It's back and charming as ever. Even that OP song is music to my ears.

Takagi is still energetic as ever with that bright smile. I love how tense Nishikata is around her, almost like he's anticipating to be teased. Glad to see some of other side characters making appearances too. Their character chemistry shouldn't be forgotten.

Nice amount of content they threw into the first episode already with fireworks, smiles, and all.

Takagi-san is back for its 3rd Season along with the counterpart manga Ashita wa Doyoubi, and it's more of the same. But mangaka Souichirou Yamamoto has 3 CONSECUTIVE seasonal manga adaptations starting now till Summer, so get hyped.

Yuiko Oohara's songs never get old, and the OP is quite the cheerful vibe to add to the already nice OST spanning since Winter 2018. Of course, you can trust Rie Takahashi in making some nice EDs for the same span of time.

Nishikata trying to challenge Takagi through grip strength, but the one thing that he cannot challenge is when they hold hands lols. This is actually a nod to most of the shenanigans of the past 2 seasons (the most prominent being Season 2's final episode of the Summer Festival), but most of them are fleeting dreams within Nishikata's mind. Pretty smart to include them all here for the first segment considering the time passed.

Nishikata got a sunburn since then, which was quite bad when touched, especially by the teasing Takagi. And since she decided to meet him up, the competition to find out the reason why she wanted to meet him, which for every wrong answer, she'd touch his back. The reason: she just wanted to meet Nishikata during the Summer break, part-tease, part-admiration. The 3 Asita wa Doyoubi girls are back as well, and they're so worried for their skin condition, they decide to go natural facial.

After Summer break, it's back to school, and Nishikata is back to his usual self of trying to one-up over Takagi, with the usual jack-in-the-box prank. The thing is, it felt like a legit puppy love's proposal though, but this time from Takagi's dream. And as usual, Nishikata's prank always fails.

This may be the finale season of Takagi-san, given all of the romantic innuendos. But still, welcome back Takagi-san.

I have been waiting two years like many of you. This anime is special to me because it’s the show that got me to like all other anime. I haven’t watched Episode 1 yet but this anime never disappoints! Super excited!

Nee! Nishikata! Nee! Nishikata! Takagi-san is back, and, even in their dreams, they're still a lovey-dovey couple as always.
Moo... moo... Takagi was looking pretty good, btw.

It's finally here!!!
They both dream about each other, that's so cute and amazing.
Judging from the op, I guess they will go on a trip.

They both ended up having dreams about the other, that's sweet. Takagi's dream was quite beautiful. I wonder what Takagi wants Nishikata to say to her heh. Also their short date outside was fun.

Pretty nice start to the third season, OP/ED were both nice. Good to have this anime back.

My God what a great start to season 3 and new ed is really good, about the episode I really wonder just what Nishikata was on to have a dream like that.

My 2 Highlights from his Dream were..

1. I can now say this is how Nishikata thinks Takagi looks like in Alternate Reality..

2. Kanojo, Okarishimasu (Rent a Girlfriend) Ch. 218 Ultra-Light Version.

I'm not a fan of this series but I'm glad that this series exists for the fact that I get to hear more Yuiko Oohara songs through anime. I've grown in my appreciation for them since MT was a thing and her opening song for this season of Takagi-san is definitely a fun and relaxing listen for sure.

Episode itself was a pretty ordinary one for the series itself to start off, didn't feel like there was a break between previous seasons and this one.

I was surprised with the work they did on direction, super fine.

O h ^ It's the first episode of s3, chillll this is too wholesome!
I really missed this show and I'm glad I'm experiencing it weekly. I really dig both the op and ed song but I really enjoyed the ending song! So good :p

I was getting lost with the whole "dreaming" thing, but once I clutched that they were dreaming it made sense and felt adorable.

Starting s3 off with a strong episode and I'm loving it already

What a trippy start. I almost thought Takagi drugged Nishikata xD Traumatic relationship.

Oh shit you're right! Takagi really does start looking at Nishikata over and over again lol. It happens right after the blur effect takes place and focuses on the half-green_half-red apple

As someone who thought the first 2 seasons were average with only 1 notable episode [being the cliche s2 finale], I must say this is my new favourite episode and I now have high hopes for this season to be new and different, rather than the same episodic jokes every episode, like it had been before.

Hahaha u did notice, she is supposed to just keep watching him but i guss they fucked the animation end and insted of ending it, it runs in a loop lol

Just like the first two seasons, this show cannot fail to put a smile on my face.
I really enjoyed this episode, and i can't wait to see how they will carry the story moving onward.

A fairly typical episode of this show to start season 3 with. Perhaps a slightly excessive use of dream sequences for my liking, but it provided some interesting parallels and shows how their relationship has grown.

Am I imagining it, or did all the production feel cheaper this episode compared to season 2? Not like it really matters for a show like this, but the character art definitely felt ever so slightly off compared to season 2.

Takagi is a profit!

Nice episode, they both appeared in each others dreams, but Nishikata still got teased in both of them LOL

I think Takagi's seizure at the end of the opening is quite interesting

The two lovebirds are back more wholesome than ever, on one hand I wish they would adapt most if not every manga chapter but this episode really made me want they would do a (Moto) time skip already.

The drawing style of some scenes feels quite different from the previous seasons...still, loving the new season so far!

The ED is nice as always:

I loved the first episode, the dream stuff was funny, especially Nishikata's (It was very random and with things we saw in the other seasons xD) but Takagi's was very nice <3!!!!
Very good.
The opening is very nice and the 1st ending (which I'm sure will change in the following episodes) is very good.

i'm so damn happy the show is back, hopefully it'll be as good as the previous season if not better

The 2 guys joking around as one of them slowly realized that there lives are so depressing and empty was the most realistic thing in this episode

Both dreams caught me by surprise, especially the second one where at first I even thought, where is Nishikata's tan? But I let it go without even thinking it could be a dream haha. How cute that they both dreamed about each other after what happened at the festival. By the way, it seems Takagi's fivehead lets her have premonitory dreams xD.

I'm so glad to have this show back, it's amazing how happy it makes me watch it. And just a few minutes into it makes me realize how much I missed Takagi, I love her so much. Moo... <3.

Takagi san is always an intelligent girl

I wonder when they wanna tell us how are they gonna endup with each other and also excited for movie
Sorry for bad english

Omg finally it's back I think I cried for the whole episode while laughing too because I miss the whole teasing that I have to wait for 3 years :c Anyways the grip strength is so impressive that Takagi is able to keep the "One, two" really constant. Also that dream Nishikata had was really hilarious that he kept on losing over Takagi's tease but at the same time it was so adorable. Also new semester is beginning so I'm looking forward to more tease and that jack in the box method made me teared up knowing or not if this series ever end, I will surely miss them and also Mina and her fellow friends trying out things with honey was pretty hilarious. Looking forward to the next episode!

It's finally back and its power to make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside is still as strong as ever. And I think this is the first time we've ventured into the mind of takagi herself; just a dream, but still her mind nonetheless...

Anyway, so happy that one of my favorite anime is back and will be looking forward to it every friday as a source of comfort and good feels. Hope the rest of you is enjoying this as much as I am, and here's the highlight of the episode:
