A new visual for the upcoming Summer 2017 anime Kakegurui (Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler), based on the manga by Homura Kawamoto and Tooru Naomura, has been revealed. In the center of the visual we see Yumeko, our main character, and the president of the student council, Kirari Momobami, surrounded by other characters of the story.
It has also been announced that on 23 June 2017 there will be a premium pre-screening event. Entry will be free of charge and fans will be able to watch Episodes 1 and 2 before they are broadcast. The special guests who will participate in a talk event after the screening are Saori Hayami (voice of Yumeko Jabari), Minami Tanaka (Meari Saotome), and Tatsuya Tokutake (Ryota Suzui). The event will feature a game where the winner will receive official anime merchandise.
For those unfamiliar with the manga, it is currently being serialized in Square Enix’s Gangan Joker and is about a school which ranks their students through gambling. The anime will be broadcast in Japan starting July 2017 on MBS, TOKYO MX and other broadcasting stations.
