With an anime adaptation announced recently for Masamune-kun’s Revenge, things are starting to move forward a bit more as the series has been scheduled for a January 2017 debut on Tokyo MX and more. The project has revealed its first key visual that you can see to the right as well as the staff for it. The series will be directed by Mirai Minato based on the series composition from Michiko Yokote. Yokote is working on the scripts with Kento Shimoyama while Yuki Sawairi is handling the character designs. The show is being animated by Silver Link.
The series began back in 2012 from writer Takeoka Hazuki and artist Tiv and it’s moved right along with a few volumes worth of material through Comix Rex.
Plot concept: As an overweight child, Makabe Masamune was mercilessly teased and bullied by one particular girl, Adagaki Aki. Determined to one day exact his revenge upon her, Makabe begins a rigorous regimen of self-improvement and personal transformation.
Years later, Masamune re-emerges as a new man. Handsome, popular, with perfect grades and good at sports, Masamune-kun transfers to Aki’s school, and is unrecognizable to her. Now, Masamune-kun is ready to confront the girl who bullied him so many years ago and humiliate her at last. But will revenge be as sweet as he thought?
