Takemichi needs to save Baji, Drakken, Mickey, Hinata and Akkun from the future. Only he has the capacity to travel back and forth in time and figure out a way to change what will happen. Can he do that and make Toman great again?


As always, Tokyo Revengers is high on emotions, action and drama. You get to see this from the start when it comes to season 2, which takes off right from where season 1 left off.

The drama and suspense develops instantly as Kisaki calls Takemichi his hero. While Takemichi has been working on getting closer to Toman, the mystery behind the word is questioned and it is sure to pique your curiousity.

Kazutora, who was imprisoned, is back and how! He leads the story ahead and one just cannot complain.

Chifuyu and Baji are missing this time. Whether they are dead or hiding, is yet to be revealed. The same holds true for Toman leader Mikey. The viewers get to see a glimpse of his transformation on the show and that's seriously not enough, given how he's the central character along with Drakken and of course, Takemichi.

Pah-chin and Peh-yan, who also played important roles in season 1, are back. Rather, they are not.

Black Dragon, which caused a lot of chaos in Toman, is also back. There is a surprise from their side and it isn't super pretty.

Naoto has a different personality this time around. His only aim is to save his sister, or is it? Find out.

Hinata Tachibana and Akkun aka Atsushi Sato, who cause the whole storyline to fluctuate, are back. They are, however, seen only in glimpses but those are also enough to take the story forward.

The series is all hearts. It takes you to the lowest point and brings you right back up.

The show, as always, creates an air of mystery and keeps you longing for more. There's a surprise towards the end and we don't mean the end credits. Watch out for this one!


Episode 1 of Tokyo Revengers season 2 offers so much that you would not want to keep your phones even away if you are a fan of the anime. Do watch this one.
