Kakegurui Season 3 barely has any new updates despite this it has been trending lately. Why is that so? Well the fans previously waited for the third season to release in 2021 but due to the pandemic everything got disrupted. However now as everything is getting back to normal what does that mean about the future of Kakegurui? Are we finally getting a third season? Well to find out, continue reading the article!
Kakegurui Season 3 Release Date
Neither Mappa nor Netflix have yet renewed Kakegurui Season 3 which leaves us with very low hopes. But as well know Netflix is notorious for canceling shows. The renewal depends on a number of factors. The popularity of the show and good ratings matter but the budget also matters. We have seen in the past that despite the shows being famous they had to be canceled because of how difficult it was to maintain them.
Moreover Netflix has not revealed the viewership numbers yet. So, we have been kept in the dark about the ratings as well! There is barely anything left for us through which we can predict the release date but given that Mappa announces the third season of Kakegurui in the near future it will most likely release in 2023. Of course it will come to Netflix once it has aired in Japan. Other than Netflix don’t expect the show to premiere on any other streaming sites. Why? Because Netflix is the only streaming site which has acquired anime’s rights outside of Japan.
In case you still haven’t streamed the first two seasons make sure to watch them on Netflix! The first season aired in 2017 and the second season came 2 years after it. So, if a gap of two years was a trend then the third season is for sure not going to be released ever. Moreover the anime is based on the manga series. The first two seasons did cover the core plot but there is still plenty of content which can easily get developed into a whole new installment only if the creators and the studio is willing to work on it.
Kakegurui Season 3 Cast
The official cast lineup for Kakegurui Season 3 is not out yet. However if the third season returns then of course it will have the same cast members. So, expect the following to be an integral part of the third season:
- Yumeko Jabami (Saori Hayami)
- Mary Saotome (Minami Tanaka)
- Ryota Suzuki (Tatsuya Tokutake)
- Midari Ikishima (Mariya Ise)
- Kirari Momobami (Miyuki Sawashiro)
And depending on the storyline more characters can also get introduced into the story. Unfortunately until now Mappa has not revealed the details regarding the new additions. But in case you are interested to find out you can check out the manga! But let it be known that it is not fully confirmed whether the third season will follow the events of the manga closely because as it was observed in the second season that the anime deviated from the main plot and it was majorly based on its own story.
The above mentioned characters have been the main ones since the first episode. Hence it makes sense for them to return. Yumeko Jabami is the Hyakkoku Private Academy transfer student around whom the whole anime revolves. Other than her Kirari is one of the main antagonists and Ririka is her twin! Their family is somehow related to Yumeko, so these three characters are always interconnected.
There is no confirmed plot synopsis for Kakegurui Season 3 yet which means that all that we can do for now is rely on fan theories. The story can go in various directions. But the two ideas which seem most appropriate are:
- Either the third season will focus on the gruesome war with the Monobami twins
- Or maybe it will continue from where the second season’s finale ended, which was the election arc!
And who knows maybe both of these plots will end up being in the third season. Rei Tsunami was never a part of the original manga series. He was deliberately added into the story. Which was an odd decision especially given the finale of the second season it left fans agitated. The 2nd part of Kakegurui came way back in 2019 so we know that the fans have waited enough!
There is no official trailer for Kakegurui Season 3 yet. We don’t have any sort of media from the third season. But in case you are interested do not forget to check out the fan made trailer available on YouTube! They’ll definitely be enough to quench your thirst for now.
Even though the chances of Mappa renewing the series are low, don’t lose hope. Because it happens at times that the anime get suddenly renewed despite their activity being dormant for a long time. So, for more updates in the future stay tuned!
