Kaguya-sama: Love is War Manga to Go on Hiatus Until July 1, 2021

This year’s 26th issue of Shueisha’s Young Jump magazine has announced that Aka Akasaka’s Kaguya-sama: Love is War (Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai – Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunōsen) manga will go on hiatus so that Akasaka can write and compose the manga’s new act. The manga will return in the magazine’s 31st issue on July 1, 2021.

The story of the manga is described as:

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.

Akasaka began Kaguya-sama: Love is War in Shueisha’s Miracle Jump magazine in May 2015 but it moved to Young Jump in March 2016. VIZ Media is publishing the manga in English.
