It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Kakegurui , but even considering my bias, there are many notable characters in this series. With two seasons down and one more to go, it’s likely time for some characters to shine brighter than others. So today I’d like to take a moment to discuss the character I admire the most in this series and why they have earned my respect.
Ladies and gentlemen, Yumeko Jabami. All of her glory shall be laid out right here on these digital pages for me to explain just how much I love our dear, psychotic blonde-haired heroine from Hyakkaou Private Academy. She is hands down the best character in this series, and I’ll tell you why. Yumeko Jabami is the protagonist of Kakegurui , but she’s not your average hero. She doesn’t have any sort of special skill; no special abilities or anything like that. What makes her so great to watch is how she goes about doing things. Jabami is a straight-up gambler. She’ll bet anything on anything at any time, even if the odds aren’t in her favor. However, this isn’t always a good thing because she can become quite reckless with how she bets and who she bets against.

These are the people you shouldn’t play against in Kakegurui !
Mako Hyakkuou (CV: Madoka Yonezawa) Mako is the chairman’s daughter, a first-year student at Hyakkaou Private Academy, and Yumeko’s classmate. She is a gentle girl who loves her father and is kind to others, but the moment one of her classmates tries to harm her or her friends, she has no problem beating them up herself.
Introduce who you admire the most in Kakegurui and why!
To say the least, Jabami isn’t always looking out for herself or those close to her. She just does whatever she thinks is fun and that’s that. Once we see this in Episode 1 as she bets her own money on a coin toss against someone who was trying to kill her during class, we know there’s something special about her.
I believe this is what I love most about Jabami as well as what inspires me the most to be a fan of hers. She doesn’t care about winning or losing, she just wants to have fun and do something that interests her. Watching a character like that isn’t a common thing in entertainment these days, and it’s always nice when you can find someone willing to go against the grain.
What makes them so great and why should we love them?
Jabami is also a very determined character, especially when she sets her mind to something. Take Episode 13 for example. Jabami bets everything on black and Yumeko Ootawara (CV: Ayako Kawasumi) now owes her. As soon as Jabami wins, she doesn’t pressure Ootawara into giving up anything in return for losing such a large bet. She just tells her to pay up and that’s that. Jabami is clearly someone who keeps their promises and treats others fairly regardless of the situation.
In the end, Yumeko Jabami is a character who stands out as being different from the others in Kakegurui since she’s willing to do things most people wouldn’t. She’s not afraid of anything and she doesn’t care what other people think about her. In a series that is full of crazy characters trying to out-do each other, Jabami always stands out as being different and that’s why I love her so much.
I think it’s safe to say that we can all agree with this. Jabami is probably the best character in Kakegurui and she doesn’t need any abilities or skills to prove it.
