TV Review: Alice in Borderland S2 (2022) (Thriller)

Alice in Borderland S2 (今際の国のアリス)
8 episodes

An aimless gamer and his two friends find themselves in a parallel Tokyo, where they're forced to compete in a series of sadistic games to survive. (Synopsis)

Season 2 of Alice in Borderland picks up right where the first season left off, throwing you straight into the action without any recap. This was fine for the main characters, who I remembered fairly well from two years ago, but when a few secondary characters appeared during the course of the episodes both my husband and I struggled to recall them clearly. However, this wasn't a major issue in terms of enjoying the action. Once again, the games were gripping and intense, and splitting off the established group of friends added to the tension. Overall, it continued to be a strong and captivating series and I will definitely keep watching if they make a third series. It gets 4.5 stars from me. (As an aside, I have to comment on how beautiful Yamazaki Kento's hands are!)
