Teasing Master Takagi-san is based on a manga, written and illustrated by Sōichirō Yamamoto who has also penned In the Heart of Kunoichi Tsubaki and When Will Ayumu Make His Move? The first chapter of Teasing Master Takagi-san came out in 2013 and was marketed as a shonen. So far, there are 17 volumes and, as the manga is still ongoing, we can expect more teasing to come! Of these volumes, 15 are already translated or forthcoming in English, while the rest will surely follow soon.

Apart from the main manga, there are three spin-offs: Tomorrow is Saturday, which was incorporated within the anime adaptation, Yukari-chan in Love with Love (2017-20) and Teasing Master (Former) Takagi-san. The latter takes us into the main characters' future, where Takagi and Nishikata are in their 20s, have gotten married, and have a daughter, Chii, who follows her mother's footsteps in becoming the next teasing master!

While more chapters of the main Teasing Master Takagi-san are likely to come out, Season 3 might still be the last as the main characters' relationship is developing fast, suggesting the possibility of closure. This is not to say that we can't expect some OVA or special episodes based on new chapters. In the meantime, we've gathered a list of 10 anime similar to Teasing Master Takagi-san that you should start watching.
