Before you ask, yes, this is the gambling one. That gambling one.
Earlier today, Kakegurui fans flocked to the “Hyakkaou Private Academy Cultural Festival” fan event. During the event, it was revealed that the Kakegurui anime will receive a second season.
New details will be announced at a later date. A teaser visual was released for the new season, which you can check out below:
Kakegurui‘s first season debuted on Japanese TV on July 1.
The series is based on Homura Kawamoto and illustrator Tōru Naomura’s manga of the same name. Yuichiro Hayashi (Garo the Animation, PES: Peace Eco Smile) directed the project at Mappa, with Manabu Akita providing character designs. Yasuko Kobayashi (Attack on Titan, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure) was in charge of series composition for the show.
Netflix will stream Kakegurui outside of Japan. They describe the show as:
There is one absolute rule in gambling — at the end of the day, there is a winner and a loser. The winner gains riches and prestige, while the loser is branded a failure and left with nothing. In the silence leading up to the moment that separates winners and losers, instincts are sharpened and desires reach the point of ecstasy. This is a harsh microcosm of life in a capitalist society. Why are people captivated by a world filled with risk? What lies beyond the madness? As the class system of modern society crumbles, an unprecedented adrenaline-pumping anime sweeps the world. Based on the manga by Homura Kawamoto and Toru Naomura (Serialized in Monthly Gangan Joker published by Square Enix), twelve episodes of the series are being produced by MAPPA. Kakegurui stars Saori Hayami, Minami Tanaka, Tatsuya Tokutake, Yuki Wakai, Karin Nanami, Mariya Ise, Yu Serizawa, Tomokazu Sugita, Mayu Udono, Ayaka Fukuhara and Miyuki Sawashiro. The series will premiere in 2018 on Netflix, everywhere except Japan.
