Kakegurui’s Yumeko Jabami: Pure as the Snow

Our look at the series Kakegurui would not be complete if we didn’t discuss the main character. One who makes the shows what it is, and provides a refreshing take on something well worn within the anime world. This is something that I’ve been wanting to discuss for a while now, and I’m looking forward to share my thoughts. After the cut, let’s take a look at the main heroine of Kakegurui: Yumeko Jabami.

Kakegurui XX: Ante Up People

A few months back, I sat down, threw my chips on the table and got around to catching the ‘anime original’ (pfft) series Kakegurui on Netflix. I held off on watching the second series though, but a week or so back I decided to scratch it off my list. So let’s sit down, pull out a pack of cards and get into it. After the cut, let’s dive into the second season: Kakegurui XX

Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler: A card laid is a card played.

Every now and then I’ll pick up a series out of nowhere, which is different than how I usually watch things. Most of the time I plan things out like with my seasonal watches, or revisit a series I heard was good, or been meaning to get to watching. It is actually very rare for me to just randomly start watching an unknown anime. A little weird I know, but it’s just how I do things.

Yet when I do end up rolling the dice and taking a gamble (heh) on the unknown, I normally come up quite strong. Today’s series is another one of those. So join me after the cut as we take a dive into the anime series Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler.

Tune of the Week(ish): Kakegurui’s Deal with the Devil

Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler is absolutely something we are talking about. Tomorrow actually, and for good reason. It’s both a high octane, card game anime that is smooth as silk, and sexy as lace, but also something that pretty much only has one card (heh) to play. Either way, the opening theme is absolutely fucking amazing. The Tune of the Week is the opening theme to the first season: Deal with the Devil by Tia!
