Takagi-San Season 4: Renewal Status + Release Date Predictions
Takagi-san Season 4, will it ever happen?
Who does not love a good rom-com slice-of-life anime, especially when two characters with contrasting personalities get along?
Series like Uzaki-chan, Komi Can’t Communicate, Don’t Toy With Me Miss Nagatoro, and The Duke of Death and His Maid are critically acclaimed for perfectly featuring the introvert-extrovert trope.
Such series have remained fan favorites each year, and Winter 2018 was no different as the anime adaption of Sōichirō Yamamoto hit the small screens.
The story follows middle schooler classmates Nishikata and Takagi, who sit next to each other in class.
Takagi enjoys spending her free time teasing Nishikata with jokes and pranks. On the other hand, Nishikata is constantly embarrassed by Takagi s’ teasing and often finds himself blushing after one of her mischiefs.
Despite Takagi s’ constant ridicule, Nishikata is determined to beat Takagi at her own game. He is serious about his goal and even punishes himself when he fails.
However, most of Nishikata s’ attempts result in failure as Takagi is far more knowledgeable of his plans.
Due to Nishikata’s facial expressions and mannerisms, she can easily read his mind and follow up on what he sees, does, and thinks.
Although Takagi is known to strike first and strike back quickly, she can fake her emotions and mask her problems, even faking the joy of laughing and insulting Nishikata’s failures and mistakes.
Can the committed Nishikata give Takagi a taste of her own medicine and make her blush out of embarrassment is the central plot of the show.
Teasing Master Takagi-san has been a massive success since its debut in 2018, and consequently, fans are wondering, after the conclusion of the third season, if a fourth installment is on the cards or not.
To find the answer, keep scrolling as we bring you all the latest news and updates on Takagi-san Season 4.
Takagi-san is rated 7.7/10 and ranked #1178 with 560k members on MyAnimeList
WHAT IS THE TEASING MASTER TAKAGI-SAN SEASON 4 RELEASE DATE?
Takagi-san season one aired from 18th January 2018 to 12th July 2018 for 12 episodes. The series was renewed for a second season which aired from 7th July 2019 to 22nd September 2019 for 12 episodes.
Takagi-san season three ran from 8th January 2022 to 26th March 2022 for 12 episodes.
As of writing, there is no update from studio Shin-Ei Animation on the renewal of Takagi-san Season 4.
|Takagi-san Season 1||18th January 2018|
|Takagi-san Season 2||7th July 2019|
|Takagi-san Season 3||8th January 2022|
|Takagi-san Season 4||Yet to be Announced|
Production studios consider various commercial and financial metrics before announcing a renewal.
As mentioned earlier, Takagi-san has been well-received in all its past three seasons by the fans.
The series has been so popular that the creators announced the third season and movie at the same time.
Speaking of the third season, just like the past two installments, the IMDB user episode ratings were highly positive.
|Takagi-san Episode 1||8.2|
|Takagi-san Episode 2||8.3|
|Takagi-san Episode 3||8.1|
|Takagi-san Episode 4||8.1|
|Takagi-san Episode 5||8.3|
|Takagi-san Episode 6||9.4|
|Takagi-san Episode 7||7.8|
|Takagi-san Episode 8||8.0|
|Takagi-san Episode 9||9.1|
|Takagi-san Episode 10||8.0|
|Takagi-san Episode 11||8.8|
|Takagi-san Episode 12||9.1|
The profit lines are also good, as the movie collected $1 million in its opening week in Japan.
It became the 6th highest in gross, which is incredible considering big hitters like Demon Slayer/One Piece/Makoto Shinkai can skew the perception with their mega collections. Overall, the movie grossed $3.13 million.
If we include merchandise, game, and disc sales, the creators should not be worried about profitability as there is a substantial audience for a new season.
While the ratings and reviews are positive, a crucial factor for renewal will be the availability of studio and source material.
Studio Shin-Ei Animation is one of the oldest production houses and has been in the industry for the past 46 years.
Currently, only two projects, i.e., The Dangers in My Heart and Mr. Villians s’ Day Off, are listed as part of the release schedule.
Source material should not be an issue as more than six volumes are available to produce Takagi-san Season 4.
All in All, we can expect the Teasing Master Takagi-san season 4 trailer and Teasing Master Takagi-san season 4 release date by the Summer of 2024.

TAKAGI-SAN SEASON 4 PLOT
In the finale of Takagi-san Season 3, “March 14th”, Nishikata contemplates what Hamaguchi said while he and Takagi are heading back home together.
The following day, as Nishikata readies for a complex White Day challenge, Takagi lets him know that she will be going to a relative s’ wedding function on Walk 13. On White Day, after he gets the challenge underway, Nishikata gets an instant message from Takagi saying she probably will not return until the next day.
In the meantime, in the class, Mina finds one of the containers for the challenge after Takao and Kimura coincidentally uproot it.
In that capacity, she, Yukari, and Sanae wind up doing the challenge, all things being equal. During library obligation, Kimura gives Nishikata a book similar to one Takagi recently read.
After school, Hamaguchi gets together with Hojo, and he backs down from admitting his sentiments to her, causing her a deep sense of frustration.
When Nishikata understands every one of the times Takagi was being straightforward with him while perusing the book, he runs out of his home to see her.
When he finally does follow a long chase, he tells her he wants to see her, much to her delight.
The first three seasons appeared to be a teasing turmoil for our two protagonists, but Takagi-san Season 4 could be the final draw wherein they both confess their true feelings.
Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san Season 4 characters will experience a new level of friendship and love.
Meanwhile, Hamaguchi could prevail over Hibino also. It’ll be intriguing to see what their association means for their school life, despite the fact that fans can expect them to be prodded by their classmates.
