Kaguya-sama: Love is War will be making its feature film debut in theaters overseas in just a few more weeks, but fans in the United States can get ready for it to make its way to theaters internationally beginning next year! When the third season of the anime taking on Aka Akasaka’s original manga came to an end, it was announced that the franchise would be continuing with its very first movie taking on The First Kiss That Never Ends arc from the series. Fittingly, this holiday set arc will actually release around the holidays in Japan.
During a special panel for the movie at Anime NYC in which fans got to see the first third of its events, it was announced that Aniplex of America will be bringing Kaguya-sama: Love is War -The First Kiss That Never Ends- to theaters in the United States some time in February 2023. It’s likely going to be a limited screening event given that it will be launching in select theaters, but at least fans outside of Japan will get the chance to check out this new movie soon enough! You can see the announcement below:
Kaguya-sama: Love is War -The First Kiss That Never Ends- will first be hitting theaters across Japan later this December, but with its United States launch next year that means there is plenty of time to catch up with the events of the first three seasons of the anime in order to be properly ready for the new arc playing out in the movie. If you were curious to do so, you can find the first three seasons of Kaguya-sama: Love is War streaming with Crunchyroll. They tease the third season of the anime as such:
“From a good family? Check! A good personality? Check! Shuchiin Academy is where all these elite students with bright futures flock to. As the two leaders of the student council, Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane have supposedly fallen in love… But after almost half a year, nothing has happened!? They both have too much pride and can’t be honest. Things have gotten troublesome, and they are now caught in a war of ‘How to get the other to confess their love first.’ This is a whole new romantic comedy, following an outbreak of cunning warfare between two elite students in love.”
