The official website of the anime adaptation of the manga series “Tokyo Revengers” announced today that the series will be broadcast on Japanese television from April 2021. You can watch a new promo video later in the article.
Tokyo Revengers Release Date April 2021
“Tokyo Revengers” is directed by Koichi Hatsumi (“Deadman Wonderland”) at Studio LIDEN FILMS. Yasuyuki Muto (“Afro Samurai”) writes the screenplay, while Kenichi Ohnuki (“Golden Kamuy”) and Keiko ‘Ace Attorney’ act as character designers. Hiroaki Tsutsumi (“Dr. STONE”) composes the music.
Ken Wakui has been publishing the original manga in “Weekly Shonen Magazine” since March 2017. The Japanese publisher Kodansha has published 17 volumes so far. An English-language publication is published by Kodansha Comics.
A live-action film will hit Japanese cinemas next year after it failed to meet its original October 2020 deadline due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
