Why Did Takemichi And Hinata Break Up?
In chapter 89 of the Tokyo Revengers manga, Takemichi is asking Hinata about Kisaki. When she tells him about her early school days, Takemichi learns of a surprising revelation. Hinata tells him that she knew Kisaki from Cram school. She tells him how Kisaki was a very studious boy. He was treated as a nerdy weirdo and an outcast by almost everyone but Hinata. She then tells Takemichi that Kisaki was a really good kid. Nakamichi is taken aback by this; he’s surprised to hear it. He thinks to himself why Hinata refers to Kisaki as a good kid. As far as Takemichi knows, Kisaki is the “inhuman bastard that killed Hina.” Takemichi further inquires Hinata on Kisaki. He asks her when exactly they met. Blushed, Hinata tells him of the day they met each other for the first time.
She then tells him how she fell in love with him right on that day. Takemichi gets emotional, and his memory from that far back also starts popping up. He remembers how some girls told him that this Tachibana girl is into him.
