The manga Kaguya-sama: Love is War by Aka Akasaka is currently being published in Japan by Shueisha’s Young Jump and in America by VIZ Media. Young Jump just announced that the manga will go on hiatus, but thankfully it’s not because Akasaka is hurt or sick. Instead, the hiatus is for the mangaka to work on the story’s new act.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War is set to resume in the issue of Young Jump that releases on July 1.
VIZ gave this description of the manga series:
“All’s fair when love is war!
Two geniuses. Two brains. Two hearts. One battle. Who will confess their love first…?!
Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane are two geniuses who stand atop their prestigious academy’s student council, making them the elite among elite. But it’s lonely at the top and each has fallen for the other. There’s just one huge problem standing in the way of lovey-dovey bliss—they’re both too prideful to be the first to confess their romantic feelings and thus become the ‘loser’ in the competition of love! And so begins their daily schemes to force the other to confess first!”
