‘Kaguya Sama: Love is War,’ at its worst, can be as typical as any other high school anime out there. However, what makes it stand out is its incredibly well-written comedy and characters. For the most part, it follows somewhat of a standalone format where each episode adopts a whole new comical story highlighting the battle of wits between its two main characters. Even so, it has an overarching plot that loosely binds all of its episodes together.
While its entire first season was about the hilarious tsundere battles between Kaguya and Miyuki, its second season brings a lot more “feels” than laughs by highlighting their romantic endeavors and even shedding some light on their backstories. This approach surprisingly works in the anime’s favor and with two seasons down, we just can’t get enough of this one. So if, like us, you’re already looking forward to its next season, read on further to know all about the prospects of its season 3.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’ season 1 premiered on January 12, 2019, and with a total of 12 episodes, it finished airing on March 30, 2019. After being very well received by the anime community, it was renewed for another season which released on April 11, 2020 and finished airing June 27, 2020. Surprisingly, the comedy and high school drama in its second season turned out to be even better than the first and further increased its popularity, making it one of the best rom-com anime out there. So clearly, there is a lot of demand for its third season and since its primary characters, Kaguya and Miyuki, are still in high school, there’s clearly a lot more room for a sequel as well.
As you may already know, ‘Kaguya-sama’ is an adaptation of a manga series of the same name written by Aka Akasaka. The manga has been in publication since March 2016, and so far, it has a total of 18 published volumes. Among these, the most recent one came out in April 2020. The second season of the anime adapts close to 92 chapters and 11 volumes of the source material. So there are still enough manga volumes for a whole new 12-episode season. Moreover, considering how the mangaka has been creating new content consistently, there will be enough source material for at least two new seasons by the end of 2021. Although A-1 Pictures (‘Sword Art Online‘, ‘The Promised Neverland‘) has made no official announcements regarding its renewal, we expect ‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’ Season 3 to release sometime in 2021. Till then, you can check out other similar rom-com anime.
