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!

Vous voyez, lorsque vous êtes les fils et les filles des plus riches des riches, ce n'est pas une aptitude sportive ou une sagesse de livres qui vous tiendront au courant.

À l'Académie Privée Hyakkaou, les gagnants vivent comme des rois, et les perdants sont mis à l'écarlate. Mais quand Yumeko Jabami s'inscrit, elle va enseigner à ces enfants à quoi ressemble vraiment un haut rouleau!

yandere school. guess you could watch a few episodes before the excessive crazy got tiring, but i don't see this getting a 2nd season.
First off, this anime is definitely not for everyone. The animation style is very dark, with some very exaggerated facial expressions (mostly to convey that characters are crazy) and the plotline itself was very unconventional.
Again, not for everyone, but it was intriguing (if for no other reason, it is very different from other anime).
I don't really care one way or the other about the concept, which is overshadowed by the sophisticated art style anyway. That being the case, it becomes relevant that the closeups of the girls' teeth and lips when they were being maniacal were pretty creepy. People tend to like that kind of thing or not (for me, not).
Art direction is very forward, reminds me of Maria Holic-esque. Fan service was over the top, but that may just be experimentation to reel in audience however could also portray the lush and lustful side of gambling. All in all it will have to do much more to win me over as it seems like it may use a lot of ongoing plots and cliches.
twisted and warped. It not even shy on fan service on the end track. Like they didn't really have anything to show. Even for a first episode it leaves no hold bar in visuals.
