The staff of the television anime of Soichiro Yamamoto's Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san (Takagi-san, the Master of Teasing) manga revealed screenshots from the original video anime that will ship with the manga's limited edition ninth volume on July 12. The episode will adapt the manga chapter "Water Slide."
More screenshots are available at Mainichi Shimbun's Mantan Web website.
The television anime premiered within the "Anime no Me" programming block in January. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Funimation streamed 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! Umaru-chan, 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.
