Tokyo Revengers Surge Prompts Major Reprint

The first season of Tokyo Revengers landed earlier this year from animation studio Liden Films, giving fans a brand new franchise that focused on an interesting tale in which a young man was sent spiraling into his own past, given the opportunity to stop the formation of a gang in order to save the love of his life. With the manga continuing to this day from creator Ken Wakui and a live-action adaptation hitting Japan via a feature-length film, it’s no surprise to see that the series has seen its manga sales rise as a result, and it seems that all volumes of the printed story have been reprinted.

With the first season becoming one of the biggest anime series of the year, fans have been waiting to hear whether or not the show will be coming back for a second. While there have been rumors that a second season of the series is already being worked on by the animation studio responsible for its first, it’s a long way from a confirmation. With the recent live-action movie becoming the highest-grossing live-action film in Japan, the future looks bright for the story of Takemichi Hanagaki as he continues to try to save the life of his ex-girlfriend.

Twitter User Manga Mogura confirmed that all the volumes of Tokyo Revengers’ manga are currently being reprinted, giving fans of the time travel series the opportunity to dive in once again.

If you’re unfamiliar with the story of Tokyo Revengers, the official description for the time-traveling crime series reads as such:

“Watching the news, Takemichi Hanagaki learns that his girlfriend from way back in middle school, Hinata Tachibana, has died. The only girlfriend he ever had was just killed by a villainous group known as the Tokyo Manji Gang. He lives in a crappy apartment with thin walls, and his six-years-younger boss treats him like an idiot. Plus, he’s a complete and total virgin … At the height of his rock-bottom life, he suddenly time-leaps twelve years back to his middle school days!! To save Hinata, and change the life he spent running away, hopeless part-timer Takemichi must aim for the top of Kanto’s most sinister delinquent gang!!”
