Synopsis

"If you blush, you lose."

Living by this principle, the middle schooler Nishikata gets constantly made fun of by his seat neighbor Takagi-san. With his pride shattered to pieces, he vows to turn the tables and get back at her some day. And so, he attempts to tease her day after day, only to find himself victim to Takagi-san's ridicule again sooner than later. Will he be able to make Takagi-san blush from embarrassment even once in the end?

The first episode is now out. It airs every Monday at 8:30am Pacific: http://www.crunchyroll.com/karakai-jozu-no-takagi-san/episode-1-eraser-day-duty-funny-face-one-hundred-yen-759133

Episode 1

Nishikata sure is gullible seeing that he is falling for everything Takagi throws at him all while his attempts at teasing always seem to fail. Whether it be about the message on the eraser or ditching day duties not noticing that Takagi was hiding behind the curtain, or putting on the funny face. There's just no out-teasing the master of tease as all it does is fail.

I'll probably just stick with the manga. I don't think the VA's match the characters very well, especially Nishikata. His voice gets too deep and sounds older than it should be.

Damn, Nishikata keeps getting owned, LOL.


But there's a certain limit that a person could take when it comes to pranks, and I do hope Takagi knows when to back off.

You'd think we'd be used to imbeciles as our beloved protag-kun-ists, but it never gets easier.

Ha too cute, this kid don't know how lucky he is. Not sure how they can make a whole season of this though if that's all there is to it.

Takagi is awesome. Her voice actor is doing some great work here.

Yeah, that's my thought as well. The show was cute and fun but then it just kept going and going.. and going. I really don't see how this is going to hold up for a whole season when even a single episode felt like it started getting overly repetitive.

Let the teasing begin! Another anime I've been anticipating since the manga really fun. The animation wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I was kind of scared when watching the trailer from all the way back, but it doesn't look that bad.

I have to agree. Yuuki Kaji is a mixed bag for me, I think he does a decent job voicing some characters, but others it doesn't fit, especially with Nishikata.

Episode 1

Things start off with Nishikata trying to make a jack in the box to scare Takagi but she beats him to it. Than we have the prank with the eraser where she tells him about writing your crush on it only to find a message she wrote on her eraser. The next day Nishikata wakes up early to do board duty and sees that Takagi came to school early. Instead of doing board duty he tries to find her but didn't realize she hid behind the curtain. Than he tries to make funny faces to make her laugh but instead gets tricked and gets in trouble by the teacher.

Each episode will focus on certain pranks that Nishikata will try to do on Takagi and repeat. It does have it's funny moments but this could have been better as 12 minute short.

I thought the opposite, to me she sounded older than she should.

Skilled Troll Takagi-san.

Good first episode. 50/50 chance of finding out the girl teasing you has a crush on you. Better luck next time Nishikata.
