Storyline

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.

It's unique, flawed, and worth a watch.
14 January 2020 | by badcgisharkSee all my reviews

This is one hell of a unique show and the first season is done incredibly well. Having a main protagonist who is a chaotic neutral (not bad, not good, and unpredictable) is fun. The first season was simple yet complex enough to really pull me in. It has great character development and many "OH DAMN!" moments that make it stand out. I'd easily give the first season a 9/10.

The second season was decent, but not nearly as polished. Way too many new characters, and the bets were either convoluted or meaningless. Possibly worth a watch, but the ending was completely lacking.

Season 1 - 9/10 Season 2 - 5/10

Series as a whole - 7/10

Watch the first season and if you really love it, go into the second season with lowered expectations.
