RomCom manga series Kaguya-sama: Love is War gets anime adaptation

I heard this from my friend Ezra that his favorite RomCom manga series Kaguya-sama: Love is War will become an anime and I felt compelled to write the news. Revealed at ANN, the manga series Kaguya-sama: Love is War, created by Aka Akasaka, will be getting anime adaptation. You can check out the official website and Twitter to stay updated on any news. The creator also drew this illustration below to commemorate the manga’s green-lit success.

The manga is licensed by Viz Media and here is the following synopsis:

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!

Also, Happy Birthday to Ezra! His birthday was in June 10th and I bet he is proud to hear this news. 🙂

I want to thank bookishnerdygirl for sharing this piece of news in regards to Kingdom Hearts III. Square Enix is releasing a lot of gameplay trailers in E3 and Kingdom Hearts III continues to surprise me every time.

Unlike the previous PS2 game (or you played the HD games on the PS3 or PS4 first), the combat and exploration of the world has expanded and has become immersive. The trailer shows Sora and his friends dressed as pirates and fighting against ships and heartless on the open seas. Sora can also swim underwater and fight more Heartless. The video also shows new and returning characters. Of the returning characters, we have Sora and Riku’s friend Kairi with nice, short hair and the once and former Organization XIII member Axel (his real name is Lea).
