Kakegurui, the series about a school that collects gambling addicts, is getting a live-action adaptation of its Kakegurui Twins spinoff. Just kidding, the school doesn’t collect gambling addicts, rather the whole school is based around gambling!
Mary Saotome is one of the first students against whom Yumeko had gambled against and now she will get her own live-action series.
The plot will capture the first time Mary joined the Hyakkaou Private Academy and everything she had to face before Yumeko entered the scene.
The live-action series adaptation of the Kakegurui Twins manga has just revealed a new trailer that previews the theme song of the series. Amazon Prime will premiere the series starting 26th March.
The new trailer shows Mary Saotome’s impactful entry at the Hyakkaou Academy. She picked up the gambling culture of the school sooner than expected and became a high-risk player. Her rise to power was unprecedented.
Some high-tension conversations take place in the gambling hall in the trailer. A surprise appearance will also be made by Yumeko Jabami and Ryota Suzui in the upcoming series!
Soshi Sakiyama performs the theme song of the series, “Against the Tide” (Gyakko). The key visual of the series has also been revealed.

The visual shows Mary as the main character and some other new characters are also present. Yumeko and Ryota are also present in the visual.
The series will debut with eight episodes and two episodes will premiere per week. It is a prequel to the original Kakegurui and the plot takes place one year before the arrival of Yumeko.
Kakegurui has been adapted into a live-action series and awaits its second season that will premiere in May. The staff from the previous live-actions are returning for Kakegurui Twins.
Another heart-pumping gambling series awaits us which will be filled with sadism, masochism and crazy laughter!
Kakegurui is an anime based on a manga of the same name written by Homura Kawamoto and illustrated by Toru Naomura. It is directed by Yuichiro Hayashi and is animated by MAPPA.
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.
