Similarly crazy gambling, but the mc is more competent. The first episode feels like it could be a tribute to Kaiji, definitely some similarities.
If you ever imagined how Kaiji would look like if the main character was big tiddy girl who gambles not to save herself from life-endangering situations, but rather to put herself into them because it's fun, then look no further.
Both animes are based on high stakes gambling with strategy and cheats. Kaiji has a slower pacing, more complex games and settings and nearly all characters on it are males. On the other hand in Kakegurui most characters are females.
Both stories revolve around gambling and have psychological focus. So far Kakegurui is looking like a more mainstream version of Kaiji with a faster pace (probably), less depth on individual games (probably), a more mainstream artstyle, a high school setting, and wayyyyyyy more females.
Both anime revolve around the theme of gambling - and the gambles come at very high and risky stakes. Furthermore, the gambles are placed over several different types of gambling games in both series. Kakegurui tends to be more fast paced which makes it enjoyable and entertaining, yet Kaiji still manages to keep the thrilling feeling throughout the episodes - making it no less enjoyable.
In terms of mc, the series do differ. In Kakegurui, the mc (Jabami) is a genius and pretty girl, whereas Kaiji (from Kaiji (duh)) is a junkie loser. However, both characters are gambling addicts, and get fired up in the game.
Both animes enter a world of big bets whose objective is to see who wins depending on the conditions, one is to apply the strategies they use to win, or in the riskiest cases need luck.
These two anime have a lot in common in of itself that is based on psychology and mind games. Plus the fact both revolve around high stakes gambling with a lot of back and fourth. In fact the only two differences is i can see is. Kaiji comes from debt while Jabami comes from Riches and one is female the other is male. I also felt like the first episode of Kakegurui was a bit of a tribute to Kaiji as well with the card game on the first episode.
Both have gambling in their main theme. It's just that Kaiji exterminates that genre better. (Opinion) If you have time check it out!
Ok so this anime is basically like Kaiji, but with ecchi, and thats a good thing ;^)
Only two episodes of Kakegurui have been released but there are some obvious similarities between the two shows. And I am actually stoked about the fact there there is another anime about gambling!
In both anime's it seems like outsmarting people in the games they play and how they do it is really important. It seems Kakegurui's pace is a lot faster, since its one game per episode atleaased for now. If I had to explain Kakegurui it would probably be the story of GBK merged with the style and pase of death parada.
-High Risk Bets
-protagonist addict bets
They are both about gambling and a lot of people being in debt to other people.
Kaiji is a more intense and gritty version of Kakegurui with more realistic stakes and consequences. Kaiji is also much more grounded than Kakegurui as well.
Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji is basically a hardcore version of Kakegurui, just without pretty anime girls and way more intense focus on the gambling itself. Both have a similar style interms of expressing the emotions from the characters. If you were already intrigued from the gambling matches in Kakegurui, you will definitely be fascinated from Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji (Don't let it turn you off from the character art style).
Extremely high stakes gambling, but the main character is more serious, and competent. The first episode feels like it could be a tribute to Kaiji, very similar, but Kaiji is for a more mature audience.
both bout gambling, kaiji is more bout the mc surviving through gambling n kakegurui bout the mc having pleasure through gambling
