The official website for the television anime of Sōichirō Yamamoto‘s Teasing Master Takagi-san (Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san) manga posted a promotional video and teaser visual for the second season, Teasing Master Takagi-san 2, on Monday. The video confirms more cast and staff members, as well as the season’s July premiere.
As previously announced, director Hiroaki Akagi is returning from the first season to helm the second season at Shinei Animation. Shin’ya Une is serving as assistant director, and Kanichi Katou (Black Clover, Idol Time PriPara), Aki Itami (Flowers of Evil, The Comic Artist and His Assistants), and Hiroko Fukuda (Amanchu! Advance, Uchi no Oochopus) are the new writers. Aya Takano is returning to design the characters with sub-character designers Takuji Mogi and Natsuko Kondou. Mogi and Kondou are also reprising their chief animation director roles, but are joined this season by Takehiro Suwa and Takano. Hiroaki Tsutsumi is also returning to compose the music.
Rie Takahashi and Yuuki Kaji, the voices of the titular character Takagi-san and Nishikata, respectively, previously confirmed that they are also returning for the second season.
Yamamoto launched the manga in Gessan mini, the accompanying booklet to Gessan (Monthly Shonen Sunday), in 2013. After Yamamoto finished serializing his Fudatsuki no Kyōko-chan manga in Gessan in June 2016, Teasing Master Takagi-san moved to Gessan in July 2016.
The first television anime premiered within the “Anime no Me” programming block in January 2018, and it also adapted Yamamoto’s Ashita wa Doyōbi manga as segments within the show. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Funimation streamed the series with an English dub.
Funimation describes the story:
Tired of being mercilessly teased by his classmate Takagi, Nishikata has vowed to get her back and successfully tease the girl that’s made him blush countless times. After all, if you blush, you lose! But getting vengeance isn’t so easy when every attempt blows up in his face. Will Nishikata ever make Takagi blush or will he gain something more fulfilling from his bumbling attempts?
Shogakukan published the manga’s ninth compiled book volume in July 2018, and it bundled an original video anime adaptation of the manga chapter “Water Slide.” The manga’s 10th volume will shipped February 12. As of February 2018, the series has more than 4 million copies in digital sales and in print copies. Yen Press is releasing the manga in English.
