Tokyo Revengers Season 1 Ending Explained: Baji Resigns
It all started after Baji resigned from Toman. Following Moebius’ defeat, Takemichi found that Hinata had died yet again. Once again, he went to the past to check what went wrong. After the Moebius Arc, the Toman appointed a new captain for the third division. And it was none other than Kisaki. Takemichi was furious to see him take that position. But his objection was futile. Baji beat him for disrespecting Mikey’s decision.
Shockingly, Baji himself resigned shortly. He quit Toman to join the new Valhalla gang. Mikey was deeply broken to see a founding member go away. On the other hand, Takmichi begged Mikey to kick out Kisaki. Thus, Mikey made a deal with him. Mikey swore that Takemichi would take Kisaki’s place if he brought Baji back. Meanwhile, the plot reveals Kisaki’s plan to take over Toman. He was the leader of Valhalla behind the shadows.
The Bloody Halloween!
Takemichi tried to change the timeline. But, Kisaki’s moves proved to be a great hurdle. He tried to convince Baji to come back to Toman. However, Baji replied he would help Kazutora to kill Mikey. Amidst all the conflicts, a war broke out between Toman and Valhalla. The plot revealed that Kazutora was the one who killed Shinichiro, Mikey’s brother. It happened due to a mistake. He was only trying to steal a bike from Shinichiro’s shop, unaware of the owner. But, the end resulted in spilling a lot of blood on the floors. Kazutora’s guilt for killing Shinichiro turned into hatred for Mikey.
Now in a junkyard, the two gangs began the battle. The Valhallas outnumbered Toman. As the delinquents fought against each other, Kazutora isolated Mikey to deal with him alone. But he easily took down Kazutora and all the rivals. However, he was burned out and fell to the ground. The Valhalla took this as a chance to attack back. Kisaki came with his Toman division and drove them away. This was a plot to gain Mikey’s trust. To his luck, Mikey merged Valhalla with Toman. And Hanma was the new captain of the sixth division. He also appointed Takemichi as the first-division captain. But the plot began to puzzle out fans after this when he went back to the future.
