In contrast with Alice in Borderland season 1, season 2 brings more scope of an intense-filled drama where the new and existing players reminisce their backstories. All eight episodes have saved enough space to document the character’s emotional journey of love, betrayal, heartbreaks, and victories. 

The adorable Kuina, Chishiya, Aguni, and Ann have delivered spectacular performances in their respective roles. Frames featuring them were so captivating that you are left with no choice rather than rooting for these ultimate players. It’s only the show’s runtime that’s tiring.
