The official website for the live-action adaptation project based on Homura Kawamoto (story) and Toru Naomura (art)’s gambling themed manga Kakegurui announced today that a live-action web drama adaptation of its spin-off series Kakegurui Twin will start streaming for eight episodes exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on March 26, 2021. Two episodes will be sequentially posted every Friday.
The manga has been serialized in Square Enix’s Monthly GanGan Joker since its October 2015 issue and has released ten tankobon volumes in Japan so far. It tells a prequel story set one year before the manga’s main story begins when the protagonist Yumeko Jabami transfers to Hyakkaou Private Academy, and centers on Mary Saotome, who won first place in a character popularity poll by readers.
