“Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler” is a manga adaptation that was made into an anime series. It aired 12 episodes when it was first released in 2017. Netflix, later on, premiered it in 2018.
It follows the story of the fortunes of students at Hyakkou Private Academy where instead of ranking their students based on their academic ability, they rather encourage them to enhance and refine their skills in gambling.
This anime series is known worldwide for its exciting nature and wide pool of games which lasted for two seasons. Since then, fans have been waiting for the release of Kakegurui Season 3, and here are the details on what is to be expected in the upcoming episodes.
Everything we know about Kakegurui Season 3 Plot
As mentioned earlier the series is adapted from a manga of the same name written by Kawamoto Homura and illustrated by Naomura Tooru.
Since the release of the first two seasons, fans have been waiting for renewal because Season 2 of Kakegurui concluded on a filler, and fans were kept anxious even after the conclusion because the plot about the election was left hanging.
This is where the Kakerugui Season 3 is expected to pick up its plot.
Kakerugui Season 3 might be coming under production soon and is even allowed for production even if there are delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic owing to its popularity.
The final episode of the second season aired on March 31, 2019, which means it has been 2 years since then. The third season was already in talks last 2021, but it wasn’t released.
The anime series is produced by MAPPA on Netflix but there are still no official announcements from them. Still, fans are hoping that the third season is released this 2022.
Expected Characters on the upcoming Season
Yumeko Jabami is the main character of the series. She is a transfer student in the elite Hyakkaou Private Academy. Yumeko is one of the classmates of Ryota Suzui and Mary Saotome.
Another character is Kirari Momobami who is one of the main antagonists. She is in charge of the academy’s hierarchy and is the 105th Student Council President of the Academy. Ririka Momobami on the other hand is the Vice President of the Student Council and is the older identical twin sister of Kirari.
The series also has Runa Yomozuki as one of the characters in the series. She is a Student Council member and is the chairperson of the Election Committee, who acts as a referee in election gambling bouts.
A lot of fans have been also speculating that there might be a possibility that the producers add a few more exclusive characters in Kakegurui Season 3 that aren’t in the manga.
Is there an officially released trailer for the third season?
Unfortunately, as mentioned, there are no official announcements from the producers regarding the upcoming Season. That is why there is no available official trailer yet for the third season.
For now, all we can do is wait for the release of Kakegurui Season 3 and maybe read its manga and volumes to have an idea of what is to be expected.
