Having a friend that knows you inside out should be a good thing, but in Nishikata's case, the opposite is true.

His classmate Takagi loves to tease him on a daily basis, and she uses her extensive knowledge of his behavior to predict exactly how he will react to her teasing, making it nearly impossible for Nishikata to ever make a successful comeback. Despite this, Nishikata vows to someday give Takagi a taste of her own medicine by making her blush out of embarrassment from his teasing.

This goes for all seasons and the movie, this show is cute, fun and adorable through and through. Can the series be repetitive? Yes, but I’d like to clarify that season 3 alone does so many unique twists on the otherwise routine nature of the show that you should watch the first two seasons for season 3 alone. From having a majority of an episode going completely silent, to putting our cast in a school play, wavy hallucinations and dreams you cannot differentiate from reality. So you find the mind games played between Nishikita and Takagi a little tiresome, alright. Then you might find the ...

Mixed Feelings
Teasing Master Takagi-San’s first season isn’t exactly what I want out of this style of anime, but it honestly did better than anticipated.

I actually do appreciate the comedy within the show between the two leads but honestly prefer the dynamic of the 3 side girls. They are a major highlight for me. As well as Nishikita’s constant need and desire to get one over Takagi. His internal monologue is very believable and grounded for a young boy like that. And it’s also just absolutely funny how he goes from very simply trying to humiliate Takagi in some way to being wary of any possibility she ...

I'll keep this short and sweet.
I disliked the first season, granted I did accidently watch the 2nd season before the first (because Netflix had the 2nd season but not both). I found this season to be boring and lacking in story, and not that funny compared to it's sequel.
I can understand why people would like this anime, but it's just not for me.
I did watch it all the way through because that's my goal with any anime, but I was hoping it would pick up a bit more in the end. To me, it didn't.
I have yet to see the OVA in between seasons, but ...
