Vice-president Kaguya Shinomiya and student council president Miyuki Shirogane met at Shuchiin Academy’s student council . After a long love battle, the two geniuses communicated their feelings to each other and kissed for the first time at the Annual Cultural Festival. However, they have not reached a clear confession yet, and the relationship between the two, who were thought to be lovers, remains ambiguous, and they come to Christmas with a stronger awareness of each other. Shirogane “wants to be perfect” and Kaguya seeks to be “not perfect”. This is a very “ordinary” love story by geniuses. First kiss never ends.
Kaguya-sama: Love is War: The First Kiss Never Ends anime film will follow the events of season 3.
The new anime movie is also the first ever anime movie for the series.
Like the previous seasons, A-1 Pictures will be in charge of animating the movie. A-1 Pictures’ producer Kenshiro Yamada said that the events of arc in question will only take up about two hours of screen time and it made sense for it to be made into a movie.

Crunchyroll describes the story:
Shuchiin Academy’s student council room, the place where Student Council Vice President Kaguya Shinomiya and President Miyuki Shirogane met. After a long battle in love, these two geniuses communicated their feelings and, at the Hoshin Festival, had their very first kiss. However, there was no clear confession of love. The relationship between these two, who assumed they would be a couple, remains ambiguous. Now, overly conscious of their feelings, they must face the biggest challenge yet: Christmas. It’s Shirogane who wants it to be perfect versus Kaguya who pursues the imperfect situation. This is the very “normal” love story of two geniuses and the first kiss that never ends.
