A review of Tokyo Revengers which is also known by Tokyo Manji Revengers. It is an action-drama manga created and illustrated by author Wakui Ken. It revolves around a 26-year-old man who dies and is sent back 12 years into the past. When I saw the anime release I knew it would be good and needless to say once I caught up to the latest episode… I just had to find out more! It is very enjoyable to read and has an amazing storyline to follow which keeps the reader interested with twists and turns! A must-read If you cannot wait for the next episode of the anime!
Essentially the manga consists of a mixture of things which I cannot go into detail about as it would spoil it… but just know that picking up this manga is going to be a blessing and you will find yourself finishing all of the current chapters and craving more!

What Is Good About Tokyo Revengers (東京卍復仇者)
Having started watching the anime I quickly finished the episodes available at the time… I also found that I just needed more. A whole whopping 180+ chapters more in manga form… from the available episode at the time of course. I finished both the anime and manga in the space of 2 days. I just loved the story so far and cannot wait to read more as new chapters become available.
I love all of the characters, I feel that there are barely any characters that I actually dislike, however, to avoid spoilers I won’t name any. Just know that even more awesome characters get introduced in the future, so be sure to keep reading! The author really makes each character unique and gives them a special twist keeping them fresh!
I really love the fight scenes, this is what made me take an interest in the anime originally. I was surprised at how well the anime adaptation was made based of the manga. A very good job well done by the creators of the anime. Back to the manga, in the future the fights get so good that it’ll make you want to keep reading and reading until there is nothing left to read!
What Is Bad About Tokyo Revengers (東京卍復仇者)
The one thing I found annoying in both the anime and the manga is the stupid faces and behaviour of the main protagonist, Takemichi Hanagaki. However, this is more of a personal thing rather than a deal-breaker.
Overall, if you love the anime so far and want more as I did – pick the manga up… do it and you won’t regret it! Be aware that episode 9 is around chapter 20ish in the manga and there are nearly 200 chapters available… so if you cannot wait for future episodes and seasons, pick up the manga and give it the read it deserves!
