Based on Homura Kawamoto and Tohru Naomura’s hit gambling manga, this new TV drama will premiere this 14th January. It will star live-action Saki’s Minami Hamabe as Yumeko Jabami herself, as well as Mahiro Takasugi as Ryouta Suzui.
Tsutomu Hanabusa is directing the live-action TV series, which will debut in Japan on 14th January. It previously received an anime adaptation by MAPPA and Netflix last year. Here’s how Yen Press, which officially distributes the manga in English, describes the series:
Hyakkaou Private Academy. An institution for the privileged with a very peculiar curriculum. You see, when you’re the sons and daughters of the wealthiest of the wealthy, it’s not athletic prowess or book smarts that keep you ahead. It’s reading your opponent, the art of the deal. What better way to hone those skills than with a rigorous curriculum of gambling? At Hyakkaou Private Academy, the winners live like kings, and the losers are put through the wringer. But when Yumeko Jabami enrolls, she’s gonna teach these kids what a high roller really looks like!
