Masamune was chubby as a kid and got rejected by Adagaki. Now he’s lost weight and is determined to make her fall in love with him so that he can reject her.
What is it with these shows about people losing weight and somehow that making them super popular? Having endured Kiss Him, Not Me last season I really don’t know that I can go for a second anime in a row where a character loses weight and somehow that transforms how people see them. Not to mention, the basic set-up where he just wants to toy with a girl before dumping her is kind of repugnant regardless of how heart broken he may have been as a child.
If I ignore the premise, this first episode is still pretty underwhelming. I’m not sure what tone they were going for but what I got was pretty much nothing. We followed Masamune around at school, saw him get excited that he ran into Adagaki fairly quickly and then watched him stalk her before orchestrating a rescue. I’ll give this one more episode but odds are this one is going to hit the drop list.
Masamune-Kun’s Revenge is available on Crunchyroll.
