the first season of Kakegurui was a spectacle unto itself with characters more manga-esque than the manga (and anime) itself. (catch it on Netflix if you haven't already).

so far, the second season has comprised of five episodes that pick up with the "Gambling Idol" and the "Kaede Showdown" story arcs, both of which were even more exciting and over-the-top than the arcs in Season 1. all i can say is....Netflix best pick the second season up so that the rest of the English-speaking world can enjoy it as much as i have.

I recommend if you liked the anime's first season and have seen live-action season 1. It is the last two arcs of animes first season retold in a different visual medium.

Story
Starting off with the fact that I have watched the anime but not read the manga. This live-action adaptation continues to be the most accurate storyline I have seen when comparing it to its anime counterpart. Very little minor details are changed but the rest is exactly the same. If you liked the anime storyline then you will like this storyline.
The biggest difference between this and the anime is that they decided to add a new storyline that only gets teased in this season and will probably get picked up later on.

Characters/Acting/Cast
The overrating continues to shine and be great. It is clear that the directed wanted the overacting that all the actors give out in this performance. They are very good at their job and overact most scenes in great ways.

Hamabe Minami as Jabami Yumiko was great as in the first season. She really knows how to play an innocent girl that goes crazy. She seems to be more comfortable with the characters around her and is now being more of the gambling addict she is. Matsuda Ruka as Sumeragi Itsuki does a good job in acting and she is more prominent in this season than in the last. Morikawa Aoi as Saotome Mary takes a backseat to give the character of Sumeragi more time to shine

Takasugi Mahiro as Suzui Ryota continues to be the biggest deviation from his anime counterpart. While the anime had his character more grounded and as a point of relatedness to see ourselves in the situation, this version of Suzuki was just as wacky as the rest of the characters. It serves some great comedic scenes at times but I would have like a more grounded version.

Music
The OP was better in the first season but the ending songs were still great.
