Unlike many schools, attending Hyakkaou Private Academy prepares students for their time in the real world. Since many of the students are the children of the richest people in the world, the academy has its quirks that separate it from all the others. By day, it is a normal school, educating its pupils in history, languages, and the like. But at night, it turns into a gambling den, educating them in the art of dealing with money and manipulating people. Money is power; those who come out on top in the games stand at the top of the school.

Yumeko Jabami, a seemingly naive and beautiful transfer student, is ready to try her hand at Hyakkaou's special curriculum. Unlike the rest, she doesn't play to win, but for the thrill of the gamble, and her borderline insane way of gambling might just bring too many new cards to the table.

"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 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

As someone who has been keeping up to date with the manga, Kakegurui was an anime I've been looking forward to this season. However, knowing that this is going to be a Netflix show made me pretty frustrated, but I went on to watch the show through other ways.

What do I think about Kakegurui? It's very faithful to the original source material. Kudos to MAPPA for getting much of what made the manga great, with the art and character expressions being accurate. Though not as interesting and suspenseful like other gambling anime, the show still keeps it entertaining throughout. Characters add so much emotion to read more
