Hyakkaou Private Academy. An institution for the privileged with a very peculiar curriculum. You see, when you're the sons and daughters of the wealthiest of the wealthy, it's not athletic prowess or book smarts that keep you ahead. It's reading your opponent, the art of the deal. What better way to hone those skills than with a rigorous curriculum of gambling? At Hyakkaou Private Academy, the winners live like kings, and the losers are put through the wringer. But when Yumeko Jabami enrolls, she's gonna teach these kids what a high roller really looks like!

(Ongoing 12-episode Series Preview)
"Kakegurui" easily won my heart from episode 1. Although I've only seen four episodes so far, I was more than excited to write a review about this, and can't wait to see more. Its premise is straightforward, but the execution is stunning. Its strengths lie in its dynamic facial expressions, fair storytelling, and high-quality artistry. The aesthetic expression, in all aspects, always manage to complement the mood and tone of the story. Small details, such as lighting, eyes, mouth, wrinkles, all contribute to the viewer's experience.

The main protagonists Jabami and Suzui both act as archetypal foils to another. This juxtaposition allows read more

Forgive if my review so bad, but I will try my best to not give a spoiler ^^

Kakegurui is, something that high school student should never have. But, it will be interesting if we just watch ^^

Then, why this series become interesting?

Gambling? It's not just like that. It's satisfaction. When you play with your destiny, it will be fun because your nervousity become maximum.

Why did they do that? Because in Hyakkaou private academy, it becomes culture. With so many students are successor of the company, it won't be that difficult to play with million yens.

There are many cute girls like black haired Jabami Yumeko, but read more

Kakegurui has been very impressive in giving the viewer a sense of anticipation by diving into the narrative as to what the stakes are by looking and observing the matches being played. Some of the matches were quite obvious where you can assume what's going to happen next (but I’ve only seen a few, it is still delightful to know what’s about to be decided) but the feeling of being invested into the narrative gives you so much drive to keep wanting to find out what's going to happen. This is truly an entertaining anime that I recommend for anyone that would love feeling the read more

Kakegurui is a show that I personally enjoyed and I will be writing this review without having touched the manga.

Kakegurui gets you interested in the world by throwing you into a game which shows you how this school works and how insane this show really is. The story has kept me entertained so far and as you predict something is gonna happen the game flips itself on its head slaps you and says no.

Amazing would not describe this animation. It shifts from the norm quite regularly by just going insane. When Yumeko figures something out about her opponent the animation gets energetic. With her poses read more
