When it comes to overall romantic, funny, and cozy anime, Teasing Master Takagi-san (Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san) is definitely on the list. It can be difficult to create an anime that is light but endearing at the same time. Here we are going to look at some anime similar to Teasing Master Takagi-San.

Takagi-san embodies childhood romance and has funny and relatable characters. Although we never saw such a smart classmate as Takagi-san in our childhood, we can still be fans. The anime had Takagi-san constantly teasing the other lead, Nishikata, and yet he was also lighthearted. Despite the teasing, it was still funny and fun, as the secret behind it was her crush on him. Now here are a few shows that have endearing characters, a good story, and the kind of romance that can give us heartfelt eyes.

1. Kimi ni Todoke (From me to you)

We start strong. Kimi ni Todoke is forever classic and remains one of the best shōjo romances. It was released in 2006 and ran until 2017. Two anime seasons were also made, in 2009 and 2011 respectively. Production IG did a fantastic job with the animation, and it was both modern and nostalgic. Kimi ni Todoke told the story of 15-year-old Sawako Kuronuma and her journey from being ostracized in the classroom to being loved. Due to her resemblance to the ghost of The Ring, she was often feared and misunderstood. However, she was a nice girl who just wanted to help. But being alone for so long has made finding friends difficult.

3. Gekkan Shōjo Nozaki-kun (Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun)

Here is a personal favorite. Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun is a romantic comedy but focuses more on comedy. It tells the story of high school student Chiyo Sakura and her crush on her classmate Umetarou Nozaki. She will confess, but he takes her for a fan and gives her an autograph. When she clarifies and says she wants to be with him, he invites her to his house. It was then that Chiyo realized that Nozaki was actually an anonymous but popular shōjo manga artist working under the pen name Sakiko Yumeno. She agrees to be his assistant and thus begins a funny and sometimes romantic story.

4. Tzurezure Children (Tsuredure Children)

Children’s Tsurure follows several high school students and their love lives. Everyone has different personalities and situations, but in the end, it comes down to how hard it is to say “I love you.” Although it may feel like an anthology, the students are all connected to each other in some way. It’s a nice and fun watch, with lots of interesting characters.
