Hyakkaou Private Academy is a prestigious institution for the privileged, and was first established 122 years ago. The students there are ranked by their gambling winnings. The winners receive everything including fame and fortune. The winners also dominate the losers. One day, transfer student Yumeko Jabami arrives at the academy, quickly showing she is gambling maniac who loves high stakes.



According to the Japan Times felt that "production values are high: The film's high school resembles a casino for high rollers in a 007 and a political flick." It also called the tone "more comically ironic than melodramatically overwrought."[5]
