posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The June issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine revealed on Friday that Hazuki Takeoka and Tiv's Masamune-kun's Revenge (Masamune-kun no Revenge) manga will end in three chapters, including the chapter in the June issue. If there are no delays, the manga will end in the August issue when it ships on June 27.
The issue also stated that the original anime disc (OAD) that Ichijinsha will bundle with the manga's 10th volume will tell an "after story" for the manga. The OAD and the 10th volume will ship on July 27.
The manga entered its climax in December 2016.
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 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.
