Kakegurui is a Japanese movie/series produced in Japan in 2019 and Directed by Tsutomu Hanabusa. It is still running as a series on Netflix.
The story is set at a High-Class Elite School in Japan called Hyakkaou Private Academy. The students that attend the school are all from high profile families with many future leaders in the student body.
The difference between Hyakkaou private academy and other schools is that the Academy focuses on gambling. Students are ranking depending on how much money they give to the Student Council. In the council, students gamble against each other, and if they win, they earn prestige and popularity among their peers. However, if they lose, they become slaves (housepets) to the council’s other members.
They receive nicknames like “Kitty” and “Doggy” and wear tag collars around their necks. These Housepets who have not cleared their debts by the time they graduate pay their debts with their lives.
Yumeko Jabami is a second-year student who is beautiful and intelligent. However, she is a compulsive gambler that gambles for the thrill of gambling, not for the money and social standing that the other students strive for.
She does not believe in playing by the rules and does not use logic either, which results in upsetting the other student body members. Added to this, was the fact that she had an uncanny ability to sniff out gambling scams.
Most of the series revolves around how the student body frantically tries to shut her down. The scenes show Yumeko Jabami beating her opponents, including the President of the Student Body Council. There are, however, lots of twists and turns and we don’t know the conclusion yet as the series is still running on Netflix, with season 3 due to be released in early 2021.
