Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san Manga Gets Original Video Anime With Swimsuit Teased
posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the television anime of Sōichirō Yamamoto's Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san (Takagi-san, the Master of Teasing) manga announced on Tuesday that the ninth manga volume will have a special edition bundle with a new original video anime. The anime's website and Twitter account say that the bundle will ship on July 12, although Shogakukan lists July 10.
The story premise of the original video anime is derived from episode 7 of the television anime, in which Nishikata bought a swimsuit with Takagi. Takagi (teasingly?) said, "Let's go swimming together," but Nishikata's careless response was, "…Ok."
The television anime premiered within the "Anime no Me" programming block in January, and it ended this evening. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan, and Funimation is streaming the series with an English dub.
Funimation describes the story:
Tired of being mercilessly teased by his classmate Takagi, Nishikata has vowed to get her back and successfully tease the girl that's made him blush countless times. After all, if you blush, you lose! But getting vengeance isn't so easy when every attempt blows up in his face. Will Nishikata ever make Takagi blush or will he gain something more fulfilling from his bumbling attempts?
Hiroaki Akagi (Hina Logic - from Luck & Logic) directed the television anime at Shin-Ei Animation (Elegant Yokai Apartment Life, Doraemon). Michiko Yokote (RIN-NE, Genshiken, ReLIFE) handled the series composition, and Aya Takano (Himouto! Umaruchan, Kimi no Koe o Todoketai, Polar Bear's Café) designed the characters for animation. Takuji Mogi (And you thought there is never a girl online?) and Natsuko Kondou (animation director for Natsume's Book of Friends seasons 3 and 4, Durarara!!×2 Shō) were the chief animation directors.
