Forget grades at Hyakkaou Private Academy, an elite school for the rich, gambling is the only way to succeed. Blackjack, poker, rock-paper-scissors – winners rule the school. This year, the ultimate prize is up for grabs - a ‘blank future’ that allows the winner to do whatever they want after graduation. Everyone knows that the student council president will win – until new transfer student Yumeko Jabami enters the fray. Based on the hit manga from Homura Kawamoto, this is a comic satire of a society that is congenial on the surface but brutal underneath, with no second chances.
