Ichijinsha’s Comix Rex shared new info about the upcoming Masamune-kun’s Revenge original anime disc (OAD).
The episode will be an epilogue that takes place after the manga’s final chapter, which will be published on June 27. It will be bundled with the manga’s 10th volume, which will ship on July 27. Ichijinsha did not say if the OAD will be turned into a manga chapter, so the only way to see the “after story” is through the anime.
Writer Hazuki Takeoka and artist Tiv launched Masamune-kun’s Revenge in October 2012 as a “revenge rom-com.” The series has been a best-seller for Ichijinsha, won praise for Tiv’s art, and is credited for introducing a unique premise to the rom-com genre.
The series stars Masamune Makabe, a high school boy eager to get revenge on former childhood friend Aki Adagaki. Despite having a close friendship, Masamune was left scorned after Aki rejected his feelings and labeled him “Pig’s Foot” due to his weight. Masamune spent years dieting, working out to make himself handsome, and crafted a new identity with hopes to win Aki’s heart and reject her in front of the entire school.
Silver Link produced a 12 episode adaptation that aired in the winter 2017 season. It hasn’t been revealed if they will produce the new OAD.
