Kaguya-sama: Love is War Season 3 Episode 4 recap

Episode 4 kicked off by showing Yuu Ishigami’s frustration as he can’t stand couples being all lovey-dovey on campus. However, his anti-love demeanor vanished momentarily as Tsubame entered the room. Kaguya noticed Ishigami’s feelings for Tsubame and persuaded him to confess before it was too late.

As Ishigami considers himself a failure, Kaguya asked him to place in the Top 50 of the Second Semester Final Exams. Although Ishigami was never really a bright student, this time, he gave his best to be ranked in the Top 50. However, he didn’t even manage to get placed in the Top 100.

Ishigami didn’t display any kind of frustration or bitterness in front of Kaguya, but after he left to get some alone time, he was really disappointed with himself for the first time in his life. Later, he promised himself and also Kaguya to become the best version of himself and also proclaimed that he would double the amount of effort he was putting in to get a position in the Top 50.

Kaguya has never really invited Chika to her home due to the fact of keeping Hayasaka’s identity of being a maid a secret. Initially, it was Chika who invited Kaguya to her house, but due to some circumstances, she had to cancel. Chika didn’t want to drain Kaguya’s excitement in vain, so she proposed the idea of having a sleepover in the Shinomiya Mansion.

Kaguya always goes to bed precisely at 11.00 pm for her beauty sleep, but due to Chika, she had to remain awake even after past midnight. In this sleepy situation, Kaguya’s concentration power depletes to zero, which is why she never opposed Chika in facetiming Miyuki at this time.

Moreover, as Kaguya was having a hard time understanding the situation, she was about to reveal her feelings to Miyuki. Luckily, she was saved by blacking out right at the moment of saying the name.

What to expect from Kaguya-Sama: Love is War Season 3 Episode 5?

Kaguya-sama: Love is War Season 3 Episode 5 segments are titled "Chika Fujiwara Wants to Beat a Rhythm," "Ai Hayasaka Wants to Talk," and "Maki Shijo Wants Some Help." With the title of the first segment, it is pretty evident that the adorable Chika Fujiwara might be singing. Moreover, as she doesn’t like to do things alone, the entire Student Council may also get dragged in.

Episode 5 will also focus on Ai Hayasaka, but the person she will encounter still remains a mystery. It will also feature Maki Shijo, who might have come up with a plan to separate Tsubasa and Kashiwagi.
