A scathing satire based on Homura Kawamoto’s hit manga of the same name, where Hyakkaoh Private Academy students are ranked on their gambling abilities rather than grades.

Forget grades at Hyakkaou Private Academy, an elite school for the rich. Here, gambling is the only way to succeed. Blackjack, poker, rock-paper-scissors—as long as you bet, it doesn’t matter! Winners rule the school, while the losers are stripped of their humanity and forced to become ‘cats’ and ‘dogs’.

This year, the ultimate prize is up for grabs: a ‘blank future’ that allows the winner to do whatever they want after graduation, rather than have their life’s path decided for them. Everyone knows the student council president will secure victory – that is, until new student Yumeko Jabami enters the competition. She seems to love nothing more than taking risks, but does she have what it takes to topple the president?
