After a successful and meme-inspiring anime run, Aka Akasaka’s Kaguya-sama: Love is War manga will also be having a live-action film adaptation. And after revealing the film’s Miyuki and Kaguya, they have now revealed their Yuu Ishigami!

Hayato Sano (live-action 3D Kanojo Real Girl’s Tsuttsun) will be playing the student council treasurer for the film. Meanwhile, King & Prince idol group member Shou Hirano and Kanna Hashimoto will star as the two protagonists, Miyuki Shirogane and Kaguya Shinomiya respectively. 

However, that still leaves one very important and meme-inducing character. So… WHERE IS CHIKA?!

Hayato Kawai (live-action My Love Story!!, Nisekoi) is directing the film, with Yuuichi Tokunaga writing the scripts. Principal photography has now begun, and is scheduled to go on until the end of April. It is set to premiere in Japan on 6 September 2019.

Aka Akasaka’s Kaguya-sama: Love is War manga follows the student council of a prestigious academy. Its top student is Miyuki Shirogane, who is also the school’s student council president. He is in love with his Vice President, Kaguya Shinomiya, the school’s #2-ranked student and heiress to the Shinomiya business empire. Actually, both of them like each other, but can neve confess because of sheer pride. To them, whoever confesses loses, so they do a series of “battles” to get the other to confess their love for one another.
