yep, it's anime original. I made a forum post after last episode and others agreed. I also looked it up on a manga site and saw no chapter that said culture festival or about a stage play. I hope they will go anime original to the last episode this season and end it here. Will have to check next episode if it'll be anime original too

Actually, the part on the rooftop is a big readaptation of chapter 137 on volume 16 of the manga. But yes, the rest is anime original I think.


True, just went to read it and it was the exact same dialogues apart from subject

There's also going to be a movie too so there's a big chance it could also be anime original too, to wrap things up, I suppose

Well, I feel sad to realize that movie will be the end of this amazing show, I really wanted more seasons, coz s4 and s5 can have contents from moto also, so yeah, I hope movie will be great and be soon be released , also hope there will be more seasons

I knew it! Even tho it's kinda expected that Nishikata will immediately replace Kimura as the prince, the scene was still absolutely charming. I'd say Takagi was able to freely express her feelings there directly, taking advantage of that situation. Takagi being bolder and bolder each episode, damn!

kimura o7 even though its probably an accident, ill think of it as a calculation of his own thinking to make nishikata the prince out there. and DAMNN that improv was great, takagi slipping in that "spring" was rly nice too

You know you’re in for a banger episode when it’s the school festival episode and there’s no OP. Not even Nishikata is dense enough to overlook Takagi’s confession this time.

You know it’s gonna be heck of an episode when they skip the OP, and heck of one it was, it was a great episode, I always love the cultural festival theme and Takagi-san does it wonders, had a nice haunted house bit, and we even got to see more of the underrated Houjou and Hamaguchi pairing, I had a funny feeling the reason he didn’t want to be seen by Houjou was because of his role in the cafe lol. And of course the prize moment, the entire play was great, but man that improv from Nishikata and Takagi (but was it really tho lol) was so nice, definitely one of the best moments of the series, our hunches that Nishikata would somehow end up in the prince role ended up coming true and it was amazing.

I also really liked the final karaoke bit, I believe the Doyoubi girls were singing an ED from one of the previous sessions, and we got a new ED song with new visuals, I had a feeling that was setup for Takagi to literally sing the song lol. Wowzers what a good episode that was, and very cool to hear this is anime original.

For music lovers: the ED is the 70's song "Gakuen Tengoku":



And for music nerds: the iconic "hey hey hey" intro is a ripoff of Gary U.S. Bonds' 1960 hit "New Orleans":

Pretty cute episode, enjoyed a lot.

It's finally time for the cultural festival!

The haunted house scene was fun.

The play was pretty intense, tears were shed. I loved the last scene, loved it when Takagi was looking at Nishikata when she said, "I'll stay by your side forever." Nishikata at the end was amazing, he put all his nervousness aside and shined, and boy did Takagi love it, the conversation turned from between Princess and the pig to between Takagi and Nishikata. LOL I completely missed that it was a confession from Takagi, rewatched that scene after reading other posts and then realised xD. I think it's safe to assume that Nshikata actually got it, his face at the end made it pretty clear. Though gotta say, Takagi is just too damn smooth.

I wonder what will happen in next episode, are they completely going to forget that happened and go back to being normal again or will something change?

Can't wait for next week!

I"m glad they add this anime original festival arc.
Yeah we already seen this stage play accident many times now, but it's always satisfying.
Nishikata saves it. The HYPE they're so close. Also Kimura with the clutch again haha.
And finally another Houjou and Hamaguchi scene.
Even better episode than the previous one, and I am crying, Tanabe sensei is also crying.

All I can say is. Quite the Improvisation.

It was predictable but works. I also love how they try to do the 'we will make you think something will happen halfway through the season when it won't as it's not that type of show'.

Either way not always into culture festival episodes but one of the better ones.

Also funny that it's a kids play but has so much going on and flows well. Got to laugh at that. The mix of mature and childish isn't too bad this season and comparied to a lot of anime for a particular joke/running gag. Original or manga content. Just interesting way they have changed or used the characters this time around.

For an original 2 episode arc not bad. Would have liked a bit of typical but the original content has been nice. I'm not falling for the bait but they are handling the show well in moments that count and play to the show's strengths than just a generic in-between episode that feels wasted. I mean we always get a swimming, culture fest, onsen, etc. every so often in one season or ova but it works Herre well enough. I do question what will be adapted next, what original and the movie/Chi or Adult Takagi and Nishikawa appearances will come next though. Also wonder if the anime scenes may appear in bits or a cut down version in the Moto manga. Who knows but can always speculate.

Best episode of Takagi san by far!! So much development in the third season already, I never really felt like season 1 or 2 accomplished this much at all besides that fireworks episode. Also love that they brought back one of the old ED songs during the karaoke bit (kimagure romantic)

this is easily my fav takagi ep and anime ep of all time.

from the massugu remix from the start to the roof scene to the haunted house to the play to the perfect transition to the ed.

only flaw is that it's too short :(

also enjoyed tanabe sensei's reactions lol

ooh I like the way anime inserts original content, still uses manga chapters as a foundation, but adds original context (and I think this change is for the better).

I also like that anime gives Takagi a chance to express herself, makes Takagi's feelings towards Nishikata less dragged out compared to the manga, and gives a more believable development, and also doesn't betray the manga completely because it still uses the scene/punchline from the manga chapters.

I Wouldn't say this is the best episode so far. But takagi's confess scene is the best scene in entire 3 season or even in manga. Definitely 10/10 for the last scene alone.


Agree. The confession hasn't happened yet in the manga but this is how I imagined it may have turned out. I wonder if the mangaka had input into the episode?

Just like with season 2's finale, this episode was superb from start to finish. and just like with season 2's finale, it's mainly thanks to the legend that is Kimura for gifting Nishikata a chance to take the spotlight and be with Takagi as a prince on stage.

His timing when Takagi accidentally stepped in the chestnut was spot on and it led to such a heartwarming scene between the two as they delivered one of the series' defining moments that left me grinning so much. Heck, even the hard as nails teacher of theirs was reduced to tears, which made me laugh! XD

I'm also surprised to learn that most of this was anime-original content and it seems that the manga readers here really like this episode, too, which is really nice to see. =)

Now we shall wait and see if the latter half of this season can even get close to how excellent this episode was...

I bet many people that the animation company cannot take a good episode better than season 2's episode 12. Now it's come a fake, but still I love "The Summer Festival" more.
#1 Summer Festival
#2 Camping Trip
#3 Water Slide, Cultural Festival and The season 2's episode 11 the invitation part.




I say Summer Festival is better because the whole season 2 is made for that one "HAND HOLDING" scene. But this time it's not like that, an only episode, that didn't get any progression. I love that season 2 got more, more, more progressions from episode 7, but now it's still not like that. I sure now too as a fan for the whole two years, Summer Festival is better. Whatever people say lol.

I am a day late but this role-play episode made the show better and better. This show in general is getting better and better with each episode ^

This episode also showcased all of he side characters in such an interesting way. Even the teacher was crying and laughing at their roleplay of Romeo and Juliot :p

Fantastic episode again. So excited for next week's ep!

On top of Season 2's Summer Festival finale episode, this might just be the best original, non-canon episode in the entire series yet.

Hojo REALLY wants to spend time with Hamaguchi, and really though, it was a sweet diversion. Doing a maid cafe that your girl is watching you do, it's certainly embarrassing.

Takagi in her princess gown is such a treat to see, and Nishikata...is just the same flustered self when presenting himself towards Takagi. Even the culture fest is an endless seam of grounds for Nishikata to challenge Takagi in order to win just one time. Sorry man, the Haunted House isn't your forte, and Takagi managed to scare the hell out of you.

The class play came, and as expected it performs like what we expect of a typical Romeo and Juliet style. Problem is Kimura ate too much and was having a stomachache, and Nishikata was subbed in at the very last minute. What happened right after that...was just TOTAL FIRE of Nishikata ad-libbing and Takagi following up thereafter. Man, I can't tell you how happy I am.

A great episode throughout.

I knew Kimura is the MVP, giving Nishikata a chance to be with Takagi in the stage. And I was on my way home, so I can't really scream. But when Takagi and Nishikata are with each other and sweet words were exchanged, it was so hard to not scream when a couple of people were in my back.

Damn it's just straight bangers, and I thought this season will be simply coasting like S1 and S2, but hell naw this is peak Takagi!!!
