What do you think the most popular anime genre these days is? Many anime geeks are specifically enjoying slice-of-life and romantic-comedy, which feature a peaceful daily life of boys and girls in a humorous and dramatic manner instead of powerful and supernatural battles and exciting grand adventures.
Teasing Master Takagi-san is a representative recent anime categorized as both slice-of-life and romantic-comedy, which has inspired a lot of trendy anime in the same genre lately. It centers on a bright and cheerful girl Takagi-san and her shy classmate boy Nishikata, set in a middle school in Shodoshima Island. She like to tease him with a variety of techniques while he tries to get back at her every time, which is always unsuccessful attempts.
Adapted from Soichiro Yamamoto’s manga series serialzied on Monthly Shonen Sunday (Monthly Shonen Sunday Mini before) since 2013, Teasing Master Takagi-san started airing from 2018. There are 36 episodes in the three seasons of the anime series so far. The latest and third season in 2022 was just followed by the first anime movie showing at the theater in June, 2022.
If you are a big fan of the two lovely characters, you must have completed all of the existing seasons in the anime series. For those who are missing Teasing Master Takagi-san and are interested in the following story after the anime series, I’d like to introduce where the Teasing Master Takagi-san anime ends in manga. So that you can read new episodes without waiting the next season of the anime series.

For those who haven’t watched the anime movie released in 2022 yet, it tells the story in the summer of their third year of middle school. It is a brand new story only in the anime that haven’t been depicted in the manga.
