10 Series Like Alice in Borderland You Must Watch

10 Shows Similar to Alice in Borderland You Must See

The Netflix survival action thriller series "Alice in Borderland" was created from the same-named manga series by Haro Aso. It depicts the tale of a group of people who are compelled to play progressively deadlier games in order to survive after becoming stranded in a bizarre and deserted version of Tokyo. Four suits of cards stand in for the four different game kinds. Hearts signify for psychological, clubs for collaboration, diamonds for intelligence, and spades for the physical. The card's number indicates the level of difficulty, the greater the number, the riskier the game.

If the first season focuses on the number cards, season two moves the emphasis to the face cards. While this is happening, the main character Ryohei Arisu (Kento Yamazaki) and his friends and allies work to overcome every obstacle in order to return to their previous reality. If you enjoyed "Alice in Borderland," here are some suggestions that could be to your liking. The majority of these programs, which are comparable to "Alice in Borderland," are available on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or HBO Max.

10. Darwin's Game

The television program "Darwin's Game" may be the one on our list that most closely resembles "Alice in Borderland." When Sud Kaname (Ysuke Kobayashi) receives a mystery invitation to play an online game, he stops being your typical high school student. Kaname finds himself caught up in a real-life struggle to the death when he starts the game and a snake leaps out from inside. Each participant in the game is given a "Sigil," a kind of ability that serves as their sole chance of survival.

A recurring theme in both programs is the idea of interactive games. The main character of "Alice in Borderland" applies his screen-based skills to real life: Arisu, who developed his competitive skills on numerous computer games, now participates in real-life gameplay and its repercussions. In addition to being in comparable situations, Arisu and Kaname are similar enough to one other to be brothers from different realities. Both are Masters of Strategic thinking, but instead of using their advantage to hurt their rivals, they choose to aid them wherever possible.

9. Re: Mind

Re: Mind, a Japanese television series, is bold and complicated in its execution. The story centers on 11 high school students who awaken with their feet tied to the floor and sacks over their heads. They discover they are in an antique European-style room when the bags are taken off, and their captor appears to have a considerable limp. The girls start to vanish one by one as they strive to figure out what has happened to them. Much of the secrets in the episode are not disclosed until later in the series, just like in "Alice in Borderland." Re: Mind may not have as many action scenes as Alice in Borderland, but the show more than makes up for it with its psychological thriller elements.

8. Sweet Home

The South Korean television series "Sweet Home" was created from the Kim Kan-bi and Hwang Young-chan webtoon of the same name from 2017. The protagonists of the novel are the residents of the Green Home apartment complex, who find that everything around them has suddenly become horrific and that people are turning into monsters. Although these creatures play a significant role in the story, the primary focus of "Sweet Home" is still on character relationships and how different characters, whether humans or monsters, respond to situations. Both "Sweet Home" and "Alice in Borderland" have a fantasy-based backstory. Both programs also have magnificent action scenes and expansive set pieces that do credit to the suspenseful story.

6. The Purge

The Purge is a franchise that includes the anthology series by James DeMonaco of the same name. The story is set in an alternative America under the rule of a totalitarian regime. Similar to the movies, the government permits a 12-hour purge every year during which all crimes are permissible. The first season centers on a number of personalities who don't seem to be related to one another. These characters' paths will unavoidably cross as the Purge night gets started. The James DeMonaco anthology series of the same name is part of the The Purge franchise. The narrative takes place in a totalitarian-ruled version of America. Every year, the government authorizes a 12-hour purge during which all crimes are legal, just like in the movies. The first season focuses on several characters that don't appear to be connected to one another. The Purge night will unavoidably bring these characters' paths together.

5. High-Rise Invasion

The lone anime on this list is "High-Rise Invasion," which was adapted from a manga series by Takahiro Oba and Tsuina Miura. Although there is an anime version of "Alice in Borderland," it is an OVA that spans three episodes. Like the Netflix series, "High-Rise Invasion" takes place in an urban setting in a parallel universe. This is described in the anime as a "abnormal area" that resembles a city full of skyscrapers connected by suspension bridges only on the surface. When Yuri Honjou, a high school girl, comes there, she learns that a bunch of masked men are after her and that she must either escape or kill them. Soon after discovering that her brother Rika is also a part of this weird universe, Yuri and Rika begin cooperating by exchanging information.

4. Panic

Olivia Welch, Jessica Sula, and Mike Faist starred in the brief-lived sitcom "Panic," which was developed by Lauren Oliver from her 2014 book of the same name. The story revolves around 23 recent grads competing in the annual Panic competition in the hopes of winning a $50,000 prize. "Panic," which is set in the fictitious Texas town of Carp, combines many themes with "Alice in Borderland," such as despair, hope, and the need to survive. Panic is a very risky game, same like the one in the Japanese series. We are informed that two people lost their lives playing the game the summer before.

3. Liar Game

An innocent young woman named Nan Do Chon (also known as Nam Da Jung) battles rising debts in the South Korean television series "Liar Game," which is based on the Japanese manga of the same name by Shinobu Kaitan. She makes the decision to sign up for the titular reality program, where competitors compete to win $10 billion, in the hopes of paying them off. Do Chon links up with Cha Woo Jin, a great conman with the uncommon ability to accurately tell when someone is lying to them, in order to assure her triumph. Before being adapted for television, "Liar Game" and "Alice in Borderland" were both manga series. Although "Alice in Borderland" has a magical element that "Liar Game" does not, they also share similar themes and genres.

2. As the Gods Will

As the Gods Will is most likely the current closest thing to Alice in Borderland. Both have been turned into live-action movies but neither presently has any anime. (Even though one is a drama series and the other is a movie, is it similar enough?)

As the Gods Will also has a number of games that are psychologically intense and life-threatening, similar to Alice in Borderland. Shun Takahata, a regular student, is forced to participate in a series of violent children's games where the consequence for losing is death, and he has no choice but to keep winning in order to defend himself and his boyhood friend. A troubled classmate is savoring the chance to have other classmates killed in the meanwhile.

However, if you want to go on this adventure, be prepared for a lot of blood.

1. Squid Game

'Squid Game' is a fun and action-packed series about a survival game, similar to 'Alice in Borderland,' but with the Korean program, the game master is very much human. The show centers on 456 individuals who consent to participate in a number of kid-friendly games in the hopes of winning $45.6 billion. Many people continue to play the games even after learning of their lethal twists because they have no other option. Even while "Squid Game" may appear to be just another survival program, it stands out for its open examination of issues like classism, income inequality, and the exploitation of the poor and marginalized.
