Ahead of the release of Netflix’s Alice in Borderland season two premiere, HIDIVE has announced they will be releasing the English dub of the Alice in Borderland anime OVA on August 31st!
“Antisocial misfit Ryohei Arisu wanted nothing more than to leave his mundane life behind, but a wish on a firework transports him to the post-apocalyptic Borderland, a sinister parallel reality where danger lurks around every corner and survival is not guaranteed. To live to fight another day, Ryohei and other unwilling contestants must win a series of games, each deadlier than the last — but returning home means putting not only his skills, but also Ryohei’s humanity to the ultimate test.”Synopsis via HIDIVE
