Summary of Masamune-kun no Revenge
As a child, Masamune Makabe was chased by a rich and beautiful girl named Aki Adagaki, who nicknamed him “little pig” because of his boyish fat appearance. Seeking revenge, Masamune works hard to improve himself and returns as a very handsome, yet 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.
