Rio: Rainbow Gate! is a 2011 anime series from Tokyo MX that centers around Rio Rollins Tachibana, a dealer at the Howard Resort and the most popular dealer in the establishment. The show is a mix of comedy, action, and gambling, following Rio and a group of characters as they play various casino-style games.

At the Howard Resort, guests come to play games and potentially win big, all while being entertained by the dealers. Rio is one of the most popular dealers at the resort, with her charm and skill at card games drawing in crowds. Her ultimate goal is to collect all 13 legendary gate cards, which are said to lead to untold riches and are held by different dealers around the world.

Despite her success and popularity, Rio has a rather unique problem: bad luck. Whenever she's involved in a big game, her extremely bad luck seems to cause disaster and chaos wherever she goes. Throughout the series, Rio aims to gather all of the gate cards and prove herself as a lucky dealer.

Alongside Rio are a host of other characters, including her best friend and fellow dealer, Mint Clark, who is always by her side to lend a helping hand. They regularly team up with other dealers and guests as they work their way towards collecting all of the gate cards.

One of the most compelling parts of Rio: Rainbow Gate! is the various games that the characters play throughout the show. The majority of these games are based on classic casino games like blackjack, baccarat, and roulette, but with a fantastical twist. For example, one game involves the characters facing off in a game of "battle pairs," where the cards come to life and fight each other. Another game sees Rio and friends racing each other on snowmobiles.

The animation in Rio: Rainbow Gate! is vibrant and colorful, with a lot of emphasis placed on the characters' outfits and personalities. Each character has their own distinct style and design, making them easy to recognize and identify on screen. The animation style also helps to bring the various casino games to life, with the games feeling lively and exciting.

The voice cast for Rio: Rainbow Gate! features a number of talented actors, with Eri Kitamura taking on the lead role of Rio. Kitamura infuses Rio with a sense of charm and charisma that draws in audiences and makes her instantly likable. The rest of the cast is equally talented, with each actor bringing their own unique style and energy to their respective roles.

Overall, Rio: Rainbow Gate! is a fun and entertaining anime series that is sure to appeal to fans of gambling and fantasy. While the show may not be for everyone, its colorful characters, exciting games, and engaging storyline make it well worth checking out.
