Considered a genius due to having the highest grades in the country, Miyuki Shirogane leads the prestigious Shuchiin Academy's student council as its president, working alongside the beautiful and wealthy vice president Kaguya Shinomiya. The two are often regarded as the perfect couple by students despite them not being in any sort of romantic relationship.

However, the truth is that after spending so much time together, the two have developed feelings for one another; unfortunately, neither is willing to confess, as doing so would be a sign of weakness. With their pride as elite students on the line, Miyuki and Kaguya embark on a quest to do whatever is necessary to get a confession out of the other. Through their daily antics, the battle of love begins!

What is your favourite battle of wits story? The classic Light vs L? Maybe the JoJo fights? For me the winner is clearly Miyuki vs Kaguya!

Kaguya Wants to be Confessed To completely caught me by surprise with a hilarious and adorable romantic comedy based on mindgames between the two main characters with the objective of making the other confess his/her feelings, and why? Because they believe that the one that confesses will become the submissive part in the relationship, and their pride makes them refuse to be that one.

The chapters are episodic and feature a different battle in their war for love, everything that happens read more

I like to call this the Death Note of school romantic comedies. If Death Note ever made you laugh out loud (on purpose).

This manga is a breath of fresh air, as usually romcom manga start out with them meeting and being put into an awkward more than friends but less than lovers scenario, or some misunderstanding happens and all the characters are pissed at each other. Not with Kaguya Wants to be Confessed To, in this manga both main characters are too proud and scared to confess, so they try and bait each other into revealing their feelings.

There are a lot of read more

Kaguya Wants To Be Confessed To is basically just the battles from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, except the goal is not "I have to defeat the enemy and his/her Stand!", it's "I have to make him/her confess to me!".

Kaguya Wants To Be Confessed to is a comedy/romance manga, that bases most of its humor off the over-the-top styles of action in shounen manga. Saying something really minor dramatically! Reciting an entire paragraph in one's mind in just a milisecond!

I actually didn't go into this series expecting to really like it - I'm not really a romance person, y'know? But I must say after giving read more

I, for some reason (most probably to fill the void created by my own loneliness TT TT) I end up reading a lot of shoujo manga. For me shoujo romance manga is a guilty pleasure and a great mystery... A mystery because, I don't think that there is any other genre, form of art or literature that manages to be as unmemorable as most of the shoujo romance manga on the market does. I hate reading ongoing shoujo manga because, especially if is monthly, I manage to forget most of what it is about until the next chapter comes up... In fact if I forget read more
