Teasing Master Takagi-san is one of those cute, slice-of-life comedy series that you just can’t help but like. It’s good to know the show is doing well in Japan and even here in the states as we now have the third season in Teasing Master Takagi-san 3: Complete Collection. It’s another round of laughs and feels as it teases to please its fans all over again.
The plot follows a young boy named Nishikata who is just trying to get through school, but finds it difficult to do so thanks to his classmate named Takagi who sits near him and is constantly being teased and pranked by her at every turn. Each episode features a different way she bothers him and how he tries to get back at her, only for it to backfire as she’s always a step or two ahead.
It’s clear that after the previous seasons that something is going on between the two as Nishikata is starting to get used to Takagi and her pranks, to the point he might actually start to like it as well as her. Of course she’ll never admit it, but Takagi is also feeling the same way. Will these two finally admit these feelings, or just keep having prank wars forever?
You’ll have to check out the series and find out as it’s one of the funniest and touching shows I’ve seen in awhile. It’s always fun to see what crazy stuff Takagi is going to pull and how Nishikata deals with it. Then there’s the emotional side of things that’s a treat under all of the silly stuff happening which you can’t get enough of.
As with all of their releases, Sentai did a great job making sure everything looks and sounds good in high-definition, which works out nicely for this series as the artwork and animation is fun to look at. The special features section is a bit on the light side with the usual clean opening and closing animations, but the twelve episodes of the series more than make up for it.
Teasing Master Takagi-san 3: Complete Collection is a fun and cute slice-of-life series that anyone can and should get into as its premise and characters will have you laughing at their antics, as well as feeling mushy with their secret feelings for each other in a show that’s sure to tease your heartstrings and funny bone.
