"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

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 story is very simplistic and shows several small stories that aren't really linked together read more

Ok, I'm gonna keep this short because I've already reviewed the manga, but let's goo! Also my points get really directed at this anime only woops
Do you like scenarios where:
•two characters have an ongoing competition

•two characters love each other, but don't at the same time

•one character loves the other, but only hints to it(alot to the watchers) and the other one dislikes the other but always hangs around them to get revenge, but don't realize the real reason might be because they like them

•one character loses a lot but doesn't back down

•the dude is that guy who thinks he's smart and has a lot read more

What makes an anime good? Gorgeous visuals? A kickass soundtrack? A well thought out script?

Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san shows that a good anime is one that entertains. Takagi-San entertains by taking advantage of the superb dynamic between the two main characters in order to create both comedic and entertaining scenarios. The dynamic doesn’t feel overused, and because of the great chemistry between Nishikata and Takagi, I doubt it ever will.

The story is fairly straight forward. Takagi and Nishikata always try to tease each other, and undeniably like each other. But what makes this interesting is that read more
