    Kaguya-sama: Love Is War

    This got me interested


    (best ED 2019... and the OP is dope too.)


    And the show is hilarious.
    It's a typical rom-com but with a twist.
    Although the main characters like each other, they are too proud to confess their love. They believe whoever does so first would "lose" and would end up being the "sub". The story basically follows their schemes to make the other one confess first.

    Even though the setting is different and all, the humor itself reminds me of School Rumble. Over the top, silly, and full of misunderstandings.

    I dig the retro style OP, too. Its a step short of Kaiji's seriousness, but focusing on the mundane conflict of "adolescent love". Its cute.

    I crack at each "O Kawaii koto" scene, because it reminds me of the article I read about the roots of the Kawaii adjective that really fits the tone and attitude each time

    All the things I really like to do are either illegal, immoral, or fattening. And then: Golf.

    Still love the comedy in this one.

    S2 - 03:

    The moon watching was sooo hilarious. How Shirogane kept messing up Kaguya's plans by being too focused on the moon, haha.

    The second half had me scared that this season's already over because of corona. Phew.

    Gotta say though, they're both too obviously into each other by now, I'm not sure the premise of the show makes sense anymore. All that's missing is the actual phrase ('i love you'), but both clearly know about the other's feelings. I'd prefer if some progress happened. Maybe new goals? First to admit love. First to hold hands. First to kiss. And so on.

    Nope. I want this conflict to continue forever. "Nothing is more boring than a requited love story." - Tatami Galaxy.

    Spunky.

    I think you misinterpret the point of the show. Both of them have pretty much known all along that they other one likes them. The conflict is getting the other to admit it first.

    It doesn't matter how "obvious" it becomes. Until one of them confesses, the struggle continues.

    Is that true? If so I take back my criticism. Always thought they didn't know about each other's feelings for them.

    They don't "100%know"-know, but they are aware that there is something between them, but both of them are too prideful to be the sub and the one who will confess first will be exactly that.

    This show is basically about them trying NOT to confess, instead of trying TO confess.
    That's the twist of this show and I think it is a really funny idea.

    So, for the viewer, it's basically a game too, instead of the usual "oh god, please do it already..." (even though people obviously want them to be together at the end too, me included)

    Just caught up with the first 4 eps this season; still good to watch.

    Is it just me, or has the animation/directing gotten more punchy this season? There seem to bee more off-angle shots and unique expressions this time around.

    I thought that as well. Kaguya in particular seems to be way more expressive. But maybe that's just cause her composure is breaking down.

    But I miss the "O kawaï koto" memes a lot

    They brought back all the S1 hits for this one! All that was missing was a new Chika dance.

    TO BE CONTINUED...

    "...eh?!"

    great episode.

    edit: man, I want that little Chika rap.gif meme with all kinds of music in the background

    https://imgur.com/KAGaSfB

    it fits to all kinds of music so well, it's so silly.
    Like this for example:

    I love that character. Best side character 2019+2020 imho.

    Okay, putting that girl on the council is going to cause them endless problems during future flirtations.
