Kaguya-sama: Love is War could continue in ten years
The news of the withdrawal aka akasakaauthor of the franchise Kaguya-sama: Love is War, is still making an impact within the fan community. However, others are focusing on other parts of his statement, specifically the one where the author notes that “there could still be things to tell about the life of Kaguya Shinomiya“.
Akasaka announced his retirement from the manga industry this week, specifying that he will stop working as an artist, but will continue to write stories for others to draw. This role is known asoriginal author“, and it is the same one that currently meets in the manga Oshi no Ko (My Star), which is drawn by Yokoyari Mengo.
In his update, Akasaka also noted that the serialization of Kaguya-sama: Love is War didn’t leave him entirely satisfied, apologizing to fans for the fact that “there would be some things pending in that work“, though He also pointed out that he would do everything possible to tell them in some way. However, it seems that fans found an old post where the author points out when that sequel could arrive.
In a May 2020 Twitter post, Akasaka shared an update mentioning that he was completely drunk. One of his followers took advantage of the occasion and asked him directly: «Do you plan to do a story that covers the “University Arc”?», referring to continuing the story of the manga by telling the university life of the main characters.
Akasaka also responded directly: «At least not right now; but a resurgence in 10 years is entirely possible». Of course, we’re talking about a post from two years ago, but have your plans changed since then? They say that children and drunks always tell the truth, and considering the state the author says he was in, could we expect a continuation of the play in 2030 (considering he said “ten years” in 2020)?
