Alice in Borderland Plot and Cast
Alice in Borderland introduced allies who are trapped in an abandoned Tokyo where they are forced to compete in card games. After surviving their first game, players receive “visas”, which are extended further upon successful completion of more card games.
If the visas expire, the individuals are executed by red lasers being shot from the sky. Alice in Borderland Season 1 ends by showing a flashback. Momoka wanders through the empty city with her friend Asahi, recording videos over the phone. In the present, Arisu confronts Aguni, who tells the rest of the group that he is “the witch,” but that his victim was not Momoka but his best friend Hatter, who shot him in self-defense.
Meanwhile, Arisu replies that the witch is Momoka, instead of Aguni. As Aguni attempts to kill Niragi, who is still determined to kill everyone, the remaining players throw Momoka into the bonfire, winning the game. As the survivors leave the burning hotel, Chishiya collects the final card. The next day, Arisu and Usagi watch several videos recorded by Asahi, who had committed suicide during the game.
The video revealed that Asahi and Momoka are dealers, for the players who organize games to extend their visas. Another clip reveals that the duo visited an underground lair filled with gamemasters. Arisu and Usagi manage to locate the lair, only finding a pile of executed gamemasters. Chechnya and Kuina said that the gamemasters are also the players.
In the last scene, fans saw a woman named Mira who introduced a new set of games to collect face cards.
Alice in Borderland Season 2 will clear all the loose ends left in the first season. Fans will surely get to know the identity of Mira. The mysterious woman is probably the Game Master.
Coming to the cast, it includes Kento Yamazaki as Ryohei Arisu, Tao Tsuchiya as Yuzuha Usagi, Keita Machida as Daikichi Karube, Sho Aoyagi as Aguni Morizono, and Yuki Morinaga as Chota Segawa. We will also get to see Nijiro Murakami as Shuntaro Chishiya, Ayaka Miyoshi as Ann Rizuna, Aya Asahina as Hikari Kuina and Riisa Naka as Mira Kano.
