Kakegurui and live-action Fullmetal Alchemist film head to Netflix

When Kakegurui first aired on Netflix Japan back in July, it knew when to hold ’em and keep other territories on tenterhooks for its full release. But if you’ve been playing patience in the UK, US or the Phillipines, your turn is coming around. The streaming service has listed a February 1st premiere for Kakegurui‘s first season, all 12 episodes dropping on that day for all three countries.

The live-action Fullmetal Alchemist film, directed by Fumihiko Sori and released in December, also has a date for its debut as a ‘Netflix Original’. Ed and Al will appear on February 19th, but only on Netflix US, and unfortunately there’s no sign of the film in any other territories as of yet.

The Kakegurui anime, inspired by Homura Kawamoto and Toru Naomura’s manga, is already set up for a second series. Yen Press publish the manga in English under the title Kakegurui – Compulsive Gambler, and describe it as follows:

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!
