Masamune-Kun’s Revenge Season 2: Delayed Due To Covid + Updated Release Date Revealed
Masamune-kun’s Revenge Season 2 has a new premier date!
Rom-com animes offer a touch of relatability as opposed to other genres like shonen, mystery and isekai. We get to witness stories that explore love while creating sweet memories and friendships, just like in real life.
The popularity is with the characters who find themselves in emotional situations created by comical misunderstandings thus leading to hilarious heartful storylines.
Just like each year, Winter 2017 had love in the air as the anime adaption of Hazuki Takeoka s’ manga series hit the small screen.
The story follows Masamune Makabe, who is chubby in nature but is close friends with the wealthy, beautiful girl, Aki Adagki.
Masamune helps Aki go through her parent’s divorce, while the latter helps him fight his bullies.
He begins to have feelings for her, and one fateful night, Masamune confesses, but in response, Aki berates him and calls him Pig s’ foot.
Aki is like a saviour to Masamune, but after hearing her reply to his confession, he is heartbroken.
After the heartbreak, he asks his grandfather to train him as he slims down and builds up muscle, thus turning into a handsome guy.
Seeking revenge, Masamune confronts Aki, but she doesn’t recognize the changed person and falls in love with him, causing his plan to fail.
He gets a mysterious letter from a person stating he knows his nickname, and it’s revealed to be Aki s’ classmate Yoshino Koiwai who soon becomes his ally.
Can Masamune take vengeance on his brutal childhood crush Aki is the central plot of the show.
Masamune-kun’s Revenge Season one was received with poor reviews and reactions as many found the premise of taking revenge in love as detestable.

Although the second season was already granted a release window, there has been some change due to unforeseen circumstances.
