Summary of Masamune-kun’s Revenge
As a child, Masamune Makabe is rejected by a rich and beautiful girl named Aki Adagaki, who nicknamed him “little pig” because of his fat boy appearance. In search of revenge, Masamune works hard to improve himself and returns as a very handsome, albeit narcissistic, high school student. When he meets Aki again, he is happy to get revenge. With the help of Aki’s servant, Yoshino Koiwai, Masamune slowly begins to build his relationship with Aki, trying to break her heart when the time is right. However, as his friendship with Aki begins to grow, Masamune begins to question the aims of his blasphemous plans, and whether his heart wants to see them through.
