After confirming that Season 2 is indeed happening for the anime adaptation, the live-action Kakegurui drama is making the news this time, as it finally reveals its very first teaser video. The new video introduces us to the drama’s cast, led by actress Minami Hamabe, who will be playing the compulsive gambler herself, Yumeko Jabami.

Actress Minami Hamabe has previously played Menma in the live-action AnoHana TV drama, as well as Saki in the live-action Saki movie and TV drama series. Because she has previously played sweet and innocent characters, she acknowledges that her new role as Yumeko will be a whole different animal from her previous roles. She did admit that she’s excited to give the role her all.

MAPPA previously animated the manga for a Netflix TV anime last season. The TV anime adaptation will be released globally in English this 2018. Set in the prestigious Hyakkaou Private Academy where gambling is everything, the school’s brutal gambling and debt system suddenly gets rocked with the arrival of a new student named Yumeko Jabami.
