‘Kaguya-sama: Love Is War’ season 3 release date: OVA confirmed for 2021; canon episodes could be delayed to 2022
The announcement that fans of Miyuki and Kaguya’s mind-game-filled love story have been waiting for since spring is finally here -- “Kaguya-sama: Love Is War” season 3 is officially entering production. That is not the only major news, though, as an original video animation (OVA) was also announced to premiere in 2021.
‘Kaguya-sama: Love Is War’ OVA episode will premiere in 2021
Fans wished for the “Kaguya-sama: Love Is War” season 3, and they received more. The story and the characters that will be featured in the first “Kaguya-sama: Love Is War” OVA is still unknown. But it has already been announced that the original anime content will be released sometime in 2021. Fans, especially those outside Japan, will also have to wait for further news on how they can watch the OVA once it is released.
The announcement of the two upcoming projects happened during the “Kaguya-sama Wants To Tell You On Stage” on Sunday in Japan. Since the first season of the anime started, the franchise has had adaptations in different forms of media including a live-action film that was released in 2019.
What the OVA means for ‘Kaguya-sama: Love Is War’ season 3 release date
The production of “Kaguya-sama: Love Is War” season 3 has been confirmed, but its release date is still under wraps. However, some fans speculate that the 2021 premiere of the OVA could mean that the next full season will be launched later than usual. A fan on Reddit suggests that the release of an OVA usually means there is an unusually long hiatus before the next season premieres.
On the other hand, the announcement of “Kaguya-sama: Love Is War” season 3 at this time can still mean a 2021 premiere is possible. The second season’s production was also announced during fall last year, and the new episodes were released last April. However, considering that COVID-19 also caused several anime studios to adjust their schedules this year could also affect when the third season is going to be released.
“Kaguya-sama: Love Is War” season 3 will continue the story of Miyuki and Kaguya, who are both in love with each other but are too proud to say it. They also believe that the person that is first to confess becomes the inferior one in the relationship. As a result, they both vowed to set up convoluted mind games and daily traps to force the other to confess. But it has so far only led to more confusing and complicated moments that also subjected those around them to some awkward encounters.
