Are you ready to get your gambling freak on?! The live action adaption of Homura Kawamoto’s manga “Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler” is getting a second season. The reveal came at an event held in the Kazuraga venue in Tokyo to celebrate the Blu-Ray/DVD release of the live action “Kakegurui” series, which premiered on MBS January 14, 2018 and TBS’ slot Dramaism on January 16, 2018.
The main cast will reprise their roles for the second season including Minami Hamabe, who plays the main character Yumeko Jabami. Kakegurui season two and live action film are planned for release in Spring 2019.
And to add to the excitement, the TV anime series is also returning. The announcement came in January at the “Hyakkaou Private Academy Cultural Festival” event that the broadcast of a second Kakegurui anime season has been green-lit. The anime news website Anime Recorder previously hosted an image with the announcement.
The Kakegurui manga is written by Homura Kawamoto and illustrated by Tōru Naomura, which began serialization in Square Enix’s Gangan Joker from 2014 and is licensed in English by Yen Press.
Yen Press describe the manga as:
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!
Netflix currently runs both the TV anime and live-action versions of Kakegurui.
