Tokyo Revengers Creator Launches New Manga

Tokyo Revengers Creator Launches New MangaKen Wakui, the creator of Tokyo Revengers, is back with a new manga. Negai no Astro (Wishful Astro) will debut in the pages of Shonen Jump magazine in its April 15 issue.

The manga is being described as a “superpowers × outlaws” story. The first chapter will be 58 pages long and feature an opening color page.

Here’s looking forward to what Wakui has cooked up!

Tokyo Revengers ran from 2017 to 2022. Here’s how Kodansha USA describes it:

Watching the news, Takemichi Hanagaki learns that his girlfriend from way back in middle school, Hinata Tachibana, has died. The only girlfriend he ever had was just killed by a villainous group known as the Tokyo Manji Gang. He lives in a crappy apartment with thin walls, and his six-years-younger boss treats him like an idiot. Plus, he’s a complete and total virgin… At the height of his rock-bottom life, he suddenly time-leaps 12 years back to his middle school days!! To save Hinata, and change the life he spent running away, hopeless part-timer Takemichi must aim for the top of Kanto’s most sinister delinquent gang!!
