Kaguya Sama wa Kokurasetai is a very unorthodox take on the overdone rom-com series. The comedic element is balanced well with the tension and competition that goes around the show all the time. It stands out due to its slapstick nature and memorable characters.

V. Production Update
Considering the immense popularity the show got, a new season wouldn’t be far away and is likely to be greenlit for production. But anime fans will probably be waiting for at least another year for Season 3 because of the spread of Covid-19.

A key visual was released by the official Twitter account. The visual features the announcement of Season 3 of Kaguya-sama as well as a special OVA to be made for the fans of the series.
A short teaser was released with scenes from Season 2 announcing the OVA release and the production of a new season.
7. Kaguya Sama Season 3 Expected Plot
Romance is beginning to blossom at certain levels but only to be disturbed by certain members of the student council, creating misunderstandings and confusion in the process.
Ai Hayasaka is assigned the task of not letting any girl talk to Miyuki. The situation is a bit awkward for our guy because he had previously straight out declined Hayasaka’s confession, and she takes this role to form leverage.
Then there are rap battles among the members of the student council, which ultimately causes everyone to lash out their feelings.
A school cultural event ‘Devote Hearts Festival’ will take place, which will up the romantic tension between Miyuki and Kaguya and most probably will lead to confessions from both sides.
The next season will mark a romantic tale of chaotic confusions and number confessions.
