After it was announced a few months back, it was finally confirmed that the Kaguya-sama: Love Is War anime movie will be released in select US cinemas in February 2023.

Alongside the announcement, a trailer for the film was shared online via the Aniplex official YouTube channel.

Kaguya-sama: Love Is War is an anime by A-1 Pictures that’s based on the manga of the same name by Aka Akasaka.

The manga began serialization in Miracle Young Jump in 2015, but it was moved to Weekly Young Jump in March 2016.

The series follows Miyuki Shirogane and Kaguya Shinomiya, the President and Vice President of the elite Shuchiin Academy, respectively.

Miyuki and Kaguya soon develop feelings for each other, but because of their pride, the two refrain from confessing their love.

Instead, they think of increasingly complex schemes to get one another to confess.

In case you missed its reveal, the Kaguya-sama: Love Is War movie was announced back in June, just after the Season 3 finale.

The film is officially entitled Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: First Kiss wa Owaranai (Kaguya-sama: Love Is War: The First Kiss Never Ends in English).

As its title implies, the movie adapts the manga arc of the same name that takes place after the third season.

It was announced recently that the film will first release in Japanese cinemas this December, followed by a TV broadcast.

Kaguya-sama: Love Is War Anime Movie US Release Date

During the recently concluded Anime NYC event, lucky fans got to watch a preview screening of the film, albeit only about one-third or a quarter of it.

While the full film wasn’t shown yet (as production is presumably still ongoing), fans in the US will soon be able to watch it in full as the Kaguya-sama: Love Is War movie will get a cinema release in the US sometime in February 2023.

Given the wording of the announcement, it’s likely that the film will only be released in a limited number of theaters and only for a short time.

This is unlike the recent anime cinema releases in the US which were released in numerous theaters such as One Piece Film: Red and Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.

For those who won’t be able to watch the theater screenings, there’s a chance that the film will be released on streaming services soon.

After all, it will be broadcast on TV in Japan, though it remains to be seen if it will be shown as a film or in a TV episode format.
