Kakegurui XX is getting a Blu-ray home video release thanks to Sentai Filmworks, featuring its own unique English dub of the anime series.
Sentai Filmworks will distribute a Blu-ray home video release of kakegurui Season 2, featuring its own unique English dub.
According to an official announcement from Sentai Filmworks, the English dub features different actors than those featured in Netflix’s previous version of the series. Along with Adam Gibbs (my hero academia), who voices Ryota Suzui, Estelle Link stars in her first anime role as Yumeko Jabami. Other voice cast members include Hilary Haag (The demon girl next door) as Erimi Mushibami, Eric Vale (This time I got reincarnated as a Slime) as Ibara Obami, Juliet Simmons (Food wars! : Shokugeki no Soma) as Inaho Yamato and Scott Gibbs (Knights of the Zodiac: Saint Seiya) voicing Kaede Manyuda.
Other members of the Sentai Filmworks dub Kakegurui XX include John Gremillion (Heike’s story), Olivia Swasey (Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon?), Kailin Coates (Made in the Abyss), Christina Kelly (Akame ga Kill!) and Marissa Lenti (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid). Blake Jackson and John Swasey will helm the script, with Brent Marshall handling the English mix and Patrick Marrero as sound engineer.
Based on Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler manga by Homura Kawamoto and Tōru Naomura, the first season of studio MAPPA’s anime adaptation ran from July to September 2017, and the second season, titled Kakegurui XX, aired between January and March 2019. The anime is directed by Yuichiro Hayashi (Attack on Titan: The Final Season) with Yasuko Kobayashi (Yu Gi Oh!) supervising the composition of the series, Manabu Akita (The God of High School) designing the characters and Haruka Matsuda (Jujutsu Kaisen) as artistic director.
kakegurui takes place at the Hyakkaou Private Academy, a prestigious school where students participate in high-stakes games of chance in order to gain power, popularity, and connections. However, when transfer student Yumeko upsets the school’s delicate balance due to her gambling addiction and keen intelligence, the rest of the student body works to bring her down.
Sentai Filmworks’ home video release and new dub aren’t the only recent developments in the kakegurui franchise. Late last year, it was confirmed that Kawamoto and Kei Saiki’s prequel manga series, Kakegurui Twin, would receive its own animated adaptation by MAPPA. It is set to premiere on Netflix in August 2022.
Pre-orders for the Kakegurui XX The Blu-rays are now available on the Sentai Filmworks website, where the first season is also available for purchase. The Blu-ray is set to be released on January 25.
