As we move closer and closer toward the end of the Spring anime broadcasting slate, fans around the world are preparing themselves to say goodbye to some truly iconic shows.

Arguably the biggest finales of this week will be the conclusion of Spy x Family part 1 and Kaguya-sama season 3.

However, amazing news for fans of the latter series is spreading like wildfire online; the last broadcast of Kaguya-sama’s third season will be extended for an hour-long duration!

Kaguya-sama season 3 finale extends runtime to one hour

The Kaguya-sama: Love is War – Ultra Romantic season 3 finale has just been confirmed to be one hour long!

However, fans should note that this is not a single one-hour long episode and is in fact, two episodes edited together for a big finale following confirmation that season 3 consists of 13 total episodes.

The announcement was accompanied by a special preview video of the finale, a 2-minute 20-second video on the Aniplex YouTube channel which also featured some of the highlights from season 3 so far.

The video featured the tagline “Goodbye romantic comedy —— To all those in love. The legendary episode that dyed the world in love, finally animated.”

A new key visual was also shared, see end of next section.
