The key factor which is pointing out the decision on renewal is that there is enough source material for another television adaptation. As of today, at least three more volumes of the original manga series have been issued. The latter one will be released on March 22, 2019, and the manga is currently ongoing. Even if we imagine that the previous two seasons covered volumes 1 to 8, each season requires four volumes. We now have three new chapters, and need thereby only one new volume for another full television season of Kakegurui. Based on the data provided above, we tend to believe that Kakegurui Season 3 would take place.
Season 1 of Kakegurui kicked off this July. It is a television adaptation of the ongoing manga series by Homura Kawamoto. MAPPA Co., Ltd. serves as a developer of the anime series. This studio is famous thanks to their hit series Yuri on Ice that debuted in 2016. The original manga began serialization yet in 2014. The series apparently conceived as a long-running project. The 2nd season aired between January and March of 2019.
SummaryJust imagine, what the children of wealthy people have to study? They have money and influence since their birth. Therefore, the only problem they have is how to dispose of their fortunes. The Haiku Private Academy is the institution for rich kids established in Japan. At first sight, this Academy is the place made to grow up well-educated students who learn many extended disciplines.
However, in fact, this is a gambling lodge the privileged students have a chance to compete with each other in a game. But the stakes are incredibly high when it touches wealthy and famous. As a result, the game allows the students to build a hierarchy, according to their newly obtained social ladder. Of course, those of them who found themselves in debt becoming slaves, while the rest dominate them. In point of fact, the primary goal is the master-slave relationship that set the order at the Academy.
But one day, Yumeko Jabami, a new transfer student destroys the social order. She isn't going to win. Yumeko's primary aim is a pleasure that she obtains from the game. She is a maniac, after all, who thrills of the gamble. She doesn't target the result, but is interested in the process, in turn. As a result, Yumeko is a threat to the student council. That's why they try to get rid of her.
Kakegurui Season 3 Release Date
MAPPA has yet to announce anything official on the subject of Kakegurui Season 3 release date. However, taking into account that the source for another television season is almost ready, as well as the hiatus between two previous adaptations, we assume that Kakegurui Season 3 might be released in January 2020. In the worst case scenario, we should wait until July 2020. In any case, we are looking forward to the official confirmation of Kakegurui Season 3. Once the MAPPA studio announces the renewal, we will update this page. Stay tuned for updates.
