The sci-fi thriller series that’s killing it on Netflix

From the intricate design of the deadly games, to the stunning scenes set in an emptied-out Tokyo, Alice in Borderland has plenty for viewers to lay their eyes on. According to Sato, he achieved this through a use of practical sets, with some strategically deployed CGI. For instance, in episode one, the main characters walk out into the normally bustling Shibuya Crossing to find it completely deserted. “The key was to figure out which part to actually build and which to CGI,” Sato explained to Screen Anarchy. To answer that question, Sato and his crew filmed several short scenes at the actual crossing to use as templates.

And the visuals aren’t the only impressive aspect of Alice in Borderland. The series is paced like an action movie, with an almost relentlessly propulsive plot that shoots through all eight episodes like a rocket. Sato explained that this was by design: “What Netflix asked me to do was to think of it, the eight episodes, as one very, very long film, and to try to maintain the tonality throughout.” Considering the series’ worldwide popularity, it looks like the choices made by Sato and Netflix Japan were right on. You can see what all the fuss is about by checking out Alice in Borderland, streaming now on Netflix.
