Two more cast members have been announced for Kakegurui, an upcoming TV anime based on the high stakes high school gambling manga written by Homura Kawamoto and illustrated by Toru Naomura. The new cast members include:
Tomikazu Sugita as Kaede Manyuuda, the accountant of the Hyakkaou Private Academy student council.
And Mayu Udono as Luna Yomozuki, an officer of the Hyakkaou Private Academy student council.
The story of Kakegurui is set in Hyakkaou Private Academy, a prestigious school where a student's social standing is determined not by academic or athletic prowess, but rather by their skill at high-stakes gambling. The student council rules Hyakkaou with an iron fist, until a mysterious and beautiful transfer student named Yumeko Jabami arrives...
The original Kakegurui manga is published in Square Enix's Monthly Gangan Joker shōnen manga magazine. An English language version of the original Kakegurui manga is available via digital distribution from Yen Press under the title Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler. The Kakegurui TV anime is directed by Yuichiro Hayashi and features animation by MAPPA.
Kakegurui will begin its Japanese broadcast in the Summer season of 2017.
