The mesmerizing story of “Alice in Borderland”
Ryōhei Arisu is the center character of the prominent manga. He is a male high school student, irritated with his intolerable everyday life. He tags along with Karube and Chōta, his bad friends, to hang out in town one night.
Suddenly, giant fireworks covered the town. He then notices that no one else is around when Ryōhei comes to his senses.
Furthermore, as Ryōhei, Karube, and Chōta find themselves in a different world, they participated in survival games or died right off the bat. As the three find a way back to their world, they also fight to live.
Moreover, in 2010, Aso began serializing the manga in Shogakukan’s Weekly Shonen Sunday S (formerly Shōnen Sunday Chō) magazine.
As the series entered its final story arc in March 2015, it transferred to Weekly Shonen Sunday.
Meanwhile, the manga ended in March 2016, and 18 compiled book volumes were published by Shogakukan.
