Kakegurui Anime Gets 2nd Season
posted on by Egan Loo
The "Hyakkaou Private Academy Cultural Festival" event announced on Saturday 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 anime adapts Homura Kawamoto and Tōru Naomura's manga of the same name. The anime premiered on Tokyo MX in Japan on July 1, and the series later aired on TV Aichi, RKB Mainichi Broadcasting, and BS11. Netflix Japan began streaming the series on July 2, and will premiere outside of Japan in 2018.
Yen Press is releasing the original manga in English under the title Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler, and it 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) directed the anime at MAPPA, and Yasuko Kobayashi (Attack on Titan, Garo the Animation, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Shakugan no Shana) was in charge of the series scripts. Manabu Akita (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure episode animation director, design assistant) designed the characters. TECHNOBOYS PULCRAFT GREEN-FUND (Witch Craft Works, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!!) handled the anime's music.
