Masamune-kun’s Revenge News
Masamune-kun’s Revenge is based on the manga of the same name, written by Hazuki Takeoka and illustrated by Tiv.
The series was published by Ichijinsa and serialized in their Monthly Comic Rex magazine from October 2012 to June 2018. Then, it was compiled into ten volumes with additional short stories entitled “Masamune-kun’s Revenge After School“.
The manga was licensed by Seven Seas Entertainment on September 4, 2015. The last volume of the English version of Masamune-kun’s Revenge was released on June 16, 2020.
The anime covers the six volumes of the manga or 30 chapters of the whole series. It leaves around four original manga volumes, that is, 19 chapters, to be animated.
It is good if the studio decides to animate the additional stories. But the impactful ending will suffer from that. So, there is a chance that this anime has 10 or 11 episodes. Sure, it falls short of other anime, but to save the fans’ satisfaction, it is the best course of action.
Or is it possible the staff has another plan? Let’s wait for Masamune-kun’s Revenge’s second season to air!
