Can I have a Yumeko neko?


Another great episode and shows just how far Yumeko will go. It should be fun seeing her rise back from this.

I've gotta be honest, this show is disappointing me so far. It's hard to articulate exactly why but it's not living up to my expectations. It's definitely not bad but it's just not "it."

The psychotic expressions kindof run it for me, TBH... and it's not nearly as clever as it seems to think it is.

Liar Game had this licked, one ago.

Yeah, I think that's a large part of why I'm not really digging it. It's gone full on with the crazy, and that's fine for me personally, but it's just not as smart as it could be or thinks it is. The premise had me expecting more in that regard.

I truly enjoy it and love the psychotic looks. Pretty awesome imo. Love how Yumeko is always on the verge of orgasm when she gambles and the kill em with kindness is over 9000 in this anime. This last episode was great seeing the culture clubs president get her ass handed to her (even tho she won) was pretty bad ass. The table turning is insane. Love it!!!

Thus was mentioned during Saekano, but being critical of something, especially something you otherwise like, doesn't preclude you from enjoying it. Kakegurui isn't bad by any means, I just find it's not living up to the promise of it's concept so far.

Then I feel sorry they're not fully enjoying it the way someone who finds no reason to criticize it is able to.

This OP

Good stuff overall and thats mostly (imo) because the thriller aspect mixed with really good VA's and the amount of energy we see in said game. With that being said, I really don't think the dude needs to be here. I get his purpose... but I believe the viewer can figure the games out without him. He will obviously be a mixed bag of opinions and well... imo, he just needs to go . The VA for Yumeko (outstanding work btw), the animation, and the ost carry the show without him. Hell, the direction of the show Mappa brings farther gives the viewer whats kind of going on. My favorite selling point, the color usage... man........ Mappa nailed the color usage to a incredible degree to set the tone. Is the story great for the show? Imo, no... the story is overall okish. The other things are what carries it to a great degree for me. Thus, I will keep watching

Lastly, why Netflix? If you want to get in this market, let us get the show asap. Not, months later after its finished.

Well, the story's just begun. The purpose of the first few chapters was to set the stage for the actual plot/goal of this story .

Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler EP 1 "A Woman Named Yumeko Jabami"

This reminds me of Prision School / Food Wars ( like the Elite 10) Combo where gambling places you in the Hiearchy . Sometimes you are a pet how degrading

Transfer Yumeko challenges one of the Top players Satome in a rigged modified Rock Paper Scissors card game byt Yumenko loses at first but then bets everything after setting Satome up and vreaks her finaces standing in the school

Great anime

Great OP like a jazz swing song Nice~dancing too!

Deal With The Devil / Tia

ED

"LAYon-theLINE" by D-Selections Very good

A great anime depicting animals
Cats being housepet women
Mice being housepet men
Yumeko means Snake

Episode 4

Now that Yumeko has racked up a huge debt that she's one of the dogs that will do what their life schedule tells them to do, and for Mary, it's not pretty as she has to marry a lolicon senator. While that's happening, Kiwatari asks Yumeko to strip, while Midari comes in to put a stop to this and having a bet herself if the revolver is loaded or not. At least there's a way out of this massive debt in the form of a debt exchange meeting where their debts can be pushed onto other students, and Yumeko and Mary happen to be in the same group, along with Kiwatari to play Indian poker.

That was well-played by Yumeko, silently working together with Mary to go all-in when she has a great hand, while convincing Kiwatari they were not when Mary went all-in knowing she had a crappy hand. Pretty intense game so far, and it will be interesting to see how this turns out seeing that only one of them can get their debt erased.

"Pochi" refers to dogs, not mice.
