Via Comic Natalie: the release of the second live-action feature-length adaptation of Homura Kawamoto and Tooru Naomura’s “Kakegurui” — titled “Kakegurui The Movie 2: Zettaizetsumei RUSSIAN ROULETTE“, has been postponed from its planned date of 20th April due to the issuance of a State of Emergency in four prefectures in Japan.
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 enrols, she’s gonna teach these kids what a high roller really looks like!
The movie features Johnny’s WEST member Ryusei Fujii as the main antagonist, opposite Minami Hamabe’s Yumeko Jabami. An all-new story just for the film was developed under the complete supervision of the original author Kawamoto.
