The title of the anime show is enough to hint at the story plot. Yes, it is a revenge tale that takes place between a boy and a girl. Teenagers would love the series as it is presented humorously. The show is a teenage romance revolving around a boy whose name is Masamune. He gets fascinated by a girl named Aki Adagaki, a good-looking girl from an affluent family background. It all happens during childhood.
At that time, Masamune did not have a charming personality and was a chubby kid. Because of this, his proposal of love gets rejected by Aki, who even calls him ‘Piggy’. Feeling dejected after refusal, Masamune decides to hone his physical appearance and completely turn into a handsome lad. And it does happen, and he becomes the charmer of his school. But things take a swift turn when he gets admission to a high school where he would be meeting Aki, his childhood crush.
Masamune later finds out that she is his classmate. And this was the opportunity he would not let slip from his hands. Since he was no longer a chubby ‘Piggy’ boy as termed by Aki, now he’s got a chance to exact the childhood revenge from her. And so Masamune starts planning to make her fall for him in love, and then break her heart at the right time. But things become more complex than he anticipated.
No effect on Aki
It is not only Masamune who was termed ‘Piggy’ for his chubby physique during childhood. Aki was also famously termed the ‘Brutal Princess’. She was not among the girls who would get easily moved with emotions. Apart from being beautiful, Aki is a girl who is hard to catch. And it is seen when Masamune’s initial efforts to impress her do not work upon her.
Befriending Yoshino to get close to Aki
Seeing no output of his efforts on Aki, Masamune is boiled with more feelings of revenge and is determined to not give up at any cost. His continuous efforts finally bring him closer to Yoshino Koiwai, classmate and attendant of Aki. Masamune cleverly tricks her to get him closer to his childhood crush. And so with the help of Yoshino, Masamune finally reaches his target in coming close to Aki. When it is the right time to exact revenge from her, Masamune takes a dip into thought, as to whether it is the right thing to do?
Briefing two main characters
Masamune is the central character on which the whole anime series is based. He is shown as once a little chubby boy who falls in love with a beautiful, rich girl named Aki. But due to his unpleasant appearance, he gets rejected by her. Feeling dejected, Masamune decides to transform himself into a handsome boy. And so it happens, he becomes the most good-looking boy with a charming personality in his high school. When he is transferred to another high school, he finds that his long childhood crush is his classmate. He plans to exact revenge and makes every effort to befriend her.
If Masamune is the male protagonist of the anime show, so is Aki Adagaki in the female lead. She plays his love interest. Aki is presented as a spoiled brat girl from an affluent background but is very beautiful. She rejects the proposal of Masamune during childhood days. She is shown as much dependent on her attendant and classmate Yoshino but does not show any respect for her. While watching the series, you will see the story from her point of view. According to her, it is Masamune who ditched her in making a false promise to be at her side.
