Kakegurui Ending Explained - Spoiler Alert | Netflix Anime

Kakegurui Anime Ending Explained - Big Spoilers Ahead! 

A Netflix Anime Release With An Original Ending

The biggest spoiler is knowing what happens when Yumeko takes on Kirari (the student council pres) in a gambling match in the last episode of Kakegurui, the trending anime series on Netflix. Who wins the gambling match between Yumeko and Kirari? Neither win, it is a tie, a draw, here's how it happens, play by play.

Final Episode (12) Summary

The final battle in the kakegurui episode list of 12, each lasting about 25 minutes begins with Yumeko's friends trying to talk her into cheating in the match with Kirari, because going against the president could be devastating. "I have no need for impurities," said Yumeko. When the match begins, Runa Yomozuki the referee goes over the rules. 

The tarot cards of fate is the name of the final gambling game. Three will select one card from the deck of Major Arcana's 22 cards. Each card in the deck has a number from 0-21, so that will be the score. If "it's upright from the perspective of the one who drew it, it'll be positive, and negative if it's reversed" As the girls play the score goes back and forth with all sorts of claims of cheating.  It is Ryota Suzui's turn and the only way for Yumeko to win is if the "fool" card is drawn. How does he know which to draw, when the odds are 40 to one. Yameko assures him not to worry about her. Then he notices the card has been marked, most likely by the president herself (but why?!). The president had held the fool card, so that must be it right? Nope. He picks, and it is the judgement card in upright, for 20 points, which ties the game, making it a the Tarot Cards of Fate Game a draw between Yumeko and Kirari. In the aftermath the contention is that the president was holding the fool and judgement card together. But, was it the president, Yumeko, actually playing in the final game, or her twin sister, Ririka Momobami?

Major spoiler: Kakegurui twin theory:  

To explain the ending, we might take into account the Kakegurui twin. If you got confused about the student council president being the masked student in the crowd who offers to be the dealer, while the match included the student council president, then the only explanation is that Kirari has a twin. Kirari's twin played the final gambling match against Yumeko instead of the president.

Netflix's "The Open House" Movie - Ending Explained, Spoiler Alert

"The Open House" Ending Explained, Spoilers Netflix recently released the new horror movie, "The Open House", to horrible reviews. The first, big question (spoiler alert) is who was the killer? This movie does not give us the satisfaction of knowing! It gives us no answers, and all those scary mysteries Netlfix promises in the film details, unexplained! And, everybody dies. There was no reason for anyone to watch and kill them, just a bunch of random scare tactics by the directors, and a big let down. How about that for a crappy flick to waste a Friday night on. 
Our Review  - Zero Stars! (with a nod to the semi OK acting by decent cast)
 Lots of red herrings, build ups for no reason, bad plot (could have been summed up in 10 minutes), lots of things happening but no explanation, and everybody dies with no answer to who the killer is nor the motive. No there was no ghosts to explain the weird stuff that happens (which would have been better than the meaningless dr…

Devilman Crybaby Ending Explained - Spoiler Alert

Ending Explained - Devilman Crybaby
Beware, spoilers ahead - let's look at Netflix's (watch here) Devilman Crybaby's ending explained. Some hated the ending (see Reddit comments), and you can imagine why, because in the end humanity dies. Yes, everyone dies. Disappointing especially when the whole movie sets up a hero (the boy, Akira) to merge with one of the demons attacking the planet in order to stop the take over. But, through the whole movie, we only see how flawed humanity is, and in the end, it's over for the people of Earth. The Earth is destroyed. That is how it ends. Post-credits shows a planet, but it is not the Earth but another "moon" created from the debris of the destroyed Earth, which may foretell yet another cycle of the same, after everything cools and spawns life again.

Moral of the story? A single man cannot change fate. Humans as a species are too selfish, and are doomed?

Infinity Chamber Ending Explained

Infinity Chamber Ending Explained - Comment with your own theory - Spoiler Alert! Infinity Chamber (trailer here) was criticized by the LA Times for going on, and on and on, but what
is most intriguing is the ending. After nodding off through the whole film, the ending pulls things back in sharp focus by making you wonder what happened. After searching the internet, there are no official explanations for what happened, only some theories on Reddit, some of which make total sense. 
Ending: unfortunately, Frank Lerner did not make it out, whether out is the infinity chamber we saw throughout the movie, or wherever (in an interrogation to find the flashdrive, the hospital, etc.), Frank is still in there, and making peace with that by giving up the struggle and enjoying his time with his memory of something better.
