Get ready for a sneak peek on Kaguya-sama: Love is War season 2! The series’ official Twitter account has unveiled a new trailer that gives us a glimpse of exciting scenes in the new season as well as the new characters. Check out the trailer here!
Two new cast members have been revealed last December. Miyu Tomita, who voiced Rizu Ogata in We Never Learn: BOKUBEN is cast as Miko Iino, the student council auditor and Ishigami’s classmate since middle school. Rina Hidaka, who voiced Silica in Sword Art Online, will be voicing Kobachi Osaragi, a close friend of Miko.
The new season will feature the original staff, such as director Mamoru Hatakeyama, script supervisor Yasuhiro Nakanishi, character designer Yuko Yahiro, and composer Kei Haneoka. Main cast members Aoi Koga, Makoto Furukawa, Konomi Kohara, and Ryota Suzuki are set to reprise their roles as Kaguya Shinomiya, Miyuki Shirogane, Chika Fujiwara, and Yuu Ishigami respectively. The new season is set for an April 11 premiere.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War (or known in Japan as Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai - Tensai-tachi no Ren'ai Zunousen, literally, "Kaguya Wants to be Confessed to: The Geniuses' War of Love and Brains") is a seinen manga series written and illustrated by Aka Akasaka. A1 Pictures adapted the series into a 12-episode TV anime, which aired from January to March 2019. A live-action movie was also released in Japan last September, earning a total of 2 billion yen so far. The English licensing rights to the series is held by Viz Media, who describes the manga’s story as such:
”All's fair when love is war!
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!”
