The Tokyo Revengers anime never reached the popularity of One Piece, Jujutsu Kaisen, or Demon Slayer. Its second season could help it!
Created by the mangaka Ken Wakui, the universe of Tokyo Revengers exists today in two forms: the manga, and the anime adapted from the latter. It is precisely this one that will receive a second season in a few months, in 2022! It will build on the huge success of season 1 as well as the manga, I’one of the most sold in recent years.
Tokyo Revengers season 2: anime release date in season 2
The only window for the moment given as to the release of Tokyo Revengers anime sequel is 2022 sequel. It will probably be necessary to wait until the end of the year to see the anime land, with a release at the time of the Jump Festa event in December.
The Tokyo Revengers manga, drawn and imagined by Ken Wakui, will once again be the main inspiration since season 2 will always be a fairly faithful adaptation. And while we were waiting for news of this sequel during the last Jump Festa 2022 event (in December 2021), nothing came of it! However, we know that the main production has started: the writing of season 2 is therefore finished.
Note that Season 1 took around 9 months to be finalized from the start of main production, which would therefore result in a release at the very end of 2022 if the schedule is the same.
Tokyo Revengers Season 2 Script, Adaptable Arcs, and Story
Ended on episode 24 of the first season, I’anime Tokyo Revengers had an explosive ending. Available on Crunchyroll in France, this season will soon be accompanied by 24 new episodes which will continue the main story.
In it, the character of Takemichi Hanagaki, a 26-year-old unemployed man, leads a soft life when he is introduced to the Tokyo Revengers universe. However, the story is mainly set in his youth, when he was only 14 years old and joined the Tokyo Manji gang, better known as the Toman. The gang is led by Manjiro’Mickey‘ Sano, a 15-year-old often accompanied by his right-hand man Draken. The hero of the story has the ability to travel between his adolescence and his adult life and tries as much as possible to influence the gang to protect the future.
- Tokyo Revengers anime season 2 will adapt the Black Dragons arc
In season 1, as well as in the first chapters / volumes of the manga, the gang is imposing but only a few characters stand out from the rest. Chifuyu Matsuno for example, but also Keisukebaji, Takashimitsuya and atsushisendo.
Will they all be back in season 2 of the anime Tokyo Revengers? If we are to believe the rest of the manga, the answer will be yes and everyone will take part in an adventure that is a little darker than before!
As a reminder, at the end of season 1 of the animated series, Takemichi discovers that he has been chosen to lead one of the strongest divisions of the gang, before falling into a “trap” which could be fatal to him. We know that he does not die since he is present in the rest of the manga and it is therefore doubtless that season 2 will begin right at this time.
Tokyo Revengers season 2: Draken’s voice actor leaves the project
Official news is rare and one of the only ones already has enough to disappoint fans. One of the main actors has just left the cast after a personal scandal; this is actor/voice actor Tatsuhisa Suzuki, which therefore embodies draken (Mikey’s right arm). Although the hero is well on the screen in season 2, his original actor is no longer part of the project.
For the rest, the casting should be unchanged. We will therefore find, except for a force majeure event:
- Yuki Shin: Takemichi Hanagaki
- Azumi Waki: Hinata Tachibana
- Ryota Osaka: Naoto Tachibana
- Yu Hayashi: Manjiro Sano
And many others, to be found on Crunchyroll at the end of 2022. The anime will be accompanied other ultra-popular productions, such as a season 3 for Demon Slayer !
