Synopsis

This is the 2nd Season of Kakegurui.

Gambling is my reason for existence.

The famous Hyakkaou Private Academy has a social class system. The top of the school, the School Council, is controlled by gambling. If you win you enter heaven - if you lose, hell. In this insane academy, those good at gambling are the envy of everyone, and those who aren’t suffer.

One day, a girl transfers into this academy. A girl called Yumeko Jabami...

Three Episode Impression

Ah, we finally get a second season of Kakegurui, and to be honest, amongst a whole anime season of sequels, Kakegurui has to be one of my most anticipated. We follow Yumeko in her pursuits against the student council once more, but this time there is a twist! The seat for student council president has been put up in a gambling match amongst all of the students, so we don’t even get to see Yumeko go up against Kirari quite yet. However, the gambles this season are a huge difference from last season. Rather than trying to actually gamble, the new student council candidates are willing to do whatever it takes to win a game, even if it costs someone else their life or a limb. It’s stressful, full of anticipation, and full of drama. There also seems to be an emphasis on Mary this season, or at least in the latest episodes. I greatly anticipate what will come next. I am enjoying this season well enough although there was a lot of confusion what with the first episode (because why not confuse the crap out of you after how long it’s been between seasons?). Still, I’m left dying to know what happens next. When does the season end?!

Characters & Voice Actors List

Yumeko Jabami

Ryouta Suzui

Yumeko’s classmate. Cowardly and poor, he quickly ends up being treated as Maeri’s livestock, and is called ‘Pochi’ (a common name for a dog). However, he is saved from this predicament by Yumeko.

Meari Saotome
