The official website for the anime based on Sōichirō Yamamoto's Teasing Master Takagi-san (Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san) manga revealed a teaser visual, the staff, and the June 10 opening date for the upcoming anime film in the franchise on Friday.
The main staff from the anime's third season will return for the film. Hiroaki Akagi is directing the film at Shinei Animation, while Hiroko Fukuda is credited for composition, as well as penning the script alongside fellow third season scriptwriters Aki Itami and Kanichi Katou. Aya Takano is once again designing the characters. Hiroaki Tsutsumi returns from previous seasons to compose the music.
The television anime's third season Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san 3 (Teasing Master Takagi-san 3) premiered on MBS and TBS' Super Animeism block on January 7. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the third season and the upcoming film, and is streaming the third season on HIDIVE.
The first television anime based on the manga premiered within the "Anime no Me" programming block in January 2018, and it also adapted Yamamoto's Ashita wa Doyōbi manga as segments within the show. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Funimation streamed the series with an English dub. The second television anime season premiered in July 2019. The season debuted on Netflix in December 2019.
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?
Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san VR 1&2 Gakki (Teasing Master Takagi-san VR 1st and 2nd Semester), an expanded version of the virtual reality (VR) anime of the manga, launched for the Oculus Quest in December 2020. A new smartphone game for the franchise will launch this spring.
Update: The tagline on the visual reads, "The second year of middle school, a summer that will never happen again ...."
