It will be in November that the Toudai Revengers manga arrives, a college story inspired by the Tokyo Revengers series.
This Tuesday a new manga was revealed that bears similarities to the series of Tokyo Revengers from Ken Wakui. The name of this is Toudai Revengers, which is performed by the mangaka Funatsu Shinpei (Kindaichi).
Its publication will begin from November 3 through the application Magazine Pocket from the publisher Kodansha. The fact is that the premise of this story is very similar to the adventures of Takemichi Hanagaki.
The inspiration is very clear, but in this case it is not a tale of juvenile delinquents. Actually, these are students of the Tokyo University. Instead of the drama of the play Wakui, what reigns here is comedy.
But what is very similar is the concept of time travel. Here it should be noted that the creator of Tokyo Revengers has approved this account of his colleague. So it is something independent but with a similar premise.
A new manga series titled “Toudai Revengers” by Funatsu Shinpei (Kindaichi) will start on the Magazine Pocket app on Nov 3, 2021

The design of one of the characters is similar to that of Takemichi in his respective sleeve, although with glasses. Here it should be noted that toudai (東 大) is short for Tōkyō Daigaku (東京 大学), which is the Japanese university mentioned before.
An ingenious way of naming this curious work that will have to be taken a look. Perhaps the idea of moving through the flow of time is handled similarly in Toudai Revengers and Tokyo Revengers.
Although it should be noted that a while ago it was revealed that Ken Wakui He took up elements from two well-known series to create the concept of the journey between different eras. However, when it comes to crime, it is an original contribution on your part.
Considering that this new manga is just about to begin, it is difficult to predict how it will be received. Unless you stand out for your ideas and level of humor, you will be in the shadow of the work of Wakui.

What concerns to Tokyo Revengers, fans are waiting for the announcement of a second season. It seems that in a few days there will be information related to the series, but it is not known if it will be from the anime.
As for the manga, it is already in its final stretch but it is not known when the outcome will come. That is something that only its creator can decide. You have to get used to the idea that the adventures of Takemichi Hanagaki are about to end.
In the meantime, we just have to wait and see how things turn out in the series. Thanks to @MangaMoguraRE by information.
