Rated “T” for “Teen”
They are two high school students who are both from eminent families and are of good character. Kaguya Shinomiya, a well-bred lady and an heir, is Student Council Vice-President at Shuchin Academy, a school for the children of the rich and famous and for future leaders. Miyuki Shirogane is the strong, silent type who has a singular focus on his studies, and he is President of the Student Council. Kaguya and Miyuki are two geniuses, each in love with the other. But love is war, so which one will confess love to the other when the one who confesses his... or her love first loses.
As Kaguya-sama: Love is War, Vol. 6 (Chapters 51 to 60) opens, Kaguya and Shirogane have trouble with words when talking about cats and dogs. Second year student Nagisa Kashiwagi, who is head of the “Volunteer Club,” thinks that when they talk about cats and dogs, Kaguya and Shirogane, are talking about and around each other. Next, will Kaguya overdo it when she decides to celebrate Shirogane's birthday, because overdoing it will tell him that she loves him? And she can't have that.
THE LOWDOWN: The Kaguya-sama: Love is War manga is an episodic manga that is, in tone and tradition, like Hayate the Combat Butler, but it is also different. Each chapter is essentially an episode and focuses on a new situation. Kaguya-sama's situations are comedic, so it would be fair and accurate to call it a situation comedy or sitcom.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War Graphic Novel Volume 6 continues the series sudden turn in character development. Vol. 5 marked a series high point. This volume is more personal, if I am using the right word. The individual chapters focus on the relationships rather than on the plots. Vol. 6 is such a likable read because creator Aka Akasaka really lets you get to know her characters, and I am anxious to read more. Give Kaguya-sama a try, dear readers.
I READS YOU RECOMMENDS: Fans of sitcom-type manga will want to read the Shonen Jump title, Kaguya-sama: Love is War.
