New Kaguya-sama: Love Is War anime project, which is set to cover “The First Kiss Never Ends” arc will have both a theatrical screening (previosuly revealed) and a TV broadcast at a later date. The new information was previously teased on the anime’s official Twitter account.
According to a tweet shared on the official account, the theatrical screening will come first and will be followed by a TV one. An image from the third season’s finale (which was titled Ultra Romantic) was shared, along with additional details. The arc is known as “First Kiss wa Owaranai” in Japan.
The new Kaguya-sama: Love Is War anime project was announced after the finale of the third season aired in June, but details and format were not known, with many assuming that it was either a fourth season or a movie. The official announcement came in the August edition of the Monthly Newtype magazine, for which Kaguya was on the cover.
