Preliminary Spoiler
Jun 24, 2022
*Potential spoilers below

Love is complicated, scary, fleeting, but certainly not war. For Kaguya and Miyuki, though, it is. For months upon months, they have played this game where whoever confesses first loses, having lots of fun along the way, but when faced with a time constraint, was all this “war” a waste of time? Love doesn’t always wait for us, people come and go, and that’s why people must take advantage of every opportunity to be with those they love.

Watching this third season of Kaguya-sama was like watching the last act of a play, or listening to the last verse of a song. It felt ...

Just to be clear, this is a series that deserves the title of ‘Modern Classic’

Even before the release of the 3rd Season, Kaguya-Sama had already dominated the anime scene. If you’re an anime fan, you probably already encountered Kaguya-Sama in one way or another on social media. Having some of the best comedy, drama and animation in the medium, Kaguya-Sama is one of the pillars of the Slice of Life genre. And with the release of Kaguya-Sama: Love is War - Ultra Romantic, the series has developed into and embodied the pinnacle of RomCom Slice of Life. Having two seasons of build up, the ...

Season 1 was good

Season 2 was great

But Season 3 was Ultra Average or Cliched

“My heart has surrendered” -Airi Suzuki

With each passing season, Kaguya-sama has remained one of the absolute best anime of this past half-decade. As a comedy, it is uproarious, however, part of why it succeeds so above and beyond is due to being one of the most visually inventive and passionately-driven manga adaptations, perhaps ever. A-1 Pictures’ current flagship non-SAO title is a three-time triumph, with this latest series pushing everything to new heights while ratcheting up so much of last season’s drama to create one of the most electrifying binging experiences this side of Mawaru Penguindrum!

For the 5th time in a row, it bears repeating ...

What’s that meme about insanity? Like how the definition of “insanity” is doing the exact same thing over and over again expecting a different result? I’m not particularly up to date on internet humor, so I may very well be misremembering it, but either way, I’m definitely going insane. The universe keeps trying to tell me no one wants to hear me rag on this show, and I keep refusing to listen. The show is far too beloved at this point, and the only people still watching it are fans who have been watching since season one and now have a vested interest in being ...

Ha Ha Ha.

What do you think is better?
Option a: create a movie of 2 and a half hours so that it can have all the necessary drama, storytelling and conclusion.
Option b: Make 13 eps of repulsive garbage until the last few episodes, where basically everything important happens.

It looks like they went with option b. Good job.

To cut the crap this is an ok love story. The art is great and music is decent. Enjoyment was not that good, but still ok. Characters also.
However, wasting of time is 10/10. I think every main title should look up to this. Create as many meaningless episodes just to ...

Going into Season 3 of Kaguya-sama I already had high hopes for it to live up to the hype. Both of the previous seasons are 10/10 in my opinion, and I already knew that "you know what" was happening this season from everyone spoiling it in every single Youtube comment section. The expectations for this season was even higher consider that we had to wait TWICE as long between S2/S3 (taking 2 years to make) compared to S1/S2, which was probably because of the pandemic but it was still something to consider as a fan.

So I had no reason to suspect anything would be wrong ...

Love is war is a good series, i won't deny that but season 3 kinda just flopped it upside down which is weird because i actually think the story is good, it's just that the execution wasn't perfect. Now season 1 and 2 were both perfect examples on how to balance your characters, the main characters (Shinomiya and Shirogane) are both entertaining and get a lot of screentime in the first 2 seasons, but this is also in season 3, the thing is with the main characters is that the side characters also matter a lot. I don't know why but i feel like the ...

Preliminary (6/13 eps)
Let me start by saying that I absolutely loved the first two seasons. I even watched them more than once. I loved all of the jokes and the chemistry between the characters.

I am forced to write this review while the show is still running, because from all of the reviews I have seen I feel like I am the only one who thinks this season is significantly weaker than the previous two. I think so far it is a long way from being a 8-10, but I hope it gets better since there is still a halfway to go.

From the first 6 and a half ...

I really don't know what all the hype is about and to me it makes absolutely no sense that people are judging this show based on their experience with reading the manga..

To me, this entire show, except for maybe the last 3-4 episodes, just feels like fillers. Little story arcs that end as fast as they have begun. I find this show really bland and boring, the characters do not resonate with me at all, Kaguya is super annoying and the rest of the characters are just really uninteresting and/or forgettable.

I do like myself a good rom-com from time to time, but this is definitely ...

Season 3 of two people too passive and prideful so each is hoping the other will make the first move.

This joke was wearing thin by season two and the writing got worse and worse with character inconsistency and repeated gags.

Season three is that BUT throw in cringe, out-dated pop culture references and annoying sounds.

The show went from bad to barely watchable. The only reason I'm not lowering the score is because (3) is my lowest for a bad show that is basically harmless and inoffensive.

Plot/Story = 2/10

The writing is so bad now that most episodes are just re-run jokes from season one ...

I'm confused, I knew this show was good but what in the hell is it doing with a 9.15? I've seem some recency bias before but this is on a whole another level. Kaguya was a solid 6-7/10 rom com for me so seeing these reviews/ratings caught me off guard. Even when Season 1 and 2 concluded the overhyping wasn't this bad. I see people in the comments calling this the best rom com ever made which baffles me as well. Anyways, lets begin.

Story: 6

The story... exists? This show is definitely more on the character side of the entertainment aspect I'll say that. The story ...

"The first to fall in love loses!"

"If I go out with him, I'll probably fall in love!"

Never before have such pretentious phrases been uttered unironically...wait, this is anime. Never mind, happens all the time.

This season was by and large a massive disappointment. I have always believed 'Love is War' to be an overrated romcom, but nevertheless found the first two seasons serviceably decent. You can check my profile, if you don't believe me: I gave the first two seasons a 6/10. Although drenched in romantic tropes I despise, the comedy was consistent and the execution was at a very high level.

And yet this season falls ...

Yet another overrated show..

This one definitely rises above the average romcom anime .The main characters are up to the task ,some of the supported characters are adequate and a few others completely irrelevant .Season 1 and 2 were more than fine and most of the time it felt like the characters were in a battlefield as the title of the show indicates.
I wasn't planning to watch season 3 but then I saw this anime climbing to rank 1 so I thought "Oh something extraordinary must have happened there ,let's watch it".
Well ,nope.
Season 3 is taking place in a full cliched set up ...

Preliminary (3/13 eps)
Love is War is back, and manga readers know that this season is the one to behold.

The first episode starts off with the comedy we've all come to know and love from this series, except it's dialed up and more absurd than we've ever seen it before. Animation is still clean and easy on the eyes as usual, and the unique stylization this show uses is still at play and in full force. The characters, the obvious highlight of this show, are still their interesting selves, and the interactions they have with one another feel natural and remain at ...

Look how they massacred my boy.

I don't want to talk about it but I will.

I understand why they did what they did but isn't there any other way???

The first episodes I was really hoping for another damn great opening. Like how they did with the first two seasons. But it wasn't in any way great. But I dismissed it, give them a chance. So I did, which only got me disappointed. They focused so much on the story and in exchange the humor was lost. And somehow watching it feels like it's just like all the other anime and not as unique as it once ...

A long awaited season. One of the most anticipated anime seasons by most viewers, myself included. The cast of characters remains virtually unchanged. The author's idea must have been exhausted, because a copy of the comedy elements used in previous seasons is presented to us and we are asked to laugh at them.

Unfortunately, they try to keep us entertained by putting the same jokes they have made many times before. Although it is currently the highest rated anime, it cannot even bring an innovation compared to other seasons. The series doesn't even give a reason to watch it other than Ishigami, who is the only ...

I will be honest I read the manga already as i was frustrated and too furious to know when the main characters gonna end up together ! So the ending in the anime was expected yet not so ! The ending felt like this is the end of the anime series which is not good at all as now the fun part starts ! Hope it's gets another season ! I am actually excited for it ! The previous two seasons where too Disappointing for me ! The story just focused more on side characters and slice of life ! That is till the third ...

So, Let's start off with the things that i liked. the art is absolutely gorgeous and the animation is buttery smooth, i don't expect anything less from A-1 Pictures i also quite enjoyed the comedy

Oh yeah, the comedy basically carried this season and i would even go as far as to say the comedy and animation carries the entire anime the story, as a romance, is quite lackluster. For some reason the writers decided that it would be a good idea to take on a more serious tone towards the end in an comedy-centric anime, which results in the most ...

THANKS to A-1 Pictures and Mamoru Hatakeyama's team for giving us one of the best adaptations, and thanks to the author for writing one of the best romantic comedies.

On the technical side, everything is absolutely well thought out, from the carefully chosen soundtrack for each scene to the animation and staging of the important scenes. The lighting and shadow effects are probably the most elaborate I've ever seen in an animated series. The series is full of pop culture references and it's absolutely a treat to find them all, from Shawshank Redemption to more obscure things that only fans of 90's Japanese romance series know ...
