A second season of the Kakegurui (Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler) anime series was announced at the "Hyakkaou Private Academy Cultural Festival" special event on Saturday, which was hosted by the video content planning and production company Avex Pictures. More details will be revealed at a later date.

Drawn by Homura Kawamoto and Tooru Naomura, Kakegurui began its serialization in Gangan Joker in March 2014. The magazine has also been serializing the series' prequel manga by Katsura Saiki as well as Taku Kawamura's 4-koma spin-off since September 2015 and December 2016, respectively. A third spin-off manga drawn by Yuuichi Hiiragi, which focuses on the character Midari Ikishima and her past, has been serialized in Manga UP magazine since February 2017. The ninth volume of Kakegurui, the sixth volume of Saiki's prequel manga, the third volume of Kawamura's 4-koma spin-off, and the second volume of Hiiragi's Kakegurui Midari spin-off manga are all scheduled for a January 27 release.

The manga inspired a 12-episode TV anime by studio MAPPA in Summer 2017, which concluded with an anime-original story. A live-action TV series adaptation is set to premiere on MBS' "Doramaism" (Dramaism) programming block on January 14.

Netflix streamed the anime series in Japan and plans to stream it outside of Japan this year. Yen Press licensed the manga for North American release and published the third compiled volume in November 2017.

Wow, I did not expect this to happen since they came up with original ending. I hope they would stick the story to the manga itself because it's far better.

Wow, then what was the fucking point of that anime-original ending? They should've adapted the tower game and then end the season. It would've been the perfect spot to end and the next chapter would've been the best spot to continue from. Well, they better adapt that tower game because it's literally the best thing Kakegurui's got to offer.

So even after an anime-original ending they still went ahead and greenlit a second season? What the hell was the original ending for then? Whatever, I'll go ahead and watch for more mindless entertainment.

First season didn't really do the manga justice at some points, particularly with that questionable AO finale. Hopefully this new set will prove more loyal to the text as these next couple arcs are pretty hype from what I've heard.

That Anime ending isnt the end of the world they can keep adapting the manga like nothing happened.

Noragami did something similar and everything turned ok but I dont remember well since that was some time ago

Oh, that's just great news. I already thought that the continuation will not be due to poor sales of the first season.

I know it's not the end of the world but when a second season is announced it's only natural to question what the point was for an original ending. Maybe they were trying to play it safe just in case S2 didn't happen. But like you said, they can pretend that last episode never happened, other anime have done the same thing before.

In my opinion, it all depends on how much this episode corresponds to the author's intention for the original end of the series.

IMHO, it is the same case as with Noragami S1. Production commitee decided that it is better to make anime-original arc for season final than rushing the next manga arc. Plans to make or not to make S2 have nothing to do with it.

I might be wrong, but main goal of anime adaptation, is to boost sales of original source material (LN/Manga etc.) maybe manga got such boost that they decided to make another anime season?

i thought you were wrong so i got out of my way to search how much did it sell and in the end... you are right
i didnt count but the bluray discs only got three versions and sold less than 1500 units
i just watched and its nothing special, but i wasnt expecting it to have low sales, and much less still have a second season whilst having bad sales...
maybe people watched it a lot in tv?

I wonder when Netflix is actually releasing the show this year.

Omg yes! I liked it and started reading the manga, it's pretty good. I really didn't expect it would get a second season, I am hyped. This random fake news blog ended up right! XD
Just wondering how will they deal with the original end, although it didn't "break" anything important to the plot.. There are some really fucking good chapters ahead, now I really want to see them animated.

Sometimes I just don't understand how the anime industry and its higher ups think.

What's the point of all this if you ended a 1st season with original ending, and announced a live action TV series. I guess the one good point of this manga is a really nice art.

I don't really mind a sequel since from the little bit that I've read. Note I read this a bit before the ending of the anime, but from what I've checked its kinda interesting (had realized I do need to update it).

Now... I'm gonna ask, why make an original ending to begin with? Then again, as far as its concerned apparently the goal wasn't the sales of the anime, but the boost of the manga sales which apparently worked.

I'll watch more of this though of course.

Surprised that this is getting a sequel so soon considering I heard the ending was an original ending. Well, I'll be looking forward to Hayami's performance, I especially remember that one episode where she was all intense, it was great.

People, one more time: anime original ending =/= no possibility to continue the manga plot. Original arc here did not affect the plot any way. You could think of it as a filler if you want.


Heck, there are a bunch of titles that have anime-original ending contradictory with manga plot and thay were continued using manga plot later and anime-original part was just ignored.
