Tokyo Revengers Anime's 3rd Promo Video Reveals Bloody Halloween Arc

On Saturday, an event for Ken Wakui's Tokyo Revengers television anime presented the third promotional video, third key visual, and details on the next ending theme music. The video gives a sneak peek at the upcoming Bloody Halloween arc, which will premiere in July.
The trio Nakimushi plays "Tokyo Wonder," the new ending theme song that will debut in the 13th episode on July 3. On July 2, it will also be available on digital music providers.

The manga is being published digitally in English by Kodansha Comics, which summarises the plot as follows:
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!!
The anime is directed by Koichi Hatsumi (Berserk: The Golden Age Arc I - The Egg of the King, Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga, Deadman Wonderland, Gangsta.) and the series scripts are written by Yasuyuki Muto (Basilisk, Deadman Wonderland, Sengoku Basara - Samurai Kings). The characters are being designed by Kenichi Ohnuki (Golden Kamuy, Gundam Build Fighters) and Keikota (Ace Attorney, Hyakko). The sound is directed by Satoki Iida, while the music is composed by Hiroaki Tsutsumi (Children of the Whales, Dr. Stone, Jujutsu Kaisen).
Wakui first published the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shnen Magazine in March 2017, and the manga's 22nd volume was released on April 16. More than 4 million copies of the series have been sold. On April 13, Kodansha Comics released the 20th volume in English. On June 2, the manga's last arc began. The manga is being adapted into a live-action picture by Warner Bros. Japan, which was set to debut in Japan in October 2020 but will now debut on July 9. The film is directed by Tsutomu Hanabusa (live-action Kakegurui, Miseinen dakedo Kodomo ja Nai). The production started filming last winter but stopped in April 2020 to focus on the cast and crew's health. 

From 2005 through 2013, Wakui serialised the Shinjuku Swan manga in Kodansha's Young Magazine in 38 volumes. In 2007, the manga was adapted into a six-episode live-action television series, as well as two live-action films released in May 2015 and January 2016.
