Shogakukan’s Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine’s September issue, which was released on Aug 12, 2023, came with disheartening news for all Teasing Master Takagi-San manga readers.
As per the announcement, it has been revealed that Soichiro Yamamoto’s Teasing Master Takagi-San manga will conclude in the November issue of the magazine, which will release on Oct 12, 2023, after 10 years of serialization since its debut in 2013.
The announcement is accompanied by a heartfelt plea to the readers, urging them to stay with the characters until the very end of the story.
“Please watch over the two characters until the very end“.
Teasing Master Takagi-san is a Japanese manga written by Soichiro Yamamoto. The series began serialization in Shogakukan’s shonen manga magazine supplement Monthly Shonen Sunday Mini on June 12, 2013, and then it moved to the main Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine on July 12, 2016.
As of March 2023, it has been collected in nineteen tankobon volumes.
MAL describes the plot of the manga as:
With a smirk, the mischievous middle school boy Nishikata glances over at Takagi, the girl seated next to him in class. He has just devised a master plan to finally get back at her for all the merciless teasing inflicted upon him. As he is about to set his plan into motion, Takagi intervenes with a single comment that halts Nishikata right in his tracks. She had turned the tables on him yet again.
“If you blush, you lose.” That has been the unwritten rule set between the two ever since they encountered one another in middle school. Day after day, loss after loss, Nishikata strives to see Takagi red with embarrassment, but his futile attempts are only met by further ridicule. Beyond this vicious cycle of trying to outwit one another, will their relationship ever evolve?
