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.

Ooh I remember hearing about this a while ago but never gave it a shot. I'll check out the manga, this looks like it'd be really fun.

Yeah I didn't see that coming. Hopefully the production doesn't implode lmao.


Good thing it is not a action series.
I'm shocked, but I guess Altair will come out Fall 2017, or Winter 2018

It seems like I was right when I said it would air in the summer season of this year.

Still think it's to soon but I trust the director and MAPPA hope they will make it a hell of a ride :)

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.
