Kakegurui Season 3 Renewal Status
Official Status: Pending (Updated on: December 31st, 2022)
When fans were expecting a sequel, the platform surprised everyone with a prequel. Kakegurui Twin was a 6 episode prequel released in August 2022. Currently, there are no updates on the renewal of a sequel from Netflix and Studio MAPPA. Netflix holds the international distribution license for the show except in Japan, although Netflix has no authority to renew or cancel anime series. Only the Studio MAPPA and the Japanese network have the right to decide.
We are expecting to hear some news on either a sequel to Kakegurui or Kakegurui Twin.
What is the fan’s take on Kakegurui Season 3?
The fans are eagerly waiting for the third season. It would not be wrong to say that there will be many disappointed subscribers to Netflix if there is no follow-up to Season 2. Fans have taken to Twitter to voice their excitement for Season 3.
Kakegurui Season 3 Plot
The last episode of Kakegurui Season 2 left viewers with a fierce battle between Yumeko and Sayaka in the Tower of Doors. The game is easily won by Yumeko and eventually earns the respect of Momobami Kirari, the student council president. Season 3 will pick up the unfinished story and continue with the student council president election arc. Momobami would use her presidency as bait to end Yumeko’s streak of consecutive victories. For the next game, it’s hard to say anything because studio MAPPA took a different take from the source material manga. The studio tried to follow a completely original approach with concepts and stories adapted from the manga. With all this, Studio MAPPA did a great job.
