Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro – Episode 1
In the first episode of Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro, we are introduced to our protagonist, a shy and introverted girl who goes to the same high school as Nagatoro. Nagatoro is a popular girl in school who loves to tease and play with our protagonist. Throughout the episode, we see Nagatoro slowly break down the walls that our protagonist has built up, and by the end of the episode, the two have become friends.
Nagatoro is a student at a local high school. She loves to tease and bully her senpai, a shy and introverted boy who she’s developed a crush on. While her behavior might seem mean, Nagatoro is actually just trying to get closer to him.
In the first episode of Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro, we are introduced to Nagatoro and her victim, Senpai. We see how Nagatoro teases Senpai mercilessly, but also how she seems to genuinely care for him. While their relationship is off to a rocky start, it’s clear that there’s something there.
Miss Nagatoro’s Teasing
In the first episode of Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro, we are introduced to Miss Nagatoro, a girl who loves to tease and make fun of her shy classroom neighbor, our protagonist.
Miss Nagatoro is outgoing and brash, while our protagonist is introverted and sensitive. Throughout the episode, we see Miss Nagatoro go out of her way to embarrass and humiliate her shy classmate. She drawing mustaches on his face while he’s sleeping, putting gum in his hair, and kicking him when he’s down.
Despite all the pain she causes him, our protagonist can’t help but be drawn to Miss Nagatoro’s free spirit and carefree attitude. In the end, he even goes so far as to give her a nickname: “Naga-chan.”
Our Heroine’s Reaction
Nagatoro is a freshman in high school who loves to troll her older senpai. She finds joy in making his life miserable and loves to see him squirm. In this episode, we see our heroine’s reaction to her senpai’s hobby.
The Development of Their Relationship
Nagatoro is always bullying Senpai, but deep down she really does care for him—it just takes a while for her to come around.
In the first episode, “First Impressions,” we see Nagatoro’s initial interactions with Senpai. She comes across him doodling in his notebook and immediately pounces, trying to get a rise out of him. When that doesn’t work, she starts playing games with him and trying to trip him up.
Throughout all of this, we can see that Nagatoro is actually paying close attention to Senpai. She memorizes his schedule, knows his favorite foods, and even knows how he likes his coffee. All of this knowledge comes in handy when she’s trying to tease him—she knows exactly which buttons to push.
At the end of the episode, Nagatoro finally gets Senpai to react to her teasing. He yells at her and tells her to leave him alone. But instead of backing down, Nagatoro only smiles wider. She’s finally gotten under his skin, and we can see that she’s pleased with herself.
This first episode sets up the development of their relationship nicely. We can see that Nagatoro is slowly but surely breaking down Senpai’s barriers. With each interaction, she gets just a little bit closer to him—and it’s clear that she enjoys doing it.
More Teasing from Miss Nagatoro
In the first episode of Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro, we are introduced to our heroine, a junior high school girl who loves teasing and bullying her shy classmate, our protagonist. While walking home from school, Nagatoro sees our protagonist reading a book by himself and decides to start teasing him. She calls him a geek and a nerd and threatens to tell everyone at school about his hobbies. Our protagonist is too shy to stand up for himself, so he just takes the abuse.
But when Nagatoro starts picking on him in front of his friends, he finally snaps and tells her off. Nagatoro is surprised that he has the courage to stand up to her, and she starts to respect him a little bit. From then on, their relationship starts to change from one of victim and bully to one of friendly teasing.
Our Heroine’s Resolve
Nagatoro is always finding ways to tease and bully her senpai at school. But after seeing how kind he is to a younger student, she realizes that maybe she’s been wrong about him this whole time…
The Conclusion of Episode 1
Nagatoro and her friends’ plot to embarrass Sorase finally comes to fruition. In the classroom, while Nagatoro is pretending to be absorbed in her phone, her friend passes her a note asking “Do you like Senpai?”. When Sorase sees this, she tries to play it cool and act like she doesn’t know what they’re talking about, but Nagatoro knows better.
The girls corner Sorase after school and ask her again if she likes Senpai. When Sorase says yes, they ask her what kind of relationship she wants with him. Sorase, feeling backed into a corner, can only stammer out an answer about wanting to be friends.
Nagatoro and her friends are not satisfied with this answer. They decide to “help” Sorase by giving her a makeover and sending her into Senpai’s house to confess her love for him.
Sorase is mortified by this plan, but Nagatoro is adamant that it will work. She drags Sorase along with her to buy some new clothes and makeup, then brings her over to Senpai’s house and tells her to go in and confess.
Sorase is too terrified to do anything, so Nagatoro ends up going in herself. She tells Senpai that Sorase likes him and wants to be friends with him, but she also wanted to tell him something else… that she (Nagatoro) likes him too!
