I’m not often up-to-date on newer anime, but I did enjoy watching Masamune-Kun’s Revenge a few months ago. If you are into comedy series with some non-gushy romance, then this is the show for you! Mostly, what makes the show fun to watch is Masamune pretending to be the hottest thing on the block, only to panic when a girl speaks to him. He isn’t very good at articulating himself around the opposite sex–something I definitely experienced when I was his age.

The main premise of the anime, though, is vengeance.

Masamune Makabe, a high schooler with a huge ego, wants to win over the affection of Aki Adagaki for (get ready) revenge! Yes, he wants to date her and then break up with her in a humiliating way. Why? Because she made fun of him when he was younger. Masamune was an overweight boy who Aki mockingly called “pig’s foot,” so when he got older he worked out and ate healthier in order to have a stronger, more toned body. His new physique eventually goes to his head, causing him to think himself the hottest guy in school–a persona he flaunts with a smile. When Masamune discovers that Aki Adagki, the girl who rejects and humiliates any guy that attempts to ask her out, is the same girl that persecuted him in the past, he wants revenge.

Not only does he change his name so she won’t recognize him, but he also begins trying to seduce her so he can later dump her and disgrace her in front of the school. By doing this, Masamune believes he’ll get payback and force Aki to experience the same humiliation that she put him and others through.
