The trailers for this show feel more like short episodes than the typical promo reel. I’m okay with that.
Earlier today, the official Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san (Takagi-san, the Master of Teasing) anime website updated with a new key visual and a trailer, as well as the show’s premiere schedule. We break the details down below.
The two-minute teaser features Nishikata, who finds himself walking home with Takagi-san in the rain. They share a short conversation before the video cuts to a more traditional promotional trailer format.
The video reveals Yuiko Ōhara’s opening theme song for the show, Iwanai kedo ne, which is used as a background track.
The new visual features Takagi-san and Nishikata standing by the side of the road. Nishikata is wearing his usual nonplussed expression, while Takagi-san smiles at his reaction.
The series will begin airing on Tokyo MX on January 8. The full schedule is as follows:
- Tokyo MX: 1/8/2018 at 23:00 (1/8/2018 at 11:00PM)
- Yomiuri TV: 1/8/2018 at 25:59 (1/9/2018 at 1:59AM)
- BS11: 1/9/2018 at 25:30 (1/10/2018 at 1:30AM)
