Tokyo Revengers Plot
A 26-year-old freeter named Takemichi Hanagaki discovers one day that Hinata Tachibana and her younger brother Naoto had been murdered by the Tokyo Manji Gang. Takemichi teleports to 2005 exactly 12 years in the past when he is shoved in front of a train. Takemichi visits with Naoto while reliving his middle school days and tells him the precise day he and Hinata would pass away. As soon as they shake hands, Takemichi is abruptly flung back in time, causing a temporal paradox in which Naoto lives and becomes a detective.
Bloody Halloween /Valhalla arc
When Takemichi arrives in the present, he discovers that Hinata and his companions continue to perish according to the current chronology. Takemichi returns to the past with just the knowledge that Tetta Kisaki turned the Tokyo Manji Gang into a violent group. Kisaki has just joined the gang and is utilising Pah-absence chin’s to become the new captain of his division. Furthermore, former Tokyo Manji Gang co-founder Kazutora Hanemiya recruited first division captain Keisuke Baji, who is departing to join Valhalla. If Takemichi can get Baji back, Mikey swears to him that he will kick Kisaki out of the gang. With that, Takashi Mitsuya’s division formally accepts Takemichi as a member of the Tokyo Manji Gang.
Christmas Showdown /Black Dragons arc
Returning to the present, Takemichi finds that his friends are still killed, and the Tokyo Manji Gang has expanded into a sizable criminal enterprise as a result of absorbing the Black Dragons. When he goes back in time, he discovers that Hakkai Shiba is forced to defect from the Tokyo Manji Gang and join the Black Dragons on the orders of his abusive older brother and the current leader of the Black Dragons, Taiju, a development that has an impact on the merger of the Tokyo Manji Gang and the Black Dragons.
When Takemichi arrives in the present, Tenjiku had already absorbed the Tokyo Manji Gang following the “Kanto incident,” which left Mikey feeling dejected to the point where he killed all of his pals. Takemichi and Naoto discover that Kisaki is a member and that Shinichiro founded the Black Dragons while they look into Tenjiku. Takemichi goes back in time to save them both after they are ambushed by Tenjiku members and are fatally wounded. Hinata hears Takemichi lamenting both the fact that Naoto had been time-traveling and his passing.
When Takemichi returns to the present, he discovers that his buddies are still alive and prospering, but Mikey, who hasn’t spoken to any of them in 12 years, has started a new gang called Bonten. Takemichi can no longer access the past through Naoto, but when he stops Mikey from falling from a building, he unexpectedly travels back in time to 2008, 10 years earlier. Takemichi, who is now in high school, finds out that Mikey’s new gang, the Kanto Manji Gang, and Rokuhara Tandai, Brahman, are currently engaged in a power battle as a result of the dissolution of the Tokyo Manji Gang.
