Swipe, unless you’re a compulsive gambler

This anime series is sweaty… annoyingly sweaty.

When Netflix sends you an email telling you it has added a TV series or movie that you might be interested in, you at least take a look at it, right? This was the case with the arrival of the new animated series (to the platform) Kakegurui: compulsive gambler. We glimpsed a teaser for the series last August, but that’s the last we heard about it. The premise looked good, the animation looked solid, and if similar to the last platform version Devil: crying babyThen it would be worth watching. But after watching all 12 episodes bingely, Kakigurui It is very clear that some audiences but not others; I’m honestly in the latter camp.

If you like schoolgirls in miniskirts, high stockings, skirts with a credit scene, and plenty of explicit sex masquerading as strong passion without much characterization behind it, you’ll love this show. Or, on the other hand, if you like a series of episodic puzzles where the hero discovers tricks used by the opponent only through sheer intuition or something off-screen that is impossible for the audience to pick up, you might enjoy this. And if spending most of the running time of about 24 minutes per episode listening to the increasingly complex and detailed rules of different games of chance sounds fun to you, you’ll love Kakigurui. For me, the sex factor jumps to 11 on a real fast creepy scale without any romance or relationship, the show’s pranks reduce just as quickly, and the mystery element is uninspiring because there’s nothing the viewer can actually figure out, you just have to sit back and wait for things to end. So even though I took the chance KakiguruiNetflix now owns those six hours of my life. The house always wins

More KakiguruiHere is the official promo and summary, if you’re inclined to check it out:

He lives. I bet your life on it. There is one absolute rule in gambling – at the end of the day, there is a winner and a loser. The winner gains wealth and prestige, while the loser is stigmatized as a failure and leaves nothing behind. In the silence that precedes the moment between winners and losers, instincts are sharpened and desires reach the point of ecstasy. This is a harsh microcosm of life in a capitalist society. Why are people captive to a world full of dangers? What lies behind the madness? With the collapse of the class system in modern society, an unprecedented adrenaline-pumping anime is sweeping the world. Based on the manga by Homura Kawamoto and Toru Naomura (the series in the monthly Gangan Joker published by Square Enix), 12 episodes of the series were produced by MAPPA. Kakeguruistars Saori Hayami, Minami Tanaka, Tatsuya Tokutake, Yuki Wakai, Karin Nanami, Mariya Ise, Yu Serizawa, Tomokazu Sugita, Mayu Udono, Ayaka Fukuhara and Miyuki Sawashiro.
