Today, the first episode of the second season of the popular anime series, “Tokyo Revengers” was released around the world on Disney’s streaming services, on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ in many countries including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.
The series tells the story of Takemichi Hanagaki, who is already low and down on his luck, but becomes devastated to learn that the love of his life from his middle school years has been killed by the criminal Tokyo Manji Gang. While Takemichi waits for a train the very next day, he is pushed from behind into the path of an oncoming train. Prepared to die, he instead wakes up to find he has traveled twelve years into the past and is again a middle school student. Now, Takemichi can rewrite history by making different choices in the hopes of preventing the death of his sweetheart.
In the first episode, called “It Is What It Is”, back in the present, Takemichi, now an officer in Toman, is duped by Kisaki who points a gun at him.
The series stars A.J. Beckles, Lizzie Freeman, Aleks LeGriffin Puatu and John Omohundro. It’s been created by Ken Wakui.
Much like with another Japanese anime series, “Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War“, the show is getting a simultaneous global release, so is uploading to Disney+ at a different time than the usual upload time.
The first season of “Tokyo Revengers” is available to stream on Crunchyroll, and new episodes of the second season will be released weekly on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ in many countries around the world.
