Director Hiroaki Akagi and studio Shin-Ei Animation are both back on-board for new production
It's official! The "Teasing Master" is coming back for more playfully romantic antics, because the KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN TV anime is returning to Japanese airwaves for a second season.
The new season was officially announced in the February 2019 issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Shōnen Sunday magazine, which was published in Japan on January 12, 2019. Director Hiroaki Akagi and studio Shin-Ei Animation are confirmed to be returning to work on the production.
At present, no further details about the new season (such as the release date) have been announced, although original manga author Soichiro Yamamoto notes that he is greatly looking forward to the new season while director Hiroaki Akagi thanks the fans for their support and asks them to look forward to the new season where "everything will be a little different".
The original KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN manga is serialized in Shogakukan's Monthly Shōnen Sunday manga magazine, and an English language version is also available from Yen Press under the title Teasing Master Takagi-san. The 2018 KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN TV anime is directed by Hiroaki Akagi and features animation production by Shin-Ei Animation. Crunchyroll describes the story of the series as follows:
"I swear I'm going to tease and embarrass Takagi-san today!" Nishikata, a middle-schooler, keeps getting teased by the girl who sits next to him in class, Takagi-san. He tries every day to get back at her, but will he ever succeed? Takagi-san and Nishikata's youthful teasing battle starts now!
