Fans of “Kaguya-sama: Love is War” have been in the dark about when they’ll learn more about the rom-com-style anime’s developing relationships, just like the main characters.
According to Anime News Network, “Kaguya-sama: Love is War” is based on the best-selling manga of the same name, which was ninth on the list of Japan’s top-selling volumes in 2019. Since then, the show has been a crossover smash with viewers in both Japan and the United States. The series’ first and second seasons, which dramatize Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane’s courtship through epic cartoon fights of emotion, have been awarded by Crunchyroll’s Anime Awards event, with Season 2 winning Best Comedy in 2021.
Season 3 appeared to be a foregone conclusion for fans of the program, given the immense popularity of the source material, the anime’s continual critical acclaim, and the amount of story left in the epic. While A-1 Pictures has announced that more episodes will be released, fans are unsure when they may expect a sequel. The following information about “Kaguya-sama: Love is War” Season 3’s release date, cast, and the plot is provided for viewers.
When is the release date of Kaguya-sama: Love is War Season 3?
Season 3 of “Kaguya-sama: Love is War” has been confirmed by Funimation for October 25, 2020, according to the official Twitter account for the series. However, there have been no updates since then, so anyone hoping to learn when the new episodes will air will have to rely on educated guesswork.
The announcement of a “Kaguya-sama: Love is War” anime was initially reported in May 2018 by Anime News Network. No release date was specified, as was the case with the Season 3 announcement, despite the fact that the show premiered seven months later, in June 2019. Season 2 premiered in Japan in April 2020, according to Anime News Network.
However, seven months have passed since the show’s announcement on October 25, 2020, and the studio has yet to provide an update on its status. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to say how the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the development of “Kaguya-sama: Love is War,” but the show could be on the way in the fall or winter of 2021. “Kaguya-sama: Love is War,” Season 3 is expected as released on 27, July 2022.
Who will be in the cast of Kaguya-sama: Love is War Season 3?
While fans have no way of knowing what is causing the third season’s delays, some Reddit users have speculated that it could be due to the show’s devotion to using the same voice actors. Fans should have a solid notion of who will appear in “Kaguya-sama: Love is War” Season 3 if the series has slowed down production to ensure that all of the characters are voiced by the same performers.
The main character Kaguya will be voiced by Alexis Tipton, while her romantic interest and occasional opponent, Miyuki, will be performed by Aaron Dismuke if the show waits until all of the same actors are available to dub the current season. Jad Saxton will reprise his role as Kaguya’s associate Chika, while Austin Tindle will reprise his role as Yu, the reclusive underclassman with a striking emo hairstyle.
Amanda Lee, who also acts as the singer AmaLee, may repeat her role as Kaguya’s long-time personal assistant Ai, while Bryn Apprill will most likely reprise her role as her personal confidant Nagisa. Ian Sinclair, who plays the show’s narrator, and Brandon McInnis, who plays Tsubasa, also known as Kashiwagi’s lover, round out the planned English dub cast.
What will the plot of Kaguya-sama: Love is War Season 3 be about?
While “Kaguya-sama: Love is War” stays mostly true to the original manga, it does so in a fashion that follows the story’s chronological events rather than the sequence in which the source material presents them.
This is due to the manga’s numerous flashbacks to specific events in Kaguya’s and other characters’ pasts, which are subsequently incorporated into the anime for a more linear narrative. On Reddit, one fan even made a handy graph showing which chapters are included in which Seasons 1 and 2 episodes.
Chapters 100 and 101, which feature the “Cell Phone Arc,” were the final major sections of the manga that Season 2 addressed. As a result, fans may expect to see events like Chapter 105’s midterm examinations, Chapter 108’s rap battle, and possibly even the multiple Christmas parties featured in Chapters 149 to 156 shown in Season 3, along with plenty of additional storylines thrown in for good measure.
