If you want to catch up with this blockbuster anime or even dive in for the first time, here is everything you need to know about Tokyo Revengers.
What Is Tokyo Revengers?
The anime follows Takemichi Hanagaki, a young man who learns that his ex-girlfriend and her young brother were murdered by the infamous Tokyo Manji Gang. However, Takemichi’s fortune changes when he is hit by a train and sent 12 years back in time.
In the past, Takemichi meets up with Naoto, the younger brother of his ex, and tells him about future events. Once he has done this, Takemichi is tossed back to the present, but this present is different from the one he left behind. While his ex was still murdered, Naoto survived and became a detective. Takemichi learns that whenever he and Naoto hold hands, Takemichi is thrown back in time again.
Because of this, Takemichi sets out on a quest to save everyone by altering past events. However, he quickly learns that time is way more complex than he thought.
The series started as a manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine but quickly got picked up and made into an anime that began broadcasting on April 11th, 2021. The series is produced by Liden Films and directed by Koichi Hatsumi. Keiko Ōta handled the character designs and it features music by Hiroaki Tsutsumi.
