Tokyo Revenger’s first season ended with a bang. It received enormous force and support from people but left its viewers with several questions – Why Toman? Why was Hina a target? Who is Kisaki? What is his motive? How did he rise so quickly in less time? How did he become the right-hand man of Mikey and Draken?
With so many questions circling, Tokyo Revenger’s crew is all set to air the second season.
But before that, let us quickly learn about the release date, the cast, and many more.
Tokyo Revengers anime, adapted from Ken Wakui’s famous Manga, was the first broadcast on 10th April 2021 and ended in September 2021 with 24 episodes.
The season received tremendous love from its viewers and officially confirmed part two of the series at Jump Festa 2022.
The manga has been published in a total of 26 volumes and has entered the final arc in Japan.
Season 2 of the anime series is yet to be released. However, the filming has already begun.
The first season covered volumes 1 to 8 of the manga, while the second season will cover volumes 9 to 12 with one episode per week for three months.
According to some sources, the second season has a high probability of its release during the Christmas time as an early Christmas present.
As the name suggests, ‘Christmas Showdown Arc,’ the second season may be released in late 2022 or early 2023.
The show is expected to show the remaining story of Nakamichi.
He returns to the present and finds things in the same way – his friends are still dying.
In the upcoming season, we will be introduced to the Black Dragons.
When Takemichi decides to go back in the past, he learns that Hakkai Shiba is made to leave the Tokyo Manji Group and later joins the Black Dragons because of his abusive brother Taiju, who is also the current leader of the Black Dragons, who orders him to join the group.
With so many questions yet to be answered in the debut season, this arc will likely answer the suspension.
According to the manga readers, Draken Kun’s less screen time can affect his fans.
The debut season ends with Takemichi appointed as the 1st division president of the Gang.
Later in the present, Takemichi becomes the executive member of Tokyo Manji.
He enters the big building where all the top members are present and realizes Kisaki is still the head of the Toman.
However, Mickey, Draken, Mitsuya, and Kazutora were nowhere to be seen.
At the end of the episode, Kisaki made his move by killing Chifuya in front of Takemichi and later pointed out the gun to shoot Takemichi by regarding him as his hero.
Thus, it is expected that in the next season, we will know the whereabouts of Mickey Draken and whether Takemichi is still alive or dead, and what happened to the other members of the Toman Gang.
The Christmas Arc will feature the battle between the Toman and the 10th generation of the Black Dragons gang.
