Netflix introduced this famous show in the year 2018 and it continued till 2019. Though the first season was incredibly appreciated and valued by the Audience, everybody expected a season 2 of it, which started streaming in 2019, but sadly, the climax of season two was confusing to the audience. It raised a lot of questions on the audience’s side. So, naturally, season 3 of this manga-adapted anime show was highly expected.
We are in the year 2022, and it’s been three years since the release of the second season, and there is still no news about its sequel, neither from Netflix nor from MAPPA.
Are you one of the admirer’s of Kakegurui? Are you looking for an answer as to why the third season has not been released yet? Are you keen to know when will the sequel be announced? Look no more! We are here to answer all your queries! But before diving in, let us recapitulate a little about the famous thriller series.
The Cast Of Kakegurui
1. Yumeko Javami
She is a mysterious transfer student at Hyakkaou Private Academy and is addicted to gambling. Her eyes glow red, with long straight black hair. She could easily deduce the cunningness of the other high-class students and turned their successes into failures. She never cared for the school’s rule and gambled just for the sake of it.
2. Mary Saotome
Mary was Yumeko’s classmate and was a top-rated gambler just like Yumeko, but she cares for her social status rather than enjoying the game like Yumeko. She aimed to become the Student Council’s President.
3. Ryota Suzui
She was a very poor gambler. He had a massive debt to Mary and served as her pet.
4. Kirari Momobami
She is the president of the student council. She made students with the highest debts into house pets who had to serve other students.
5. Rei Bastubami
She is a servant in the Momobami club who arranges for gambling and stays out of gambling herself.
The StoryLine Of Kakegurui
The story is set on Hyakkaou Private Academy where rules and modules are not as simple as a typical educational institution. They are based on the grounds of gambling. They master the students in the art of gambling. Those who win enjoy fame and authority, and those who fail are made slaves and named as pets to serve other students.
But, their world turned upside down, as a new student, Yumeko Javami, enters the scene. Her character is portrayed as a compulsive gambler, who gambles not to earn money and fame, but purely for the thrill of it. As she tries her hand on the gambling field, she gets renowned as a strong competition to her opponents. She exposes the cheating methods of upper-class students and teaches them the actual meaning of fight.
In Season 1, we found Yumeko being made a Pet by Yuriko, though it was for a short period of time as she succeeded in defeating her opponents. Season 2 showcases the closure of the Hyakkaou’s council by President Kirari Momobami and a search for a new winner has begun who will become her successor, and the addicted Gambler, Yumeko is in the race, without knowing that Mary Saotome was aiming for the same.
So, what challenges are waiting for her in the near future? Is she going to risk her life for the sake of gambling? We will get our queries solved in Season 3!
Kakegurui Season 3 :- Renewal!
Kakegurui – Compulsive gambler, a manga-adapted anime series consists of a total of 14 volumes, of which, 10 volumes have already been aired in Season 1 and Season 2 successively. Season 1 was liked a lot by the viewers, whereas, Season 2 was not very clear and there were many loopholes in it. So, we can expect a renewal of this episode soon.
But, there is still no declaration from either the online streaming partner or the MAPPA. Renewal of any series depends upon the popularity of that show and the available source of information.
Is There A Lack Of Source?
According to our estimates and observations, each season works around 5 volumes. Thus out of 14 volumes, only 4 volumes are left to produce the sequel. There is more than enough content left to work with, but it is being guessed that more volumes are going to be released in the market soon. This might be a potential reason for the delay in the release!
Is The Pandemic Responsible?
Nobody anticipated that we are going to be hit by a global pandemic. As a result, all our industries, starting from business to entertainment, faced a huge loss. They are not performing well. Production of a lot of films and series have been delayed till situations become normal. This might be another potential reason for the delay.
Kakegurui Season 3 Release Date: Conclusion
As stated earlier, there is still no news at the end of Netflix or the animation house. But, anime lovers need not worry as the show is quite popular among the fans and thus, there are high chances of the release of its sequel anytime soon. Let’s not forget that the show is not canceled, it is just delayed for a while, due to some unexplainable reasons.
We might expect good news at the end of 2022 or the beginning of 2023. If you are new to the anime world, we urge you to watch this psychological gambling series Kakegurui, and who knows, you might end up being an anime fan just like the rest of us!
