Synopsis for Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san
Grinning from ear to ear, mischievous high school boy Nishikata glances at Takagi, the girl sitting next to him in class. He has just devised a master plan to finally get revenge on her for all the ruthless teasing he has inflicted on her. As he is about to put his plan into action, Takagi chimes in with a single comment that stops Nishikata in his tracks. She has turned the tables once again. “If you blush, you lose.” That has been the unwritten rule established between the two ever since they met in high school. Day after day, defeat after defeat, Nishikata strives to see Takagi turn red with embarrassment, but his futile attempts only result in more taunts. Beyond this vicious circle of trying to outwit each other, will their relationship evolve?
