Kakegurui Live Action Film
You heard it right folks, ANOTHER Live action adaptation. This time its for Homura Kawamoto and Toru Naomura's Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler. Yen Press, who licensed the manga, described the story as:
Hyakkaou Private Academy. An institution for the privileged with a very peculiar curriculum. You see, when you're the sons and daughters of the wealthiest of the wealthy, it's not athletic prowess or book smarts that keep you ahead. It's reading your opponent, the art of the deal. What better way to hone those skills than with a rigorous curriculum of gambling? At Hyakkaou Private Academy, the winners live like kings, and the losers are put through the wringer. But when Yumeko Jabami enrolls, she's gonna teach these kids what a high roller really looks like!
Are you excited for this adaptation or does it seem like yet another blemish on the anime to live adaptation process. Could this be the GOOD live action adaptation that we never knew we needed? You be the judge. The film is scheduled to release May 2019. The second season of the anime debuts January 8th.
