Rui Tsukishima (model for Shueisha’s Seventeen magazine, guest actor in Kamen Rider Geats) and teenager Sōya Kurokawa (Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Monster) play Takagi and Nishikata, respectively. The live-action series was filmed entirely on location in Kagawa Prefecture’s Shōdo Island, the setting of the previous anime adaptation.
Rikiya Imaizumi (live-action Hōzuki-san Chi no Aneki, Chihiro-san, Just Only Love) is directing and co-writing the script with Tomoki Kanazawa (Sanctuary, Sabakan) and Jun Hagimori (Sabakan). TBS co-produced with FINE Entertainment.
The film will premiere on Netflix every Tuesday next March, with an international release expected. The series will also air as part of TBS’ Drama Stream programming block in March on Tuesdays at 11:58 p.m. (actually Wednesdays at 12:58 a.m. JST).
Yen Press is releasing the manga in English and describes the story:
High school student Nishikata had it out with his classmate sitting nearby, Takagi. Day after day, she chased him with all kinds of tricks and jokes. Even when he tries to tease her, she is always one step ahead but he will not give up easily in this battle between cunning and youth!
Yamamoto launched the manga in Gessan mini, a companion volume in Shogakukan’s Gessan (Monthly Shonen Sunday) magazine, in 2013. After Yamamoto completed serialization of his Fudatsuki no Kyōko-chan manga in Gessan in June 2016 , Tease Master Takagi-san moved to Gessan in July 2016. The manga ended publication on October 12.
The manga has also inspired three television anime seasons and an anime film.
