Takagi-san and Nishikata are the two main characters of the popular rom-com series “Teasing master Takagi-san”. The manga series is illustrated by Soichiro Yamamoto. Its original run was from 12 July 2017 till 11 April 2020. The first season of the anime adaptation was released a year after that, in 2018. However, the third season of Teasing Master Takagi-san was only released this year because of the worldwide covid pandemic. Fans had to wait almost two years after the release of season 2. Studio Shin-Ei Animation is handling the animation for the show. They have also announced a film adaptation for the fans too.
Episode 4 of the third season of Teasing Master Takagi-san just came out two days ago, and fans are already asking about the next episode. The last episode was very fun to watch as it had comedic as well as heart-warming moments. Since Takagi-san is always looking for moments to tease, Nishikata fans may miss the things she does to take care of him as well. They previously highlighted those moments of the duo. Episode 5 of the anime will also have similar cute moments between the two middle school students as they go about their daily routine. So if you are looking forward to watching some wholesome anime content, then definitely give this one a try. Teasing Master Takagi-san will definitely not disappoint you.
What happened in Episode 4?
Episode 4 of Teasing Master Takagi-san has kept the streak of cute and lovely sketches going, but it has also brought something new to the mix. Aliens! Yes. That’s right, we have our first alien spotting in the show. Now let’s go step-by-step on what happened in this episode titled, “Uniform change, Winter uniform, UFO, Night”. It starts off looking good for Nishikata as he has won his first contest against Takagi. She forgot to wear her winter uniform as she was trying to wear it on the day Nishikata would. But Nishikata wore his on that day as he had heard the weather forecast for that day. So Takagi lost, but she hadn’t told Nishikata about the contest, so he felt bad about taking that win. Instead, he proposes that if he can make her say the word cold that day, then he would win. He tries to use her old trick on Takagi, but she catches on, and it fails. Then Takagi-san wins by turning the contest into something romantic. And from how red Nishikata turned, it didn’t look like he minded that.
In the next sketch, we see the three girls from their class discussing winter uniforms. Sanae wore her summer uniform to class as Hibine forgot to inform her about it. So for an apology, Hibine pulls up her sleeve to make her blouse similar to that of the summer uniform. But by the end of the day, it starts getting pretty chilly. She feels cold but can’t pull her sleeves down in fear of Sanae. We get to see some cute antics between Hibine and Sanae during this part.
The third sketch, titled ‘UFO’, is where it all goes down. Takao-Kun, Nishikata’s spectacled friend, has taken picture of a UFO or a shiny light he threw in the air to make it look like a UFO, so to speak. Even though his lie gets caught by Sanae, Nishikata wants to take a picture like that. Takagi-san decides to help him by throwing the rock for him. After trying a few times and failing, they finally manage to get the perfect shot. But as Takagi-san looks at the picture, she notices it looks nothing like the rock she was throwing. She turns back and notices that there was a real UFO back there. But it vanishes before she can show it to Nishikata.
The last part, ‘Night’ is the most romantic out of all. Nishikata tells Takagi-san that he’ll go to the public bathhouse at 7 that evening. He expects her to be there as she was the one who asked for the time. But she isn’t there when he walks in. So he takes the bath feeling quite disappointed. But he sees her when he’s about to get his drink after the bath. Turns out she got there earlier as she takes longer to take a bath. As the two are walking home, Nishikata wants to compete with her again. He says that the person who blushes first loses, thinking that he has an advantage in the dark. But, unfortunately, Takagi-san is too smart to fall for that. She proposes that there will no self-reporting, and they should put their faces really close together to see in the dark. As she does so, Nishikata blushes instantly and loses. But, like a gentleman, after the contest, he offers to walk her home as it’s nighttime. When Takagi-san points this out, Nishikata blushes some more.
