Crunchyroll and Aniplex of America have revealed that Kaguya-sama: Love is War -The First Kiss That Never Ends- will debut in North America on February 14. It will be screened in theaters for two days only.

An English-subtitled trailer of the movie’s main trailer was also released.

Kaguya-sama: Love is War -The First Kiss That Never Ends- premiered in Japanese theaters on December 17. It is also set to be broadcast on Japanese TV. The show continues from the events of the anime’s third season and sees lead characters Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane facing a new challenge in their relationship.

The film’s plot is described as:

Shuchiin Academy’s student council room, the place where Student Council Vice President Kaguya Shinomiya and President Miyuki Shirogane met. After a long battle in love, these two geniuses communicated their feelings and, at the Hoshin Festival, had their very first kiss. However, there was no clear confession of love. The relationship between these two, who assumed they would be a couple, remains ambiguous. Now, overly conscious of their feelings, they must face the biggest challenge yet: Christmas. It’s Shirogane who wants it to be perfect versus Kaguya who pursues the imperfect situation. This is the very “normal” love story of two geniuses and the first kiss that never ends.
