Kaguya-sama: Love is War OVA (OVA, 2021)

The special OVA episode was released on May 19, 2021, and was bundled with the release of the manga’s 22nd volume. The OVA was iniially announced during the Kaguya-sama Wants To Tell You On Stage special event, which was held on October 25, 2020. The official synopsis tells us the following about the OVA episode:

What do Shuchiin Academy’s model students do outside of their student council duties? After a visit to the swimming pool, Kaguya Shinomiya and Chika Fujiwara take to the showers to wash themselves off. When Chika accidentally drops a bar of soap, the two find themselves in a rather slippery mishap.

Meanwhile, Miyuki Shirogane and Yuu Ishigami examine a discarded pornographic magazine—its content bearing an uncanny resemblance to the other student council members. Later on, an intense fried rice cook-off commences as Chika and Miko Iino seek to crown a master chef amongst the council. These eccentric activities reveal a side of the student council that has never been seen before!
