Anime Limited To Release Netflix Original ‘Kakegurui’ on Blu-ray & DVD Next Year

Anime Limited have announced that they have acquired the home video rights to the Netflix Original anime series Kakegurui, a series which recently became available to stream on the subscription-based video-on-demand service Netflix.

The complete series, which is presented in English and Japanese with English subtitles, is available to stream right now; but Anime Limited plan to release a complete series collection during 2019 onto Blu-Ray and DVD, with the possibility of a ‘Collectors Edition’ variation also on the cards. For those interested a synopsis of the show can be found below:

Synopsis: Hyakkaou Private Academy is no ordinary school. Forget academic studies, this is a school where the key to success is proficiency and nerves of steel in the no-holds-barred gambling around which the entire societal structure of the academy resides. Win big and the world is your oyster; fall into debt and be doomed to a school life of subservience and abuse from those more fortunate than you.

Into this ruthless world steps Yumeko Jabami – a wide-eyed, innocent transfer student who seems like easy pickings for her classmates. However, there’s more than meets the eye to this newcomer: little do they know that Yumeko is a young woman whose passion for gambling and risk-taking knows no bounds, and whose desire to experience the thrills of putting everything on the line will pose a direct threat to the student council that sits atop the academy’s power structure.

Anime Limited will announce new details in the future, but as they don’t plan to release the ‘Blu-Ray’ or ‘DVD’ edition until next year it may be awhile before we hear anything. In the meantime Kakegurui is available to Stream on Netflix for subscribers and you can check out a trailer for the series.
