Kakegurui Season 3 has been long in the waiting list. The series is an adaptation of Japanese manga by Homura Kawamoto. The first season was aired in Japan in July 2017 and is available to watch on Netflix as well. The second season release completed in March last year. And ever since then, fans have been waiting for Kakegurui Season 3.
When Will The Kakegurui Season 3 Be Released?
MAPPA is handling the production of the series with Netflix being an International OTT platform. However, neither of them have announced a renewal status for Kakegurui Season 3. Besides, Netflix only has the premiering rights but doesn’t really have a say in the renewal of the series. The decision ultimately falls on MAPPA and Japanese Networks. But the two seasons so far have received a great response from the audience, so it’d be a bad business decision not to have the third round.
It must also be noted that the entire world was under lockdown because of the Coronavirus. So there are chances that the production for Kakegurui Season 3 would have been shut as well and will be slower than usual. Initially, the prediction was that the third season would be released by mid-2020. But now it seems that we won’t have it until mid-2021.
Who All Are Coming Back For Kakegurui Season 3?
Since Kakegurui is an animated series, the cast would include voice artists. For now, we don’t have any official news regarding who will be back for Kakegurui Season 3. But here are some of our best guesses:
- Yumeka Jabami (Minami Hamabe)
- Mary Saotome (Aoi Morikawa)
- Itsuki Sumeragi (Ruka Matsuda)
- Jun Kiwatari (Yuma Yamoto) and many more.
What Does Kakegurui Season 3 Have In Store For Us?
The story revolves around Hyakkoy Private Academy. It is an elite school and houses some of the wealthiest children of Japan. However, the hierarchy of students in the School is not dependent on academic performances or how they do at School. It depends on how good they are in gambling than other students. The students in the School are ranked as per the money or financial aid provided by their parents to the School. Parents who offer more money, get their students in popular committees and are able to earn prestige and connections.
At the same time, the ones who don’t end up fancying the rich ones and in the debt trap. The larger the debt is, the longer part of their lives will they end up paying back the School.
While Kakegurui Season 3 plot is pretty much under wraps, we do have some insights on what could possibly the plot be. Most likely, the upcoming season will follow Rei Batsubami who recalls the time when she was treated like a servant by the Monobami clan. And she got a bit of hope when she tasted kindness from a lady visitor.
