Kaguya-sama: ‘Love is War Ending’ Takes Wilder Turns With Full Starship Troopers (Watch)

With its newest ending theme sequence, Kaguya-sama: Love is War Ending takes some unexpected inspiration from Starship Troopers of all things. As part of the Spring 2022 anime schedule, the third season of Aka Akasaka’s original manga series has finally debuted, bringing fans the chance to reunite with both the student council and the rest of the gang.

Just in the first few episodes of the series alone, there are already a lot of imaginative sequences, as there have been with previous seasons of the series. During the new opening and ending sequences, the Kaguya-sama: Love is War Ending series takes on even wilder turns than it did in previous seasons.

With the release of Kaguya-sama: Love is War Ending’s third season-ending theme sequence, fans have been treated to the kind of wild new visual presentation which they have become accustomed to from the franchise.

As part of the new theme, “My Heart Does Not Know What to Do,” a returning Airi Suzuki performs the actual sequence showcasing the characters inside the world of Starship Troopers. Visuals are not only mirrored for the alien battles in the movie but with some of the more famous gags and graphics. Check its trailer below to see if you can spot all the references:

If you have been anticipating watching the third season of Kaguya-sama: Love is War (as well as the series’ previously available seasons) on Crunchyroll, you can do so now. So far, the new season has only aired a few episodes, so there is still plenty of time to catch up with previous episodes and seasons as they air the rest episode of the new season gradually in weeks to come.

It has been officially announced that the new season will be titled Kaguya-sama: Love is War — Ultra Romantic — on Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll announced this stating:

“Shuchiin Academy—an elite school where the most gifted students flock to. It is also where its Student Council brought together Vice President Kaguya Shinomiya and President Miyuki Shirogane. While everyone expected a speedy courtship and agreed that the two geniuses would make the perfect couple, the pair, it seems, has too much pride to confess their true feelings for one another!

“By what means shall I make the other confess?’ The two remain fully committed to devising a highly cerebral strategy in this cunning war of love… Will they take their relationship to the next level by the final day of Shuchiin Academy’s culture festival!?”
