Tokyo Revengers Season 2 Episode 1: What Will Happen Next?
Episode 1 will start with the Christmas Showdown arc of the manga. The episode will see a new gang making an entry into the show: The Black Dragons. It is a 10th-gen motorcycle gang and a rival of Tokyo Manji. Interestingly, Shinichiro, Mikey’s brother, was the first-gen leader of Black Dragons. Thus, the new story will undoubtedly put a lot of focus on flashbacks.
Apart from that, new delinquents from the manga will also debut, such as Izana Kurokawa, Hakkai, and Taiju Shiba. These people will get involved with Toman as the story goes on. The Christmas showdown will see a major fight between these two violent gangs. Who will win? Once again, Takemichi will undoubtedly return to save the tragic fate of his friends and prevent the brewing conflict.
A Quick Recap!
After the Bloody Halloween Arc, Mikey merged Valhalla with Toman. And Hanma took command of the sixth squad. He also appointed Takemichi as the first-division captain. Toman rejoiced as the fight was over. The group hailed Kisaki as the hero who won the fight and held up a banner rejoicing his victory. After the peaceful union of the two gangs, Takemichi returned to the present. In the future, Toman was now an evil gang. Takemichi was promoted to an executive member of the group. But the founders of Toman were missing.
Meanwhile, to his horror, Takemichi found out that Draken would get hanged. With both of these people gone, Kisaki was the new boss. Now he purged the members who leaked out info to the police. One time, Kisaki invited Takemichi and Chifuyu to a meeting. But he captured Chifuyu and killed him. Next, he pulled the trigger at Takemichi and bid him farewell after calling him his hero! But why did he call him a hero? Takemichi’s fate remains uncertain. This is the biggest mystery that the makers have built up for the Tokyo Revengers Season 2 Episode 1.
