The story of Kakegurui opens in Hyakkaou Private Academy where very privileged students are allowed to study. The MC, Yumeko Jabami is a transfer student who’s secretly addicted to gambling but hides her addiction under the facade of innocence.
She’s psychotic about gambling. One by one, she completely destroys her opponents in gambling and threatens to change the twisted hierarchy of the school just because she loves messing with people. She can see-through her opponents intention and their weak cheating methods, completely crushing them in return. There’s no one who can surpass her!
