A flyer from this year's AnimeJapan 2017 event revealed on Thursday that the television anime adaptation of Homura Kawamoto and Tōru Naomura's Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler manga will premiere in July and run for 12 episodes.
The show stars Saori Hayami as Yumeko Jabami, Minami Tanaka as Meari Saotome, and Tatsuya Tokutake as Ryōta Suzui.
Yen Press describes the series:
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!
Yuichiro Hayashi (Garo the Animation, PES: Peace Eco Smile) is directing the anime at MAPPA, and Yasuko Kobayashi (Attack on Titan, Garo the Animation, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Shakugan no Shana) is in charge of the series scripts. Manabu Akita (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure episode animation director, design assistant) is designing the characters.
