"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?

I'll just say this: This series is for pure comedy and enjoyment, but right now it's really outdoing itself in terms of comedy and has such a charm that people really shouldn't find a reason to hate.
I'll keep this as brief as possible:

STORY: As of right now, not much of a story or plot, but that's totally fine, this series' purpose is to present the everyday lives of two very good friends in middle school who play a one-sided game of trying to embarass the other, with Nishikata always getting the short end, which is always VERY funny. It's one great hell of a development read more

This wont be a long review, just a summary of my current thoughts at episode 4. I will update once the anime ends.
Look, this anime is plenty charming and all but lets face it. Takagi-san is lovable but annoying as shit. I honestly find her rather endearing, but I feel bad for Nishikata and dont feel like their relationship would ever go further than her tormenting him until she ditches him cause hes a wimp, but honestly the comedy is okay until you realize its all based on Nishikata being a punching bag for the show.

With Winter 2018 comes a plethora of Slice of Life series. One of them being a war. A war between 2 middle schoolers. Enjoying their youth to the fullest comes the ecstatic interactions between our two main characters, Nishikata and Takagi. In short, the females always win.

That’s basically the whole premise, a girl teasing a boy to no end and his failed attempts at retaliation only fans the flame even more. However, there’s always variety in the way she does her schemes. It’s fun to watch each time and highly enjoyable. As a manga reader, I am glad they were able to present all the read more

I wrote this after episode 1 came out, but it still applies across the board.

Now this review is rather unfair because a lot of my personal biases come into play here, so I'll have the first paragraph written from an objective point of view and the second is where I'll let loose everything else.

This is a somewhat refreshing take on the romance anime genre as it stars two kids (Nishikata and Takagi) who are in love with each other but seem to express this love through playing pranks on each other to try and get the other to do something silly and embarrass themselves. The read more
