Yumeko Jabami is a beautiful girl who has just transferred into this school not knowing what is about to come. Surprisingly, she’s pretty skilled at gambling and she surpasses most of the students.

Knowing how skilled Yumeko is, Itsuki Sumeragi, who’s the daughter of a rich CEO of a toy company, challenges her. She’s known to never lose a game. Therefore, Yumeko becomes thrilled. Itsuki uses her privilege as much as she can, uses the cards made by her father’s company, and defeats Yumeko. She wins 20 million yen from Yumeko.
Now since Yumeko was defeated and she needed the money back, she offers Itsuki to gamble with her again. Itsuki accepts the offer. Let me tell you something dark, Itsuki makes an offer that if Yumeko loses this game, she’s going to hand over her finger and toenails to her nail shop. Pretty dark, eh? Little did she know, our MC has picked up on her tricks and will now defeat her. After the battle with Itsuki, Yumeko gets invited to the Traditional Culture Research Society’s clubroom. She sees Mary adding 40 million yen more into her current debt. Now, the Student Council President challenges Yumeko to a Life or Death match. OOF, I got goosebumps.

Debt keeps on growing on the losers and the rich get richer.
This season begins with the invitation of a member of the president’s family. Midari and Yumeko get invited by them to a game, and both of them agree and play. Before the first move of the game begins, Kirai introduces his distant relatives who’re known to be intense gamblers.
This game is known as the Finger Cutting Guillotine game, it was presided over by Inaho Yamoto who’s monitoring everything.

Kakegurui: Picture Drama (2017)
The three original picture drama short films were included in the very first season of Kakegurui. It was released in early 2018. These shorts portray the funny sides of the students and them actually having fun instead of being in intense gambling situations. These short films are only available in Japanese dubs. So, if you want to watch it, you’re gonna have to watch it in subs, YAYYY!
Yumeko Jabami is one of the main characters in the anime, “Kakegurui”. She’s highly intelligent and is the perfect definition of “beauty with brains”. She’s smart when it comes to observing the tricks used by others. Although she faced a lot of defeats in the anime, she came back even stronger. This proves that she just needs some time to learn about her opponents’ moves.
Since Yumeko is in an elite school, she’s quite rich. She has this dark side to her where she becomes too intense while gambling. Her eyes glow red, and it is something everyone needs to see. She’s mostly wearing Hyakkaou Academy’s uniform with her jet-black hair flowing all the way back to her waist. She’s definitely one of the prettiest characters with a badass attitude. She’s the type of person you wouldn’t wanna mess with.
Kirai Momobami is one of the main antagonists in the anime. She’s quite smart herself and is always challenging people around her. In fact, her blue lipstick makes her look very extraordinary and kind of intimidating. Once Yumeko saw her struggling, that’s when Yumeko Jabami stepped in and did her best to win the battle. Anyways, she’s quite prominent in the anime and you feel chills when you see this character.
Ryota Suzui is one of the main characters in the anime too. He stands by Yumeko Jabami’s side. He is her first friend and has always supported her. We all need a friend like Ryota Suzui so bad. Ryota is a naive guy and in fact, is a nice guy, he treats everyone nicely but the thing is, he’s kind of an easy-going individual. He gets pushed around by most people at school. Ever since Yumeko Jabami came, he gets saved by her. The chemistry between these characters is really nice.
That’s it for the Kakegurui Watch Order. I hope you guys understood the watch order of Kakegurui. There’s nothing to be confused about, it only has two seasons and that’s that. Don’t forget to comment and let us know your thoughts! See you guys on the next blog!
