Story: Tenma's family has owned a prestigious and wealthy department store chain for a century. When Leo was little, he was forced to be irrepressible Tenma's friend in order to curry favor for his father's burgeoning fashion business. While Leo did his best to keep up with the accident prone and boyish Tenma, she was quite too much for him to handle and she often got both of them into scrapes, including the notorious snapping turtle incident that left scars on his buttcheek. Now, years later, Leo returns to get revenge on the clueless heiress for his humiliation. His family is very rich and his father created a fashion brand. But what he finds is that Tenma's family went bankrupt, she's on her own, and she's still the clueless clumsy girl that he left. Can Leo get the oblivious Tenma to fall in love with him so he can promptly dump her and get his revenge for the snapping turtle incident?
If there is a shoujo cliche, Tanaka has fun with it. It was amusing just to figure out which trope is being roasted in each chapter. At the heart of the story is Tenma having to learn to care for herself and Leo being rather possessive of her to ensure that he has all the opportunities he needs to win her heart. Tenma is rather clueless that people were forced in the past to be her friend and doesn't understand their resentment toward her. She's also completely unable to deal with life now that she doesn't have servants doing everything for her. Leo, of course, manages to work a deal where he gets custody of her and she wants to do her best to make up for what she is learning happened in the past.
You'll find the usual cute-boy former fiance, mean girls, situations that throw the two together, and misunderstandings. It's how Tanaka handles them that makes this a treat of a manga. If anything, I'd say that Leo is the typical shoujo protagonist and Tenma is often like the male lead, if less idealized. But I like that the two are seriously flawed and mess up all the time.
The art is solid and the panels presented nicely. It's easy to follow the story and Tanaka captures the humor perfectly.
In all, the Young Master's Revenge is a cute and fun read and well worth the time.
