Kaguya-sama Love is War Season 3 Episode 6 Review- Let’s Be Objective
Time is a fickle creature and is well known for not waiting on anyone. Wasting it means never being able to come back to that particular moment ever again, and as such, any opportunities are advised to be seized immediately upon arrival. Well, let’s just say that the protagonists of this show are not the best at seizing opportunities. However, that is not for lack of interest or even initiative. The circumstances just happen to align so that nothing went the right way for a single character.

Time is also a luxury that the same characters don’t really have right now. They are ever so close to passing out of the high school they are in, ready to step into a bigger, scarier, and much more competitive world. It is basically all or nothing here, which is the premise of this episode. We see Kaguya and Miyuki go to lengths they had never gone before this episode, looking the most desperate they have ever looked in the process. It was interesting to see what a fully motivated president and vice-president could accomplish if that led anywhere.
You probably already know if those efforts ended up mattering in the end, but the important factor is that the star-crossed lovers are actually trying now, and the show has changed up its approach from Kaguya vs Miyuki to Kaguya and Miyuki against the world, even if just for this one episode. That is a highly entertaining way to go about things, even if that does lead to stories that are less than satisfactory in nature. If it all leads to a good place, there is no harm or foul in progressing things a little, especially since time isn’t on this relationship’s side.

Most characters had a good showing in this episode, including all of the main cast alongside Hayasaka, her mother, and Miyuki’s dad. Hayasaka is becoming a tired character faster than most would have imagined and needs a change to make her more interesting. On the other hand, Miyuki’s dad had a blast toying with Kaguya’s emotions in this episode. Hayasaka’s mother was there as well but she did n’t do much beyond existing. One couldn’t help but feel that more could have been made of this particular segment and that it ended up being a lot shorter and mattering much less than expected.
The usual suspects were great in Kaguya sama wa Kokurasetai Ultra Romantic Episode 6. The music was fantastic, the animation tremendous, and the voice acting the cherry on top of a delightful little dessert. After an episode like the previous one, we needed to get a little serious, which Miyuki thinking objectively about himself certainly was, even if it came out weird. It was a fun episode that took itself a little more seriously than usual, making it stand out.
Kaguya Sama Love Is War Season 3 Episode 6 was an incredibly fun episode that managed to get a lot done in a short time and moved the plot forward quite a bit.
