Via Comic Natalie: a new teaser trailer has been released for the second live-action feature-length adaptation of Homura Kawamoto and Tooru Naomura’s “Kakegurui” — tentatively titled “Kakegurui The Movie 2”. The movie features Johnny’s WEST member Ryusei Fujii as the main antagonist, opposite Minami Hamabe’s Yumeko Jabami.
The film will see a planned release window of May 2021; the all-new story is developed under the complete supervision of the original author Kawamoto. Here’s how English licensee Yen Press describes the original manga’s story:
Hyakkaou Private Academy. An institution for the privileged with a very peculiar curriculum. You see, when you’re the sons and daughters of the wealthiest of the wealthy, it’s not athletic prowess or book smarts that keep you ahead. It’s reading your opponent, the art of the deal. What better way to hone those skills than with a rigorous curriculum of gambling? At Hyakkaou Private Academy, the winners live like kings, and the losers are put through the wringer. But when Yumeko Jabami enrolls, she’s gonna teach these kids what a high roller really looks like!
