Tokyo Revengers Synopsis
Takemichi Hanagaki’s second year of high school was the high point of his life. He had respect, a gang of friends he could count on, and even a girlfriend. But that was twelve years ago. Today she is a nobody: a rickety nonentity who is mocked by the children and who is always forced to apologize to her youngest boss. A sudden piece of news about the Tokyo Manji gang’s cruel murder of his only girlfriend with her brother only adds insult to injury. Half a second before a train ends her unfortunate life forever, Takemichi remembers that same day twelve years ago, when she was still dating Hinata Tachibana.
After being forced to relive the very day he began his downward spiral, Takemichi meets Hinata’s little brother. Without thinking, he admits to his apparent death before returning to the past. Takemichi urges him to protect his sister before inexplicably returning to the future. Miraculously, he is not dead. Stranger still, the future has changed. It seems that Takemichi can alter the flow of time. Given the chance to prevent the tragic death of his ex-girlfriend at the hands of the Tokyo Manji gang, Takemichi decides to fly through time to change the course of the future.
