Kaguya-sama: Love is War Manga Gets 2 Spinoff Manga

Spinoff manga about erotic stories, student council admirers launch on June 14, July 26

The official website for Shueisha's Young Jump magazine is hosting a preview image for the magazine's 27th issue, which reveals that Aka Akasaka's Kaguya-sama: Love is War (Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai - Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunōsen) manga will get two spinoff manga. The same issue, which shipped on Thursday, also published the manga's 100th chapter.

The first spinoff manga is titled Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Dōjin-ban (Kaguya-sama: Love is War - Dōjin Edition) by Shinta Sakayama. The manga will imagine erotic scenarios that do not occur in the main story. The manga will launch on Shueisha's Tonari no Young Jump website on June 14, and will publish new chapters on the second and fourth Thursdays of every month.

The second spinoff manga is titled Kaguya-sama o Kataritai (I Want to Talk With Kaguya) by G3 Ida, and it will be a four-panel comedy spinoff about girls who worship the student council without knowing what really goes on in the council. The manga will launch in the 34th issue of Young Jump on July 26.

Viz Media is publishing the original Kaguya-sama: Love is War manga in English, and it describes the story:

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 the series in Shueisha's Miracle Jump magazine in May 2015 but it moved to Young Jump in March 2016. The ninth compiled volume shipped on April 19. A special side story ran in the debut issue of Young Jump Gold in May 2017. When the 10th volume debuts on June 19, the series will have more than 2.4 million copies, including the digital version of the manga. Viz Media published the second volume on May 1.

The manga is inspiring an upcoming television anime adaptation.

Sakayama launched a manga adaptation of Ichiro Sasaki's Hitsugi no Chaika (Chaika - The Coffin Princess) light novels in Kadokawa's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine in December 2011, and ended it in December 2014. Kadokawa published five compiled book volumes for the manga, and Yen Press published all five volumes in English.
