Additional cast for the upcoming anime Kakegurui: Compulsive Gamer by Homura Kawamoto (story) and Tooru Naomura (art) has been revealed. Mariya Ise has been cast as Midari Ikishima and Karin Nanami as Yuriko Nishinotouin.
Since 25 April 2017, the cast for the student council began being announced one by one. Ise’s character, Midari, is the beautiful president of the student council and Nanami’s character, Yuriko, is the leader of the traditional culture research group. On the official Twitter account of Kakegurui, we can see a video message from the cast.
The manga is currently being serialized in Square Enix’s GanGan Joker. The story takes place in a school where the caste is decided by gambling and shows how main character Yumeko enjoys the risks of gambling. The spin-off Kakegurui (Midari) drawn by Yuichi Hiiragi with Midari as the main character is available in Square Enix’s manga application ‘Manga UP!’. The anime adaptation of Kakegurui is scheduled to air this summer.
