Hello, it’s me again!
(There is like 3-4 of us at most this time of summer so I suppose you know me.)
But what you don’t know about me is how I like my anime!
I like them dark and twisted.
Also, remember to read manga from right to left~
With the Spring Seasons coming to a close, you might wanna consider checking out Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler.
The manga first was published in 22nd of March of 2014. It is written by Homura Kawamoto and drawn by Toory Naomura. Kakegurui was in the third place in the 2nd Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Awards.
The Animation is done by MAPA (who are known for Yuri on Ice!).
Yasuko Kobayashi is the name behind the scripts while Manabu Akita is designing the characters. They were coworkers working on Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure, and now they are together again in Kakegurui.
Saori Hayami and Minami Tanaka (who are known for their work on Fate/Grand Order) also lent their voices for Yumeko and Meari to come alive. Not only them, but you will also hear Reona West and Mirei Minami of Pripara (Yuki Wakai and Yū Seriwaza respectively) and Tataru from FFXIV (Mariya Ise).
I may seem like throwing names at you, but even if I am, just look at this talented cast!
Did I mention they animated Yuri on Ice!? Because they went from cute ice skaters to smug girls who gamble for/with their lives (i ship it).
Trailers For The Anime
The one below has no English subtitles but it would be a shame to not show these visuals and music~
