The anime show Tokyo Revengers revolves around a middle aged man in Japan who has bad luck. Takemichi Hanagaki has never really achieved anything in his life and is just trying to survive. That all changes when he finds out he has the ability to travel back in time after experiencing a near death situation. Being able to travel back in time,, he now wants to change the past in order to save the love of his life from the infamous Tokyo Manji Gang. 

During its manga release the fans were hyped for the anime adaptation. When released many fans were pretty happy with how the anime had been by the end of the first season. With good animation, a strong story, likable characters, and epic fights there was enough to keep the fans entertained. With the anime ending with the Valhalla Arc many fans were left in suspense with the cliffhanger ending. Those who only became fans because of the anime even went to the manga to continue the story of Takemichi. The anime has an overall of 4.7/5 from IMDb which is pretty good. 

With anime, first it’s a manga that is made. Manga are comics or graphic novels originating from Japan. With that being said, anime is animated works. So before an anime is animated, the manga should be released with some chapters. With Tokyo Revengers, while the anime has only one season complete, the manga is still going so the anime has something to work with that is canon to the story. The term arc refers to a significant story within an anime series that is given focus through more than one episode. The episodes within an arc are all interconnected and generally follow a linear progression, having a beginning and an end. The arc story may or may not be part of the overall plot.

With the show being so popular there will be a season two following up with the Black Dragons arc. Although there isn’t a confirmed date for season two the studio Liden Films confirmed that they’re already working on animating the Black Dragons arc, although fans don’t know if the most popular arc will also be animated with season two that arc being Tenjiku arc.
