The First Kiss That Never Ends was announced after the end of the series’s third season earlier this June. It is set to have a TV broadcast in Japan after its theatrical screening. The first two seasons of Kaguya-sama: Love is War aired in 2019 and 2021 respectively, while the third season premiered in April this year.

Viz Media describes the manga as:

As leaders of their prestigious academy’s student council, Kaguya and Miyuki are the elite of the elite! But it’s lonely at the top… Luckily for them, they’ve fallen in love! There’s just one problem—they both have too much pride to admit it. And so begins the daily scheming to get the object of their affection to confess their romantic feelings first…

Love is a war you win by losing.
