Romantic comedies are one of the safest formulas to success. We’ve had so many romantic comedies in the past few decades and yet we can never have them enough. You can turn to a romantic comedy, no matter what your mood is. It helps you brighten your mood when you’re feeling low and lets you celebrate your happy moments whenever you feel like it.
Kaguya-sama: Love Is War is one such anime that presents love from an entirely new perspective. The story revolves around two youngsters who do feel romantically for each other. However, they refrain from confessing their love for each other for the sake of their egos. The story unfolds as they play different tricks on each other to make the other confess their love first.
We’ve had enough love stories about “classic love” and “compromises”. It is about time we had something that encompasses the issues of modern-day love stories. Fans of the show have been waiting for the release of the second season of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War.

Kaguya Sama: Love is War is a Japanese anime series based on the manga entitled – Kaguya Sama: Love is War written and illustrated by Aka Akasaka. The series follows the story of two teen intellectuals in high school who work as acquaintances in the Shuchi’in Academy’s student council.
The intellectuals are Miyuki Shirogane – the president of the student council who excels in studies and always manages to get the highest score in the whole school and his vice president – Kaguya Shinomiya, the daughter of the owner of the Shinomiya group which has a total worth of a hundred trillion yen. While Kaguya is an ideal young lady in her teens with fairly good looks and great intellect, president Miyuki also possesses a great personality followed by good looks.
The whole school staff and the children see them as a match made in the heavens and made for each other thinking that they are dating but the things aren’t the way they look. Both the parties fairly like each other but have great egos that stop them from confessing. The principle both the parties follow is that in a relationship there is always a lover and the one being loved, the lover always loses, confession means losing, or to sum up in short, Love is War.
The cast also includes a very cheerful and lovely secretary named Chika Fujiwara and the student council’s treasurer Yu Ishigami who is a certified otaku with a fairly negligible love life. The story continues with both Shinomiya and Shirogane playing tricks on each other to get a confession and win but it never goes as planned.
