Get ready to mark your calendars because the highly anticipated Season 2 of Tokyo Revengers is finally premiering on January 7th as part of the Winter 2023 lineup of new anime releases. As some have been anxiously waiting to find out what happens next in this drama-filled series, here’s a quick recap of the first season and what to look forward to in the next.
What Happened So Far
It feels like an eternity since we last spent time in the world of Ken Wakui’s Tokyo Revengers. Toman and Valhalla now proudly stands at 450 people, with Kisaki hailed as a hero after the events of Bloody Halloween. Takemichi is now the leader of the first division while Chifuyu took over as his second-in-command. Then he travels to the present to learn that Toman has grown even more powerful and influential. However, in this timeline, Mikey has vanished and Draken has been executed with Kisaki left in charge. In the end, Kisaki kills adult Chifuyu and prepares to shoot Takemichi for opposing him for the past 12 years. He confesses to orchestrating Baji’s death and calls him “my hero” before the screen fades to black as a gunshot is the last sound left with the viewers.
What to Expect
The second season of the anime will adapt the “Christmas Showdown” Arc and will introduce a slew of new characters. Yet, there are also some major changes to the previous cast, as Tatsuhisa Suzuki, the original voice actor for Draken, was involved in a big cheating scandal and multiple suicide attempts. As a result, he has been replaced by Masaya Fukunishi. The new cast includes:
- Mikako Komatsu will play Yuzuha Shiba.
- Tomokazu Sugita will play Taiju Shiba.
- Junya Enoki will play Inui Seisyu
- Natsuki Hanae will play Kokonoi Hajime
- Tasuku Hatanaka will play Hakkai Shiba
