I've never read the manga, but I enjoyed Alice in Borderland. I don't know how it compares to the source material, but I think it's a solid thriller in its own right. Each of the "games" are thoughtfully crafted and executed. The production has some polish. It didn't have the cheap, campy, costume-y feeling other adaptions do. Arisu's story is front and center, but the supporting ladies still shine, each as complex and interesting as our protagonist. Usagi specializes in games that focus on physical strength and hasn't been inevitably surpassed by Arisu. Yet at least. But I'm hopeful this will remain the case. Kunia's portrayal, in particular, was handled with care. Looking forward to season 2!
