Kakegurui: Twin gives a standalone prequel story to Saotome Mary that welcomes newcomers and old fans alike with a story that feels just as fresh and fun as the main series, as well as some of its same problems.
Both series, at the surface level, encourage their audiences to be mindful and critical of the ideas they’re asked to buy into as the price of inclusion. However, there is a stark contrast between how these series portray the underlying power dynamics, prejudices, and active malice behind these policies, as well as the particulars of their respective calls to action. This reveals a difference in priorities; where Insight offers vague hope and comfort with no clear call to action, Yurikuma actively aims to elevate marginalized voices.
