The second season of Kakegurui, Kakegurui ××, came to an end on 27 March 2019. Many fans of the series are most likely wondering whether a sequel to the series will be aired or not. It is likely to happen as Kakegurui ×× is deemed to have made more revenue as it was more successful than its predecessor. The first season was predicted by the fans to be picked up MAPPA for a sequel, and it turned out to be true. The possibility of the third season of the anime looks promising as well.
Another key factor which can solidify the probability of a third season airing is the amount of source material available. Like many other anime, Kakegurui and its sequel are anime adaptations of the manga. Currently, there are at least three more volumes of the manga (which have not been included in the anime) that have been published.
The manga series is currently ongoing; and if the studio stays true to tradition by covering 4 volumes of the manga in each season, one more volume would be enough source material for the third season. Based on this, the third season of the anime being aired seems more likely.
What Have Fans Seen So Far From The Previous Episodes?
The Haiku Private Academy is established in Japan as an institution for rich kids. From the outside, this Academy seems like the place that helps children grow into well-educated students who are well mannered and disciplined. In reality, this is a gambling loge where the privileged children have an opportunity to compete with others in a game.
But when it comes to the wealthy and famous, the stakes are really high. As a result, the students find their place on a hierarchy, making them aware of their position on the social ladder. Some found themselves as slaves caused by debt, while others dominated over them.
But one day, a new transfer student named Yumeko Jabami put the whole hierarchy system in shambles. She isn’t like the rest of the pack. She has no intention of winning, she just wants to play the game for fun. She isn’t interested in the outcome, instead, she enjoys the course in which she goes. As a result, Yumeko puts the student council at risk. That’s why the student council is trying to get rid of her.
Kakegurui Season 3 Release Date
MAPPA hasn’t announced or revealed anything official on the matter of Kakegurui Season 3. But as mentioned above, the chance of us getting a third season for Kakegurui is very likely as adequate source material is almost ready. Maybe they will announce it after Volume 12 of the manga, nobody knows.
So let’s keep our fingers crossed till Winter 2020 or in the worst case Summer 2020. Though, we are looking ahead to the official announcement of Kakegurui Season 3. Once MAPPA studio announces the airing of the sequel, we will update this page. So stay tuned for updates.
