The Best Gambling Anime
Today we’ll talk about the best gambling anime series. Some have elements of gambling (like poker anime) while others have clear discussions about it. From Yu-Gi-Oh! to Naruto, you’ll almost certainly have watched at least one episode of anime before – even if you didn’t realize you were doing so. But did you know that gambling anime exists as well? Yes, you heard that right. Let’s get started. Joker Game Joker Game is an anime series that originally began as a novel series, and has also become a film. The series takes place during the 20th century, and it’s just before World War II is about to impact the world. While Joker Game does not explicitly talk about gambling throughout the series, you will find various shows where people are playing poker and whatnot. So, you could theoretically class part of this series as gambling anime. The original series of Joker Game ran from 2008 to 2016. Kaji: The Ultimate Gambler Kaji: The Ultimate Gambler is a movie based on the Kaji: The Ultimate Survivor series. The film was first shown in October 2009 and was pretty well-received in the world of anime; domestically, it generated the equivalent of $25 million. Around two years later, Kaji 2 went live. The movie follows Kaji Itou, who finds himself in a tricky situation after an ex-colleague tricks him and he is in significant debt. Kaji turns to illegal gambling as a viable solution, with the other option being to spend 10 years paying what he owes. It’s one of the best examples of gambling anime. Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler By now, you’re probably noticing that there’s a lot more anime with gambling than you perhaps originally thought. Kakegurui, also known as Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler, is yet another example of this. Kakegurui is still running at the time of writing, having first aired in 2014. In the series, those at the top of the high school get there by being good at gambling – rather than any other merits. In this gambling anime series, some of the characters fall into debt – which they must pay off before they graduate.
