Plot Summary


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.

I think we should use Stark's forum as he posted it before SageNaruto.

Episode 1

Masamune sure has changed from the chubby self there, and the way he is avoiding all those high-calorie foods is pretty funny. Anyway, that was pretty much what I was expecting to see as Aki sure does have a nasty side to her, and Masamune has manned up to one day get his revenge to make her experience heartbreak. Pretty solid start so far as a lot of intrigue has been laid down. And that it wouldn't surprise me to see Kojuurou showing up dressed as a girl at some point in this show.

Art style reminds me of a cross between Phantom World and When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace so that's a plus in my book as both series were nicely illustrated/animated. Just without that extra layer of softedges/blur and glow efffects which Phantom World had. Kojuurou is pretty much Hatoko with a haircut so if we get a epic 3 minute rant again in some episode, this show is perfect.

Pretty faithful to the manga so far.

They adapted this scene as well, which was somewhat iconic for the start

Pretty good so far! I know it's just a translation thing but in the manga his nickname was "piggy" - I like that better than "pigs foot"...it just sounds better. That's my only gripe.

I want to like this one, and will stick with it probably for at least a while longer, but for whatever reason Aki is striking me as one of the most disagreeable heroines I've encountered. I don't usually have too strong of a reaction to anime characters, whether good or bad (or hero or villain), but I've got this visceral dislike of her this time. Presumably she's somehow really not that bad underneath, if this is going to be a rom com.

(Incidentally, it is literally "pigs foot," his nickname. 豚足)

Episode 1

Masamune's Revenge is about a narcissistically misguided fuccboi's predictable revenge plan that is full of idiocy and miscommunication.

For now, I hate these characters. All of them have a cynical front about them and are presented in an unlikable fashion. The point is to get revenge, but predictability is not subtle here as we all probably know what's going to happen in the end.

The series is stated as a RomCom, so I could be wrong. This could very well end up like Toratora where some of the characters were unlikable, but ended up turning into better people.

If that's what Masamune's Revenge is going for, then I'm interested. Execution will play a major factor, though.
