The official website for the television anime of Hazuki Takeoka and Tiv's Masamune-kun's Revenge (Masamune-kun no Revenge) manga announced additional cast for the anime on Tuesday:

Yui Ogura as Kinue Hayase, Masamune's doting mother who looks like a young girl, but is actually 42 years old. She worries about Masamune becoming thin.

Asuka Ōgame as Chinatsu Hayase, Masamune's second-year middle school younger sister who loves her brother and often goes to his room to meddle.

In addition, the show has cast Mariya Ise as Sonoka Kaneko, Kanae Itō as Kikune Kiba, and Satomi Satou as Mari Mizuno. The three characters are admirers of Aki, idolizing her intelligence and beauty, and often act like her bodyguards.

In addition, the site announced that the AT-X channel will get its own original footage for the ending credits sequence, and an extra program after each episode titled "Honmono no Ojō-sama wa Dare da?! Ojō-sama Kakuzuke Check" (Who is the Real Lady?! Lady Ranking Check). The extra program will feature Aki and the female cast trying different types of gourmet food and judging which is best.

The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX on January 5, and will also air on the AT-X,BS Fuji, Sun TV, and KBS Kyoto channels.

The site previously streamed a promotional video for the anime in October.

The cast includes:

Natsuki Hanae as Masamune Makabe

Ayaka Ohashi as Aki Adagaki

Inori Minase as Yoshino Koiwai

Suzuko Mimori as Neko Fujinomiya

Azusa Tadokoro as Tae Futaba

Saori Hayami as Kojūrō Shuri

Ohashi will perform the anime's opening theme as her character Aki Adagaki. ChouCho (Hyōka, Girls und Panzer) will perform the ending theme song. The CD single for the ending theme song is slated to ship on February 15.

Mirai Minato (Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya) is directing the series at Silver Link. Michiko Yokote (Shirobako, ReLIFE, Dagashi Kashi) is supervising the show's scripts, and is also penning them alongside Kento Shimoyama (Good Luck Girl!, Servant × Service, Shomin Sample). Yuki Sawairi (Yurikuma Arashi, Girl Friend BETA animation director) is designing the characters for animation. Toshiki Kameyama (KanColle, Kiznaiver) is in charge of sound direction. Lantis is credited as music producer.

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 shipped the manga's seventh compiled volume in Japan on June 27. Seven Seas released the manga's second volume in English on September 13.
