Learn Japanese with Anime: “Masamune kun’s Revenge” (Advanced Level)


Webmaster Review

66% Great

The OP song "ワガママMIRROR HEART" is really good. A catchy, up-tempo song is perfect for this anime. The creative romantic comedy is clear in interest, and you can fully enjoy it with the cuteness of the character. Note that the quality of both the drawing and the background is poor, but it's fine to relax and enjoy it as a comedy animation.

When Masamune Makabe was a child, he was rejected by a rich, beautiful girl named Aki Adagaki, who gave him the nickname ”Piggy” for being overweight. Devastated, Masamune put great effort into working out to improve his appearance. Now a handsome yet narcissistic high school student, Masamune is determined to exact revenge—he will have Aki fall madly in love with him and ultimately reject her the next time they meet.

To his surprise, Masamune discovers he has transferred into Aki’s school. Setting his plan into motion, Masamune first begins to form a relationship with the ”Brutal Princess” but, despite his efforts, fails miserably at his initial attempts. Shockingly, when Masamune finally progresses towards his vengeance, he receives a mysterious letter addressing him by his old nickname. Unless Masamune discovers the sender’s identity, his plan is doomed before it even starts!

The prevalence of difficult words is quite high at 17.4 terms/episode, and there are many variations in terms. Proverbs and idioms that the main character likes to use may be very difficult for Japanese learners. In addition, there will be a lot of slang and vocabulary of the main character, which will make learning difficult. They also call other people “Pig’s trotters” or “small fly” so they shouldn’t be taken as just nouns. The way you enjoy this work depends on how you understand the unique Japanese expressions around here. Therefore, it is very difficult to study Japanese in this anime, and even students with advanced level or higher may find it difficult. From these points, it can be said that this work is not suitable as a Japanese study material.
