Crunchyroll anime series Masamune-kuns Revenge R Season 2 Episode 10 Recap


A slower episode that, while sentimental, falls flat as those moments are muddled by what feels like excessive drama for the sake of drama.

We recap the Crunchyroll anime series Masamune-kun’s Revenge R Season 2 Episode 10, “Whiteout,” which contains spoilers.

It turns out Aki (voiced by Ayaka Ohashi) knew more about the revenge plan than previously thought, and while viewers might’ve thought that would ruin everything, it’s only convinced her to work harder to make up for hurting Masamune (voiced by Natsuki Hanae) all those years ago.

As Aki works overtime to be better, Fujinomiya (voiced by Suzuko Mimori) has been going out of her way to stir the pot behind the scenes. With so much going on that Masamune isn’t aware of, it’ll be interesting to see who he ends up with in the end.

What does Yoshino confess to Aki?

Yoshino confesses to Aki that the entire pig’s foot misunderstanding was her fault and that she was helping Masamune behind Aki’s back.

Although she hated Masamune as children, she helped him now in an effort to fix the wrong she had done before.

The clerk ends up apologizing to Masamune. Later, Aki asks him if he was scared, but Masamune admits it wasn’t as scary as he thought. When she asks if he would like to confront the others, Masamune says he’s fine.

Aki encourages Masamune to have more confidence in himself after all the work he’s done to become the person he is. In exchange, Masamune gives Aki chocolate for White Day, but she rejects them.

Despite all that happened, this episode still felt somewhat disappointing overall. It seemed as though nothing felt as big as it should’ve like the important, dramatic moments fell flat and didn’t make as big of an impact as they should have.

It’s easy to tell we’re getting close to the end of the season as they attempt to close several of the problems and character arcs. I appreciate that the series is actually leaning toward closure, especially if this ends up being the last season. However, the inconsistent momentum shifts between these previous few episodes are frustrating.

The beginning of the season was consistently exciting with realistic drama, but it seems the second half has struggled with ups and downs. The back and forth between Aki and Masamune’s relationship is starting to feel dragged out, especially if this was her breaking up with him. Here’s hoping the last two episodes are better.
