The first part of the live-action film premiered in Japan last May 2019.

A 10-episode live-action TV series premiered in Japan last January 2018 and is now available via Netflix. A second season of the TV series premiered in March 2019.

Yen Press describes the series' story as:

Hyakkaou Private Academy. An institution for the privileged with a very peculiar curriculum. You see, when you're the sons and daughters of the wealthiest of the wealthy, it's not athletic prowess or book smarts that keep you ahead. It's reading your opponent, the art of the deal. What better way to hone those skills than with a rigorous curriculum of gambling? At Hyakkaou Private Academy, the winners live like kings, and the losers are put through the wringer. But when Yumeko Jabami enrolls, she's gonna teach these kids what a high roller really looks like!
