Teasing Master Takagi-San Season 3 Previous Season Recap
After the first two seasons, the third season brings us more drama between Nishikata and Takagi. The trailer showed us the duo was enjoying a summer festival. Yet the question remains, do they have what it takes to get their relationship to the next level? In case you are asking yourself that same question, we might have a few answers for you.
The first season showed the playful relationship between Nishikata and Takagi. Takagi was seen teasing and pulling pranks on Nishikata who endures all of it. It was followed by the second season which showed some major developments. We saw the duo holding hands, intentionally for the first time. The pair even went on a date!
The third season finishes on a strong note with a special White Day story which is rare to actually see on any screen. The episode starts with a reminder of Hamaguchi’s challenge to Nishikata to confess his love to Takagi on White Day. Nishikata takes the challenge to heart. He later begins to ponder on his relationship with Takagi and the nature of his feelings towards her.
The ending of the third season is truly touching in the way it depicts that Nishikata and Takagi, though never confessed their feelings verbally, are aware of it. The season was brought to a full circle and confirmed that the two are really meant to be together.
