Hyakkaou Private Academy is a school for the privileged and influential, playing host to the children of businessmen and politicians. However, unlike other schools, students at Hyakkaou do not pride themselves on academic achievement. Instead, they value strategic prowess and the ability to read people. Come nightfall, many places on campus transform into gambling dens overseen by the student council, where players compete for rank, money, and more.

Ryouta Suzui spends his days as a "house pet"—a student ranked in the bottom one hundred, forced to serve his peers. His circumstances soon change when a mysterious new transfer student, Yumeko Jabami, arrives at the academy. Despite Suzui's warnings, Yumeko quickly becomes immersed in the school's gambling scene, facing off against several high-profile opponents. Her exploits draw the attention of the student council members, who start meddling in her affairs. Suzui tries his best to keep Yumeko out of trouble, but to his chagrin, she turns out to be the type of person best suited to attend Hyakkaou: a compulsive gambler.

Preliminary (6/? eps)
This manga doesn’t have a review and I consider it deserve at least a short one, even though it has just 6 chapter for the moment. That why I will not give too much information, otherwise I will spoil you. Kagerui is manga about rich peoples. The action happens in a private school where are enrolled the progenitors of the elites (politicians, rich bastards, etc.). But this school is pretty unique; not only is full of rich punks, but it has a special system, that revolves around... gamble. Yes, the whole school is a damn casino, in which those kids bet money... and their life’s... ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (80/? eps)

In theory Kakegurui is about gambling, but given the fact that the protagonist has what can only be explained as some supernatural ability to always win any roll or draw no matter the odds any tension is completely broken and interest on the story.

While the story has a lot of potential it is crippled with the absurd luck of the protagonist, it is also painful that other characters do not point it out at all or even bother to try to beat her.

My recomendation is to enjoy the visuals and disconnect your brain while reading do not expect any turns or anything like that.

Preliminary (9/? eps)
(Update 2023- Yeah I wrote this when I was like 17/16? I am leaving this review up but it dosent represent 100% of my opinion's on kakegurui or my current writing style)

Wow, again, we seem to have people who love a manga about crazy people in a school with a dumb premise. This must be one of the worst trends ever, the trend of having a special school which makes people insane and exploring their psyche. Oh, and by Psyche, I mean seeing them be crazy. So why is this Bad?

THE PREMISE IS THE WORST- A school built on ILLEGAL acts, aka gambling, which has ...
