High Card, the latest anime from Kakegurui creator Homura Kawamoto, has a new trailer and artwork.
The new teaser introduces the fantastical world of High Card. The series revolves around a unique deck of magical playing cards, each of which bestows supernatural abilities on its possessor. The five main characters in the series are members of “High Card,” a secret society dedicated to collecting all 52 cards and completing the deck. The anime is set to premiere in the year 2023.
Kawamoto and Hikaru Mino, who also created the novelization of Kakegurui, wrote the new series’ narrative. TMS Entertainment (Lupin the Third, Tiny Toon Adventures) and Studio Hibari, the parent company of animation studio Lerche, are collaborating on the anime (Assassination Classroom, Classroom of the Elite).
Gen Sato (Dr. Stone, Pretty Boy Detective Club), Toshiki Masuda (Haikyuu!!, My Hero Academia), Shun Horie (Rent-a-Girlfriend), Haruka Shiraishi (That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime), and Yuichiro Umehara will all lend their voices to the series (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans).
The universe of High Card will be explored in distinct manga and novel series in addition to the anime series. This isn’t Kawamoto and Muno’s first try at creating a multi-media brand: the two collaborated on the universe and storey for Build Dive -#000000 (Code Black), a multimedia franchise told through an anime series and a collectible card game.
High Card Plot
High Card is set in a fictional universe where some cards known as the X-Playing Cards have the capacity to grant people who possess them extraordinary superhuman abilities. There are 52 X-Playing Cards strewn about by a number of people. These cards activate a person’s ‘Buddy,’ granting them enhanced skills. The global order can be manipulated by using the abilities of these cards.
Finn grew up as an orphan on the streets. When he learns that the orphanage where he grew up is about to close, he resolves to make some quick cash. To do the same, he goes to a casino and tries his luck at gambling. However, he becomes embroiled in a car chase and deadly shooting that is sparked by a lucky card. Later, Finn learns about the existence of a secret organisation called High Card, which is made up of players. The King Of Fourland has direct jurisdiction over the High Card. They are given the task of collecting the X-Cards while posing as employees of the automobile Pinochle.
Finn joins the organisation as the fifth member and sets out on a quest to find the cards. Finn’s adventure, however, involves more than just card hunting, as he learns about the hazards of the profession. More organisations — the rival automotive maker Who’s Who and the mafia family Klondikes – are on the lookout for these lucky cards.
The rivals will face off against one other, each with their own goals in mind. Make sure you’re ready for the showdown.

Chris Redgrave, a 20-year-old character, is played by Toshiki Masuda. A flirty, street-smart guy who knows how to get a woman to do what he wants. He can handle any automotive, including vehicles, thanks to his unequalled handling talents.
