Kaguya-sama Love is War
OtakuFeed found that this year’s 45th edition of Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump unveiled that Aka Akasaka’s Kaguya-sama Love is War (Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai – Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunōsen) manga is beginning its final arc. The manga will also be stopping in the magazine’s next edition and will come back in the 47th edition on October 21.
The manga had stopped in May so that Akasaka had time to write and make the manga’s brand new act.
Viz Media is publishing the manga’s English version.

Two intellectuals. Two minds. Two hearts. One clash. Who will declare their love first…?!
Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane are a couple of intellectuals at the top of their academy’s student senate, making them the elite. But it’s empty at the top, and they have fallen for one another. But, sadly, there’s just one significant obstacle being in the way of lovey-dovey joy. They don’t want to be the first to confess their love and therefore become the “loser” in the game of love! And so starts their everyday plans to push the other to admit first!”
