Where can I read the manga and watch the anime?
Kaguya-sama: Love is War is a Japanese rom-com manga series written and illustrated by Aka Akasaka. From May 2015 to January 2016, it was serialized in Shueisha’s seinen manga magazine Miracle Jump. Kaguya-sama: Love is War was later moved to Weekly Young Jump where it ran from March 2016 to November 2022. The manga’s English version has been licensed by Viz Media for release in North America.
From January to March 2019, an anime TV series adaptation by A-1 Pictures aired in Japan while its second season aired from April to June 2022. In 2021, an OVA episode was released. From April to June 2022, a third season aired.
On December 17, 2022, an anime film titled The First Kiss That Never Ends will premiere in theaters in Japan. Kaguya-sama: Love is War also inspired a live-action adaptation directed by Hayato Kawai, which was released on September 2019. The English version of the anime has been licensed by Aniplex of America for release in North America.
What is the plot of Kaguya-sama: Love is War?
The story of Kaguya-sama was inspired by the Japanese folktale The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter, but is set in modern times. The plot revolves around a battle of wits between Vice-President Kaguya and the Student Council President Miyuki Shirogane both trying to force the other to confess their feelings of love first. They both consider confessing first to be a loss in the war of love.
It’s fun to watch the crazy plans Kaguya and Shirogane come up with to try and force the other to confess, but chaotic Chika Fujiwara usually foils their plans unintentionally.
