Kaguya-sama: Love Is War -The First Kiss That Never Ends Takes Place After Season 3
The film, Kaguya-sama: Love Is War -The First Kiss That Never Ends takes place in the aftermath of season 3. The official synopsis reads:
Shuchiin Academy’s student council room, the place where Student Council Vice President Kaguya Shinomiya and President Miyuki Shirogane met. After a long battle in love, these two geniuses communicated their feelings and, at the Hoshin Festival, had their very first kiss. However, there was no clear confession of love. The relationship between these two, who assumed they would be a couple, remains ambiguous. Now, overly conscious of their feelings, they must face the biggest challenge yet: Christmas. It’s Shirogane who wants it to be perfect versus Kaguya who pursues the imperfect situation. This is the very “normal” love story of two geniuses and the first kiss that never ends. Run Time: 90 Minutes
After three years and three seasons of awaiting the first kiss between the two main characters, fans will finally see where Kaguya and Miyuki’s relationship stands, in the first feature-length movie from the series, coming to theaters on Feb. 14, 2023!
