Kakegurui is one of the few anime that mixes the unholy combination of gambling, school, and pleasure. The anime is not afraid to hold back any punches to depict underage students gambling, all while looking so aesthetic!
The series story is set in a posh private school where the elite send their kids to study. However, Hyakkaou Private Academy is not that usual as one of the main study subjects is gambling!
The inner workings of the school are so twisted that students make bets, and if they lose matches, they are relegated to livestock.
The second movie in the live-action adaptation of Kakegurui titled Last Resort: Russian Roulette will premiere in theatres on June 1. The film was originally set to release on April 29, 2021, but got postponed due to the ongoing pandemic.

Hyakkaou Private Academy, a regular school for ultra-rich kids by day and a grotesque gambling den by night, has an inbuilt social hierarchy.
Based on how one performs in gambling and manipulating their peers, students are ranked best to worst, the top rankers being the most powerful.
Yumeko Jabami, a transfer student who gambles just for the thrill of it, becomes the new challenger and the talk of the Hyakkaou’s elite student council.
Her insane love for gambling presents her with new challenges as she climbs her way to the top.
