The manga's 22nd compiled book volume will bundle the OVA on DVD on May 19.

The OVA will have three episodes: "Kaguya-sama Darkness Volume 1," "Kaguya-sama Darkness Volume 2," and "Kaguya-sama wa Tabesasetai" (Kaguya-sama Wants Him to Eat). The Young Jump issue teases that the first episode will be a swimsuit episode, the second episode will revolve around a certain found book, and the third episode will be about a food battle.

The first television anime of the manga premiered in January 2019 and aired for 12 episodes. Aniplex of America streamed the series on Hulu, Crunchyroll, and FunimationNow. The company also released the anime on Blu-ray Disc in February 2020. Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai? Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunōsen, the second season, premiered in April 2020. Funimation streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Funimation dubbed both seasons of the anime.

The anime will get a third season.

The manga also inspired a live-action film that opened in Japan on September 2019. The film ranked at #1 in its opening weekend. The manga is inspiring a live-action sequel film that will open on August 20.

Akasaka began the series in Shueisha's Miracle Jump magazine in May 2015 but moved it to Young Jump in March 2016. The manga has also inspired two spinoff manga series.
