Teasing Master Takagi-san Season 2’s Biggest Unanswered Questions

WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Season 2 of Teasing Master Takagi-san, now streaming on Netflix.

It's been two years since Season 2 of Teasing Master Takagi-san wrapped up, and ever since, fans have waited with bated breath to see what happens next. Takagi and Nishikata's ongoing competition to embarrass each other led to some massive progress towards the romantic, but there are still certain mysteries that were left dangling in front of audiences at the end of the season. With the debut of Season 3 on the horizon, here are a few of the most tantalizing questions Season 2 left behind for fans of the anime.

How Did Takagi Change Her Appearance?

In Episode 2, Nishikata tried to pull a fast one on Takagi by challenging her to spot the difference in his appearance. While he thought that he would stump her, since all he did was cut a bit of his hair, Takagi used her usual mind tricks to intuit his deceptive ploy. Turning the joke around, she told him that she was going to subtly change her appearance the next day for him to guess the difference.

Though it's never shown how she altered her looks, one can't help but guess what the change was. Did she put on lip gloss to make him panic over her shiny lips? Did she put in color contacts to get him to blush while looking into her eyes? Knowing Takagi's sly ways, she's sure to have come up with an answer that would end in a pyrrhic victory, even if Nishikata was right.

Were the Chocolates In Nishikata's Locker From Takagi?

Nishikata spent most of Valentine's Day agonizing over the possibility of receiving chocolates from Takagi, unsure how he would react to them. After finding chocolates in his locker after school, he panicked, thinking that they were a secret confession of love from Takagi. However, he dismissed his fears shortly after once she showed up and gave him some friendship chocolates directly. Of course, this still leaves the question as to who actually left the chocolates in the locker.

Despite Nishikata brushing off the condundrum, signs do still point to Takagi, as she previously told a classmate that she had delivered hers that morning in some sneaky way. If that were the case, that would mean that she prepared decoy chocolates to give him afterward. While it would be an impressive maneuver, her embarrassment at giving them to Nishikata directly might mean that she's not as cool-headed as she appears.

What Does the Flash Forward to an Older Takagi Mean?

When Takagi and Nishikata's class go camping, Nishikata tries to embarrass Takagi by making a creepy hand behind her back in the class photo. As always, Takagi intercepts his ploy, making a funny face and causing him to laugh as the camera goes off. Aside from the cuteness of the moment itself, viewers were given a curious glimpse into the future, as the scene transitioned to a brown-haired woman staring at the picture. Based on facial features and context, it's easy to guess that this person is an older Takagi. Even so, her appearance seems to point to something happening in the future. Why exactly is future Takagi reminiscing on this particular photo of her and her first love? What do the years in between have in store for them?

Will Nishikata and Takagi Ever Admit Their Feelings For Each Other?

Season 2 closed out on some momentous firsts. Even though he wouldn't admit it, Nishikata and Takagi went on their first date to the summer festival. There was also movement in their physical relationship, as it was the first time that they intentionally held hands. On top of the finale, the season as a whole was filled with teasers underlining the fact that there are mutual romantic feelings between the pair. Be that as it may, there's still no clear indication that either Nishikata or Takagi will confess their feelings to the other any time soon. Still, considering the forward momentum of events, perhaps one of them will finally make a move in the upcoming Season 3.

When/Where Will Season 3 Be Available?

With all these questions still hanging from Season 2, it's understandable why fans are eager for Season 3 to begin. Season 3 has been announced for January 2022, but no official date has been released at this time. Furthermore, the fact that Crunchyroll, Funimation and Netflix all have different parts of the series makes it unclear what streaming service will provide it when it does air. Nevertheless, given the demand across platforms for the series, it seems likely that the next season will be localized at some point in the near future.
