On Thursday, the 26th issue of Shueisha’s Young Jump magazine reported that Kaguya-sama: Love is War (Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai – Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunōsen) manga will go on hiatus until July 1.
The reason for this short break is so that Aka Akasaka, author of the manga, may write the manga’s new act. On July 1, the manga will return in the Young Jump magazine’s 31st edition.
The manga debuted in May 2015 in Shueisha’s Miracle Jump. It was later moved to Young Jump in March 2016. On May 19, the manga’s 22nd volume was released. The english version of the manga is available on VIZ Media.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War’s manga spawned a television anime, which ran for 12 episodes beginning in January 2019. The second season of the television anime, Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai – Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunsen, aired in April 2020. Both seasons of the anime are available on Crunchyroll and Funimation. The anime’s third season is currently under production. Shinichi Omata directed the anime at Studio A-1 Pictures.
The manga also inspired a live-action film, which premiered in Japan in September 2019. The sequel will be released on August 20th. Hayato Kawai directed the live-action movies.
