Her name is Mary Saotome—she is brazen, insolent, and defiant, yet highly intelligent. Upon transferring to Hyakkaou Private Academy, where a student's worth is determined by their wits through gambling, she seizes a glorious win against a classmate and immediately captures the attention of the devious student council members.

With the bottom of Hyakkaou's rigorous hierarchy determined by least gambling winnings, the future for Tsuzura Hanatemari looks grim. As Tsuzura's childhood friend, Mary resolves to rise through the ranks and secure enough money to free Tsuzura from the shackles of the unjust system. Mary's perseverance and refusal to lose drive her to surpass and humiliate even the strongest opponents, but certain student council members seem to have greater plans for her.

Kakegurui twin was easily the best entry in the series. As a whole, Kakegurui twin focuses on Mary Saotome as a First-year student at Hyakkaou Academy accompanied by her friend Tsuzura Hanatemari. This is a Canon prequel to the main Kakegurui series.

The opening animation was by far my favorite in terms of looks. The color scheme, the matte look, it all looked really nice and pleasing. The ending animation was also very satisfying with its pastel colors and ...

Mixed Feelings
Before going into Review;
"Kakegurui Twin" is pretty stand alone.
You don't really have to watch the main series to understand what's happening here. Also, it's incomplete.

Though Kakegurui only had 2 seasons, I didn't wanted to watch given the slightly mixed reception it got and some scenes I watched on YT made me wonder if gambling is really the point of the show. But I was still curious to see what made Kakegurui one of the popular gambling anime as it is so I checked Twin and.. I have some mixed opinions.

The story follows "Saotame Mary" in Hyakkaou Academy where not a single day passes without someone ...

Kakegurui Twin, a shaved down version of Kakegurui.

It's the prequel to Kakegurui, but imo it does not add much new information/lore/plot/whatever you wanna call it to the anime show of Kakegurui. You follow Mary as a starting nobody in the gamble school, and just as with Kakegurui, she (and others) try to win games or gain advantages through some kind of scheme or cheating. This is the first shave down in my opinion. I might have different impressions, and I don't know if it is just the source material for this prequel, but the games and the schemes are really not interesting. Sometimes they are ...
