viz picks up kaguya-sama: love is war

Happy announcement! This is one of my favorite ongoing manga right now, I’m extremely pumped to add it to my collection!

The story follows the student council president, Shirogane Miyuki, and vice-president, Shinomiya Kaguya, as they wage the most absurd war ever. The Japanese title is “Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen,” which roughly translates to “Kaguya-sama Wants to be Confessed to: The Geniuses’ War of Love and Brains,” if that helps. Miyuki and Kaguya are absolutely convinced that the other loves her/him, but they are completely unwilling to admit to themselves that they are in love with the other, so they’ve decided to entrap the other person into confessing or otherwise admitting their love. However, considering these are the two smartest people at school, their plots and counterplots get very convoluted, as well as constantly broken into shambles when the airheaded secretary Fujiwara Chika gets involved.

It’s a very smart series that really knows how to show logical proofs, but also has an incredible sense of comedic timing. I highly encourage you to check it out once it’s released in English!
