderland premiered on Netflix on December 10, 2020, where it was met with positive reviews from viewers and critics for its visuals, cinematography, editing, and use of graphic violence, with some comparing the series to the films Battle Royale (2000) and Cube (1997). Two weeks after the first season was released, Netflix renewed the series for a second season, which is set to be released in December 2022.
