This was a baffling decision by the production staff to start with a time jump, then time jump back halfway through the episode.

If you don't read the manga, you'll probably find yourself rather confused about what's going on. Especially, considering the anime original ending of the first season, and the fact that they didn't just follow the manga and do Tower Arc next here in the first episode. Even though it's in key art for the season.

It was a nice episode and all, and the new OP/ED are pretty good. I just feel like they messed around with the narrative for no reason and no gain.

I guess I'll just have to wait for Netflix to start streaming S2 before I can start watching this again. I just finished S1 on there & I wanna know what happens to this crazy bunch of gamblers...

Well we finally get the exposition aas to what is going on, I didn't mind, it made the first episode more exciting. Really thought Midari would lose a finger, so as always explanations are never really clear for this show. Did it not go off because Midari cut two strings at once or what? Don't see how that would keep it from falling. And $30 million, must be nice.

Episode 2

So the student council is up for grabs with the Momobami clan hoping to claim it, and Yumeko is their biggest threat. So back to the match with Erimi, Midari cuts the last two, and Yumeko did quite a nice job in psyching Erimi out making her believe that the guillotine is still not rigged made to intimidate as there was never any danger of anybody losing their fingers. So Erimi's finger is out, and Midari is DQ'd for cutting two strings leaving Yumeko as the winner. Once again Yumeko has mastered the mind game seeing that she has psyched out opponents when anybody else would have collapsed under pressure in her situation going to show just how observant she is.

Kakegurui ×× EP # 2 "The Women of Momobami Clan"

Yup win an election by gambling

Runa has a biigger role this season ( she's one of my favs as she does judge fairly )

Yumeko now has 3 billion yen thanks to Manyuda loss

Mary warns Yumeko about the election as she is a distant relative and is part of the reason Kirari resigned

So this sets up ep 1 and Yamato is the observer

Erimi is the one who is afraid as Yumeko / Midari are just having so much fun !

There's 2 strings left but Midari cuts them both but no one loses a finger as Yamato tried to balance the guilotone but one of the desk pads were broken jamming it ( I think )

But Yumenko wins as Erimi took her finger out and so is Midari cut 2 strings denying Yumenko the terror of the last string and totally disowns Midari

Yumenko does respect Erimi

The Momobami clam is deceitful .

Ririka Momobami was looking for / found Mary who has stayed low

Episode 3

Here comes Miri and Miyo, and those two play dirty by poisoning their opponent and force them to surrender in order to get cured. They used that bush league tactic to beat Yuriko, and they took out Yumeko in the same way, but Mary is stepping in to win the antidote. Ririka finally gets unmasked as Mary was forced to bet with her, but of course she would have none of it. I knew that something was amiss when Miyo raised a lot despite having a crappy hand, and now Yumeko's life lays hanging in the balance. The stakes just keep on getting bigger, but now it's as big as they possibly could be knowing that someone could die depending on the outcome.

Poison now? Since Yumeko rarely gets caught off guard she had to know ahead of time about the poison so I can't wait to see how she outsmarts them this time. Also what's with the "Bami" part of their names making them related? Do the Japanese change their family names but keep part of the original? Never heard of that.

Kakegurui ×× EP # 3 "Do Not Touch This Women"

OMG this is getting so good talking about extreme gambling like your life.

This is a good one Runa oversees a match betwween Miri Youbami and Miyo Inbami and Yumeko / Suzuki

Runa suspects tampering in the election after Yuriko Nishinotouin (passes out ) lost to Miri Youbami and Miyo

Runa decicdes a card game Nym Type Zero

Ririka Momobami the Ririka Momobami VP has a bet with Mary to support one or another in the election ) in a coin bet

Mary rips off her mask and sees is the twin of President Kirari and refuses

At the same time Suzuki calls for her to replace Yumenko who has fallen ill Mary grabs Ririka's hand and the coin is in it Mary wins after being threatened

Not ill but poison as Runa knew that from Yuriko falling ill and Miri Youbami and Miyo Inbami familes are in the medicine business but cant do anything since it didnt happened during the game but when Miyo embraced Yumenko at their introduction

Miyo wanted Ririka to play but now Mary has the votes he antidote is worth a 100 votes An added twist there are a pad of needles that have poision on them and must prick a finger if they fold

The second game is crazy as Yumenko told Suzuki do as Mary says which is show his hand to her Runa Objects but says if its an accident its legit so he shows his hand to everybody .

Episode 4

No wonder why Mary knew that she would win simply by looking at Ryota's cards as she noticed the way Ruka was shuffling the cards, something that only the super-observant would pay attention to. As such, it didn't matter what cards those two sisters had as Mary had it all figured out. So Miri loses both times as Ruka knew that they wouldn't stand a chance playing things straight up. While Mary saved Yumeko this time around, the next time they will gamble as opponents seeing that Yumeko's gambling addiction would drive the academy to the ground should she be president, which should lead to some interesting drama.

Hmmm Saotome is almost as cool as Yumeko, so if she wants to be pres I guess that means we'll get an epic battle with her , Yumeko and the current pres once they dispatch all these wannabe small fry. Also anyone else get the feeling the helpful glasses wearing whatever-bami is a chick?

Episode 5

Next opponent is a Hollywood actress Natari as once again Yumeko is teaming up with another student in her next bet. First it was Midari, then Ryota (and ultimately replaced by Mary), and now it's Yumemi who is teaming up as Yumeko is dragged into this bet. It's a three-round showdown and whoever wins the most votes in two out of three rounds wins this bet. First round is singing and while it's what Yumemi does best, it's nothing compared to Natari's opera-style voice as she totally underestimated her. That was a great version of Amazing Grace that Natari just sung there and with a powerful voice like that, not even the most faithful of her fans could go against it. Yumemi has her work cut out if she wants to win. I have to think that once Natari is old enough, she would be hitting it up in Vegas since she is making it big in Hollywood after all.

The singing and dancing shoehorned into the first season was kind of the oddest part of the series but still turned out fun hopefully the same happens this time. "Amazing Grace" was the last thing I thought I'd hear sung on this show though Surprised there are no real life Japanese actresses who have been able to make it in Hollywood.
