A satisfying enough ending despite the overall lackluster feel of the finale.
We recap the Crunchyroll anime series Masamune-kun’s Revenge R Season 2 Episode 12, “Dead or Love,” which contains spoilers and explains the Ending.
The question now is, does Masamune feel the same way? For a moment in the middle of the season, even he thought he might be in love with Yoshino.
However, Masamune quickly turned his sights back to Aki (voiced by Ayaka Ohashi). With this being the last episode of the season, it seems Masamune will finally have to decide who he truly wants to be with.

Masamune-kun’s Revenge R Season 2 Ending Explained
During a school festival, Futaba, Kojuro, and Kanetsugu talk about their futures. Meanwhile, Yoshino and Fujinomiya talk about Masamune and Aki rejecting them both. The episode ends with Masamune and Aki finally making up for the dance they didn’t get to have after the previous year’s school play.
After years of waiting for a conclusion, Masamune-kun’s Revenge ended in a way that will surely make most viewers quite happy.
While I enjoyed seeing everything wrapped up, a few things about this episode were still irritating or distracting. The first was the lack of subtitles yet again, leaving out context at essential moments.
The next issue was the all-over-the-place structure of the episode. Clearly, the back and forth between various timelines was meant for dramatic effect, but initially, it was a bit confusing.
Even the flashbacks were split into short clips, dragging out whether or not Yoshino and Masamune were together for much longer than necessary instead of focusing on the main couple.
Toward the second half of the season, it just really felt like the story lost the momentum it had built up so well in the beginning. I think I would’ve preferred less unnecessary love interests and more focus on the consequences of the revenge plot.
Still, seeing it end with a real sense of closure was nice, even if it felt quite predictable.
