Marking its inception in August 2021, the series’ inaugural stage play was swiftly succeeded by a second installment in March 2022.
The manga, created by Wakui and initially serialized in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in March 2017, concluded its riveting narrative in November 2022. It’s noteworthy that the Tokyo Revengers Extra spinoff manga, recounting the origins of the Tokyo Manji Gang’s founders, continues to grace the pages of Weekly Shōnen Magazine.
The manga’s gripping tale, as aptly described by Kodansha USA Publishing, revolves around Takemichi Hanagaki, who is jolted by the news of his middle school sweetheart Hinata Tachibana’s tragic demise at the hands of the nefarious Tokyo Manji Gang.
Living in a subpar apartment with paper-thin walls and enduring a condescending boss, Takemichi’s life takes a surreal turn when he inexplicably leaps twelve years into the past. Faced with the chance to rewrite his history and rescue Hinata, he embarks on a mission to conquer the formidable Kanto delinquent faction.
In a cinematic translation of the manga’s essence, the inaugural live-action film stormed Japanese theaters in July 2021, reigning as the year’s premier live-action offering. Crunchyroll faithfully brought this experience to its streaming audience.
Sequels soon followed, with the first of the duo, “Chi no Halloween -Unmei-” (Bloody Halloween -Fate-), making its debut on April 21, and its counterpart, “Chi no Halloween -Kessen-” (Bloody Halloween -Decisive Battle-), gracing screens on June 30.
