This summer was announced a second live film from the manga tokyo revenge, not surprisingly given the great success that was the first opus, which brought in more than 6 billion yen at the Japanese box office. Recently, new information on the continuation of the project has been revealed.
Tokyo Revengers 2 will therefore be in two parts, two separate films that will be released in Japanese cinemas next year. Both will adapt the Bloody Halloween arc, also called the Valhalla arc by many. The first part, Tokyo Revengers 2: Chi no Halloween – Unmei (“Tokyo Revengers 2: Bloody Halloween – Destiny“) will be released in the coming spring, during Golden Week. Its sequel, Tokyo Revengers 2: Chi no Halloween – Kessen (“Tokyo Revengers 2: Bloody Halloween – Decisive Battle“) will be released in the summer of 2023. A first visual, showing the symbolic handshake between Takemichi and Naoto, has been unveiled.
Tsutomu Hanabusadirector of the first film, resumes his role on these two sequels while the cast will remain unchanged. Takumi Kitamura will therefore continue to interpret Takemichi Hinagaki, alongside Ryo Yoshizawa as Manjiro “Mikey” Sano, Yuki Hamada in that of Ken “Draken” Ryûgûji, and Mio Imada in that of Hinata Tachibana.
Launched in 2017, Ken Wakui’s Tokyo Revengers manga concluded today in Shônen Magazine, with its 278th chapter. It will thus total 31 volumes, the last opus being planned for Japan on January 17, 2023. With us, the title appears at Glénat editions, the 21st volume having been published today.
Synopsis of the manga:
At 26, Takemichi feels like he’s already messed up his life. Living on thankless odd jobs just good enough to pay the rent of a shabby studio, he laments the desert of his love life when he learns of the death of Hinata, the only girlfriend he has had… young girl and her brother were the collateral victims of a settling of accounts between the members of a gigantic gang, the Tokyo Manji-kai. Still in shock, Takemichi is in turn the victim of an accident that inexplicably takes him back 12 years, when he was in college and gave himself the air of a bad boy. And if it was for him the occasion to save Hinata? But in trying to change the future, Takemichi will find himself inexorably embroiled in the plots brewing around the Tokyo Manji-kai and its charismatic and mysterious leader…
