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 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.
