Here is the series synopsis from MAL:
“If you blush, you lose.””If you blush, you lose.”
Living by this principle, the middle schooler Nishikata gets constantly made fun of by his seat neighbor Takagi-san. With his pride shattered to pieces, he vows to turn the tables and get back at her some day. And so, he attempts to tease her day after day, only to find himself victim to Takagi-san’s ridicule again sooner than later. Will he be able to make Takagi-san blush from embarrassment even once in the end?
A third season and anime film of Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san is in production, with the TV anime set to air in January 2022 and the film releasing sometime in 2022.
