Just came in the mail: Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler, Vol. 1

Kakegurui - Compulsive Gambler -, Vol. 1 - Homura Kawamoto

(I'll add a cover image in a bit.- ETA: Thanks to whoever added the cover!)


I preordered this after seeing a few clips from the anime - it looks like it has several prominent female characters, all of them cute on the surface and absolutely vicious when it comes to maneuvering for the top spot in their school. The basic premise: it takes place a private school for rich kids, where students are trained to get ahead in life by reading their opponents. Someone decided that the best way to do that was lots and lots of gambling. The school's social order is upset when a new student who's particularly good at gambling arrives.


Not that I need another series to keep track of, but I hope it's good.
