Manga about boy, girl who tease each other debuted in 2013
The August issue of Shogakukan‘s Gessan (Monthly Shonen Sunday) magazine is revealing on July 12 that Sōichirō Yamamoto’s Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san (Takagi-san, the Master of Teasing) manga will get a television anime adaptation in 2018.
The manga centers on Nishikata, a middle school student who has suffered humiliation due to being teased by Takagi, the girl who sits next to him. Since then, he has vowed to one day do the same to her and succeed in teasing her.
Yamamoto launched the manga in Gessan mini, the accompanying booklet to the main Gessan magazine, in 2013. After Yamamoto finished serializing his Fudatsuki no Kyōko-chan manga in Gessan in June 2016, Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san moved to Gessan in July. Shogakukan published the manga’s fifth compiled book volume on February 10, and will ship the sixth volume on August 10. The manga’s sixth volume will have a limited edition with a figure of Takagi.
