If your Sunday could use a little sweetness, then be sure to check out the non-credit opening and ending animations for Season 3 of KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN (also known in English as Teasing Master Takagi-san), the ongoing TV anime adaptation based on the romantic comedy manga by Soichiro Yamamoto about a young lady who loves to play pranks on the boy that she likes.

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. Crunchyroll describes the story of KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN 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!
The KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN TV anime is directed by Hiroaki Akagi and features animation production by Shin-Ei Animation. The third season of KARAKAI JOZU NO TAKAGI-SAN is currently broadcasting in Japan and streaming in the United States via HIDIVE, while the first season streams on Crunchyroll and the second season streams on Netflix.
