It looks like they’re in new clothes for Alice In Borderland Season 2.
All of this came after Netflix revealed that Alice In Borderland Season 2 will feature the characters who managed to survive the first season facing even tougher challenges.
Alice in Borderland is adapted from a manga of the same name and the manga is brilliant!
However, I would recommend you not read it yet as it might spoil what’s to come in the Netflix series.
As for the show’s story, it a sci-fi thriller that follows a character called is Arisu, who’s described as a “listless, jobless, and video-game-obsessed young man”.
Arisu ends up finding himself in a dystopian Tokyo and he has to play dangerous games in order to survive.
He ends up meeting another character called Usagi.
She a young woman who’s navigating the same games alone.
