If you like card games, watch Kakegurui. I adored the anime when I first watched it. So, I am sure you will love it too! This piece will tell you what you demand to know for those who have already watched Kakegurui Season 3 and are waiting for it like me. Since the next season is delayed, let’s find out the reasons. And then we will know when it will be released.
Kakegurui: First Release
The first season of Kakegurui aired from July 1, 2017, to September 23, 2017. Yuichiro Hayashi directed the TV series. Homura Kawamoto and Tōru Nomura wrote and illustrated the manga, respectively.
What Happened in Season 1 and 2?
Kakegurui has had 3 seasons. Let’s talk about them quickly before we get to the new season. Kakegurui season 1 is about an unordinary school that teaches students in the day and then turns into a gambling den at night. Some students in Japan are taught how to play with money and people through gambling. They learn manipulation, acting, bluffing, tricks, and the art of dealing with money. These skills will help powers that be later in life when they have battles.
Yumeko Jabami transfer to Hyakkao Private Academy to learn more about how to gamble. She became famous for her excellent skills when she played cards. In the Kakegurui season 2, Kirari Momobami joined the student council. She wanted to change it. She threw out new competition and whoever won would rule the school and her family. In the new president hunt, the person who won would be in charge. There were many fights, and some people lost some chips and others won. The season ended after a fascinating fight.
Kakegurui Season 3: Spoilers
We didn’t find many spoilers about the third season of Rei. But that doesn’t mean there are no episodes that will be about Rei or her friends.
Kakegurui Season 3: Release Date?
The second season of the show aired two years after the first one. It had twelve episodes like the first one. Studio MAPPA hasn’t said anything about the third season yet. That means that the production crew is still working on it. But we know that as soon as they solve their problems, they will release another series of amazing gambling stories.
Many fans are guessing that the show will come back in 2021. But the pandemic might change this.
Kakegurui Season 3: cancelled?
The announcement has not been cancelled. There might have been a delay because of the following reasons:
Kakegurui Season 3: Source Material
The story of the anime ends in chapter 55 in the manga. Kawamoto is writing many stories now, including Kakegurui and its spinoffs. So, his hands are busy with 7 stories, and he cannot rush this story quickly. Besides, Nomura illustrates the anime, which is very detailed. This takes a long time to make. Moreover, Gangan periodical comes out once a month, so the manga gets one chapter per month.
They will not have enough material for 12 episodes. This is because they need to show Ririka and Rin’s duel from last season as well. They can only show this now if they produce the new season now.
Kakegurui Season 3: Content In The Anime
The manga and the anime are different in many ways. In season 1, they mostly have the same story, but in the final episode, it is different. Season 2 includes a new character that does not exist in the manga. The games in the anime change order. Tower of Doors is earlier in the manga but later in the anime. And Hollywood Actress and Greater Good switch places too. The end of the anime is different from the manga’s end, too.”
So, when they have enough people, they can add the people who are not acting. Then they start filming.
