In June 2021, the Tokyo Revengers manga entered its final arc. The next chapter, expected for October 19, would bring us closer to the series finale.

It was in 2017 that the chapter of tokyo revengecreated by Ken Wakui, will be released in the Weekly Shōnen Magazine of Kodansha. It was only two years later that French readers could discover the series, published by Glenat (BLEACH, dragonball, One Piece). While the market is dominated by stocks like My Hero Academia, The attack of the Titans or Kingdom, tokyo revenge invites readers to (re)discover a very popular genre in the early 2000s: the furyo.

Now comprising 29 volumes in Japan, volume 20 of tokyo revenge was released last September with us. Particularly discreet at its beginnings in France, the announcement, then the broadcast of the first animated season, produced by Liden Films, propelled the manga to the forefront. In June 2021, the author announces that the manga is entering its final arc, thus bringing us closer to the end of tokyo revenge. But the 46th issue of Weekly Shōnen Magazine brought new elements, thus revealing that the next chapter, expected for October 19, would bring us closer to the series finale.

Still in shock, Takemichi is about to take the train when someone is going to push him under the tracks.
