Will there be a Tokyo Revengers Season 2?
Based on the manga series of the same name by Ken Wakui, Tokyo Revengers premiered in Japan in April 2021. In this country, the anime series will be released simultaneously on Crunchyroll. The grand finale of the first season is scheduled to be available on the streaming provider this Saturday.
Already, fans are wondering what will happen next with Takemichi, Draken and Mikey. Unfortunately, since the 2nd season has not been officially confirmed yet, we can’t give any certainty. However, the anime sold very well and also boosted the sales of the manga series tremendously. A sequel is quite likely considering the financial success.
When will Tokyo Revengers Season 2 be released?
Logically, the start date of the sequel is also unclear. Behind Tokyo Revengers is the animation studio LidenFilms, which is currently working on several projects simultaneously. So it’s possible that the 2nd season won’t be released for a few months or even years, but a soon start wouldn’t be out of the question either.
In any case, patience is the order of the day, and those who can’t wait will have the opportunity to read the manga. The manga serves as a template for the TV series and is already much further along with the plot. Since a total of 21 volumes have been licensed in English, you can read them.
Tokyo Revengers: Action
Takemichi Hanagaki’s second year of middle school was the highest point in his life. He had respect, a gang of friends he could count on, and even a girlfriend. But that was twelve years ago. Today, he’s a nobody: a washed-up nonentity made fun of by children and always forced to apologize to his younger boss. A sudden news report on the Tokyo Manji Gang’s cruel murder of the only girlfriend he ever had alongside her brother only adds insult to injury. Half a second before a train ends his pitiful life for good, Takemichi flashes back to that same day twelve years ago, when he was still dating Hinata Tachibana.
After being forced to relive the very same day that began his downward spiral, Takemichi meets Hinata’s younger brother. Without thinking, he admits to his seeming death before flashing back to the past. Takemichi urges him to protect his sister before inexplicably returning to the future. Miraculously, he isn’t dead. Stranger still, the future has changed. It seems as though Takemichi can alter the flow of time. Given the chance to prevent his ex-girlfriend’s tragic death at the hands of the Tokyo Manji Gang, Takemichi decides to fly through time to change the course of the future.
