What Is Kaguya-sama: Love Is War - The First Kiss Never Ends About?

When Kaguya and Miyuki got together, there was a major shift in the romance anime and manga, but their story doesn't end there.

The ending of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War came out recently after several volumes of the highly anticipated love confession. But are Kaguya and Miyuki actually dating now?

This is the question that the upcoming movie, Kaguya-sama: Love Is War - The First Kiss Never Ends, sets out to answer.

The official website of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War, which includes all the up-to-date information about the series, has shared the following details about the movie's plot:

Vice-president Shinomiya Kaguya and student council president Miyuki Shirogane met at Shuchiin Academy's student council.
After a long love battle, the two geniuses communicated their feelings to each other and kissed for the first time.
However, they have not reached a clear confession yet, and the relationship between the two, who were thought to be lovers, remains ambiguous, and they come to Christmas with a stronger awareness of each other.
Shirogane "wants to be perfect" and Kaguya seeks to be "not perfect." This is a very "ordinary" love story by geniuses. The first kiss never ends.

The movie will adapt the latter part of Volume 14 of the manga. In the chapters following the dual confession at the cultural festival, Kaguya and Miyuki spend some time trying to make sense of their relationship.

As notoriously bad communicators, the two haven't spoken much after their first kiss, causing them to wonder where they stand, and if they can consider themselves a couple.

The movie is gearing up to resolve this original miscommunication, with the hope that the kiss will finally result in a relationship.

Kaguya-sama: Love Is War - The First Kiss Never Ends is being produced by A-1 Pictures, as was the case with the previous seasons.

The studio is home to many other amazing works, including 86, Black Butler, Sword Art Online, and From the New World.

No cast changes have been announced. This means the cast is likely the same, with Aoi Koga (Komi from Komi Can't Communicate) and Makoto Furukawa (Shaddiq Zenelli from Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury) as Kaguya and Miyuki, respectively.

Other voice actors might include Konomi Kohara (Mina from Teasing Master Takagi-san) as Chika Fujiwara, Ryota Suzuki (Bisco Akaboshi from Sabicui Bisco) as Yu Ishigami, and Miyu Tomita (Akari Seto from Otherside Picnic) as Miko Iino.

Given the show's popularity, an English dubbed version with the same English voice cast as before is also very likely.

Kaguya-sama: Love Is War - The First Kiss Never Ends Trailer

To celebrate the upcoming theater release of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War - The First Kiss Never Ends, Crunchyroll has released an official trailer!

In it, we see the students preparing to celebrate Christmas. But Kaguya and Miyuki have entirely different preoccupations.

Kaguya might have loved her first kiss with Miyuki, but her inexperience and pride make it tricky for her to see herself as someone's girlfriend.

Acting cute and romantic doesn't seem to agree with her -- a fact visualized by her turning into a chibi character for a bit!
