The April issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine is revealing on Tuesday that Hazuki Takeoka and Tiv's Masamune-kun's Revenge (Masamune-kun no Revenge) manga will get an original anime disc. The magazine's next issue in March will reveal more details about the anime.

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, and the manga is headed toward its climax. Ichijinsha shipped the manga's ninth compiled volume in Japan on February 5. Seven Seas released the manga's seventh volume in English on January 23.

The manga inspired a television anime adaptation that premiered in January 2017. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan and Funimation streamed an English dub.
