Kakegurui spin-off, Kakegurui Twin, is now streaming on Netflix worldwide. Studio MAPPA is animating the series, which focuses on Mary Saotome. Six episodes are available at the moment.
Kaori Makita is directing the anime, while Yuichiro Hayashi (who directed the original Kakegurui series and later Attack on Titan Final Season) is the chief director. Shigeru Murakoshi is in charge of series composition and Ni Manabu is doing character designs. Technoboys Pulcraft Green-Fund is composing the music. Minami Tanaka, who voiced in the original series, is returning to voice Mary. The rest of the cast includes:
- Yuko Kaida as Sachiko
- Rina Honizumi as Tsuzura
- Seichiro Yamashita as Aoi
- Aoi Koga as Mikura
- Yo Taichi as Yukimi

The story is based on the Kakegurui Twin spin-off manga written by Homura Kawamoto and illustrated by Kei Saiki. The story serves as a prequel to the main series, Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler, which was written by Kawamoto and illustrated by Toru Naomura.
Yen Press licensed the spin-off and describes the plot as:
As a first-year student of the renowned Hyakkaou Private Academy, Mary Saotome knows her future is set for a one-way cruise to the top…that is, until an encounter with an old-classmate-turned-house-pet throws the newbie princess into the world of gambling! Can a normal girl like Mary make friends and survive debtless through only wit and luck?
