That would make sense if Midari was trying to win, but she was actually trying to lose, so I guess I'm totally missing what the point was of Midari's trick.


She made the trick obvious so Yumeko would figure it out and win so she would lose but after figuring it out it pissed Yumeko off and so she made it a draw so Midari couldn't get her "kicks".

How is this story telling or planning or anything this episode? First deal was random, second deal...OK, maybe, maybe Yumeko could read his mind, and she figured out the hand thing from the first round.

But the last round. He wasnt thinking, it was a random lay out. Neither Yumeko or Midari could set it up so they were sure they would not get any hits. It was random, just pure dumb luck. So why was the show acting like it was some big strat they the both saw and beat?

Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler EP 5 "The Woman Who Became Human"

Yumeko and Mary each alone are a terror but together oh my!

Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler EP 6 "Tempting Woman"

Yumeko has still not paid her debt. The student council conclude Yumeko wants to challenge the student council president, Kirari. Mary is invited by Kirari to join the student council with the implication she is not allowed to refuse. Midari challenges Yumeko to a game to guess which cards are played by the dealer, and the winner gets to point one of two revolvers at the loser and pull the trigger with neither of them knowing which of the guns 6 chambers contain a bullet. Yumeko agrees but insists the game only last 3 rounds, Ryota must be the dealer, and the loser must pay 1 Billion yen. Midari also insists that if the winner misses their shot on purpose, the loser can fire a shot in return. Yumeko leaves her gun unloaded whilst Midari fully loads hers with 6 bullets. Ryota tries to signal Yumeko which cards he has played but Midari ends up scoring higher and picks a revolver, unaware if it’s the fully loaded one or the empty one.

Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler EP 7 \"Refusing Women"

This is insane Midari and how she gourged out her own eye Kirari is a sicko as SC Prez And that promise !

Episode 8

Yumeko's next opponent is the YourTube sensation Yumemi. Kirari has left the building to attend to some business, while Yumeko has a new ally in Itsuki. While Yumemi appears to be everything boys could want in the idol, in truth she's totally pissed. She ripped up those fan letters and Yumeko recorded her confession and that forces her hand to gamble for the recorded conversation. The game hasn't been explained yet, but it should be pretty entertaining. Yumeko sure is rocking in that idol outfit.

Gotta love how Yumeko is about as much of a villain as any of the student council.

Really excited for this idol showdown next week.



I also find Yumeko being an idol pretty funny since her VA (Hayami Saori) actually voices an [email protected] idol, Kaede Takagaki

Ooh can't wait for idol Yumeko, I completely sympathize with Yumemi though I wanted to wash my hands after the scene with the president of her fan club too, that was so well animated I could feel the heat of his stank breath coming off the screen LOL

While the president's away, the second years will play! I found it interesting how there's only like 1 person in the Student Council who actually cares about keeping order for the president while she's gone. Idol-chan and Glasses-kun are going after Yumeko. Russian Roulette-chan is encouraging them to do so and also she's still uh... "pleasuring" herself with her gun. Monster Umaru-chan seems to have her own plans. It's like the opposite of Kill la Kill where the Elite Four was completely unified.

Now we have another former enemy on Team Yumeko. At this rate Yumeko is going to turn the whole school into her own fan club. When Yumeko baited Yumemi to go on that rant, I immediately thought it'd be great if Yumeko was secretly recording that and it turns out she was.

Episode 9

So the game is a game of Hollywood Squares, except that the a game is played to decide who takes the square in this game of tic-tac-toe rather than through a agree/disagree for a given question. Yumemi decided to back herself into a corner on purpose to make a dramatic comeback, and she has the game just for that where she has to guess a fan's birth month. But Yumeko wanted that to happen and somehow rolled Mary's number as Yumemi doesn't know her birthday. It turns out Yumeko didn't know her's either and guessed June so that she would guess September, and as luck would have it's in March. So while Yumeko wins, there's the matter of the tape as Yumemi decided to go through with making her true self public, but the fans didn't mind. Then there's the matter of that derisive fan letter that led to this match, and apparently Kaede wrote it, and a such he's Yumeko's next opponent. That sure was a great match there, and seeing those two singing at the end is great. Even though her range of songs is limited, Yumeko sure can sing.

Well that was okay, to be honest I kind of expect Yumemi's fans to not care what she thinks about them. Hardcore Idol (I guess really any fandom) fans are crazy.



Anyways I'm excited for the public match next week.

Man I love this show, that song and dance sequence was animated so we'll, it's better than anything I've seen in actual idol animes. MAPPA is doing a great job. So Yumeko was just after Kaede this whole time and this match was just a prelude to that, loved it when he tried to squirm out and she challenged him, so great.

Something felt really off/odd about this episode. Especially that monty python-esque flat papar cut-out anime to start the competition. i was expecting to see an idol performance.

At least they redemeed themselves with the duo signing at the end of the episode That was really really good and fun to see.

I still love this show, but overall this was a weaker episode imho. Can't wait for next week though.

Yuememi was just one of the weaker antagonists. I mean an idol competition just doesn't compare to all the stuff we've seen so far (plus her strategy was really dumb too, lose on purpose to make a comeback...?) but like I said I think this was just a fun little diversion that was just a setup to the real match with Kaede next week.

Fun episode. Yumeko again won only on pure luck. I mean, cool and all, but it takes away a bit from the show. If its just gonna be based on pure luck, would like to see her lose again at least.

Love that she challenged him to an offical match. I figured she wouldnt use it on the pres, just didnt know how it would go down. Everyone was expecting that from her and shes just having fun gambling. Now she has thrown all her friends and enemys for a loop. Probbaly expects the Pres to challenger her anyways. Seems they both love gambling.
