Ready for more high stakes gambling and riskier betting? Easy, soon you will get your chance. The official website for the anime adaption of Homura Kawamoto and Toru Naomura’s gambling manga Kakegurui confirmed that the series is getting a second season. Titled “Kakegurui xx”, the next season will focus on the student council election at Hyakkaou Private Academy. Of course gambling will be used to decide who will succeed current Student Council president Kirari Momobami.
The first season of Kakegurui was animated by MAPPA and run for 12 episodes from July to September 2017. Netflix is currently streaming the series. The entire vocal cast returns to reprise their roles, as well as the staff with director Yuichiro Hayashi taking the helm once again. Kiyoshi Matsuda joins the crew as co-director.
