Is nobody wondering why it's called kaguya sama?,Does that mean that she's the protagonist or just the heroine?

I've been anticipated for this for a looooong while. The stuff that I've seen after the first animated PV is getting me very excited. I really hope that the director and the staff can keep things through and up because this manga is good (I need to catch up sure, but still).

Okay that was pretty good, i liked it! Still Shirogane's VA feels so wrong ...

Holy crap, Koyasu will be perfect as Shirogane's dad!! The only other comedic dad he voiced (from what I know), is Haruhi's dad from Ouran.

Oooh it's so close to finally airing, hopefully, it doesn't botch and ruin the fun of the manga


Well A1 tend to be quite good at these type of romance SoL so I have some faith

Freaking Dio's VA will voice Papa Shirogane, things can't get better.
