What is Tokyo Revengers About?
Tokyo Revengers does a fantastic job of blending Sci-fi with high school delinquency. As strange as it sounds, landmark releases like Akira were a blend of these genres. Tokyo Revengers revolves around Takemichi Hanagaki, a 26-year-old delinquent who looks like a kid. A lot of people in the anime do but that is because of a twist. Takemichi has a little gang that he can rely on.
One day he discovers that his only girlfriend ever had been killed along with her sibling. Takemichi too dies moments after learning this but is somehow warped back in time to relive his high school days. He tried to inform people and prevent Hinata’s death. Takemichi, now able to travel through time, uses his ability to change the course of the future.
