As expected, the “big announcement” was about the much-awaited sequel! During the first film’s first terrestrial broadcasting in Japan last night, it was announced that the second live-action film adaptation of Aka Akasaka’s romantic comedy manga Kaguya-sama: Love Is War is officially set to be released in Japan on August 20, 2021. The first film’s Hayato Kawai will return to the director’s chair and all of the main cast members are confirmed to reprise their roles.
At the same time, the film’s official website posted a video message from its two main cast – Kanna Hashimoto (Kaguya Shinomiya) and Sho Hirano (Miyuki Shirogane).
Two: “A Happy New Year!”
