Soon, we shall see what Kaguya has to say…

Earlier today, an official website and Twitter account opened their doors to announce that Aka Akasaka’s Kaguya-sama: Love Is War (Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen) will get an anime TV series.

A key visual for the project, as well as an illustration by Aka Akasaka were revealed. We break the details down below:

Aka Akasaka’s Kaguya-sama: Love Is War launched in the pages of Shueisha’s Miracle Jump in 2015. The series ran in the publication for a year before being moved over to Weekly Young Jump . Nine compiled volumes have been produced to date, with the latest hitting stores on April 19.

Viz Media currently holds the rights to the Kaguya-sama: Love Is War manga in North America. They describe the title as:

Two geniuses. Two brains. Two hearts. One battle. Who will confess their love first…?!

Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane are two geniuses who stand atop their prestigious academy’s student council, making them the elite among 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! And so begins their daily schemes to force the other to confess first!
