Tsutomu Hanabusa (Sadako 3D)-directed feature film edition hits Japanese theaters
The official Twitetr for the live-action adaptation project based on Homura Kawamoto (story) and Toru
Naomura (art)'s gambling themed manga Kakegurui has revealed that 25-year-old professional cosplayer
Enako makes her actress debut in its forthcoming feature film. She already made her voice actress debut
in the 2017 web anime Henkei Shoujo/Transforming Girls as one of its protagonist girls, Rin, but this is
her first appearance in a live-action film.
Enako portrays a female student who fights fiercely against Jueri Arukibi played by Haruka Fukuhara in
a gambling battle. She says," My co-stars had a friendly atmosphere before shooting, but once the camera
strated rolling, I was shocked by their changes as if they were possessed by their characters. I believe I
showed the faces you had never seen before, so I would be glad if you could check my face impressions!"
The feature film edition Kakegurui is scheduled to be released in Japan on May 3, 2019, while the TV
drama's second season is slated for March 31, 2019.
