Last week, my prediction for Kaguya-sama: Love is War Chapter 246 was either a relationship update for Iino and Ishigami, or an update on Kaguya's situation. As it turns out, we got both. And how!
The seinen manga by Aka Akasaka is definitely looking like it's going to wrap up soon. Miyuki's imminent move to America and the forthcoming graduation means the end of an era for the student council with only Iino, and potentially Ishigami being truly likely to stay on.
After the bomb Kaguya dropped in the last pages, we can't wait to find out more. If you feel the same, keep reading! In the sections below, you'll find our handy guide to Kaguya-Sama Love Is War Chapter 246, including the newest chapter's release date and time, so that you can catch up with the latest updates first!
Kaguya-Sama: Love is War Chapter 246 Recap
If the fact that Iino invited Ishigami in her room had you thinking they would at least kiss, think again. For the time being, they only hold hands, and Iino is actually very matter-of-fact about it. Ishigami is shocked by her ability to calmly talk about the student council's future while holding hands with him. As for himself, he can barely concentrate.
Iino thinks she'll stay on and become the Student President, as she's always dreamed. At the same time, she realizes that the values she associated it all with as a child are largely artificial.
As the conversation goes on and on, Ishigami starts to wonder if Iino's behavior even shows that she has feelings for him. But when Iino leans on him, admitting her need for love and support, there's little doubt left. In many ways, I liked how awkward and yet organic this first romantic moment was. Iino is so comfortable with Ishigami that holding hands just feels so natural she doesn't need to make a huge deal out of it, which is refreshing.
The atmosphere is ruined for good, however, when Ishigami receives a phone call. Kaguya finally breaks her silence, asking them to tell Miyuki that she's dropping out. But why? After this cliffhanger, chapter 247 can't come fast enough!
Kaguya-Sama: Love is War Chapter 246 Release Date

Kaguya-Sama: Love is War Chapter 247 Spoilers
At the time of writing, there are no spoilers or official summaries for Kaguya-sama: Love Is War Chapter 247 as it's only been a day since the newest chapter was released.
Spoilers, such as raw scans, are usually available 2-3 days before the release date, so we will let you know if any additional information becomes available in the meantime. If any raw scans come up, this should be around Monday or Tuesday and we'll make sure to let you know of possible spoilers if they become available.
We expect chapter 247 to be concerned with the news that Kaguya is dropping out. Surely, she wouldn't have made that decision unless she was certain that her presence would put her friends in danger. But what about her? Where is she, and what exactly is wrong with her? Hopefully, the next chapter will come on time, with answers!
