Masamune Kun No Revenge Season 2 Release Date, Characters And Plot - What We Know So Far

The phrase "all is fair in love and war" might be true, but that alone doesn't justify someone's actions when it comes to either. There may not be hard and fast rules in romance or battle, but there is an etiquette to it. Much like how biological weaponry is generally seen as a no-no by the world's governing bodies, spending your entire life working on a revenge plan to get back at the girl who harshly rejected you is also considered a jerk move.

Despite all of this common knowledge, Masamune Makabe, the teenage protagonist of the rom-com anime, "Masamune Kun No Revenge" desperately needs someone to teach him this lesson. Unfortunately, the first season of "Masamune Kun No Revenge" concluded before such a feat could be accomplished. Instead, the 2017 anime wrapped up with a cliffhanger, leaving Masamune's final decision unresolved.

Years later, fans are still wondering what could possibly become of Masamune and his love/hate relationship with the apple of his ire, Aki. As such, many are excited at the prospect of a "Masamune Kun No Revenge" Season 2. Much to their chagrin, however, the future of this anime does not seem so bright. However, there is still some hope. Therefore, here is what we know so far about the release date, characters, and plot of "Masamune Kun No Revenge" Season 2.

When will Masamune Kun No Revenge Season 2 release?

At the current moment, "Masamune Kun No Revenge" exists in a perpetual state of limbo. Over four years have passed since the finale of its first season in March 2017, and animation studio Silver Link has announced nothing on the series since then. This is in spite of the fact that they ended the first season on a cliffhanger, leaving many fans with the expectation that the studio would wrap up the series with a continuation. This was not the case.

Granted, the studio did create a spinoff OVA in 2018 (via Myanimelist), but it takes place at long after the events of the original story and neglects to focus on the original's core conflict. This might be because, at the time, there simply wasn't enough of the original manga left to adapt. The anime only adapted six of the eight manga volumes that existed back in 2017. Since then, the manga has released an additional three albums, meaning that there is plenty more source material to adapt into a second season.

Who are the characters in Masamune Kun No Revenge Season 2?

As a romance, "Masamune Kun No Revenge" intently focuses on a small cast, primarily Masamune and Aki. Once a rather pudgy child, the young Masamune became fast friends with the beautiful Aki Adagaki. Upon asking her out, however, the girl curtly rejects him while nicknaming him "Pig Foot." Heartbroken, Masamune dedicates the following years to becoming fit and attractive so that he may woo Aki once more before rejecting her as ruthlessly as she had to him years ago. The pair are voiced by actors Natsuki Hanae and Ayaka Ohashi, respectively (via Myanimelist).

Joining the main duo are two more characters of significance, Yoshino Koiwai and Neko Fujinomiya. The former works as the wealthy Aki's personal maid, who is motivated by her master's mistreatment into helping Masamune with his devilish plan. She is voiced by Inori Minase. The other is a second childhood friend of Masamune's who is reunited with the protagonist after a chance encounter with him and Aki. She is voiced by Suzuko Mimori.

Western anime fans will also be delighted to know that "Masamune Kun No Revenge" Season 1 received an English dub, meaning they may be introduced to these characters in their native language. Assuming Season 2 is ever produced, fans can expect a continuation of the dub somewhere down the line.

What is the plot of Masamune Kun No Revenge Season 2?

As previously stated, the first season of "Masamune Kun No Revenge" concluded with a cliffhanger, leaving Masamune's decision to betray Aki's trust unresolved. The two had just participated in their class' "Snow White" play, a production which included a kiss between the two would-be lovers. Oddly, Masamune's on-stage kiss was met with a punch from Aki. However, the two make up and share a close moment before she leaves on a field trip to Paris. Masamune considers going after her.

The ensuing manga chapters follow the two as they visit Paris with the rest of their class. Despite being nothing more than a class vacation, the two are forced into some awkward interactions that reveal Aki's past rejection of Masamune was more than it appeared. This causes Masamune to, if slightly, doubt the validity of his plan. Whether or not he goes through with the deed is yet to be seen, but fans will surely be excited to find out once Masamune Kun No Revenge" Season 2 releases.
