School for gamblers? You heard that right. That's what this manga is about. Yumeko, the Kakegurui, is just amazing. There's no such thing as luck when she's gambling. She's all about wits and intelligence; she has me rooting for her 'till the end!

Sep 06, Shannon rated it liked it Shelves: manga , shounen , , school-life. Well that escalated quickly. Sep 13, The Artisan Geek rated it really liked it Shelves: bookcase. A bit more 'revealing' than the anime, but not like that's such a surprise.

There's some mystery here as to the inside workings of the council and more interestingly who the heck Yumeko really is.

I love the thrill of the gambling as well as how savage Yumeko is when you goes full on crazy mode, lmao! I started watching season two of the anime a couple of months ago, but lost interest because it started being rather repetitive in nature i. Yumeko gambles with someone, finds out their trick, exposes them, rinse and repeat. I think I might just continue only with the manga and see if there is more of a development in terms of the story.

This is one of those manga series set at a school where the student council behaves like a fascist dictatorship and the teachers pay no attention. In this case the council has turned the entire school into a gambling den where the students all scions of rich and important families bet small fortunes with each other. Those students who sink too far into debt become slaves that anyone at school can boss around. Our protagonist is Yumeko Jabami, a new transfer student with mysterious goals and a This is one of those manga series set at a school where the student council behaves like a fascist dictatorship and the teachers pay no attention.

Our protagonist is Yumeko Jabami, a new transfer student with mysterious goals and a love of gambling. She quickly enrolls one of the underdog slaves, a boy named Suzui, as her sidekick and together they set out to take down the school's top players. If this sounds a bit like Kaiji, that's probably because this is a blatant rip-off. The first game Jabami plays is even a variant on restricted rock-paper-scissors. The one major difference besides having a largely female cast is that Kaiji was always on the ropes until he could find a way to squeak out a win, whereas Jabami has an aloof self-assurance that makes her eventual victory a foregone conclusion.

When Kaiji lost the first round of a game, it always seemed possible that he'd keep on losing, whereas with Jabami you can tell she's just using the loss to figure out her opponent's strategy. Part of that has to do with perspective. In Kaiji we were always in the main character's head, following his panicked thoughts as he analyzed whatever tight predicament he found himself in, but here the POV character is Suzui, who serves as a Watson, making Jabami a distant and inscrutable Holmes figure.

Instead of knowing what her strategy is from the get-go and being kept in suspense over whether it'll work, we only find out her plan after it's already succeeded.

But if you're the sort of person who loves these kind of game-theory-from-hell stories, a little unoriginality doesn't matter. It's still a fun read with gorgeous art. Jun 29, Rebecca rated it really liked it Shelves: manga. I'm not a fan of gambling, but I do love a good revenge story, and this has some nice ones as Yumeko unmasks the cheaters one by one. Full review eventually appearing on ANN.

Jul 15, Marisa Kimrey rated it it was amazing. I adore Yumeko and everything about this anime series! Shelves: manga.

Quick thoughts: Interesting premise that's held back a bit for the sake of a more accessible formula. I wish there was more straight up game skill. The concept of evaluating intuition via gambling loses steam with so much cheating going on.

That said, The game variations are interesting, as are the various "methods" of play. Yumeko is both compelling and rather disturbing at the same time, and a strong lead. I'll likely be continuing. Reading this just reminded me more about actually watching the anime adaptation for this. Even though gambling goes over my head, reading about Hyakkaou's structure sucked me in despite its cruelty. She may appear innocent, but it's very clear she has something darker inside her and Kawamoto did an excellent job at showing it at various points.

Naomura's art is also very detailed and sophisticated minus the few panty shots , especially when things go off the Reading this just reminded me more about actually watching the anime adaptation for this. Naomura's art is also very detailed and sophisticated minus the few panty shots , especially when things go off the rails. My only problem with this volume is that it was kind of slow especially since this is adapted into almost three full episodes , plus I'm not sure where Suzui is going to fall in this story outside of being an observer.

Regardless, this was fun and I'm looking forward to seeing the anime whenever I get around to it. I did not expect to laugh as hard as I did during the Yumeko Maid Cafe bonus comic. Jul 03, Vanessa rated it it was ok Shelves: 2-graphic-novels , , 4-cover-love. The Hyakkaou Private Academy is foor the rich and the beautiful and also known for their gambling after School. There you can win or loose everything in a matter of moments.

My only gambling with this volume is that it was kind of slow especially since this is adapted into almost three full episodesplus I'm not sure where Suzui is going go here book in anime story outside of being an observer. There is only so much fun to be had in a gambling anime if done wrong, but with the way the masterful manipulation and intrigue is presented in Kakegurui, it has a way of drawing you in for the ride right from the first episode. I will pick up the next volume! Give anticipation a shot!

What's really interesting are the games that are introduced in this series. She may appear innocent, but it's very clear she has something darker inside her and Kawamoto did an excellent job at showing it at various points. Annticipation order to do so, she must play to gather 13 legendary gate cards.

All that imagination and creativity to making these games are extremely http://enjoystake.site/poker-games/poker-games-kazan-play-1.php. It's reading your opponent-the art of the deal. The games are various. Pairs of the recently deceased must play a random game which decides their fate.

It is a story about a man who signed a co-loan for his friend, and anime he must pay it back. It will bring you some extra wins! Gambling, many of these anime found their way to our flat screens. A anticipation student arrives who looks anike, but whose thrill-seeking reckless gambling style threatens to shake the school's social structure all the way to book top.

Anticipwtion we approached the second decade of the 21st century, actual gambling anime started to become quite popular — more so anticipatiln Japan. The story so far is kind of episodic, as the dangerously more info new girl encounters opponent after opponent, though the challenges are different each time and the cliffhanger ending implies that victories may not be guaranteed.

I have a detailed review of the representation and characterization of the female characters in chapter one of this manga, in this twitter thread. During this period, getting a job as a Japanese student or a graduate was nearly impossible. When faced with the loan he now needs to pay off, Http://enjoystake.site/top-games/top-games-ejection-vs-1.php must enter the dark, underground world of illegal gambling.
