Presentation :

Kaguya-sama : love is war ("Kaguya-sama wa kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no renai zunōsen" in japanese) is a seinen, and a romantic comedy written and illustrated by Aka Akasaka. Inspired by this orignal manga, A-1 Pictures, decide to create a serie adaptation of Kaguya-sama: love is war. The production staff is constituted by Mamoru Hatakeyama as realisator, Yūko Yahiro as chara-designer, Jin Aketagawa as sound manager and Kei Haneoka who is in charge of the musics. The episode are 25 minutes long, cut in about three big part. The first episode of the first season was diffused the 12 january 2019 and the second season start the 11 april 2020 and it's currently airing. 

Synopsis :

Kaguya sama : love is war is a story which portrays two teenagers, Kaguya Shinomya and Miyuki Shirogane. They are in a famous school and Shirogane is the president of the student office and Kaguya is the vice-president. Both of them think than the other fall in love for him. Shirogane thinks Kaguya loves him and conversely. They will imagine many plan to forced the other to declare his/her true love. Force the other isn't easy because both have an immense pride. The love will become war. 


My opinion


First of all, the animation is really good, I've no comment, we feel emotions, mouvements. After the animation talk about the ambience. Music matches with the theme, openings and ending are good, and each character have his own personality who is not govern by one personality trait. Next, it's the first romantic comedy than I've seen with this style, the personnage mentality is more "How I can force him/her to declare to me" and not "He loves me ?". There is action an we want know what's the next strategy ? The confrontation between the two characters is felt every episode.
Persons who like anime with "strategy" as Kaiji, Death note, Code Geass... And romantic comedy it's a pretty good anime for you. Moreover, It was the first anime who made me laugh so much. The humour and the cutting of episode reminded me Ani ni Tsukeru Kusuri wa Nai! (who is an humoristic with episode who during about 4 minutes anime, and, I recommend too). 


Conclusion :

In conclusion, Kaguya-sama : love is war isn't a romantic comedy as the other, it combines love with humour and strategy. So I advise, first, to every person who like romantic comedy to see this anime, next, to every one who like anime. I suggest to reluctant people to watch two or three episode to form an opinion.
