After commemorating one of the most fantastic releases of the year, Tokyo Revengers has finally reached its end. The popular crime fantasy series was released in April 2021 and became a fan favorite in a matter of months. Five months later, fans are disheartened to say goodbye to the Tokyo underworld. But there is good news for all the fans. The pilot season will not be the final edition of the anime adaptation. Tokyo Revengers Season 2 is on its way, and fans can soon get back to the mischievous world of Tokyo. So, when is the second season coming? Here is all you need to know.
Tokyo Revengers is an ongoing manga by author Ken Wakui. The ongoing text released its first chapter in the Kodansha magazine in March 2017. Later in 2020, Studio LIDEN Films announced its collaboration with Kodansha to bring the anime adaptation. The first season launched in two cours with twelve episodes each. Now, fans desperately look forward to a second installment.
Tokyo Revengers Season 2: Renewal Status
For the time being, there has been no official announcement of the renewal of the second season of Tokyo Revengers. Much like any anime, the renewal depends sheerly on the reception of the prior season and the sales of the manga. Tokyo Revengers is rated 8.26 on MyAnimeList by the fans. Moreover, the IMDb score of the anime lands on a good 8.6. In a time where most of the shows struggle to touch the 8.5 mark, Tokyo Revengers is already the name of the big leagues. Additionally, the manga sold over 35 million copies by August 2021.
Besides, the popular prediction suggests that this number will see an exponential rise when the manga enters the final arc. Thus, all these accolades are more than enough to establish that Tokyo Revengers Season 2 is not a far-off dream.
Since the first airing of the inaugural episode, fans have been following the news around the renewal details. There have been many such leaks that suggest that Studio LIDEN Films is already working on the second season. However, no official source has stamped the news to be correct. However, since the first season was already finished with the production work in May 2021, the studio has enough months to begin the animation work. Thus, the leaks can be believed to a certain extent. Beyond that, nothing can be said until the studio itself verifies the news.
Tokyo Revengers Season 2: Plot Details!
The pilot season of the anime left fans in a state of awe after the finale episode ended with a cliffhanger. In the final moments of the show, Mikey announced the merger of the Tokyo Manji and the Valhalla Gang. Takemichi joined the new gang at Chifuyu’s request. Chifuyu also named Takemichi the captain of the first division as he was close to Baji. Later, Kisaki announced at the executives’ meeting that police had raided the delinquents. He captured both Takemichi and Chifuyu and announced that he was the one who informed the police about their whereabouts.
By the end of the finale episode, Kisaki shoots Chifuyu and turns the gunshot towards Takemichi. At this cliffhanger, the first season ended. This scene also marked the end of the Valhalla Arc of the story. Both the Tokyo Manji gang and the Valhalla gang have been merged as one. Now, the story of Tokyo Revengers Season 2 will officially enter the Black Dragon Arc. For a start, the second season will set up Takemichi’s escape from Kisaki’s gunpoint. Draken will most probably save him. Later, he will decide to visit the past once again to set things right.
His first quest did not turn out successful as Kisaki laid waste to his endeavors by sending Mikey behind bars. Now, Takemichi will go further back in time to work with the Shiba brothers. Here, Takemichi will meet Hakkai Shiba and help him in defeating his brother. Taiju Shiba is the leader of the Black Dragon Gang. More and more pasts will intertwine as Takemichi opens the past chapters of the book.
Is There Enough Source Material?
In terms of source material, the Tokyo Revengers manga has more than enough source material for at least four seasons. The pilot season covered the first 77 chapters of the manga. In total, the ongoing text has 223 chapters out so far. Moreover, the manga will continue to release more chapters until the final act commences. So, Tokyo Revengers Season 2 will adapt its story from the Black Dragon and the Tenjiku arc of the manga. This implies that the story will be developed from chapter 78 to chapter 188. However, the second arc is comparatively longer than the first one. Thus, the second season might not finish the entire Tenjiku arc.
Tokyo Revengers Season 2: Release Date
As of now, there has been no official news of the release of the second season, set aside a release date. However, if we are to believe the production details of the second installment, Tokyo Revengers Season 2 might not be as far away. According to leaker sources, the sequel may slot a release date in the same schedule as before. Thus, fans can expect to see Season 2 in April 2022 at the earliest.
