Read this article to find out!
Kakegurui is a Netflix original anime based on the manga of the same name. Though most of the story has been adapted exactly like the anime, there are a few characters that are exclusive to just the series. MAPPA handled the animation and production of the series and has done a wonderful job in retaining some of the best moments from the manga to the anime! This attention to detail and recreating the important things have the fans hooked right from the get-go.
When newcomer Yumeko Jabami arrives at Hykakkaou, the school where one is not judged on their ability in academics or their athletic prowess, but rather on their skill in reading their opponent in a game of poker or blackjack, she teaches her peers what it means to be a real gambler and shakes the very foundation of what the students seem to already know.
More About the Plot
The narrative of the story is quite clear, and it is evident that all that Yumeko Jabami cares about is gambling. However, it has been pointed out by fans of both the manga and the anime that the Netflix series has jumbled about the order of the games a bit and has also introduced characters such as Rei that are exclusive to just the series.
Jabami seems to want to gamble control of the council just for the thrill of it. The plot being a gambling and the numerous games surrounding it; it sure does seem like there is a need for at least another. The terrific response of the fans is an indication of the same it seems.
Season 3 Renewal
There is definitely a huge demand for the return of a third season of the popular Netflix Anime, Kakegurui. However, as of now, Netflix’s official status is pending. The fans have taken to all forms of social media to express their desire for a Season 3 renewal. Netflix has an international license to distribute the series outside of Japan. However, it is not up to them whether to renew the series or not. That decision is up to MAPPA.
News of the same can be expected soon, and it seems safe to say that if there is no such renewal, the creators of the series will have a lot of disappointed fans because of its large following that it has amassed since its release.
