The live-action version of the survival game or death game manga title Alice in Borderland Season 2 has been breaking records on Netflix, with a prior incomplete adaptation into animation. It’s time for a Japanese live-action series based on a manga series to flourish after Squid Game captivated the fans. While their tactics, undertones, and core themes vary, the two Asian series both take a battle royale-style approach to death games by fusing game theory with the challenge of survival. Another factor contributing to the growing popularity of Alice in Borderland season 2, which is back on Netflix with its second season, is the relatability of the main characters.
With no money at stake, Alice in Borderland’s first season showed a variety of players who were compelled to play the game in order to survive; in Squid Game, there is money at stake, but the stakes are considerably higher. Since they would be executed if their visas expired, they must participate in and win games to extend them. In a game of hearts that involved deception, the main character, Ryohei Arisu, lost his best pals. Although Arisu is simply a regular guy, his exceptional observational abilities and gaming background offer the audience optimism that he might be able to escape a death game.
Alice in Borderland Record
Season one is ranked second, and season two is first, on Netflix’s global Top 10 list of most-watched series (non-English category), which was officially released on December 22. Alice in Borderland season 2 landed on the Top 10 Series list in 90 countries, including Japan, the US, Canada, Hong Kong, France, Brazil, and more, with an astounding 61.2 million viewing hours just four days after its debut. Additionally, Alice in Borderland’s two seasons has amassed roughly 80 million streaming hours altogether, surpassing Squid Game’s 63 million in its first week of availability.
Another record set by this live-action adaptation of Haro Aso’s manga series is that Alice in Borderland’s two seasons has surpassed Squid Game’s 63 million streaming hours in its first week of release. This is a significant accomplishment, especially given that k-dramas are typically more well-liked, even when they adopt Japanese manga series, as is the case with the Korean live-action adaptation of Hana Yori Dango.
