“Tsundere” is a Japanese term used for describing a character who is initially very cold and hostile to the person he/she loves but later warms up to them. Most anime revolve around a Tsundere girl who hates the fact that she in love with some guy but ‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’ takes a rather different approach towards this and portrays two characters who are both in love but their biggest problem is that they’re both Tsundere; this ensues more of a battle between them. The ideas that this anime portrays can all sound dumb and boring — “Love is war” is the main theme. But surprisingly, every single episode is more entertaining than the previous one and the anime just blows your mind with its perfect execution.
A-1 Pictures, known for other anime like ‘Sword Art Online‘ and ‘Fairy Tail‘, does a surprisingly good job with the comedic scenes of the anime. The animations quality is impressive and remains consistent throughout the show. This, along with fantastic dialogues and brilliant directing will make you crack up throughout its runtime. Overall, ‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’ is fast-paced, exciting, downright hilarious and is totally binge-worthy. What more can you ask for?
Kaguya-sama: Love is War Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’ season 1 premiered on January 12, 2019 and went on till March 20, 2019. During this span, it aired a total of 12 episodes with each one of them being 25 minutes long. Undoubtedly, the anime has gained a lot of popularity in a very short span and from its ratings on most platforms, it is clear that most viewers are receiving it really well.
Now, most slice-of-life anime, no matter how good they are, don’t usually last longer than 12-13 episodes except for a few like ‘Toradora!‘. Even the ending of ‘Kaguya-sama: Love is War’ is quite conclusive but at the same time, it also leaves some room for the possibilities of season 2. If we look at the studio that is behind the anime, A-1 Pictures usually never leaves an anime undone and somehow does find its way back to most of its popular shows. So that seems to be in favor of the anime’s renewal.
And since ‘Kaguya Sama’ managed to be one of the best anime of 2019, its second season has already been confirmed and is slated for a release in April 2020.

Most high school relationships are pretty simple and direct but this one here is one battlefield where pride, honor and a lot more is at stake. Both of them use various schemes to make the other one confess and in the end, one of them will have to give in and lose the battle but at the same time, to win something much greater.
