The live-action movie adaptation of Aka Akasaka’s romantic comedy manga Kaguya-sama: Love Is War is returning with a sequel movie. Its title is Kaguya-sama: Love Is War Final, which serves as the second movie in the series. And now, the staff have unveiled a brand new trailer for this upcoming movie:
The video features the theme song “Koifuru Tsukiyo ni Kimi Omou” by all-male idol group, King & Prince. Of course, the actor who plays Miyuki, Shou Hirano, is a member of the group. The video also features the insert song, “Aitakute” by Ado.
The staff also revealed a brand new key visual as well.
As for the movie itself, it will premiere on August 20, 2021. While Shou Hirano will be reprising his role as Miyuki, the one and only Kanna Hashimoto will also be returning to the film as Kagura. Much of the cast will also be returning to reprise their roles for the sequel film as well.
The first movie premiered last 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!
Netflix is currently streaming the first two seasons of the TV anime.
