Not content to let high rollers Netflix steal all the limelight, Anime Limited have upped the ante: announcing they will be bringing out the first season of Kakegurui on Collector’s Edition Blu-ray. Though the specifics of this release are far from being finalised - Anime Lmiited having only just played their blind - it is currently penciled in for the first quarter of 2019, so you will have to wait a while yet to 'go all in' on this gambling focused series.

Synopsis: “Hyakkaou Private Academy is no ordinary school. Forget academic studies, this is a school where the key to success is proficiency and nerves of steel in the no-holds-barred gambling around which the entire societal structure of the academy resides. Win big and the world is your oyster; fall into debt and be doomed to a school life of subservience and abuse from those more fortunate than you.

Into this ruthless world steps Yumeko Jabami – a wide-eyed, innocent transfer student who seems like easy pickings for her classmates. However, there’s more than meets the eye to this newcomer: little do they know that Yumeko is a young woman whose passion for gambling and risk-taking knows no bounds, and whose desire to experience the thrills of putting everything on the line will pose a direct threat to the student council that sits atop the academy’s power structure.”

Kakegurui is available in streaming form to said subscribers on Netflix.
