Kaguya-sama: Love is War has wrapped up its third season with the rest of the anime lineup set for Spring 2022, but it has announced that the franchise will return with its first-ever anime film! The original manga franchise by Aka Akasaka has been a huge success since it first debuted with not only three seasons of an anime but also a live-action feature film adaptation that was also released in Japan. As the third season hit a potential breakpoint, the franchise also revealed that there are already plans to continue the anime in some way, but they were timid about what this new project would entail.

Following previous reports that suggested the anime franchise would proceed with its first anime film, Kaguya-sama: Love is war has actually confirmed to be working on a new film. This new film will be subtitled The Kiss That Never Ends, which is the next major arc to the ultra-romantic saga that starred during the events of Season 3. It’s a movie-worthy transition arc that could serve as the grand finale for the anime should the team behind the series decide to end it all with this big new movie.

This was announced with the release of Kadokawa’s next issue of Newtype magazine (as seen on the official Twitter account for the series above). Kaguya-sama: Love is War – The Kiss That Never Ends will pick up this arc of ten chapters from the original manga series by Aka Akasaka. It’s yet to be announced when this new film will be released, and no details on potential collaborators or cast returns have been announced at this time either. The manga version of the arc ends just before some intense stuff begins, so there’s room to continue with a fourth season if that’s the plan.

With the series’ original manga run also reportedly coming to an end, an anime film could serve as the grand finale to the adaptation, should that be the plan. If not, there’s still more to discover from the franchise, as Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane only scratch the surface of their budding relationship, which can be seen at the end of Season 3. But what do you think? What do you think of Kaguya-sama: Love is War getting its own movie? Let us know your thoughts on this in the comments!
