As we know, the Tokyo Revengers manga recently entered its final arc, and it’s outselling most manga at the moment. The anime concluded with episode 24, and there’s been no news of a sequel yet. The live-action movie also did really well, and 40 million copies sounds like Tokyo Revengers definitely has the fandom for more content.
In case you can’t wait for the sequel, you can catch up to the manga instead. Kodansha publishes the manga digitally, while Crunchyroll streamed the first season of the anime. The story:
The big battle between Toman and Valhalla ends in Toman’s victory. When Takemichi returns to the future… he’s one of Toman’s top brass! Some of them, unfamiliar to Takemichi, are former members of the Black Dragons, creating a divide among the admins. At that moment, Kisaki shows up. And what shocking truth will Naoto reveal?! (Kodansha)
How far can it go above 40 million copies will be interesting, and let’s hope Tokyo Revengers has an awesome conclusion coming!
