140 chapters, and it only keeps getting funnier. How does Akasaka do it?

I've heard good things about Kaguya-sama for a while now, but between the recent furor on r/manga and the sheer greatness of the Anime adaptation (it's at the prestigious Gintama-tier by the way), I decided to take a plunge.

 

I honestly cannot think of a better romantic comedy than Kaguya-sama, ever. Even if not best rom-com of all times, it's still king in the Manga category.

Like, Aka-sensei knows how to satire, ridicule and yet pay tribute to the whole genre while also injecting his fair share of meta-ness into it all. It's outright amazing. How can a male author write a rom-com as well as he does?

 

Seriously, Shirogane and Kaguya are both just brilliant yet lovable dorks, or in Hayasaka's words, "block-headed Tsunderes". For how ridiculous the premise of the manga is, I want to see them together.

The romantic aspects aside, I love the slice of life and (rare) school life moments too, with the character interactions being excellent once the cast expanded. The Manzai comedy is on-point, the happenings are considerably grounded and relatable, and there's so little fan service that I would rate the series at a cleanliness of 90%, a hard achievement given the artstyle most aim for these days.

Heck, for all those reasons above, the series actually reminds me of Sket Dance in a good way (though I put that at 95% cleanliness), not least because Kaguya-sama has a mystery element to the characters' past too

 

Aka-sensei, please stick the landing of the series all the way to the end. I want this to be a most commemorable story for my reading memories
