In a world where status and power-ranking are everything, love is also a matter of power balance. Kaguya-sama: Love is War follows a motto where the first person to confess loses in the continuous struggle for power.
The series brings a fresh perspective into the rom-com genre. Kaguya and Miyuki keep no stone unturned to make the other person confess first, but their failures result in hilarious situations each time.
It is a relationship where competitiveness is cherished above all.
The official Twitter account of Kaguya-sama: Love is War has revealed that three new OVAs will be released for the series on 19th May. The OVAs will be shipped with the 22nd manga volume of the series.

“Kaguya-sama: Love is War Volume 1” is the first episode of the three, and it will be a swimsuit episode. The tweet shows Shirogane and Ishigami talking about a magazine that features women in swimsuits.
The second volume will be about a book that has been found by Ishigami and Shirogane and its contents are questionable. The third episode is titled “Kaguya-sama Wants Him to Eat,” and it will focus on a fried rice making competition.
Two anime seasons from the series have been released and a third season is expected soon. The first two seasons premiered in January 2019 and April 2020. Funimation streamed both seasons.
A live-action film was also inspired by the manga, which premiered in September 2019. The film was a box-office hit, earning $21 million from its run in Japan.
The film is also getting a sequel, which will be released on 20th August 2021.
The original manga won the 65th Shogakukan Manga Awards in 2020 and had sold over 13 million copies by November 2020.
With such a unique approach to rom-com, the franchise has gained much popularity that we hope will only increase in the future.
About Kaguya-sama: Love is War
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.
