Love is War, and whoever confesses first loses. Kaguya-sama follows a motto just like that. The live-action film of the series has revealed a surprise for fans.
Tagging the series as a simple rom-com will not do it justice. It has romance but with a twist where the lovers try to trick each other to confess first. The one to admit their love first loses in this battle of wits.
The live-action film of Kaguya-sama was broadcasted over television for the first time yesterday, and a big announcement followed it. A sequel film has been announced and it will premiere on 20th August.
Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai 2: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunōsen is the tentative title for the project. The cast and staff from the first film will be reprising their roles.
TOHO began streaming a new video yesterday to announce the upcoming film.
Sho Hirano (Miyuki Shirogane) and Kanna Hashimoto (Kaguya Shinomiya) announce the film’s title and its opening date while lightly bickering with each other in the video.
The first film premiered on 6th September 2019. It was aired on TV on 5th January 2021, and a video was released teasing a big announcement/confession.
Kaguya-sama’s live-action film topped the weekend box office on its release. It earned $21 million from its run in Japan and quickly stole 24th place in Japan’s top-grossing movies list.
An anime adaptation was also inspired by the original manga, which premiered in January 2019. The anime has two seasons. Funimation simul-streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.
The anime is likely to get a third season as well as an OVA.
Kaguya-sama is a Japanese seinen manga series written and illustrated by Aka Akasaka. It started in Shueisha’s Miracle Jump in May 2015 and was transferred to Weekly Young Jump in March 2016.
Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane are two geniuses who stand atop their prestigious academy’s student council, making them among the elite. But it’s lonely at the top, and each has fallen for the other.
There’s just one huge problem standing in the way of lovey-dovey bliss—they’re both too prideful to be the first to confess their romantic feelings and thus become the “loser” in the competition of love.
