Hit manga ‘Tokyo Revengers’ to get a spinoff named ‘Tokyo Revengers – Baji Keisuke Kara no Tegami’

Tokyo Revengers manga spinoff Tokyo Revengers – Baji Keisuke Kara no Tegami (A Letter from Keisuke Baji) will make its debut later in the summer this year. The spinoff manga will appear in this year’s 35th issue of Weekly Shonen Magazine on 27 July. It will primarily focus on the characters Keisuke Baji and Chifuyu Matsuno, who are the leaders of Tokyo Manji Gang’s first division. Under the supervision of series creator Ken Wakui, Yukinori Kawaguchi is writing the story. The announcement was made via the franchise’s Twitter account. 

Wakui’s ongoing Tokyo Revengers manga first appeared in Weekly Shonen Magazine in March 2017 and has since delivered 28 volumes of content. The spinoff storyline will follow the two characters from their first encounter to the conclusion shown in Tokyo Revengers manga/anime. Tokyo Revengers recently got an English print release and the anime revealed that the second season will come out in 2023. LIDENFILMS previously produced a 24-episode anime adaptation of the series, which is currently available on Crunchyroll. 

The official synopsis of Tokyo Revengers reads: Watching the news, Takemichi Hanagaki learns that his girlfriend from way back in middle school, Hinata Tachibana, has died. The only girlfriend he ever had was just killed by a villainous group known as the Tokyo Manji Gang. He lives in a crappy apartment with thin walls, and his six-years-younger boss treats him like an idiot. Plus, he’s a complete and total virgin … At the height of his rock-bottom life, he suddenly time-leaps twelve years back to his middle school days!! To save Hinata, and change the life he spent running away, hopeless part-timer Takemichi must aim for the top of Kanto’s most sinister delinquent gang!

With over 50 million copies in circulation, Tokyo Revengers is Kodansha’s most successful series since Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan, which is still one of the best-selling manga of all time with over 100 million copies sold.
