Shueisha has announced that Homura Kawamoto, creator of the Kakegurui series, will be launching a new manga series on its Shonen Jump+ digital platform this May. The new manga is titled Bakumatsu Tobaku Barbaroi (Bakumatsu Gambling Barbaroi) and will feature art by Toyotaka Haneda. No other details about the manga were revealed.
Unlike many schools, attending Hyakkaou Private Academy prepares students for their time in the real world. Since many of the students are the children of the richest people in the world, the academy has its quirks that separate it from all the others. By day, it is a normal school, educating its pupils in history, languages, and the like. But at night, it turns into a gambling den, educating them in the art of dealing with money and manipulating people. Money is power; those who come out on top in the games stand at the top of the school.
Yumeko Jabami, a seemingly naive and beautiful transfer student, is ready to try her hand at Hyakkaou’s special curriculum. Unlike the rest, she doesn’t play to win, but for the thrill of the gamble, and her borderline insane way of gambling might just bring too many new cards to the table.
