Suspense Manga Alice in Borderland Gets Original Video Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 24th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Haro Aso's survival suspense manga Alice in Borderland (Imawa no Kuni no Alice) will bundle an original video anime (OVA) on DVD.
The story follows a high school boy named Arisu and other youths who are transported to a devastated alternate world. Trapped, they are forced to play a deadly game of survival.
The manga already spawned an anime commercial that Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell) produced last year. Yoshihisa Kawahara played Alice, while Hidenori Takahashi played Karube.
Aso began the manga in Shogakukan's Shonen Sunday Super magazine in 2010, but it has since moved to the main Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine. Shogakukan published the 10th compiled book volume in March. Aso also created the Hyde & Closer manga, which Viz Media released on its own English version of the Shonen Sunday website and in print in North America.
