Let’s back to childhood for a while. Let’s say you’re fat and ugly, and you were falling in love with a beauty princess. But in the end, you were rejected and the girl gave you the nickname “Pig’s Foot” as she’s actually a “cruel princess”. Skip… skip… skip… Now you’re a hot high school student whenever you talk to a girl, she definitely would fall in love with you. And hey… you encounter again with that “cruel princess” in your school. What will you gonna do next? Make her falling in love with you to take a revenge?
This Makabe Masamune aiming for so long! He worked so hard to gain perfect body and good-looking face. He even has a motto like “Everything depends on whether you’re hot or not.” along with his extreme viewpoint: “If you’re not a hot guy, you’re not a human. Even a normal guy attains birth in the Pure Land, so it goes without saying that a hot guy will.”
Note: If you’re not hot enough, please don’t be offended. It’s an anime after all.
Surprisingly, this anime is really really good and has lots of humors. Honestly, I was really missing this kind of good romantic-comedy genre since there is no good one in Fall 2016.

Therefore, he builds up his physical appearance by training and keeping his calorie intake as low as possible, and grew to be a handsome narcissist, prepared to take revenge on Aki.
Story: Those who have been looking for a wonderful School Romance will really be thrilled. This anime consist mostly on the plot of revenge of a boy that was made fun of when he was child by his crush that gave him the nickname “Pig’s Foot”. First off, this can be a typical set-up for High school Romantic-Comedy which is pretty much enough for many audiences. However, then enters Makabe Masamune, another typical character but with a fascinating objective which is to get revenge on his childhood crush. The story would seem appealing.
Artwork: Silver Link did a decent work animating this anime. You will find lots of cool-looking backgrounds that were really detailed and in depth over the characters.
Character: I really liked the main characters of this anime. I like their manner of communicating of each other and think they provide this anime a whole lot of potential. There’s room for many growth of r the characters and this tends to make things really fascinating. I really hope for there to be even more appealing characters showing up in the future.
Sound: Opening theme (Wagamama Mirror Heart by Ayaka Ohashi) and Ending theme (Elemental World by Choucho) are okay in themselves and I’d personally listen and watch them every time I see in the next episode. As for the background music, it’s really fit with the situation that make the show more interesting.
Overall: This anime will fit for anyone who love romantic-comedy genre. I really enjoyed watching this Masamune-kun no Revenge anime every single minutes and give me a good laughs here and there.
