There is a game called “Kakegurui,” which is believed to be a very old form of solitaire. In ancient times, a player would take turns laying down cards, with each card representing a different suit in the original game, and winning points when they correctly guess the correct card. Today, the game has been modified so that it can be played at home, and it now includes many new rules.
Yumeko Jabami enrolled in Hyakkaou Private School, where he studied mathematics and dealt with statistics. While in class, he began learning how to play kakegurui, which involves betting, and winning by having the most cards or the highest total value in a single suit. After completing his second season at the school, he decided that he would like to become a teacher someday, so he applied to teach math at an area school. He hoped that if he was accepted, he could earn enough money to help with the bills after his wife passed away, and he also hoped that by participating in a second season of kakegurui at the Hyakkaou Private School that he would be able to increase his knowledge about the game so that he could possibly teach it in the future.
During his second season, he met Masato Takeda, who worked as an instructor at the private school. Takeda taught a class in mbs (Mahjong) strategy and the techniques required to play that game. Together, they came up with a plan to have each student bet two coins on each turn, with one coin being used for the first move, and the other to be used for the last move. The first season’s winner would then be forced to switch to the second season’s bet, with Takeda becoming the official judge of the game.
Unfortunately, the first season did not air in Japan. A few months later, it was being broadcasted to American audiences on MTV. The producers wanted to make a cartoon out of it, so they made a cartoon. The Japanese version of kakegurui is very different from the American version. In the American version, the girl hits the boy with a hammer and he hits back, only to have the girl push him over. In the Japanese version, the boy hits her with the hammer, but she then falls down and he then hits her with the hammer, knocking her out.
Currently, there are four ongoing illustrated light novel series based on the world renowned kakegurui technique. They are: Dragon’s Daughter, written by Tomoko Ninomiya; Raggedy Ninja, written by Ayushitsu Yamada; Hana tour Go Boom, illustrated by Chika Fujimoto, and finally, Welcome to the Nierences, illustrated by Yuichiro Nagashima. Each of these four books has been receiving positive reviews from both hardcore manga fans and non-manga fans alike. Many readers have expressed interest in learning more about this fascinating subject matter.
Many have asked why the Japanese language is so different when compared to the manga style. Some claim that it takes a long time to grasp the Japanese language, while others say that it is simply because the Japanese words used in kakegurui are often more complex than those in other forms of manga. No matter what your beliefs are, one thing is for certain: Kakegurui has indeed captured the attention of fans and has become an important part of the Japan’s internet culture. With all the talk of Naruto, Bleach, Tiger & Bunny, and other popular anime series, it is interesting to see how kakegurui will continue to evolve into a part of the Japanese internet culture.
