Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san Synopsis
Grinning from ear to ear, mischievous high school boy Nishikata looks 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 taunts she has inflicted on him. When he’s 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 more. “If you blush, you lose.” That has been the unwritten rule established between the two since they met in high school. Day after day, defeat after defeat, Nishikata struggles to see Takagi red with shame, but his vain attempts are only met with more taunting. Beyond this vicious cycle of trying to outwit the other, will your relationship evolve?
