Rated “T” for “Teen”

Leo Tachibana wants revenge for an incident that occurred ten years ago.  His target is a childhood friend, the rich girl Tenma Tsuwabuki.  When he is reunited with Tenma, however, Leo discovers that she and her family have fallen on hard times.  Leo decides if he is to get revenge, he will have to take this sad former “princess” under his care, and make her love him so that he can break her heart.  But will it be that easy?

The Young Master's Revenge, Vol. 2 (Chapters 6 to 11) finds Tenma determined to attend a school that she can afford.  Thus, she enrolls at Sazuka High School, a public school that is right next door to the elite private high school, Genbu University High School, that she and Tachibana currently attend.  Well, Tachibana can't possible allow Tenma to go without him, so he transfers, also.

However, the students of Sazuka are suspicious of Genbu High students, even former ones.  When Tachibana discovers the primary reason for the discord between the two schools, he hatches a plan to fix it, which may only make things worse.  Plus, the “Rose King” returns.

[This volume includes the bonus manga, “Meca Site.”]

THE LOWDOWN:  Sweet and frothy, The Young Master's Revenge manga is a shojo romance about discordant reunions and ulterior motives.  Series writer-artist, Meca Tanaka, is also the creator of the sweet and delightful shojo manga, Meteor Prince (which VIZ Media published in English back in 2015 in a two-graphic novel series).

The Young Master's Revenge Graphic Novel Volume 2 is full of revelations.  Tanaka gives us not one, but two love triangles.  One reoccurring theme in this volume is the idea that a lot of misunderstood feelings are really feelings of love.  Vol. 2 is not quite as smooth as the debut volume, but watching shojo teens forced to recognize romantic feelings is fun.

I READS YOU RECOMMENDS:  Readers looking for a sugary Shojo Beat treat will want The Young Master's Revenge.
