Masamune-kun's Revenge

Jan 11, 2017

Based on 5 episode(s). To be updated 

Masamune-kun's Revenge 

Story.

Masamune once a fat rick kid who loved his food but was the target of bullies. He loses weight through diet and exercise to become hot guy but what he wants is revenge on his former bully, the most popular girl in school, Aki. At the same time he wants to hide his former identity.

The set up may not be unique but promises to be entertaining. The real challenge for the story is how they handle the question of "is changing your appearance enough?"

Animation

The backgrounds and character design are nice. Nothing spectacular but solid

Characters

Our protagonist, Masamune who was once the victim of bullying for obese loses weights and essentially takes on a new identity. He has a reasonable backstory but also faces the ongoing challenge of whether changing his appearance is enough. 

 The villian/heroine so to speak falls in the opposite category to Masamune and has always enjoyed being popular. She bullies all guys who ask her out but so far the reason is unclear. 

A couple of the side characters also have interesting back stories and are developed through the series so far. 

A number of the side characters also seem to be developing over the first few episodes. 

Overall

This is a rom com not particularly unique but so far has been pretty entertaining.
