Kakegurui Anime Reveals Second Phase Plans

kakeguruiThe Kakegurui anime—which adapts the gambling manga by Homura Kawamoto and Toru Naomura—will continue its high-stakes storytelling. Plans for a second phase were revealed during a themed event in Japan this weekend, so look forward to more of the series in the future.

In the meantime, the first season has yet to make its debut on Netflix outside of Japan. While there’s currently no premiere date for phase two, the first season is coming to the streaming service this year.


Here’s how Netflix describes it:

There is one absolute rule in gambling — at the end of the day, there is a winner and a loser. The winner gains riches and prestige, while the loser is branded a failure and left with nothing. In the silence leading up to the moment that separates winners and losers, instincts are sharpened and desires reach the point of ecstasy. This is a harsh microcosm of life in a capitalist society. Why are people captivated by a world filled with risk? What lies beyond the madness? As the class system of modern society crumbles, an unprecedented adrenaline-pumping anime sweeps the world.
