Interesting but Unmemorable

Let me start with some disclaimers because, as you"ll find out, my rating for this mini-series is much lower than the majority of other reviewers/raters. Suffice it to lớn say I have always struggled with Japanese Dramas. I think their stories are interesting -- especially those that delve into lớn the dark psychological aspects of human nature. However, almost all, without exception, have sầu failed to elicit any emotion from me. For whatever reason, I often find that characters in J-Dramas fall flat. Alice in Borderl&, unfortunately, is no exception.Another important thing of note is that this reviews pertains only lớn this drama. I"m aware the story is based on a manga that I have not read, & the truth is told, I don"t plan lớn kiểm tra out. So keep in mind that I jumped into this series without knowing anything about it.PLOT: Interesting, albeit left mostly unexplored--------------------------------------------------------------The world (aka country/reality) in which this drama takes place is hands down the most interesting aspect of this series. So much so, that wanting lớn know more about the world & explore it through the "escape rooms" game-dynamic kept me engaged enough to finish this one in three days.Sadly, the series had khổng lồ juggle too many characters, so the world itself was left vastly unexplored. Of course, this is only the beginning & I"ve sầu heard rumors of a second season, so they may simply want to keep some mysteries to lớn resolve in the sequel. If so, I"ll probably watch it in hopes of getting some answers khổng lồ my numerous questions, though I won"t really be holding my breath for it. CHARACTERS: Flat & forgettable--------------------------------------------------------------Rather than talk about each of the main characters, I"ll talk about them as a whole, since they all chia sẻ the same problem and that is... none of them are really fleshed out. You could blame the length of the drama, certainly. But that would be a cheap excuse. These characters lachồng complexity & it was that alone that made me feel nothing for them. They could"ve all died by the end & I wouldn"t have shed a single tear. Now, there was an attempt at building emotion. But it felt superficial, rushed, và "formulaic". I knew when a character was going lớn be axed because we got lớn hear their sob story through a quichồng dialogue with another character.To be frank, if you like being engaged by the characters this Drama may fall short for you. But if you don"t mind simple characters we don"t really "get to know", so long as the world they inhabit is interesting, then this will make a decent watch.MALE VS FEMALE CHARACTERS: Problematic--------------------------------------------------------------I want lớn take a moment lớn express a problem I have with Japanese Dramas. Mind you, I haven"t tried that many... but my avoidance of them has lớn bởi precisely with the reasons I"m about to briefly delve sầu inkhổng lồ.This Drama is male-centric. Meaning, male characters tkết thúc lớn be given more depth than female characters. As such, the drama gave almost every male character some kind of motivation which explained why they made each of their decisions. Unfortunately, female characters were left unexplored & at times, downright untouched. Even Usagi (the FL) was stripped from giving her depth by focusing her flashbacks on her father, rather than on her own life/aspirations. There"s only one female character (a transgender gal) who was given a brief but beautiful story. Her aside, though, female characters were depicted as disposable, selfish, useless, and/or simple eye-candy.Unlượt thích female characters, male characters were usually portrayed in a nobler way. Even minor male characters were shown willing to sacrifice themselves for other men/friends. While female characters were killed off for reasons verging on the absurd (lượt thích showing the audience the dangers of a room, for example). I don"t want lớn add spoilers here, but if you"re interested to know more, add a phản hồi & I"ll explain using the spoiler tags.FRAMING: toxic male gaze--------------------------------------------------------------The above sầu points lead me khổng lồ talk about how the Drama was directed because it"s one of the most problematic areas và maybe the aspect that spoiled my enjoyment the most.Many of the decisions here were taken with the idea that "sex sales" và, of course, most times that means female bodies will be exploited. So as the series crossed into the last quarter (when they reach the beach), a rule was mix that everyone should walk around in a bathing suit to lớn ensure "no one can hide any weapons". The result was having most female characters walk around in small bikinis while male characters got khổng lồ wear baggy trunks và shirts. The fact that they didn"t march around shirtless nullified the supposed "purpose/logic" of the rule. To the point where we even see a few of these male characters taking out weapons from the back of their swimming trunks...But perhaps more intolerable than this was a scene that involved what would"ve sầu been a gang-rape had the scene not been interrupted. Luckily, the director decided not to lớn undress the character who gets kidnapped and almost assaulted (which I believe is supposed to lớn be an underage girl). Yet, the entire scene still felt crass because the camera hovered over the assailant"s shoulder, making the audience complicit by showing the scene from his POV instead of the victim"s. The result is that sexual assault ends up portrayed as something quasi-erotic, rather than as something horrific that is happening to the victyên. This didn"t settle well with me, as this has been a technique I thought we"d move sầu past with the rise of the #metoo movement... OVERALL: On the fence--------------------------------------------------------------To be honest, this one is a tough one khổng lồ recommkết thúc without putting on the table all the additional notes/flaws I"ve sầu pointed out in this đánh giá. I think the world is interesting enough to lớn make this drama watchable --binge-watchable even!-- và the "escape room" games were hands-down the best part. However, the characters are not memorable or even original. They felt cartoonish khổng lồ me và ultimately unengaging. I also hated the directing & the constant "butt framing". The disparity in how the genders were handled was especially jarring, so I wouldn"t recommover this one if you care about that at all. I also think this show calls for some trigger warnings because we see: attempted gang rape, executions, và a number of shootouts that may hit cthua thảm to lớn home to lớn someone living in the USA; as it is reminiscent of many real schools shootouts in the way they were portrayed. So keep all that in mind if you decide to lớn watch. If any of these things trigger you, I"ll recommkết thúc staying away from this one.If, on the other hand, you don"t care about these things and lượt thích watching psychological mysteries (which are constructed lượt thích anime), then you"ll probably really enjoy this one.
