A couple of days ago we had the premiere of one of the most anticipated series of the entire season, we talked about the third season of Kaguya-sama: Love is Wartitled Kaguya-sama: Love is War – Ultra Romantic. In this context, the web portal Comic Book Resources published a curious article devoted entirely to the character of Chika Fujiwara. This note became a trend because the character is titled as “an annoying character, but important to the franchise“.
The article says the following:
Reasons to be a good character: There is never a dull moment when Fujiwara is around.
At any moment, he’s likely to launch into a highly choreographed dance, suggest an overly complicated game where he’ll instantly start cheating, or show a seasoned ramen lover what a true connoisseur looks like. She is good friends with Shirogane whenever she needs help with anything new she’s terrible at, and she definitely adores Shinomiya. Fujiwara can’t be pigeonholed because in every episode of her she does something different, either displaying incredible intelligence and skill or an incredible lack of it. She is a member of the Board Games Club, a conductor for the Shuchiin Academy morning anthem, a proud mother of a dog, an average volleyball player, and a detective who can’t whistle or read the room. The only thing that is predictable about her is her unpredictability, and it is her greatest strength as the most versatile character in the series.
Reasons to be an annoying character: Despite Fujiwara’s efforts, she is not the protagonist of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War (in fact, she could be the villain).
The battle between Shinomiya and Shirogane to get the other to confess their love is the engine of the series, and Fujiwara constantly thwarts it. Shinomiya and Shirogane are arguably two of the most headstrong characters in anime, considering the entire premise of their series is based on how headstrong they are. On the rare occasions when one or both of them let their guard down and there’s an opportunity for them to drop the act and be together, here comes Fujiwara to eat the food they’re feeding each other or just kill the mood in general. Once or twice it could be chalked up to bad timing, but Fujiwara could be the main reason Shinomiya and Shirogane aren’t a couple yet, other than his own pride of course.
Reasons to be a necessary character.
Since the goal of the series is to know who is going to confess first, the confession cannot happen until the end of the series, since without Shinomiya and Shirogane’s battle, there is no story. This makes Fujiwara the most important character, as his constant, exhausting, frustrating, childish, selfish, and hilarious interruptions and love-blocking antics keep the series afloat. There should be exactly zero fans of Chika Fujiwara, given the undesirable role of an obstacle that she is forced to play in the series. The fact that she is so loved despite this is a testament to the strength of her character, even if nothing she makes of her makes sense, because without her, the series wouldn’t make sense either.
Let us remember that this third season began its broadcast on April 8 and we can enjoy it through Crunchyroll. The first two seasons are also available on the platform with its Latin dubbing, which was made in Mexico under the direction of the teacher Leyla Rangel.
