Kaguya-sama: Love is War manga series will release the final volume, volume 28, and a fanbook along with G3Ida’s spin-off Kaguya-sama wo Kataritai’s final volume (8) on December 19. Aka Akasaka ended the 7-and-a-half-year-long serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump in early November 2022. The spin-off also came to a conclusion in the issue as well.
The final volume’s cover shows Kaguya Shinomiya, Ai Hayasaka, Maki Shijo, and Miko Iino from right to left. Below them stays Chika Fujiwara in half. This cover forms an illustration when combined with the cover of the previous, 27th volume.
The fanbook is titled Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai Last Koshiki Fanbook Shuchi-in Gakuen Sotsugyo Party~Kaguya-sama wa Iwawaretai~, which translates into Kaguya-sama: Love is War Last Official Fanbook Shuchi-in Academy Graduation Party~Kaguya-sama wants to be congratulated~. The book features the main duo, Kaguya and Miyuki, in formal clothes on the cover. The spin-off’s 8th volume has Karen Kino (left) and Erika Kose (right) on the cover and behind them are Kaguya and Miyuki (this is also the cover of Kaguya-sama Love is War‘s 26th volume).
