(Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler

manga by Katsura Saiki
as well as Taku Kawamura
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

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.
