What is Revenger About?
Raizo Kurima’s clan is hit by a series of assassinations. The grand samurai clan’s soul survivor chances upon the master assassin Yuen Usui who belongs to the organization called Revenger, who true to their name, exacts revenge on behalf of those with no power. Betrayed by those he trusted, Raizo becomes a part of the hitman organization, still sworn to find the conspiracy behind his clan’s massacre.
The Ribenjiya general store acts as a front for the organization to work in the shadows. Raizo becomes an employee there to work with the organization where he finds a group of eccentric people who seem to have all kinds of trades and yet work together. The five men form an alliance with friendship at the centre, promising revenge for those who seek it.

Revenger on the other hand involves samurai clans and a quest for revenge. The anime showcases vigilantes belonging to a historical period with politics and murder at the helm of everything. At some level, both shows do address revenge but go on their own paths.
