As previously reported on WOW Japan, high school high-stakes gambling anime “Kakegurui” will be getting a second season. The official broadcast date has been finally released, and the new season will begin airing in January 2019.
Much of the cast from the first season will also be returning to reprise their roles for this new season. Netflix is currently streaming the anime adaptation, as well as the first season of the live-action series. Here’s how Yen Press describes the manga’s story:
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!
