Impressions: The Young Master's Revenge


The Young Master's Silly Grudge

Have you ever been humiliated enough that you held a grudge for 10 years and then travel back to enact your revenge? Probably not. The Young Master's Revenge revolves a Leo, a young boy who had his pride torn to shreds by Tenma, a girl from a wealthy background who was always getting him into trouble. The straw that broke the camel’s back was when Leo got turtle bites on his butt cheeks and humiliated for life. Now, years after his father’s successful clothing business has made him the heir to a fortune, he searches out Tenma to enact a dastardly plan—he’ll get his revenge by making her fall in love with him and then crush her heart.

At first, I really had difficulty trying to keep reading as both Leo Tachibana and Tenma Tsuwabuki, the protagonists, wasn’t really interesting, so I forced myself a bit to read the first chapter. Both character, especially Leo, as he was starting to feel redundant with his intentions. However, as I kept reading, I started to find the story kind of cute, especially the interactions between Leo and Tenma, especially when Leo tries to make his advances on Tenma but he ends up failing.

The story feels somewhat slow at the moment but that’s understandable as the first volume includes the first five chapters of the series. It was a nice introduction to the characters, with the final chapter giving you a taste of what it’s about to come between both Leo and Tenma. By how things are going, it seems obvious that both characters will fall for each other in the end.

While I ended up enjoying The Young Master's Revenge, in the end, it is hard to recommend it to someone that isn’t really into Shojo, just based on the first volume. Personally, I plan to read more and see how it goes. I just find Leo totally unrelatable at the moment.
