A Kaguya-sama: Love is War anime movie has been confirmed to be in production. This news comes following the announcement of a new Love is War anime project shortly after season 3 ended. The news was announced in Kadokawa’s Newtype magazine on Friday. The film will be titled Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: First Kiss wa Owaranai (Kaguya-sama: Love is War: The First Kiss Never Ends), according to Anime News Network. The film will adapt an entire manga arc of the same name. It takes place directly after the events of the show’s third season.
The First Kiss Never Ends Arc is the 14th arc of the Kaguya-sama series. It begins from Chapter 142 and ends in Chapter 151 of the manga, taking place after the Dual Confessions Culture Festival Arc, which was adapted in the third season of the anime. The arc will be particularly exciting for fans as Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane have finally had their first kiss at the end of Season 3. We can now see where their love story heads after so much build-up.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War: The First Kiss Never Ends’s title appears awkward, and hopefully, that will be stylised just like -Ultra Romantic- was. The arc’s name in the manga is translated as “Their First Kiss Doesn’t End” by Viz (which is available to purchase in India).
When the last episode of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War -Ultra Romantic- aired on June 25, 2022, the official Twitter account of the show shared a visual which said “Kaguya wants to tell you,” and “New anime production decision.”

There is no word on when the Kaguya-sama: Love is War anime movie will release. Just like most anime movie releases, barring a few, the upcoming film will likely release in Japanese cinemas first, with an international release afterwards as Aniplex and Crunchyroll are involved with the property. As for India, the recently released Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie arrived late in the country but has surprised the industry with its performance (Read IGN India’s review here). Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is going to release in August in India, and hopefully its performance will cement the demand for anime movies in India as fans have been demanding the movie’s release here.
Kaguya-sama is also a very popular anime series, and Season 3 was one of the best shows of 2022 so far, so hopefully, we get to see a release of the movie in the country as well. As for Kaguya-sama Season 4, there is no word on it yet.
