Tokyo Revengers Manga Picks Up Anime for 2021

Tokyo Revengers Manga Picks Up Anime for 2021Ken Wakui’s manga Tokyo Revengers is getting anime-ized.

The adaptation of the manga, which launched in Shonen Magazine back in 2017, is set to hit screens in 2021.

The news came alongside a short teaser for the series and a new illustration by Wakui, who may be best known for his manga Shinjuku Swan.

Aside from this anime adaptation, Tokyo Revengers is also being turned into a live-action film. It’s set to hit Japanese theaters October 9.

Here’s how Kodansha Comics, which publishes the manga in English, 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 twelve 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!!

Looking forward to seeing Tokyo Revengers next year.
