HIDIVE began streaming an English dub for Teasing Master Takagi-san 3 (Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san 3), the third season of the television anime, on Friday. The dub features a returning English cast from Funimation's original English dub of the anime's first season, including Aaron Dismuke as Nishikata and Sarah Wiedenheft as Takagi. The cast also includes some new members, such as Maggie Flecknoe as Mina and Joe Daniels as Kimura.
Netflix used a different cast for the second season's English dub, which included Billy Kametz as Nishikata and Kayli Mills as Takagi.
The anime's third season 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?
Yen Press is releasing the manga in English.
The film will open on June 10. The tagline on the visual reads, "The second year of middle school, a summer that will never happen again ...."
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.
