What if you get enrolled in a school where excellence in Academics and Sports aren’t as important as how well you are at gambling? That’s the premise of a new TV anime by studio, MAPPA, as they announced that they will be animating Homura Kawamoto and Toru Naomura’s gambling manga, Kakegurui. They also revealed a new teaser visual:
The source manga is serialized by Monthly Gangan Joker magazine. It is set on a prestigious school known as Hyakkaou Private Academy, where gambling determines your social status, and not academics nor sports. The school’s student council lords over the students, however, things get turned around as soon as mysterious transfer student, Yumeko Jabami arrives.
While Mappa (Yuri!! on ICE) is animating the series, Garo the Animation’s Yuichiro Hayashi directing it, and Attack on Titan’s Yasuko Kobayashi writing the script. More details for the new anime will be announced in the days to come.
