Kakegurui or just Compulsive Gamblers is one of the most chaotic anime to have come out in recent years. It is notorious for having some of the most eccentric characters in anime and an over the top premise to go along with it.
Kakegurui is based on pure madness and the craziness that goes on within the walls of Hyakkaou Gakuen. The characters in Kakegurui are complex, they have unique motivations, and moreover, unpredictable insanity to go along with it.
Kakegurui characters as a rule are not of a very strong moral character and are working mostly for their own interests. But this is also what makes them memorable in my eyes. But without further delay, let’s take a look at some of the most memorable characters in Kakegurui and see, just how crazy they can get.
|Birth Date:||30th June|
Yumeko is by far, the most beloved and memorable character from Kakegurui. She may seem normal, and even ordinary at first. But don’t let her innocent appearance fool you. Yumeko loves the thrill of gambling and the feeling of danger that comes along with it.
Her obsession with gambling is soo great that she is willing to put her life along the line for an exciting bet. Gambling is addictive, and there is no bigger gambling addict than Jabami Yumeko from Kakegurui.
Kirari Momobami: Highly Memorable Kageurui Character
On the second spot, we have the 105th president of Hyakkaou Gakuen, Kirari Momobami. She is the leader of the 100 devouring families and is the mastermind of the current hierarchy system at Hyakkaou Gakuen.
Kirari Momobami is a refined lady, who rose at the top of the Hyakkaou Gakuen as a freshman there. She is the type of person who will devour anyone around her if they are not careful. Kirari is a self-centered narcissist who likes to control people and gambles out of boredom.
Ririka Momobami is the Vice President at Hyakkaou Gakuen, and is the older twin sister of Kirari Momobami. Contrary to her sister’s cold and manipulative personality, Ririka has a very caring and shy character. She is a socially awkward person, who gets easily flustered and embarrassed over little things.
Appearance-wise, Ririka and Kirari look identical, but their opposite personalities make Ririka a bit more endearing than her sister. She had to live in the shadow of her little sister all her life, but Ririka’s cute demeanor and straightforward nature has made her a fan favorite like none other.
Runa Yomozuki is a rather youthful-looking girl who is a member of Hyakkaou Gakuen’s election Committee. She also oversees gambling matches as a referee and comes off as a rather cheerful character from her committee announcements.
But contrary to her friendly and innocent perception, Runa is a devilish cruel character who likes to see people suffer. In this regard, she is like Kirari and also enjoys the pet system at Hyakkaou Gakuen.
But despite this, Fair Play is extremely important to Runa, as she is even willing to put behind her prejudice in order to make sure that all gamblings at Hyakkaou Gakuen are fair.
Midari Ikishima is crazy. She is the head of the Beatification Counsel at Hyakkaou Gakuen and is the most deranged character in the series. Midari is someone who gets off from gambling similar to Yumeko, but unlike Yumeko, she goes further to cause bodily harm above anything else.
She is willing to kill herself or even amputate her body if the situation calls for it. Midari loves the thrill of danger and is willing to go at any length in pursuit of it.
|Birth Date:||March 8th|
Mary Saotome is a sadist. She is a student at Hyakkaou Gakuen and is a close ally of Jabami Yumeko. She has a harsh personality, where she openly mocks anyone who tries to come her way. And even goes as far as to torment her opponents during gambling matches.
Mary is someone who likes to be sensible at times, but her over the top ojou-sama demeanor makes her come off as a narcissist. She is a prideful, arrogant character who takes pleasure in hurting people.
Ryota Suzui is by far the most level headed character in Kakegurui. He is a student at Hyakkaou Gakuen with no redeeming qualities. Being pretty normal, he is quite average and has no special characteristics that make him stand out.
But, among crazy characters like Midari, Yumeko, and even Mary, Ryota is a fresh breeze of normality that we rarely get to see in the show.
Ryota may not be a lunatic like others in Kakegurui, but his sane takes on the insanity that Kakegurui is about makes him memorable.
Itsuki Sumeragi likes power. She is a student at Hyakkaou Gakuen and is the daughter of the president of a prominent Toy Company in Japan. She is an arrogant prideful character who is willing to go to any lengths to get what she wants no matter how creepy or weird it is.
Itsuki is so deranged that she has a nail collection made up of real nails
Yumemi Yumemite is an idol and a student at Hyakkaou Gakuen. She comes off as an innocent idol who loves her fans, but in reality, Yumemi Yumemite is a hypocrite who hates her fans more than anything else. She likes to put on a front for others, but Yumemi is a narcissist who doesn’t care about anyone besides her own self.
Kaede is the Treasurer of the Student Council at Hyakkaou Gakuen. He is a self-centered narcissist character very much like Yumemi and Itsuki. He is a manipulative, and power-hungry character who is willing to go to any lengths to get what he wants.
