The upcoming Summer 2017 anime Kakegurui (Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler), based on the manga by Homura Kawamoto and Tooru Naomura, has revealed more preview stills.
The 5 new screenshots show us another side of human nature: that of desires and emotions coming to life when one is exposed to this ‘gambling class system’. You can see all pictures if you click on the source at the bottom of the page.
Also, the Kakegurui Frenzy Campaign has started on Twitter. Starting 22 June 2017, the official Twitter account of Kakegurui will post a preview still of a character each day. Another part of the campaign is a talk event held over Line Live and TwitCasting on 23 June 2017. Viewers get the chance to win a big poster with an original illustration through the game ‘Katsu no wa Dare da? Real Shinri Battle’ (Who will win? The real mental battle). Other goods are also scheduled to be given away through different games.
The online talk event will include the appearance of Saori Hayami (voice of Yumeko Jabari), Minami Tanaka (Meari Saotome), Tatsuya Tokutake (Ryota Suzui), and Yuki Wakai (Itsuki Sumeragi). Hayami, Tanaka, and Tokutake will also participate in the ‘Real Shinri Battle.’
The manga is currently being serialized in Square Enix’s GanGan Joker and takes place in a school where a student caste is decided by gambling. The main character is Yumeko, who enjoys the risk that comes with gambling.
