A recently-released announcement video has revealed the December 10 Netflix premiere of their live-action adaptation of popular suspense-survival manga series Alice in Borderland (Imawa no Kuni no Alice). Check out the video here!

Alice in Borderland will star Kento Yamazaki (live-action  Kingdom, Your Lie in April, Orange, Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku) and Tao Tsuchiya (live-action Rurouni Kenshin, Orange, Library Wars) as lead characters Ryohei Arisu and Yuzuha Usagi, respectively.

The manga tells the story of Ryohei Arisu, a high schooler who is bored with his life and finds the days tedious. One night, he wishes during a fireworks celebration that he live in a different world where life would be more exciting. He and his two delinquent friends Karube and Segawa are then transported to a post-apocalyptic parallel world called the Borderlands, where they must participate in survival games in order to stay alive and return to the real world. In this world they also meet Yuzuha Usagi, daughter of a mountaineer who is also a participant in the games.
