posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Japanese publisher Ichijinsha launched a website on Thursday to announce that Hazuki Takeoka and Tiv's Masamune-kun's Revenge (Masamune-kun no Revenge) manga is getting a television anime adaptation.
Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the manga in North America, and it describes the story:
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 re-emerges 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?
Writer Takeoka and female Korean artist Tiv (Heaven's Memo Pad manga) launched the series in Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine in 2012. Ichijinsha will ship the manga's seventh compiled volume in Japan on June 27. Seven Seas released the manga's first volume in English on June 14.
