The winter 2019 anime adaptation of the Kaguya-sama: Love is War manga lead to the spring 2020 second season that wrapped up very well for fans. That season left fans with hope for more as it was revealed that a new OVA project will debut in 2021 and that a third season is coming but that was not given any kind of timeframe.

Some of that is starting to come together now as the latest Young Jump magazine has landed and an ad within it revealed that the OVA is scheduled for a DVD release on May 19th, 2021. The OVA is scheduled for three stories in it with the first two being Kaguya-sama Darkness in two parts and the third Kaguya-sama Wants Him to Eat.

Mamoru Hatakeyama directed based on the series composition and supervision by Yasuhiro Nakanishi. Yuuko Yahiro worked on the character designs and A-1 Pictures was behind the animation production.

The English dub for the second season was directed by Morgan Laure based on scripts by Jessica Sluys. The cast includes Aaron Dismuke as Miyuki Shirogane, Alexis Tipton as Kaguya Shinomiya, Amanda Lee as Ai Hayasaka, Austin Tindle as Yū Ishigami, Brandon McInnis as Tsubasa Tanuma, Bryn Apprill as Nagisa Kashiwagi, Heather Walker as Kei Shirogane, Ian Sinclair as Narrator, and Jad Saxton as Chika Fujiwara.

Plot Concept: 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!
