Hyakkaou Private Academy. An institution for the privileged with a very peculiar curriculum. You see, when you're the sons and daughters of the wealthiest of the wealthy, it's not athletic prowess or book smarts that keep you ahead. It's reading your opponent, the art of the deal. What better way to hone those skills than with a rigorous curriculum of gambling? At Hyakkaou Private Academy, the winners live like kings, and the losers are put through the wringer, but when Yumeko Jabami enrolls, she's gonna teach these kids what a high roller really looks like.

Good depiction of the Japanese madness
15 February 2018 | by runep-09838See all my reviews

Wow. Just, wow. I've watched my healthy amount of anime over the years, and there are some good ones out there.. Unfortunately, this is not one of them. The first thing that struck my mind was the awful dialogue. I started out watching it with English audio, but I thought that maybe those responsible for the translation had done a bad job with it, but no, it's bad in Japanese also.

The plot is so simplistic, and it's pretty obvious they try to captivate the viewers with the classic POWER-SHOTS of faces etc. which many other anime-series pull off, but not this one. Not by a long-shot. The show comes of as pretentious and lame, with not much story to back it up. If this is the first anime-series you watch, don't let this scare you away from anime as a whole, because there are lot's of good ones out there.
