Netflix has released the second action-packed trailer for a new Japanese Original series “Alice in Borderland” which arrives on December 10th. The sci-fi thriller is based on the manga series “Imawa no Kuni no Alice” by Haro Aso which ran from 2010 to 2016. The series follows Arisu—a listless, jobless and video-game-obsessed young man—who suddenly finds himself in a strange, emptied-out version of Tokyo in which he and his friends must compete in dangerous games in order to survive. In this strange world, Arisu meets Usagi, a young woman who’s navigating the games alone. Together, they set out to unravel one mystery after another as they risk their lives and confront what it means to live.
The series is directed by Shinsuke Sato and co-stars Kento Yamazaki (Kingdom, The Disastrous Life of Saiki K) and Tao Tsuchiya (Library Wars: BOOK OF MEMORIES, Mare).
