Kaguya-sama: Love Is War


On the official site for the live-action film adaptation of Aka Akasaka’s Kaguya-sama: Love is War (Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai – Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunōsen) manga, started streaming a teaser video for the film. In the video it reveals the film’s theme song “KOI-WAZURAI” which is performed by King & Prince.

Kaguya’s Anime VA Aoi Koga Makes Guest Appearance in the film as well. Koga tells us, “I was very surprised because I did not think that I could receive this offer. But it was a great honor to be involved in the live-action version as well.” She also praises the film’s two main cast, 20-year-old Kanna Hashimoto (Kagura in the Gintama live-action films) as the title character Kaguya Shinomiya and 22-year-old Sho Hirano (Johnny & Associates’ boys idol group King & Prince member) as her love interest Miyuki Shirogane. “The council president played by Hirano-san, Kaguya by Hashimoto-san, they expressed the difference between the anime and live-action in a good way, and they were so attractive. I hope the audience who plan to see this film will pay attention to that part and enjoy.”



The films cast is as follows:

  • King & Prince idol group member Shō Hirano as Miyuki Shirogane
  • Kanna Hashimoto as Kaguya Shinomiya
  • Hayato Sano as Yū Ishigami
  • Natsumi Ikema as Nagisa Kashiwagi

VIZ Media publishes the Manga. Their synopsis is this:

All’s fair when love is war!
Two geniuses. Two brains. Two hearts. One battle. Who will confess their love first…?! Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane are two geniuses who stand atop their prestigious academy’s student council, making them the elite among elite. But it’s lonely at the top and each has fallen for the other. There’s just one huge problem standing in the way of lovey-dovey bliss—they’re both too prideful to be the first to confess their romantic feelings and thus become the “loser” in the competition of love! And so begins their daily schemes to force the other to confess first!
