The spring anime season is closing and ‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’ is another of the series that we have to say goodbye to for now. It does not mean at all that the anime has come to an end, because a new animation project has just been confirmed to continue expanding the series.
Another season or movie in sight
‘Ultra Romantic’ has been the subtitle for this third season of ‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’, which has ended with a special one-hour chapter that in principle would have closed the series. Things have been tied enough to leave the story here, but the official account of the franchise has already revealed that there is a new anime project in the works.
No further details have been given about what we can expect, so we could indeed be talking about a fourth season for the series. or even from an anime movie. For now, they have only left us a promotional image for fans to build their own theories.

Keep in mind that for now Aka Akasaka’s manga it has 26 volumes and the anime series has not fully covered them. There’s also two spin-offs of the main manga which have four and six volumes, so we still have a lot of material to adapt and this new project could perhaps focus on these spin-offs.
And then the manga…?
Which brings us to the next point, because the manga has been published since 2015 and in theory entered its final stretch last year. As reported from Sleeve Mogura RE, the manga would end within 14 chapters and the series would have a total of 28 volumes.
These numbers would make a lot of sense, considering the closure of the anime and that last fall it was confirmed that the manga had entered its final stretch. The “final stretch” thing does not always mean that the end of a serialization is practically over, but in a year Akasaka has had time to finish spinning the plots and head towards the closure of the story.
While we see if it actually ends ‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’ or not, all three seasons of the anime can be seen from Crunchyroll. The series follows Miyuki Shirogane and Kaguya Shinomiya, who are in charge of the student council of their prestigious institute. Everyone thinks that they would be the perfect couple and they actually like each other, but they are both too proud to admit it and believe that whoever admits their love first will lose in the competition they have set up for themselves.
