Additional cast members have been announced for Kakegurui, a TV anime adaptation of a manga by Homura Kawamoto and Tooru Naomura. Yuuki Wakai will play the role of Itsuki Sumeragi.
Itsuki Sumeragi is a first-year student who belongs to the student council. She is an ambitious person who challenged the main character, Yumeko, as soon as she transferred. Currently, on the anime’s official Twitter account, video announcements of the additional cast are continuously being uploaded. From tomorrow, we will probably be learning more about the cast of all the student council members!
Kakegurui, serialized in Gangan JOKER (Square Enix), is set in a school where the caste is decided through gambling. It is a gambling manga which depicts Yumeko Jabami, who enjoys the risks that come with gambling. The anime will be on air from Summer 2017.
