Short series to tell "after stories" of characters

The October issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine revealed on Monday that Hazuki Takeoka and Tiv's Masamune-kun's Revenge (Masamune-kun no Revenge) manga is getting a series of spinoff stories that will debut in the magazine's November issue on September 27. The new manga, titled Masamune-kun no Revenge after school, will tell "after stories" about the characters, including Masamune, Aki, and Yoshino, among others. Takeoka and Tiv are returning to write and draw the manga, respectively. Tiv posted a preview image of the new manga on Twitter on Monday, and added that the new manga will be a short series.

The main Masamune-kun's Revenge manga ended in Monthly Comic Rex in June after entering its climax in December 2016. An original anime disc (OAD) that Ichijinsha bundled with the manga's 10th volume also tells an "after story" for the manga. The OAD and the 10th volume shipped on July 27.

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. 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.
