At AnimeJapan 2022, a new trailer for the Teasing Master Takagi-san movie was unveiled today following the Takagi-san panel, where the voice actors discussed the upcoming movie, played a few games, and discussed their favorite moments from the series thus far on the expo’s Green Stage a few hours ago.

The Teasing Master Takagi-san movie’s release date in Japanese theaters date is June 10, 2022. The trailer showcases the premise of the movie — Takagi-san and Nishikata spend their summer break together, a summer that only happens once, a summer that they can never return to… as it’s the last summer they’ll ever have as middle schoolers!

You can see the trailer for yourself here:

It’ll be exciting to see the movie come out in a few months — hopefully, it’s brought internationally soon!

Is the Takagi-san movie a movie-original work?

Yes, the Takagi-san movie’s a movie-original work — the events of this were not covered in the manga or any other material! The movie seems to be an entirely original work covering a potential summer break trip and the adventures of Takagi and Nishikata throughout it. One interesting thing about this is that the current canon of the Takagi-san manga doesn’t extend this far.

Warning: Spoilers for the future of Takagi-san below! Be sure to be caught up on the side material before reading further.

This movie could potentially cover the events of how Takagi and Nishikata got together in the future, as shown in the (Former) Teasing Master Takagi-san manga. It’ll be interesting to see just what route the staff will take with the series, and whether or not the anime/movie adaptations will finally start to branch off onto their own path moving forward!

When will the movie be available internationally?

It’s a bit unclear when this movie will be available internationally, nor is there any clear precedent for past Takagi-san movies the way there is for Viz series and the like. As streaming rights for the series is currently owned by Crunchyroll, it’s safe to say that the movie will be available there at some point — most past movies from hit series are available there, such as those for My Hero and One Piece.

Versus simulcast subs, the movie should be available a few months after its premiere in Japan — we’ll be sure to keep you updated on the status of that as more news becomes available!
