In this article, we are going to tell you everything you need to know about a possible fourth season of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War.
The fourth season of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War still hasn’t been confirmed yet. The third season premiered only several days ago, and it is still ongoing, which is why we don’t know much about its future. Still, Kaguya-sama: Love Is War is a very popular series and based on all the known facts, a fourth season is highly probable. We just don’t know when.
The rest of this article is going to bring you all the known and unknown information related to ta potential season four of Kaguya-sama: Love is War. You’re going to find out about its release date, whether there is a trailer, what the story could be about, the basic cast information, and much more about this popular anime series.
An anime television series adaptation of the Kaguya-sama: Love Is War manga was initially announced by Shūeisha in June 2018. It was directed by Mamoru Hatakeyama and written by Yasuhiro Nakanishi at animation studio A-1 Pictures; Yūko Yahiro provided character designers, while Jin Aketagawa served as sound director, and Kei Haneoka composed the series’ soundtrack.
The narration of the series was entrusted to Yutaka Aoyama. The series was made up of twelve 25-minute episodes spread across six Blu-ray/DVD boxes. It aired in Japan between January 12 and March 30, 2019 on Tokyo MX, BS11, GTV, and GYT, and later on MBS, CTV, and TVN. Shūeisha revealed, at the Young Jump Bunkasa event on October 19, 2019, that the production of a second season under the title Kaguya-sama wa kokurasetai?: Tensai-tachi no renai zunōsen had begun.
The production team remained the same, and the seiyū reprised their roles from the first season as well. It originally aired between April 11 and June 27, 2020 on Tokyo MX, GTV, GYT, and BS11, and later on TeNY and MBS. This second season was composed of 12 episodes of 25 minutes divided into six Blu-ray/DVD boxes, like the first one.
During a presentation that took place on October 25, 2020, the production of an OVA and a third season were announced; the three special episodes were planned along with the special edition of the 22nd volume of the manga, which was released on May 19, 2021. The third season kept the same production team and the same cast.
The series has been airing since April 9, 2022 under the name Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai -Ultra Romantic- on Tokyo MX, BS11, Gunma TV, and Tochigi TV and later on MBS, RKB, and TeNY.
Wakanim and Crunchyroll own the rights to broadcast the series in French-speaking countries under the title Kaguya-sama: Love is War; they also own the rights for the second season under the title Kaguya-sama:
Love is War?; as well as third season rights under the title Kaguya-sama: -Ultra Romantic-. Wakanim also broadcasts both seasons in the Nordic countries with English subtitles, in German-speaking countries in German, and in other European territories in Russian.
Aniplex of America owns the license for the franchise, whose first season is distributed between Crunchyroll, Hulu, and FunimationNow, and is broadcast in America, Australia, New Zealand, and the British Isles; Funimation exclusively broadcasted the second season with English subtitles and in English dubbed format in North America and the British Isles, but also in Mexico and Brazil. In Australia and New Zealand, the series is also licensed by AnimeLab.
The bilibili platform broadcasted the two seasons of the series in China. Muse Communication holds the license for both seasons in Southeast Asia.
Now, in light of all of this, where does this leave us with a potential fourth season? Kaguya-sama: Love Is War is, without a doubt, very popular, and there definitely is a lot of unadapted material that can be made into an anime series. Considering all of this, Kaguya-sama: Love Is War‘s future seems very bright in terms of a renewal.
The original manga series is, as we have said, quite popular, and there is absolutely no doubt that the creators behind the concept want it to continue even further; if we combine this with the fact that the third season premiered only recently and is still ongoing, it makes us very hopeful. In any case, the earliest we could see a potential second season is 2024, but we’d have to get some confirmation on the future during 2022 or 2023.
You now know all the facts and our thoughts related to Kaguya-sama: Love Is War Season 4, which means that you’ve probably deduced for yourselves that there is no trailer for the fourth season of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War. This is because we do not know whether there will even be a fourth season of the show, which means that a trailer might not appear at all. But, based on all the information we have, this does not seem like a likely outcome.
As we have said, Kaguya-sama: Love Is War is a very likely candidate for a return. The original manga is still ongoing and is very popular, as is the anime adaptation, which is now in its third season. Still, despite all of that, we have to wait and see whether there are actual plans for a continuation before we can make a proper prediction. Be that as it may, Kaguya-sama: Love Is War is currently on track with its third season, so we’ll have to wait and see how that ends to make any proper prediction.
Taking into account everything we’ve said, a trailer for Kaguya-sama: Love Is War Season 4 is unlikely to come out this or the next year. The earliest we could see a trailer is late 2023 or in 2024, but we would have to get confirmation of a fourth season sometime during 2022 or 2023 for that to happen.
At this moment, we do not know which parts of the manga series will be adapted in the potential Season 4 of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War. Namely, due to a lack of information in general, we have absolutely no clue how far the fourth season might go, if it even happens; in fact, we don’t even know how much of the series will be adapted in the current (third) season; we’ll have to wait for it to end before we make a full prediction for season four. The only thing we know for sure is that it will continue the adventure of the show’s protagonists. What follows is a general overview of the show’s plot.
The Shūchiin Academy is a prestigious school where the future elite of the country, almost exclusively children of the wealthy, continue their studies. Within the High School Student Council, the two brilliant role models of the academy, Vice President Kaguya Shinomiya and the President – from a modest background – Miyuki Shirogane, conceive of love in a particular way: they are attracted to each other, but they are unable to confess their feelings due to their excessive pride, even if a semester has passed.
Considering the correlation between inequality of love interest and relationship of domination in a relationship of this ilk, they each conclude from it that the one of the two who would confess first will become the “loser” of the couple and will inevitably come to be submitted by the other. Thus begins their daily life filled with various plots and other stratagems to force the other to confess their feelings.
It’s still too early for us to discuss a potential fourth season of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War in terms of cast and characters, simply because we do not know whether there will even be a fourth season. But, seeing how we know that the series is going to have a more-or-less fixed cast, we really don’t expect to see too many changes in the structure of season four, if it ever happens. Now, the main characters that have appeared in season one, likely to return for a fourth season, include:
At this moment, as expected, there is no means of watching Kaguya-sama: Love Is War season four, as there is no season four of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War to watch. The series has, at least in the West, been streamed through Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Funimation, with Netflix also picking the show up for the Asian market. Although we don’t really know, there is nothing to point out that this would change with a potential fourth season, if it happens in the future.
The future of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War is, as of this moment, unknown. At this moment, we don’t really know anything about a fourth season, so whether we’ll be seeing the fifth season or not is still unknown. The series has done impressively well, and since the current season definitely won’t adapt the whole manga, which is still ongoing, by the way, that is definitely a good sign for fans of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War, but we are going to have to wait and see how the situation with season four evolves to know more about a potential season five. However, it is likely from this perspective.
