Kawamoto creates the Japanese manga series Kakegurui. Tōru Nomura does the illustrations for this series. A Japanese anime adaptation of the manga was produced by MAPPA and aired from July 1 to September 23, 2017. Additionally, a live-action drama adaptation was released in 2018.
‘Kakegurui’ was the name of the anime’s second season, which aired from January 8 until March 26, 2019. The Netflix anime is based on the Japanese manga of the same name, and it is one of the most popular shows on Netflix. This series is animated and produced expertly by MAPPA. Here is everything you need to know about the third season of Kakegurui, including the Kakegurui season 3 release date and more.
Kakegurui season 3 release date
Neither Netflix nor MAPPA has provided any official confirmation that the show will be renewed. Although the show airs on Netflix, it does not necessarily mean that Netflix has the final say. However, Netflix does not own the renewal rights to the series, even though it has licensing rights for the series outside of Japan. It will be up to MAPPA and the Japanese networks whether they want to proceed with the series. We should keep our fingers crossed that we will hear the renewal news soon.
It should also be noted that the current COVID-19 situation would have ruined any renewal plans. The crisis will probably not shut down production completely, but it will certainly slow it down. Initially, it was anticipated that the new season would premiere in the fall of 2020, but now our best guess is that it will debut in 2022.
What has happened in Kakegurui Seasons 1 and 2?
Kakegurui introduces us to the world of gambling by introducing the Hyakkou Private Academy, where students are taught how to be successful gamblers in the future. Our first chapter showed us first-hand how the worst students suffered significant financial and self-esteem setbacks. The misery ends when Yumeko Jabami, a transfer student who gambles compulsively, enters the picture.
The warped hierarchy of Yumeko’s institution is on the verge of being destroyed. Throughout the novel, we learn that her endearing exterior hides a gambling addiction that has led to her psychosis. On the other hand, she deciphers and revolts against the cheating techniques used by the kids from higher socioeconomic classes. Now, what will Yumeko’s next challenge be? During Kakegurui Season 3, she will have to deal with new challenges.
What will happen in Kakegurui season 3?
Kakegurui Season 3 has piqued the interest of many fans who want to find out more. The show makers haven’t revealed much information about the future season’s plot. Additionally, there are no trailers or teasers for the new series available. As a result, predicting what will happen to the program shortly is quite tricky.
Since Rei Batsubami is one of the characters developed exclusively for the anime series, Kakegurui’s second season concluded with a filler episode. On the other hand, the season’s climax left the audience thinking about the next election. According to how Kakegurui Season 3 begins, the plot may pick up right where Season 2 left off, or the writers may choose to jump directly into the battle between the Momobami sisters.
Kakegurui Season 3 Cast

What is the basic story of Kakegurui season 3?
Hyakkou Private Academy is the setting for Kakegurui’s story. Several of Japan’s wealthiest children attend this high-class elite school. The school hierarchy isn’t based on academic performance or quality but on how good the students are at gambling. In the said school, students are ranked based on the amount of financial aid they provide to the student council. As a result of earning the favor of the gambling committee, students gain popularity, prestige, and connections.
The unlucky ones, which are not so popular, fall into debt, become house enslaved people, and cater to the whims and fancies of the student body. As pets cannot clear their debts, they receive ‘life schedules,’ which dictate their destiny as they must pay the debt back with their lives.
Is there a third-season trailer available?
As of now, there has been no announcement of a trailer for the third season since there has been no news of its renewal. Keep an eye on this space, as we will update it as soon as anything official is announced.
