I filed the trailer for Teasing Master Takagi-san in a group called “No Japanese, no problem” because if you don’t speak Japanese, it’s not a problem.
You can watch this 100% Japanese language trailer and still get 100% of the emotional impact and the idea of the story and lose only some details.
The trailer is for the film. The TV series dates to 2018, and IMDB suggests this for the storyline;
“If you blush, you lose”. Living by this principle, middle schooler Nishikata gets constantly made fun of by his seat neighbor Takagi-san. With his pride shattered to pieces, he vows to turn the tables and get back at her some day. And so, he attempts to tease her day after day, only to find himself victim to Takagi-san’s ridicule again sooner than later. Will he be able to make Takagi-san blush from embarrassment even once in the end?
Crunchyroll had the first season, Netflix the second, and it was aired in 2019, but I don’t recall it being an option in the UK. There was an OVA too.
The third season has just finished on Japanese TV, and the movie premieres on June 10.
What do we know about the movie? Nishikata and Takagi find a kitten.
Fan favourite and voice of Rem from Re: Zero, Inori Minase, will voice… the kitten.
