The upcoming TV anime Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san (Takagi-san is good at teasing), based on the manga of the same name by Soichiro Yamamoto, has released a trailer and key visual.
The trailer depicts a sweet-yet-teasing exchange between the titular Takagi and her classmate Nishikata on a rainy day. You can also hear part of the opening theme ‘Iwanai kedo ne’ by Yuiko Ohara. A short version of the song was released on iTunes on 9 December. A key visual was also released, which depicts Takagi and Nishikata on their way to school.
The anime will start airing on 8 January during the ‘Anime no me’ slot on Tokyo MX, Yomiuri TV, and BS11. There will also be a radio program broadcast on the online radio station Onsen starting from January. It will feature Takagi’s voice actress Rie Takahashi as the host and will be titled ‘Karakai Jouzu no Taka’hashi’-san.’ A preview version will be made available on 20 December.
Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san is currently being published in Shogakukan’s Monthly Shonen Sunday. It is a youthful romantic comedy about the ordeals of middle schooler Nishikata, who is at the mercy of the insinuating words of his classmate Takagi
