Netflix’s ‘Kakegurui Twin’ Teases Mary’s Crazy Gambling Skills Prior Debut
Weird schools have always been an anime norm, but Kakegurui took it to another level with its gambling-addicted students.
Mary Saotome was the school’s reigning queen before Yumeko Jabami took Hyakkou Private Academy by storm. Kakegurui Twin, the upcoming spinoff from the franchise will finally unveil the rags-to-riches story of Mary.
The Kakegurui Twin anime will premiere on August 4, 2022. Netflix will stream the anime and it will receive a total of eight episodes.
Once again, MAPPA has done some fantastic work, as proved by the anime’s trailer. “Queen’s Bluff,” the ending theme song of the series by i☆Ris is also previewed in it.
The trailer is narrated from the POV of Tsuzuru, Mary’s childhood friend. When Mary entered the academy, Tsuzuru had already become a housepet. She considers Mary her ‘prince’ as she hopes Mary will rescue her
You can check out Mary’s first match in the trailer, which was against Kokoro. The result of this game will predict whether she can fit in the school or not. Of course, this is when she will realize her love for risks.
If you have watched season 1 of Kakegurui, you already know that Mary is a pro at gambling. Yet, some matches will prove how you can’t trust anyone in the academy, no matter how innocent they seem.

It’s hard to be bored by a series like Kakegurui that can freak out fans with every episode. I have no doubt that Kakegurui Twin will also have the same capacity. I mean, MAPPA is in charge, so what can go wrong? (Except for overworked animators)
So get ready for killer suspense and dizzying adrenaline rushes as Mary Saotome is all set to claim her throne.
Kakegurui is an anime based on a manga of the same name written by Homura Kawamoto and illustrated by Toru Naomura. It is directed by Yuichiro Hayashi and is animated by MAPPA.
Hyakkaou Private Academy, a regular school for ultra-rich kids by day and a grotesque gambling den by night, has an inbuilt social hierarchy.
Based on how one performs in gambling and manipulating their peers, students are ranked best to worst, the top rankers being the most powerful.
Yumeko Jabami, a transfer student who gambles just for the thrill of it, becomes the new challenger and the talk of the Hyakkaou’s elite student council.
Her insane love for gambling presents her with new challenges as she climbs her way to the top.
