welcome to the assumadly last review of love is war (finally), and first off if you are a die hard fan then theres really no convincing you this is more for those who are on the fence for whatever reason. so ill be brief for everything but the story.

the animation has alwasy been pretty good and the same is true for season 3.  

sound is the same as well which means average but the music is great which is a huge plus.

the characters are much better, more variety and interaction with everyone else definitely makes everyone more natural feeling instead of the typical troupes and cliches that just pop up way to much now although there are a few times where it does make scenes more tedious to watch

now for the story i will not spoil anything until afterward and a lot of waringns so dont worry. so to start off, the biggest probelm is the show flips from hevay and happy way too much at the end. Which made the climax really... check your watch kind of annoying. now im watching for the comedy adn the romance part is the farthest back so that being said this season was absolutely hiarious and fun to watch. BUT man the romance aspect despite me trying to remain impartial took forever and it was as always seen from a mile away, which those two wombo combos make long running "whos gonna say it first" shows lame.  

wrapping this up in a nice little bow, the show was still fun to watch and they did a good job keeping the 3rd season fresh where so many others begin to loose its flare, but if the romance aspect just eats you  up in a bad way then dont watch it, otherwise the show is still a joy to watch. so Whatever you choose thanks for the read and have a good one.


first off they are continuing the series, in what way is still not known. although there area a couple obvious avenuse that seem likley to happen. first the less spoily spin off of what seems like an ungodly love triangle(which are always just PEAK story telling in the worst way possible ) with mio , ishigami and pink haired girl, which just seems like a dumpster fire on loose train tracks. 

now for the ****bigger spoiler**** father down 

no one confessed yeah its very stupid the build up for 13 minutes for a 10 second monent was horrendously underwhelimg when they spill the beans or if your quick you caught it before they metioned it, which they decide to essentially gloat about for the last five minutes before unceremoniously ending the show. this means that the show is probably going to slip into the same rythm(which can make the show being to feel stale), or it could go into a more romance and less comedy and be more about them and the relationships(which wouldnt be that bad). BUT it could also be a amalgamation of both of the last two or all three and be just an  inconsistent mess with little time for the funny and only time for the rut that they are starting to dig with the end of this season.  hopefully im wrong but im sure the manga readers already know but if youre that far invested most objectivism is thrown out the window.

well thats it for this one if you traversed into spoiler waters then cudos i hope you found what were lookling for otherwise there is no treasure here at the bottom. So see you guys and gals at the next review

If you liked previous seasons of Kaguya, just go ahead and watch this one, you'll like it.

If you weren't too fond of the previous seasons, i'd argue to still give it a try, because the format of ultimately irrelevant mini stories changes this season more towards bigger arcs that actually drive the story forward. 

It's a good mix between comedy, romance and wholesomeness. Recommended.

[Just copying my Review from S1]

At first, I thought, "wow what an awesome anime", and things kept progressively getting more and more awesome. But, it never struck me as a "10/10" anime. That was until I've watched the second season, and things are still getting crazier as we get closer to the finale.

The 2nd season is a million times better than the first, but both were insanely great.

The 2nd season made me realise that this is indeed, a high-production, high-quality anime with a wonderful storyline, with an endless amount of fun references, and that it IS indeed a 10/10 anime. A single person would not be able to pick up on all of the references made in it, but I did pick up on the R34 reference made in S2 :)

If I recall correctly, the pacing overall was a little slow in general, but considering how fun and enjoyable the anime was to watch REGARDLESS of whether there was any development occuring or not, proves how good this anime really is. It's a huge contrast to all the other "teasing" anime, because here, the slow pacing WORKED!

In fact, a faster pacing would have likely been bad. So, I don't think there's a single bad thing I can say about this anime. 

This will remain in my Top-10 list of anime for a LONG time.

Let's be real, If you're watching the third season you almost certainly watched the first and second seasons. In that case, why do you even need a review? Well, of course, you need a review to know if it's worth your time getting reattached to the story and the characters. I believe it is certainly worth your time. The third season acts as a good finally to the story with even a few juicy surprises towards the end. The comedy, quality, and story are probably the best in this season as well. Overall I would say this is an epic conclusion to the story, even if it makes me want 9 more seasons.

Much less funny compared to the last two seasons. Kaguya sama was peak comedy for me but this season was disappointing.
