When is Tokyo Revengers Season 2 Release Date?

Tokyo Revengers Season 2 will air on January 8. Thus, we should be entitled to a new episode every Sunday. If we can expect them to last an average of 23 minutes like all anime, it remains to be seen whether the second season will be composed of 24 episodes as was the case for the first. As for the schedule, we know that the show will be broadcast at 02:08 (JST) in Japan, which is 18:08 at home. So yes, it’s a very specific time, but we don’t know if we will be entitled to a new episode simultaneously with the Japanese archipelago, or if we will have a slight lag of one hour for example.


To everyone’s surprise, Tokyo Revengers season 2 will air on Disney+. After Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War, Mickey’s firm continues to want to invest in productions from Japanese animation studios. This follows an agreement between the company and the Japanese company Kodansha, the largest Japanese publishing house which includes many magazines such as Monthly Afternoon (Vinland Saga), Monthly Shōnen Magazine (Noragami) or Weekly Shōnen Magazine (Blue Lock, Rent-a-Girlfriend) which hosts Tokyo Revengers. It remains to be seen whether we will be entitled to a simultaneous broadcast of the episodes with Japan, or if everything will be broadcast once the show is over, as is the case for Bleach with us.


What is the story of Tokyo Revengers?

Tokyo Revengers takes us on the adventures of Takemichi Hanagaki, a young man who does odd jobs and feels like he’s wasted his life. One day, he learns that his middle school girlfriend, Hinata Tachibana, has been killed by the ruthless Tokyo Manji-kai who is wreaking havoc on the city. In shock, he is one day pushed under the subway tracks following a crowd movement. To his surprise, he wakes up twelve years back, while he is in college. The opportunity for him to relive his best years, but also to change the course of things by taking his revenge on life, but above all, by avoiding the death of Hinata. For this, he will be helped in his quest by Hinata’s brother with whom he shares a strange bond. Each time the two boys touch, Takemichi finds himself transported to the past or the present, which allows him to do time travel.

Tokyo Revengers manga ended this year with a total of 279 chapters spread over 31 volumes. Unfortunately, the end seems to have disappointed a large number of readers, if we believe the strong reactions on social networks. If the anime is still far from having reached the end, one wonders if, once the time comes, the producers will make the decision to modify the end, just to try to please the fans of the manga.
