2019 is proving to be a blessing in disguise for a lot of anime series as they are getting renewed one after the other, to much delight of the fans.
Kakegurui is a Japanese manga series written by Homura Kawamoto. The illustrations of the series are handled by Tōru Naomura. The anime adaptation of the manga was undertaken by MAPPA and it was aired from July 1 to September 23 2017 in Japan. Apart from that, a live-action drama adaptation in 2018. The second season of the anime, titled, 'Kakegurui ××' was released and that aired from January 8 to March 26, 2019. This Netflix anime is based on the Japanese manga of the same name and it is one of the most popular anime on the platform. The animation and the production of the series are handled excellently by MAPPA. Here is everything you need to know about the third season of Kakegurui.
As of now, there is no official news available for the renewal status of the show, either by Netflix or MAPPA. Even though the program airs on Netflix, it does not necessarily mean that Netflix has the last say in it. Even though Netflix has the licensing rights apart from Japan, it does not hold the renewal rights to the series. Ultimately, it will be the decision of MAPPA and the Japanese networks if they are willing to go forward with the series or not. But, let's keep our hopes up that we will hear the renewal news sometime soon.
The English-dubbed episodes of Kakegurui season 1 and 2 are available on Anime List and Funimation.
The story of Kakegurui is set in Hyakkou Private Academy. It is a high-class elite school that is home to the wealthiest children of Japan. But, funnily enough, the hierarchy of the school is not determined by the academic performance or any other quality, but by the skill of gambling the students have. The students in the said school are ranked by the amount of financial aid they are providing to the student council. The students who earn the favor of the gambling committee earn popularity, prestige, and connections. The unlucky ones, who are not so popular fall in debt, become house slaves and tend to the whim and fancies of the student body. The 'pets' who are unable to clear their debts receive 'life schedules' and it will dictate their future as they have to pay back the debt with their life.
Since there has been no news of the renewal for a third season, there has been no indication of a trailer as of now. But, keep an eye out for this space as we will update it as soon as anything official breaks.
No, no spoiler for the third season is available as of now since the third season has not even been confirmed. Since the finale of season 2, there has been no indication that the show will be renewed for a third season.
