Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san (Takagi-san, the Master of Teasing) is a popular rom-com manga…and it’s about to get an anime!
The series has topped a variety of Japanese fan polls for manga that they’d love to see get an anime, and it’s even topped an Employee Top Choice poll for popular book chain Honya Club.
What makes Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san so popular? For starters, it began as a humble web manga on Pixiv Comic. The series was popular enough to net creator Sōichirō Yamamoto a publication deal with Shogakukan’s Monthly Shonen Sunday.
Also, the series is really cute. Nishikata is a middle-school student who is constantly being teased by his classmate Takagi. No matter the situation, Takagi is always able to make him blush from embarrassment. Whether it’s a random act of kindness or a fake love confession, she has Nishikata wrapped around her finger.
But, Nishikata has had enough and vows vengeance! One day, Nishikata plans on making Takagi blush from embarrassment…but his plans have to stop backfiring first.
Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san is set to air in 2018. The production staff and voice talent will be revealed at a later date.
