Announcement video for Masamune-kun’s Revenge R:
The first season ran for twelve episodes in 2017, with an OAD released in 2018. The original Masamune-kun’s Revenge manga is serialized in Ichijinsha’s Monthly Comic REX shōnen manga magazine, and an English language version is also available from Seven Seas Entertainment. The first anime season of Masamune-kun’s Revenge was directed by Mirai Minato with animation production by Silver Link. Crunchyroll describes the story as follows:
“I’ve returned to this town for revenge!” Eight years ago, Makabe Masamune, a weak and chubby boy, was harshly rejected by the beautiful Adagaki Aki. Now, he’s lost a ton of weight, changed his name, and returned as a handsome teenage boy… all to make the “Brutal Princess” Aki fall in love with him so that he can reject her just as harshly as she did.
