Feeling unsettled about the future, high school student Ryouhei Arisu often escapes the reality of life. After hanging out at a bar, Arisu and his best friends, Daikichi Karube and Chouta Segawa, wait for the first train to arrive in the morning. Suddenly, a colorful array of fireworks set off in the sky, and an enormous blinding firework renders them unconscious.

The trio finds themselves back at the bar covered in dust, discovering that the city has become a barren wasteland. But instead of being worried, Arisu feels alive for the very first time in his life and relishes the freedom of this lifeless city. However, his bliss is cut short when the group rashly enters a festival venue. Seeing its delicacies and lively ambiance, they think the place is a dream; unbeknownst to them, it will be the setting for their first deadly game.

Together with his friends, Arisu slowly enters the mysterious area known as the Borderland—an unknown country where every game puts their lives at stake, and a single misstep can lead to their demise.

What do you live for?

Neither the question nor the answer to it might particularly interest you, yet reading this manga's attempts at trying to give you answers to this very question can still be a great investment of your time.
The name might strike you as very odd, "Alice" from Disney and in"the borderlands"? Will there be over-the-top humor and a little girl protagonist or what?

Borderlands primarily targets 2 kinds of audiences.
The first one being people who enjoy to read manga with games of life and death and an abundance of characters that make these sort of games interesting to spectate.
The second one are people ...

Mixed Feelings
If you are interested with the premise of psychological game, then turn away.

I’ll be honest in this review, the enjoyment you get from reading this depends on what you look for and expect from the manga.

If you’re looking for psychological drama about the concept of living and friendship then you are at the right place. There’s a lot of that here. Wall of text with sentimental monologue and backstory. Sometimes, I admit it was too much and thinking it was made with the reason to drag the chapters.

If you’re reading for the game, then you will be very very very disappointed. The Game design is ...

Inglish is not my first language

I don't know if the Netflix series is different, but if it's the same as this manga, I want you to know that the hype is, without a doubt, 100%...undeserved. The hype this manga gained was 100% undeserved; he is surfing a wave that is not his. If you want to know why alice in borderlands is famous, go to the series, because the manga obviously doesn't deserve the hype and is nothing more than a generic psychological manga with substandard quality compared to its peers.

Alice in borderlands is yet another manga filled with expository monologues. Every action, ...
