Now, Iori must come to terms with himself and find out what his real college dream is.
Like Prison School, Grand Blue features male characters who are heavily infatuated with females and take-part in adult-like activities. Unlike Prison School, which focuses on a boarding-school-like setting, Grand Blue leans more-toward college life.
Kakegurui is about a girl named Jabami Yumeko who enrolls into a school where gambling is the norm, but unknown to the student body, she’s a professional gambler. The anime focuses on Yumeko’s journey to take-down the school’s student-council president Kirari.
Like Prison School, Kakegurui contains self-aware humor and some bizarre animated sequences. To some degree, Kakegurui’s anime adaptation suffered from not having its source material fully adapted.

As Shimoneta‘s plot thickens, Tanukichi must help SOX attack the person he holds dear to him.
