After waking up in the past 12 years, he mulls about his friends’ ultimate fate and makes an effort to stop a bad situation from occurring.
What Happened in the Tokyo Revengers’ Ending?
When Takemichi arrives in the present, he discovers that all of his buddies are still alive and prospering, but Mikey, who hasn’t spoken to any of them in 12 years, has started a new street gang, Bonten. When he prevents Mikey from falling from a skyscraper, Takemichi, who can no longer access the past via Naoto, unexpectedly travels back in time to 2008. The Kanto Manji Gang, Mikey’s new gang, and Rokuhara Tandai are now engaged in a power battle as a result of the dissolution of the Tokyo Manji Gang, which Takemichi discovers when he enrolls in high school.
Takemichi joins Senju Kawaragi’s Brahman organization in an effort to find Mikey and subsequently gains the power to predict the future. Takemichi saves Senju from peril, but Draken loses his life defending them. As a consequence, the three gangs engage in the Battle of the 3 Deities, which culminates with Mikey murdering South, the leader of Rokuhara Tandai.
In the meantime, Senju dissolves Brahman to prevent Mikey from killing Takemichi, and the Kanto Manji Gang triumphs and swallows the Rokuhara Tandai. Takemichi brings back the Tokyo Manji Group a month later and dares the Kanto Manji Group to a duel. Sanzu tries to murder the Tokyo Manji Group by ramming a locomotive into the battleground.
Takemichi manages to stop it, but Kakucho perishes as a result. Sanzu is stopped by Taiju when she returns, but Mikey wins the battle. Takemichi can foresee the future and anticipate Mikey’s actions. In the course of their struggle, Mikey confesses that Shinichiro had already traveled through time to save him and that, in the original version of events, Mikey had been paralyzed after tumbling down the stairs.
Will there be a Tokyo Revengers Season 2?
As the Tokyo Revengers ended in such a tragic scenario, everyone is expecting a season 2 for the story to continue with the question that what will happen to Mikey. The Good news is that the Tokyo Revengers season 2 is officially confirmed! Season two of this show is expected to be released by winter 2023.
Though the dates are not yet confirmed, it is already getting everyone’s hopes up. Tokyo Revengers Season 2 will most likely be a single cour anime season because the Christmas Showdown arc is around the same duration as the Valhalla arc. Therefore we can expect 10 to 13 episodes in this season.
