(LOS ANGELES, September 4, 2015) – Seven Seas Entertainment is pleased to announce their newest acquisition, Masamune-kun’s Revenge, a high school romantic comedy manga series written by Takeoka Hazuki and drawn by Tiv.
As an overweight child, Makabe Masamune was mercilessly teased and bullied by one particular girl, Adagaki Aki. Determined to one day exact his revenge upon her, Makabe begins a rigorous regimen of self-improvement and personal transformation.
Years later, Masamune re-emerges as a new man. Handsome, popular, with perfect grades and good at sports, Masamune-kun transfers to Aki’s school, and is unrecognizable to her. Now, Masamune-kun is ready to confront the girl who bullied him so many years ago and humiliate her at last. But will revenge be as sweet as he thought?
“Who doesn’t love a good revenge tale?” says Seven Seas publisher Jason DeAngelis. “This gem of a manga series is a hilarious, rom-com take on the revenge genre, and features excellent artwork. We think fans will really love it!”
Seven Seas will release Masamume-kun’s Revenge for the first time in print in North America as single volumes, each with a color insert. The first volume will be released on June 14, 2016 for $12.99 US / $14.99 CAN.
