..☀Masamune Makabe (真壁 政宗, Makabe Masamune) is the main protagonist of the manga series, Masamune-kun no Revenge.
He comes back as a fit and handsome young man to get revenge on Aki Adagaki, the girl who had brutally hurt his heart. With the help of Yoshino, Aki's maid, he's looking for succession in breaking the Brutal Princess' heart.
Masamune is a very handsome boy who is quite tall with a very well-sculpted body. He has short black hair (a fringe that falls in between his eyes) and black eyes. He is usually seen wearing his school uniform and a bag that lies on his shoulder. With his good looks, he seems to get away with most things.
In the past, he was chubby, short, and ugly, which made him an easy target to bully.
Masamune is quite smart as he got full marks in his transfer exam and seems to also excel in sports. When he's to please the women, he is shown to be quite flirtatious. Though his training made him tough and handsome, he still has a fear of bugs, especially spiders, which makes him squeal at times. It's shown that he's been able to "read people", as shown when he saw through Neko's facade multiple times.
His handsome features and dream-like personality makes the girls in his school swoon for him. He gets all his moves and ideas of being a 'kind boy' from romance and shoujo manga, which he had borrowed from his sister.
Though he may appear to be narcissistic, it is actually his fear of returning to his traumatic days of being overweight and bullied. As a result, he regularly works out and is extremely mindful of the calories in his foods.
Masamune is currently dating Adagaki
Masamune had met the heart-breaker, Aki Adagaki, on the day he was bullied, eight years ago. He was standing outside her mansion, claiming that he was rich. Once the bullies left because of the scary dogs, he saw her and they became good friends.
Going to Aki's garden very often, he would keep her company, get her gifts. In return of him being nice and honest to her, Aki would also help make Masamune stronger by stopping him from fearing her dogs, Lancelot and Sean. When Aki had helped Masamune take revenge on his bullies, she had also confessed her sadness as her parents were getting a divorce. Masamune had also vowed then to be by her side.
Later at home, Masamune thoughtfully decided what to do to cheer her up when his sister, Chinatsu, was trying to get his attention. His mother, misunderstanding what he said, was upset he didn't like her donuts and went to make better and fresh donuts, which Masamune took into consideration that he shouldn't buy a gift because Aki didn't like donuts or candy because they have it there in her mansion.
He went to Central Park to gather flowers and was running to Aki's mansion, only to meet his bullies as he ran towards the mansion. However, he was caught up by his bullies in the garden. Screaming her name as he was held back by the bullies, Yoshino disguised as Aki came into view, very annoyed. She said "I can't really come to like you, Piggy", and nickname him Piggy which broke Masamune's heart and humiliated him in front of the bullies. After the heartbreak, Masamune asked for his granddad to help him. So for the past eight years, his grandfather had made him run, pull weights and keep fit to become a handsome and tall young man. Masamune took his features as an advantage to advance in getting his revenge on Aki.
When Masamune meets Aki, he realized how getting her to fall for him was not going to be easy, as she was a man-hater who enjoyed humiliating and rejecting everyone who confessed to her. She also has a way of giving boys she doesn't like derogatory nicknames. Extremely confident about his good looks, he unhesitatingly proceeded to flirt and make her fall for him. He seemed to be making progress, as she often got nervous and blush around him, despite insulting him just like she did everyone else. He even gained the help from Yoshino, Aki's maid.
He used Yoshino to fulfill his plan to get revenge on Aki but before he met with her, she gathered information about him and found out that he was the chubby kid "Piggy Foot" who was turned down by Aki eight years ago. At first he was greatly anxious about having someone finding out about his past-self, however after they met face-to-face, and revealing that that she was the one who found out his identity, Yoshino told him that she too would help him get revenge on Aki. She took advantage of Aki's trust for her to help Masamune meet his goal.
The Play ArcEdit
When Masamune decided to fill in as the prince at the last minute without consulting his class for Class 2-A play of Snow White when Kanetsugu was nowhere to be found in time for his part to be played. He knew that they worked too hard for this to happen and couldn't let it end in tragedy. Although he had a fever at the time and ended up acting a bit clumsy on stage, his clumsiness and inability to think clearly resulted him actually kissing Adagaki and letting Class 2-A's play ended in success. Kanetsugu Gasou managed to return to stage all the while feeling frustrated, and leaving Class 2-B no choice but to scrap their play, despite Gasou asking Futaba to fill in as prince for Class 2-B play. Which Futaba replied, "Don't underestimate the role of chemistry here." Masamune had to go the nurse office afterwards.
- The anime (Masamune-kun no Revenge) covers the volumes from vol.1 to vol.6 because episode 12 of season one was ''don't let go of the mic, even if you die'' and the vol.6 chapter 29 was named '' don't let go of the mic, even if it kills you'' the names are similar (so it covers from vol.1 to vol.6). This means that there is a very high chance that this anime will have a second season and according to some articles its also rumored that the second season might be somewhere around April 2018. Also Masamune indicated in the end of episode 12 that he will continue trying to make her fall in love with him until he gets his revenge which also means a high chance for second season. And also in chapter 39 they both genuinly fell in-love with each other officially making them a couple.
- Although Masamune should be in higher class due to his age, he is seen in the same grade as Aki Adagaki.
- Masamune's first time kissing Adagaki Aki was during the school play, with him playing as the prince, while Adagaki Aki was playing as Snow White
- However Masamune also kissed Fujinomiya Neko when he went to her apartment so... Arguably that's his first kiss.
- His family is quite wealthy
- He finally discovered about misunderstanding between him and Adagaki Aki by Yoshino Koiwai
- His zodiac sign is a Capricorn, while his Chinese zodiac sign is a dragon
