Tokyo Revengers (Japanese: 東京卍リベンジャーズ) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Ken Wakui. It has been serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine since March 2017. An anime television series adaptation by Liden Films aired from April to September 2021. A live-action film adaptation was released in Japan in July 2021.
The story revolves around Takemichi Hanagaki, a freeter who one day learns his ex-girlfriend, Hinata Tachibana, as well as her younger brother Naoto, have been killed by the Tokyo Manji Gang. When Takemichi is pushed in front of a train, he teleports exactly 12 years into the past to 2005 and relives his middle school years. Takemichi discovers he can go back and forth time by shaking hands with Naoto, so he continuously time travels to stop a series of incidents revolving around the Tokyo Manji Gang and inevitably Hinata's and Naoto's deaths.
