The last Russian Roulette – Fantasia International Film Festival

Reading time: 3 minute

Kakegurui is on a journey. It’s a silly story that embraces ecchi and unravels the envelope by leaving its images in unsettling, hilarious, and high -profile situations. But he does all this within the walls of the high school. As for the living things that have come out, the ecchi is almost gone but the rest will light up the lizard. So so, Kakegurui 2: Ultimate Russian Roulette is here to expand the world with Kakegurui’s live action series and film.

He is no stranger to manga and anime transformation – especially with his new work Tokyo Revengers—Tsutomu Hanabusa is the director and co -author of Kakegurui 2. In addition, the film was written by Minato Takano and based on the manga by Homura Kawamoto and Tôru Naomura. Like the first movie, Kakegurui 2 It is an original story that uses images and the world created by man to be the best. In the film, we return to Hyakkaoh Academy, where students engage in serious gambling to climb the social ladder – and there are no educators. After Yumeko Jabami (Minami Hamabe) won the last film that paved the way for a change in high school, the student council led by Kirari (Elaiza Ikeda) did the things that end to irritate him and undo his winning streaks.

What’s even better, gambling debt is raising new “animal birds” (students can’t honor the relationship) and they’re being sent to work. Even better, Kirari has made a deal with Shikigami (Ryusei Fujii), an academy alumnus who fired him two years earlier. But when he returns to raise the bar, he puts the students in a sense of disaster as he deceives his opponents with real -world consequences, forcing them to fold. When Yumeko finds herself at the center of her knowledge, she finds herself in a one -sided game that she must lose to prevent Shikigami from abusing her friends. and other students. And while it may seem like a hoax, it’s only the beginning of the film’s struggle with the finale that requires Kiari and Yumeko to reunite when Shikigami sets him apart. himself to be the new President.

Say that Kakegurui 2 ups, the ante doesn’t start to cover the distance of the deep end that this movie goes. And I speak in the best of ways. Much like Tokyo Revengers, recorded at Fantasia Fest 2021, Hanabusa went to great lengths to see what Kakegurui would do, well, Kakegurui. And that friend was Yumeko.

As for Yuemko, Minami Hamabe is amazing. She is entertaining and happy and confident. He holds the focus and the center of the story very well. Yumeko’s wisdom and ability to read people are fully demonstrated Kakegurui 2 He is the one who threatens his gambling claim. Hanabusa takes the time to reorganize everything around him. Suzui, played by Mahiro Takasugi, was my biggest complaint for the first film. It’s loud and turning but here, inside Kakegurui 2, Suzui is there to support and support Yuemko. In addition, we see Kirari as an enhancing power in this film. Played by Elaiza Ikeda, she gives Yumeko a piece of cold paper and taps it to put the story not only in the form of a story but also in the air.

One of the most important aspects of this change is to capture the facial features and features that are close to the source. While this was accomplished by the actors actually increasing their laughter, their smiles, and their wide -eyed trembling, this was moved forward by the use of light. That said, the use of flashlights also helps to cast shadows on the faces of objects that help to awaken the beauty of the face seen by the lizard. Also, the decoration inside Kakegurui 2 very good work. While some hairs are customized in style or color, others take care of their signature, and Kiaria has more double -layered loops. Added to that, the eccentricity of the student body has survived very well while Shikigami is kind of eccentric in his simple work.

Finally, the manner in which the exposition is incorporated into the film is balanced. At the start of the film, we had a simple introduction to the Hyakkaoh Academy to help new viewers wake up faster. Also, during the games, there are covers and annotations that work to set the rules for the viewers of the movie and for the viewer as well. This helps keep the viewer from losing the sometimes difficult rules and keeps the gamble running.

wholeheartedly Kakegurui 2: Ultimate Russian Roulette It’s perfect for fans of the manga and anime series with no intention of doing it again. It is an original story that strikes a chord with what is so desired of this complex property. Also, I want Hanabusa to lead every anime/manga adaptation he can get his hands on.
