Based on a manga series written by Homura Kawamoto and illustrated by Kei Saiki, Kakegurui Twin is a gambling anime series. Kawamoto and Saiki’s manga serves as a spin-off and prequel to Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler, which Kawamoto created with artist Tooru Naomura. Kakegurui Twin revolves around Mary Saotome, one of the main characters of the original manga series, and her early days at Hyakkaou Private Academy. Mary’s amazing gaming skills draw the attention of several student council members. Interestingly, the Mary Saotome we meet in Kakegurui Twin is kind, generous, and even moral-minded. She is very different from the sadistic and ruthless girl we meet at the beginning of Kakegurui. That means something must have happened to cause such a drastic change in Mary’s personality.
Following the release of the first season, Kakegurui Twin received mostly positive reviews, with critics praising the animation, storyline, and characters. If you’re wondering if there will be a second season of ‘Kakegurui Twin’, we have the answer for you.
