Kaguya-sama: Love is War tells the story of the increasingly complicated relationship between Kaguya Shinomiya, the heir to one of Japan’s richest families and her high school student council vice president; and Miyuki Shirogane, the school’s over-successful but working-class president. The two student union leaders were clearly in love, but both were too proud to admit it. Instead of simply dating, the two engage in an increasingly complex series of mind games designed to get the other to confess their feelings first. The pair’s elaborate mind games often involve other members of the school’s student council, including the pessimistic otaku Yu Ishigami and the bizarre but lovable student council treasurer, Chika Fujiwara.

Both seasons of the anime are directed by Shinichi Omata, who previously directed Rozen Maiden, The Record of Grancrest War.
