Aka Akasaka’s Kaguya-sama: Love is War manga is getting its own live-action adaptation. It will star Shou Hirano as Miyuki Shirogane and Kanna Hashimoto as Kaguya Shinomiya. And now, they have announced that student council treasurer, Yuu Ishigami, is also joining the cast! Hayato Sano, who recently played Tsuttsun in the live-action 3D Kanojo Real Girl, will be playing the anti-social genius.
So yeah, we already have treasurer Ishigami, BUT WHERE IS CHIKA?! WHERE IS OUR MEME-INDUCING DANCING GIRL?!
The movie will premiere on September 6, 2019. Here’s how Viz Media describes the manga’s story:
All’s fair when love is war!
Two geniuses. Two brains. Two hearts. One battle. Who will confess their love first…?!
Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane are two geniuses who stand atop their prestigious academy’s student council, making them the elite among elite. But it’s lonely at the top and each has fallen for the other. There’s just one huge problem standing in the way of lovey-dovey bliss—they’re both too prideful to be the first to confess their romantic feelings and thus become the “loser” in the competition of love! And so begins their daily schemes to force the other to confess first!
