Masamune-kun no Revenge | Vol. 1 Cover

Japanese publisher Ichijinsha has announced that the Masamune-kun no Revenge manga would be receiving a television anime adaptation. A website was launched to make the announcement.

Masamune-kun no Revenge is a manga series written by Hazuki Takeoka and illustrated by Tiv. The manga was launched in Ichijinsha’s Monthly Comic Rex magazine in 2012.

The manga is licensed for release in the west by Seven Seas Entertainment. Seven Seas Entertainment released volume 1 of the manga on June 14.  The series is described as follows:

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 reemerges 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?

More information about the anime adaptation will be released at a later date.
