In case you missed it, the final chapter of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War was released this week, and it gave the series a proper finale after its years-long run.

While you’re probably familiar with the TV anime adaptation by A-1 Pictures, the show is based on the manga of the same name by Aka Akasaka.

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

Even before the anime adaptation, the manga was already quite popular, but the anime skyrocketed the series’ popularity.

The anime itself is also a big hit as it is now three seasons long, with an anime movie releasing this December.

Back in June, it was confirmed that the series only have a bit over a dozen chapters left before its end, meaning it was set to end in October or November this year.

Finally, it was announced last week that the series will end in the next chapter.

While the series has ended, it seems that its anime adaption will continue as the movie is set to release soon.
