It is an anime adaptation of a manga series. The manga was written and illustrated by Ken Wakui.

On the other hand, LIDENFILMS has been known in the industry for “Yamada kun and the seven witches” and “Akashic Records Of Bastard Magic Instructor”.


The story talks about Hanagaki Takemichi, a no-life part-timer who seems to have nothing to look forward to.


However, when the news of his childhood girlfriend’s death shows up, his life takes some unreal turns.


One of those is his reappearance in his past life. You see, my man was pushed in front of a train by a certain someone.


However, instead of getting rammed by the train, my boy showed up in his past life. 12 years in the past to be exact.


And it was this time that changed his life forever. The pivotal period where he was a delinquent and had a bunch of friends as well as a girlfriend.


Remember that girlfriend who dies in the present? Yup, she is the one I am talking about.


Now our boy is trying to comprehend his current self and as he does so, he comes across the fact that his girlfriend’s death is closely related to the incidents taking place in his past.


Therefore, after realizing his past and love for his girlfriend, my man decided to save her in the future.


But when he travels back, he realizes that all these incidents are connected with the Tokyo Manji Gang, a gang that was infamous back in his delinquent days.


Now he is on a mission to save his girlfriend by saving the Tokyo Manji Gang.


And he will do anything and everything to make sure that his girl has a lively future.


This marks the beginning of Hanagaki Takemichi and the legendary Tokyo Manji Gang. So now that we know about the narrative and all the trivial details, let’s finally dive deep into the second season, starting with the Official announcement and release dates.

Tokyo Revengers is a currently-publishing manga series that started back on March 1, 2017. It is written and illustrated by Ken Wakui and published in Weekly Shounen Magazine.


Ken Wakui has been responsible for other manga like Abaddon and Shinjuku Swan. Whereas weekly Shounen Magazine is known for Seven Deadly Sins and Fairy Tale.


Kodansha has been responsible for publishing this manga and as of the time I am writing this, 25 volumes of the manga are out.


The worst part is that there are no hard copies (English) for this series yet so you have to rely on online sources to read it. Seven Sea Entertainment is going to print the manga in an omnibus edition so fans who wish to read offline will get the opportunity.


Currently, these volumes are coming out every 3-4 months and there are a total of 247 released chapters.


Out of which, the first season adapted the first 73 chapters, and those chapters were extended till the first half of volume 9.

Twitter is the home for many international anime fans along with other anime enthusiasts and anime creators themselves.


It is a great place for anime lovers to hang around and have a chat about their favourite series.


However, this also means that it’s also a great platform to know how popular an anime is.


So let’s take a look at Twitter and see what Tokyo Revengers has to offer.


Oh my goodness, ladies and gentlemen. Unreal numbers are witnessed here as we get to know that the official Twitter account of Tokyo Revengers has over 372,000 followers!!!


That is an enormous number of people. And keep in mind that this series has aired only for 4 months and yet, it managed to grab such a massive audience.


And it’s not just Twitter that stands the strongest. No matter which platform you go to, Tokyo Revengers has great numbers following it proving that this show is a beast.

Expected Plot Of Tokyo Revengers Season 2


Now let’s take a look at the potential storyline of the series. If we remember correctly, in the end, Kisaki was holding a gun right on Takemichi’s head and the screen blacked out with the sound of the gun being fired.


This incident took place in the future when Takemichi is one of the leading members of Toman.


And right after the shot, the series ended with a cliffhanger. Now I don’t want to spoil you too much about what is going to happen because that will be cruel.


However, let’s just assume what could potentially happen in the series. As we all know, the series couldn’t have ended right with that gunshot.


So we can assume that someone came to Takemichi’s rescue. If that incident took place, then Takemichi would be free and realize that he hasn’t completed his mission yet.


Toman is still an evil gang. Therefore, he will start again in the past, but now he is the first division captain of the gang and he has a lot more info.


Our gang will get into fights with other gangs as well including Black Dragons and Haitani Brothers.


This is going to be so much fun! Let’s see if our boy Takemichi will make it through.


So that will be it, boys. I think this is where the story would go in the next season.


Of course, the details would be spoilers so I have avoided them. So make sure you are on your guard when you go online and search for Tokyo Revengers discussions.

Tokyo Revengers Manga, DVD/Blu-ray Sales


Now let’s get to the real deal, ladies and gentlemen. This is time to talk about SALES.


Anime is made to make money. Let’s see what Tokyo Revengers has under its sleeve with regard to this.


Manga sales

Ok, let me just state some facts here and you guys decide if Tokyo Revengers had enough manga sales or not.


Let’s go! Before the release of the anime, Tokyo Revengers had around 8 million copies (circulation).


Within a month, this number went from 8 million to 15 million! And just a week after that, the total sales reached a whopping 17 million.


And by September 26, the total copies in circulation reached an astonishing 40 MILLION! Moreover, each volume has had more than a million copies in circulation and received multiple reprints.


However, more is still being demanded nonetheless. And did I mention that it broke Attack On Titan’s record of being the highest-selling manga in a year by Kodansha?


Topping the Pricing lists multiple times, winning the 44th Kodansha Manga Award, and showing insane sales growth are just part and parcel of Tokyo Revengers.


Blu-ray/Dvd sales

Let’s look at the Blu-Ray sales. These contribute a good amount to the income of an anime.


And Tokyo Revengers had some decent numbers going for it in this segment. The sales of the first volumes were 2942, 3616, 4292, and 4513, respectively.


This goes to show that the sales numbers of this anime kept on going up.


It makes sense that these numbers are not THAT high despite being a super popular series because the anime was available on other streaming services.


Even godly shows like Attack On Titan don’t have such numbers going for them because people are switching to online streaming.


And with that in mind, Tokyo Revengers had great Blu-ray sales overall.



Tokyo Revengers had a few other methods of income as well. Merchandise doesn’t contribute a significant portion to its wealth because of how novel this anime is.


The live-action, however, was a success as it had a box office collection of $39,563,158, making it the most successful live-action of 2021 and the 28th most successful movie of 2021.


That’s quite some money, don’t you think? And did I mention the licensing fees for streaming services?


Heck, the bets for the license would go off the roof knowing that the anime is so popular.



Popular Tokyo Revengers Characters


This popular anime has many fan-favourite characters. In subsequent seasons many new faces would appear. So, let’s take a look at some of the important characters who appeared in season 1 and going to return for the 2nd season. 





Our boy is bound to make his reappearance in the next season mainly because he has sworn to be the leader of Toman.


His dedication and willpower to achieve what he wants are what made Mikey develop a liking for him.


And that is why we would love to see our boy in the upcoming instalments.





Mikey is the one who stole the show as well as fans’ hearts. My man can defeat anyone with just one kick yet has no ego or attitude at all.


Anyone who has watched the anime knows that he is the centre of all the activities that take place in the series and THAT is why his reappearance will shape the direction of the anime.





Draken is yet another show snatcher who gained massive popularity over time. He is not only big but also loyal and humble.


And this is why he is my ideal partner for Mikey. Moreover, his contribution to the overall story is so crucial that his death decides the future of the entire Japan.


Oh yeah, he is an important man and that is why he will show up next season as well.


We might also see characters like Chifuyu, Kisaki, Hinata, and some unknown characters like Haitani Brothers and Black Dragon Gang in the next season.


Although it depends on how long the anime will be, we can rest assured that these guys will get the screen time they deserve.
