An official website has opened and revealed that manga Kakegurui (Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler) will be receiving a TV anime adaptation. The staff of the series has also been revealed.

Synopsis
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! (Source: Yen Press)

Staff
Director: Yuuichirou Hayashi (Garo: Honoo no Kokuin)
Series Composition: Yasuko Kobayashi (Shingeki no Kyojin)
Character Design: Manabu Akita (Zankyou no Terror Animation Director)
Studio: MAPPA

Written by Homura Kawamoto and drawn by Tooru Naomura, Kakegurui has been serialized in Gangan Joker since March 2014. Square Enix published the fifth compiled volume in May 2016, with the sixth volume scheduled to be released on February 22. The series has been published digitally in English as Kagegurui: Complusive Gambler by Yen Press since August 2015. It has also inspired two spin-off manga series which are serialized in the same magazine.

This looks interesting. I just hope that it doesn't have the usual school anime tropes.

It only starts with one but after that it's all non cliche school anime stuff.

Saying you won't watch a show and calling it bad based off a synopsis is stupid. We don't even have a PV yet. We know basically nothing about this adaptation.

And no, I wouldn't look at a show and say "this is bad" without actually watching it, that's nonsensical.


This is actually amusing. People "judge" stuff all the time and make impressions about every piece of information they get from something. Saying something looks bad is different from saying "this is bad". You're basically saying you never got turned off by any of the stuff I've said and never decided not to watch a show based on any of these stuff.

Read dumb synopsis with terrible premise? Watch the show. Genre is not your cup of tea? Watch the show. One minute preview looks bad? Watch the show. Manga passages people shared look appaling? Read the source and watch the show!

Yea, it's pretty clear is not worth it talking to someone like you. Your head is like a brick wall.



You're the one calling a show bad with next to no information and I'm the dense one? Good joke.

@Kittens-kun Sadly I don't have the time to watch every single new show out there so I have to make some cuts and "judge" like that. Even though it's not real judgment but surface like impressions but whatever. Guess it's really hard to comprehend this. Funnily enough all that fuzz because of a simple negative comment. But if it's a positive comment you don't feel like telling people that they have to watch it or read the source. I wonder if you've ever decided not to watch a show because it looked bad (because of synopsis, PV, art etc. etc. etc.) without giving it a ~proper~ try, but probably not, considering your replies. Anyway, let's settle it here, I ain't replying anymore. I won't watch this show because it looks bad IN MY OPINION.

Why not just check the manga before making unfounded
conjectures?


Or let me comment about my impressions? Why do you care? I have watched a lot of stuff to know what I like and what I don't. I guess I can make some predictions about a future airing anime if I want. The same way you see something you will probably dislike and you say "Hmmm, not giving this a try". For instance, when the synopsis is dumb, when there is a genre you dislike, when you see the studio, when you watch an 1min preview etc. I don't need to watch or read shit to give these "unfounded conjectures" because they don't mean shit to anyone apart from me and are just surface like comments. The news is here so people can talk what they want; some people get excited because they like this kind of anime, some people think it'll be shit like many stuff produced nowadays. If you needed to read the source material to give simple impressions based on simple stuff, most people wouldn't make them because it doesn't make sense and because most people here don't read the source materials for up and coming anime. All these kind of stuff is just a filter because most people don't have the time to watch all anime and all manga, so you become picky to already cross from your list stuff you'll probably won't like for whatever reason it is. It's just a fucking remark like most of the others here, the difference it is a negative one.



You're writing it off based on a synopsis. Not a single part of the show has even been shown yet. Just wait until it actually airs to pass judgement on it.

Because I'm obviously trying to make such an argument by writing four words instead of just quickly showing my impression!!!!!

Institution for the sons and daughers of the rich. Already sounds stupid. Another teen centered anime for no reason, by the way. Washed up and boring as well. Wealthy people need their small ones to learn how to gamble because playing this game is what makes you ahead of the others!!!!!!!! Yea, I use whatever word I want to describe something so cheap and lazy like this. The premise sounds ridiculous and downright dumb. The pictures from the manga posted above just make it even more clear: "this is mature and deep, I'm gonna make stupid faces to prove it!". I bet it will be another shit anime like Kaiji (where everything goes wrong and everybody is bad for no reason).

It might turn out to be good (for the same people who like Kaiji and Re:Zero, probably), but it sounds completely cheap, ridiculous, lazy, dumb.

Winter 2018 Anime maybe, Mappa sure is busy for the next year


2018? This seems more likely to come out in the summer season this year honestly. February and March is when most summer line ups gets announced.


Nah this year be to soon for it to get animated as of now their are currently 36 chapters with chapter 37 coming out in a view days unless they plan to make it a 10- episode season their really is not much material so my guess is also that it will be animated somewhere spring or summer 2018

Literally all I know about this series is that the girls constantly make stupid crazy orgasm faces and nothing else. Looks edgy, probably won't be my thing even though it involves gambling and Kaiji is one of my favorite anime ever.



Another buzzword, yay.
