Both are jerks though felt bad for Futuba. Even klutz girl is unlikable - this all somehow makes the show more appealing as you want them to try and screw each other over in a battle where there can only be losers.

And this series is officially brought to you by Schadenfreude

Seems like the kind of show where everyone is going to be revealed having some critical personality flaw leading to their own consternation. Psycho maido looks like trouble, few things are as scary as someone who's both duty-bound and resentful.

I don't think that Masamune is that bad. I mean he is nice to most people, and he even liked the thought of going out with Futaba, he just weighed his revenge against Aki higher. He helped out Yoshino. His thoughts about what if people knew that he used to be fat should be an indication of how he was treated by other kids when he was young and his only friend was Aki. He liked Aki a lot and even so she betrayed him, so it became kind of a traumatic experience for him. I find it pretty interesting honestly, because he is deep down a nice person and a good friend, but at the same time he is haunted by what Aki did to him.

Indeed but it's hard to like someone who is at the core driven by mostly a lust for revenge, to extent he's using deceit willingly to get it. I don't hate any of the characters even Aki but I don't like them either, this is problematic - shows like Re-Zero had an arguably unlikable MC who had a heart of gold underneath but his surrounding cast were appealing to balance him out... Not the case her as Masamune, Aki or that pschycho attendant of hers - who are we meant to root for?

Ahhh, looks like mez forgets to post on this show.

Is good; other then wondering about dub, not much q on the show. A bit melodramatic yes but good... at least if ur into the like.


BTW, for all the noobs here wondering why u should "care about a show based upon "revenge"; why don't u take off ur liberal micro-aggression panties, and observe the truth....

Personally, I like having a protag who isn't perfect. I can get behind that type of main character way more than I care about someone who has no flaws. Better yet, main characters with nasty goals are a nice change of pace for me. I've gotten sick of the generic shonen protag. In this case, I can still root for Masamune because no matter how awful his goal is, Aki is an even more horrible person who deserves anything she gets.

Someone missed a key plot point about the girl having a serious (potentially lethal) pre-existing health condition.......

She certainly isn't a bad person because of her health condition or because of how much she eats. It's the way she treats others. (And whatever problems she's going through don't excuse her going out of her way to publicly humiliate people.)

So let me get this straight. When we get another run of the mill romcom *cough* Nisekoi *cough* with your typical dense male protag who still panics over grade school things like indirect kisses, female leads that have no problem with dishing out physical AND verbal abuse, people praise the ever loving crap out of it due to all the "moe factor"

But when we get characters that actually think and act closer to what they're representing (aka high schoolers), we call it "unlikable characters: the anime?"

With the notable exception of Aki (which for now I agree is inexcusably hate-worthy), I found the characters in this anime to be much more representative of high schoolers than most other rom com anime. Maybe y'all forgot what puberty was, but last time I checked, teenagers ARE vain, plot petty revenge schemes, and overthink even the tiniest details in their everyday lives. While they might feel a bit awkward about talking about dating, I don't recall ever knowing a teenager irl that had too much difficulty asking someone out, which, surprise surprise, is actually shown in this anime.

It's such a disservice to portray teenagers in anime as these socially inept things (Nisekoi, Infinite stratos, over 80% of rom coms), rather than what they actually are: social, smart, but ultimately flawed, naive people still finding out who they are and what their place is in the world.

Now will this anime be good in the long run? I can't say for now, but its characters are definitely far from being unlikable, especially in comparison to its contemporaries.
