The cover of this year's August issue of Comic REX, which will be out on June 27, 2016, will be revealing that manga Masamune-kun no Revenge (Masamune-kun's Revenge) will get a TV anime adaptation. The official website for the TV anime has also been launched.

Synopsis
As a child, Masamune Makabe once suffered greatly at the hands of a wealthy and beautiful girl named Aki Adagaki, who nicknamed him "Piggy" due to his chubby appearance. Seeking revenge against his tormentor, Masamune works hard to improve himself and returns as an incredibly handsome, albeit narcissistic, high school student. When he encounters Aki once again, he is prepared to exact vengeance.

With the aid of the rich girl's maid, Yoshino Koiwai, Masamune slowly begins to build his relationship with Aki, intending to break her heart when the time is right. However, as his friendship with Aki begins to grow, Masamune starts to question the objectives of his devious plans, and if bringing them to fruition is what his heart truly desires.

The series is written by Hazuki Takeoka and drawn by Piv. It currently has six volumes published, with the 7th volume schedule to ship in Japan on June 27. The series has been publishing in English as Masamune-kun's Revenge by Seven Seas Entertainment since June 14, 2016.

Haven't caught up with this in a while, liked what I read so far, cute and with a great art style. I'm interested.

I read the manga. Don't expect much unless they make some huge anime original changes. Its fairly good premise is wasted by all the non-plot progression and ecchi overusage. Even has some slight harem elements. But to be fair, the harem is like Yamada and 7 Witches where even though the MC is surrounded with women, only 2 are potentially serious partners. So not too many annoying harem hi-jinxes. Also, the MC is rather likable for once (at least in the beginning).

Huh, another manga I've had on PTR since forever ago, guess I might just wait for the anime instead then

Funny you mention that, it was this news that made me start to read the manga, since that Aki Key visual look so damm adorable and cute.

Now that I have caught up with the releases... I have really mixed feelings about that the path they will take later on, alot of people will be pissed of middle ways for sure. Glad the plot got over that stupid BS.

i read this the day after i read the latest chapter and think that sht just got real

I'm cool with the premise but it looks sticky. Based on my knowledge of romcoms, i really don't like where i think this is going. If he goes through with it and crushes her then i'm onboard, but if he just hears a cheap sob story and forgives her with rainbow and butterfly then I'll save myself the disappointment. I try my best to stay clear of things that i know will just piss me off.

Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes YES.

I knew this was coming with the way the manga has been going.

I just hope they pick good VA's and a decent studio.

But wow, this is amazing. Definitely hyped.

WARNING..!!!
THE HEROINE IS ONE OF THE WORST TSUNDERE CHARACTERS EVER!!!
she's up there with Kirino and Taiga..
but the manga is kinda fine overall..hope J.C Staff will do it..


I'm sorry to say that I don't trust the idiotic judgement of a person who thinks that Taiga was a terrible tsundere character. She was fantastic and
hhmmm............'kay.

"Drawn by Piv "
You sure it's not Tiv ?

Nice. I was planning to read this one for a while now. Guess I'll either wait for the anime or start reading it soon.

I can't imagine an anime sticking to having a narcissistic asshole of an MC, despite that being a very interesting direction to take when 95% of anime now consist of a one dimensional, bland, harem protagonist. It'd be really cool, but I see this becoming Charlotte. *into the trash it goes*

but i think they should instead made Tomo-can bla bla bla (i forget the name). i heard it's really popular right now as a drama manga series. i'm planning tor read it too xD

You mean Tomo-chan wa onna no ko? It's not really a drama series but more like a very entertaining short series to read (It's like 1 page chapters every week or something). Def recommend tho.

yeah...i'm planning to read it. i thought it was a drama series. but romcom still looks awsome to me. on top of that, i already put ma attention on the MC girl ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Did not see this coming at all. I guess it's good now that the manga is finally getting somewhere with its plot though.
