The official website for Ichijinsha's Monthly Comic Rex magazine has revealed that Hazuki Takeoka and Tiv's Masamune-kun's Revenge (Masamune-kun no Revenge) manga will enter its "climax" in the February 2017 issue, which ships on Tuesday. The word "climax" written in phonetic katakana often indicates a manga series' final chapter.
Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the manga in North America, and it describes the story:
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?
Writer Takeoka and female Korean artist Tiv (Heaven's Memo Pad manga) launched the series in Monthly Comic Rex magazine in 2012. Ichijinsha will ship the manga's eighth compiled volume in Japan on January 27. Seven Seas released the manga's third volume in English on December 6.
An anime adaptation of the manga will premiere on Tokyo MX on January 5, and will also air on the AT-X, Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, and BS Fuji channels.
