Teasing Master Takagi-san is a rom-com anime series that first came out in 2018. The TV show is already on its third season and has aired 3 new episodes this year. This season comes after a long wait for fans as the last season came out in the year 2019. “Teasing Master Takagi-San” also known as just “Takagi-san” for short, is an anime adaptation of the popular teenage romance manga of the same name. It is illustrated by Soichiro Yamamoto and published in the Monthly Shounen Sunday magazine. The anime adaptation was first announced in the year 2017 and its first season premiered in March 2018, followed by the second in 2019. Now there might have been a delay in announcing the third season due to the worldwide pandemic. But they announced the third season in September 2021 along with a new film adaptation.
The anime is about two teenagers Takagi-san and Nishikata who are involved in a game of teasing each other. However, Takagi-san always seems to have an edge over the gullible boy, NIshikata. Each of the episodes is divided into short sections where they show the two engage in their games. Like in this season we saw Nishikata bring a piece of grip-strength exercise equipment to school. He wanted to get some exercise in as well as look cool in front of his friends in school. But Takagi-san ends up making him use it too much and by the end of the day, all Nishikta does is get hand cramps. This show is a fun and cute watch for anybody looking to get into a new anime to watch. Definitely, this will help you have a good time.
Recap of season 3 episode 3:
In episode 3, titled, “Fan, bewildered ball, cat rescue, Rain” we get three sections of Takagi-san and Nishikata and another section of their 3 classmates trying to rescue a cat. The episode starts off in the summertime, with everyone feeling the heat. Takagi-san who never seems to break a sweat also seems to be sweating. Nishikata shows off his fan to make her jealous. But instead, she suggests a game with the said fan. Her rule is anyone who can move the eraser the farthest with the fan gets to enjoy being fanned by the other person. Nishikata tries his hardest to blow the eraser away by his fanning but only manages to budge it by a millimetre. Takagi-san then moves it by simply pushing it with the fan. Takagi-san wins again.
The next day, Takagi-san sees Nishikata talking about his favourite baseball manga and devises a plan to tease him again. She stealthily drops a ping-pong ball in front of him and waits. Due to his running imagination, he begins to pitch the ball like he’s a baseball player. But deflates as soon as he spots Takagi-san was the one who dropped the ball there. She again makes him play another game. She takes out a broom and says that she won’t tell anyone about his fantasies as long as Nishikata plays some baseball with her. He tries to win but ends up losing to her again as Takagi-san scores a home run.
During the cat rescue, section, we see three girls who are returning from school spot a cat that’s stuck in between two walls. They try to rescue her but unfortunately, it suddenly starts to rain. The three rush to find someplace where they can get away from the rain. As they are worrying if the cat is alright or not, it arrives in front of them, soaked from head to toe. The cat was never stuck. They thought the cat was fat because of its fluffy fur.
Now the last section was all about rain. As school is about to end, it starts raining. As soon as the bell rings, Nishikata runs to the lost and found section to get an umbrella since he forgot to bring his. He didn’t want to be teased by Takagi-san again so he hastily takes the umbrella and left for home. But on his way, he can’t help but worry bout her. This just proves that even though he’s always competing with her, Nishikata really cares for Takagi-san. He returns to school and sees her waiting out the rain. The two return home under the same umbrella and Takagi-san does tease him just a little bit along the way.
