The official website for the television anime of Hazuki Takeoka and Tiv‘s Masamune-kun’s Revenge (Masamune-kun no Revenge) manga has announced on Saturday that the anime will get a second season titled Masamune-kun’s Revenge R (Masamune-kun no Revenge R).
Interestingly, the announcement was accompanied by a one-minute-long trailer (below) that gives us a great look at all the main characters, including Masamune and Aki. The trailer also reveals the anime’s new logo. The website even released a comic strip on Saturday confirming the second season. The website previously released an April Fool’s comic strip on Friday, jokingly announcing a “season 3” before even revealing a “season 2”.
The anime’s plot follows the story of Masamune Makabe, who gets rejected by a girl named Aki Adagaki for being fat. Masamune was humiliated by Aki, so instead of moving on, he thinks of taking revenge on Aki. Moving forward, Masamune gets on a diet and starts working out to lose weight. Masamune completely transforms himself, and he meets Aki after some time, who fails to recognize him. So, Masamune makes Aki fall in love with him and then rejects her to take his revenge.
Anime & Manga Background
The television anime adaptation premiered in January 2017. It was streamed by both Crunchyroll and Funimation. It is exciting that Masamune-Kun’s Revenge is coming back with a second season, and one more season for the anime will be enough to adapt the rest of the manga series! However, it’s important to note that there still isn’t any release date for Season 2.
The manga series was launched in Ichijinsha‘s Monthly Comic Rex magazine in 2012 and ended in June 2018. An original anime disc (OAD) that Ichijinsha bundled with the manga’s 10th volume also tells an “after story” for the manga. Takeoka and Tiv launched the Masamune-kun no Revenge after school (Masamune-kun’s Revenge after school) spinoff manga in Monthly Comic Rex for September 2018, and ended it in January 2019.
We hope you’ve appreciated this update!
