"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

First off thanks for upvoting this review guys! This is my first review and it feels good to get a solid response from it. I'm editing and adding more of my thoughts for this reason.
I don't like using the Story, art, sound, etc, way of reviewing. This is due to may great anime having no story and shit art but still being endlessly better than anime with complex stories etc.

The big reason to watch this show is the Super witty dialogue/humor and the somewhat lovable innocent characters. Now time to turn off your brain and laugh at the main character Takagi-Sans wit as she mentally read more

As some other reviewers mentioned, this one becomes very repetitive. At some point, you will start to question the sanity of the MC, and his struggles to avoid being teased by making the most ridiculous lies and tricks. It comes to such a point that almost in every occasion, you can see what is coming.
Unlike others who praised the "cuteness" of this anime, I beg to differ. There should be a minimal creativity involved in making a show, but this work avoids such and instead relies of "cute characters". I am not trying to be picky here, I do enjoy a very wide variety read more

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
