New ‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’ Anime Film Set for Late 2022 Debut

Kaguya-sama: Love is War has completely changed the way we perceive romance. As the title states, love is indeed a war.

Shinomiya and Miyuki’s love rivalry may look like a years-long affair, but in reality, it started a few months after they entered high school. Looking at them now, the pair has made a lot of progress in just two years, considering how they are not so prideful now and able to confess.

One of the most defining arcs of their relationship is ‘The First Kiss Never Ends,’ which is getting adapted as an anime film.

The franchise has revealed a key visual for ‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War – The First Kiss Never Ends,’ confirming its winter 2022 premiere.

I like to think of this arc as a deeply philosophical one as Miyuki and Shinomiya are often seen reflecting on their past in it. They both value each other but need to get over their past and insecurities to have a typical romance.

Keeping this in mind, the franchise gave us a visual featuring two versions of Shinomiya beside a witness stand. One is shown sleeping and lost in her dreamland, while the other is wide awake as many thoughts are running through her mind.

The arc consists of many such scenes and chapters for which the visual is the accurate symbolism.

Although the arc takes place right after the couple’s first kiss, they have trouble putting a label on their relationship. Kaguya wishes to go exclusive with Shirogane but wants him to be more direct and confident about his feelings.

What’s funny is that none of them has actually admitted their feelings vocally in front of each other, resuming the war of who confesses first. Obviously, we’re eager to see who comes out victorious in it.

The movie will definitely end up with Shirogane and Kaguya becoming a couple at last, but we’re not here for that. We’re here to see the chaos, confusion, comedy, and romance that will lead to them speaking their feelings out loud.

I hope the staff takes a look at our excitement and gives us a release date soon.
