Sentai Filmworks has announced that it has acquired Studio MAPPA’s Kakegurui XX, the sequel to the stylishly high-stakes gambling anime Kakegurui. Sentai will distribute the series to audiences in the United States, Canada and Latin America.
At Hyakkao Private Academy, Yumeko Jabami’s star rises just as the student council’s reputation starts to dim. In the shadows of the council’s dwindling power, discord reigns supreme. In a bold effort to rebalance the social scales, student council president Kirari Momobami intends to place her bet on the election for the council’s next president. Everyone starts with a single chip, and at the end of 30 days, whoever holds the most becomes the president of the Momobami Clan. But chips aren’t the only things students can wager as they fight tooth and nail to ascend to the council presidency, and Yumeko Jabami intends to clean house no matter the prizes she must risk in the betting pool.
Kakegurui XX is directed by Yuichiro Hayashi and Kiyoshi Matsuda and is produced by studio MAPPA. Yasuko Kobayashi provides series composition.
The series stars Saori Hayami as Yumeko Jabami, Minami Tanaka as Mary Saotome, Tatsuya Tokutake as Ryota Suzui and Miyuki Sawashiro as Kirari Momobami.
Sentai will release Kakegurui XX on home video in Q1 2022.
