Dan has been writing for UK Anime Network since 2013, and has been the site's Anime Editor since August 2017.


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.
