Kakegurui Season 2 VisualIt seems the familiar gambling party’s all here for another semester of gambling and drama.

The latest issue of Square Enix’s Gangan Joker magazine announced the major cast and crew members for the Kakegurui anime TV series’ upcoming second season. We break the details down below.

Yasuko Kobayashi (Attack on Titan, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure) is returning to take charge of series composition for the show.

Netflix streamed 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.
