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.Originally Written By Epic Dope
