The official website of the Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen (Kaguya-sama: Love is War) anime series announced a second season for Aka Akasaka's romantic comedy manga on Saturday. The new season will air under the title Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai? Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen.

Synopsis
At the renowned Shuchiin Academy, Miyuki Shirogane and Kaguya Shinomiya are the student body's top representatives. Ranked the top student in the nation and respected by peers and mentors alike, Miyuki serves as the student council president. Alongside him, the vice president Kaguya—eldest daughter of the wealthy Shinomiya family—excels in every field imaginable. They are the envy of the entire student body, regarded as the perfect couple.

However, despite both having already developed feelings for the other, neither are willing to admit them. The first to confess loses, will be looked down upon, and will be considered the lesser. With their honor and pride at stake, Miyuki and Kaguya are both equally determined to be the one to emerge victorious on the battlefield of love! [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Returning staff members for the second season include director Shinichi Omata (Mamoru Hatakeyama), series composer Yasuhiro Nakanishi, character designer Yuuko Yahiro, music composer Kei Haneoka, and animation studio A-1 Pictures. The four lead cast members will also reprise their roles.

Akasaka launched the manga in Miracle Jump magazine in May 2015, which subsequently switched to Young Jump in March 2016. Shueisha published the 16th volume on September 19. Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai has a cumulative 8 million copies of its compiled volumes in circulation.

A-1 Pictures produced the first anime season in Winter 2019, roughly adapting the first five volumes. Aniplex of America licensed the anime and streamed it on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu.

VIZ Media licensed the main series in English under its Shonen Jump imprint in February 2018 and published the tenth volume on September 3. The 11th volumes is scheduled for a November 5 release.

Shinta Sakayama (Hitsugi no Chaika) launched the Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Doujin-ban spin-off in June 2018. A second spin-off by G3 Ida, Kaguya-sama wo Kataritai, began its serialization in Young Jump last July. Shueisha shipped the second and first volume of the spin-offs on March 19, respectively.

A live-action film adaptation opened in Japan on September 6, starring Shou Hirano (Ninjani Sanjo! Mirai e no Tatakai) as Miyuki Shirogane and Kanna Hashimoto (Gintama) as Kaguya Shinomiya.

Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai ranked first in the Comics category at the 3rd Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Taisho in August 2017, a joint award by Kadokawa's Da Vinci literature magazine and streaming platform Niconico.

Super Duper Hyped for this! Easily my favourite show of the year so far and I'm just so glad I decided to wait patiently instead of binge-ing the manga right away!

Absolutely enthralled today thanks to this news! I'm really hoping it'll air sometime around Winter 2020 but chances are it'll most likely air later in Summer or Fall but still bloody hyped for this!

2020 keeps getting better!

Awesome PV and Key Visual right there too, I seriously can't fudging wait for this!

On another note, I'm looking forward to more announcement of Re:Zero Season 2 later today in the live broadcast!

Oh more news on Re:Zero S2 as well today? When is this live broadcast?

I have to agree that 2020 is shaping up to be just as good or even better than 2019 at this rate. So thrilled for so many sequels coming out!

No confirmation on more news though, it's just what most are speculating.

Here's link so you can put a reminder on if you want. It'll begin in just an hour and a half from now.

In case you aren't aware of other live streams:

1) Here's one that's currently on at the moment (Goblin Slayer currently): https://youtu.be/WoQfGAbHsc4
2) Fantasia Bunko early tomorrow (in 14 hours): https://youtu.be/4enYGCSeM5M

Edit: I'm sorry I didn't the last bit of your message.

2020 is indeed looking even better than 2019 now!

About time by now. I mean, seriously, what reason would there be to not further adapt a successful manga and anime adaptation? Even the team on a message said that they enjoyed making it.

I heard that the manga gets a shift in tone around this point in the anime, so I'm expecting this season to be better than the first season.

I'm so unbelievably happy for these news.
After the extremely successful LA I expected them to wait out its run to announce anything further for the IP but to suddenly wake up only to see S2 announced just like that, nothing could've prepared me for it.

And most importantly....Hatakeyama & the crew are back for it. They are the reason why they were able to take an already successful and critically acclaimed manga & elevate it to new heights in a completely new medium. I'm pumped.

One of the series where it was pretty much given that S2 would come around sooner or later. Still gotta say that I'm pleasantly surprised because I didn't have this on my radar at all lately.
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

Not surprising but took long enough, I keep bitching but I think this needs to be 2 cour or things are gonna be very awkward with how they may chose to adapt things cause they REALLY cant skip stuff this time, s1 had the benefit of the first 10 chapters being negligible and the manga being alot simpler back then, pretty much right after fireworks is when the series really starts having a stronger continuity, still got a fair amount of one off moments but still way harder to skip stuff......also i just dont want them to skip stuff theres like 2 unfunny chapters in the 165+ chapters and ongoing we got now.

And fucking finally fanart of the main cast is gonna stop looking so incomplete. Wonder whose gonna voice Iino, going off of the other characters its probably gonna be a relatively new actress I imagine?

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

Nice! I figured this was going to get more but it's nice to see it officially happening. Season 1 really surprised me. At first I thought it wasn't going to be very good but it just kept getting better.
