posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Amazon is listing the cover of the March issue of Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine, which reveals that Hazuki Takeoka and Tiv's Masamune-kun no Revenge after school (Masamune-kun's Revenge after school) — the spinoff manga of Takeoka and Tiv's Masamune-kun's Revenge manga — will end in the issue on Saturday.
Hazuki and Tiv launched the manga in Monthly Comic Rex last September. The manga tells "after stories" about the characters, including Masamune, Aki, and Yoshino, among others.
The main Masamune-kun's Revenge manga ended in Monthly Comic Rex last 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 last July.
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.
