Honey’s Highlights

You know, I like to rag on school anime hard because usually when they are studying something special, it is like magic, swordplay, or something like that. But this? THIS looks amazing! Compulsive gambling where your skills determine your social status? Heck yes!

I like how it seems like the characters snap and go from normal students to super aggressive and condescending towards each other. It's like seeing a new dimension to character archetypes.

Honey-chan, no need to read that deeply into it. I mean look at how Yumeko acts around gambling? This is going to be slightly ecchi too! I expect plenty of fan service. This is like No Game No Life where you have risk, but it seems to be a bit more intense. Yumeko is probably going to have to get herself out of many tight spots.

Gamling anime fans like fans of Kaji, will like Kakegurui. Even though it is sports, the MC is a risktaker in One Outs. You also have Akgaki, but fans of Kaji MUST know about Akagi already.

Synopsis

Gambling is my reason for existence.

The famous Hyakkaou Private Academy has a social class system. The top of the school, the School Council, is controlled by gambling. If you win you enter heaven - if you lose, hell. In this insane academy, those good at gambling are the envy of everyone, and those who aren’t suffer.

One day, a girl transfers into this academy. A girl called Yumeko Jabami...

Three Episode Impression

Anime of the summer. You’re welcome. Bye. Just kidding. But in all honestly, Kakegurui has to be one of the best anime we have seen in a while. Combining thriller aspects, with gambling, a school, and so much drama and perception it will make your head hurt, Kakegurui is close to being a masterpiece. The art jumping from standard quality to very high and detailed quality is something that we have come to love. After Yumeko Jabami transfers in, she starts toppling student gamblers who are quite powerful, until she loses her own match and becomes indebted to the tune of over 500,000 USD. From there on out, this girl, demon, or just plain ghost, is going to wreak havoc on the school one way or another breaking down the power of the student council one by one. 10/10 we are here for this show. We will keep watching this show. And we will also tell everyone that we know, to watch Kakegurui.
