“Takemichi Hanagaki decides to travel back in time to prevent a Christmas night face-off between his fellow Toman member Hakkai Shiba and Hakkai’s older brother, Black Dragon leader Taiju Shiba, a bully who has abused his younger siblings for years. However, it’s not easy for Takemichi to change this part of his past.”
Season 2 of ‘Tokyo Revengers’ will adapt The Christmas showdown arc, otherwise known as the Black Dragons arc of the manga. It focuses on the battle between the Tokyo Manji gang and the 10th generation of the Black Dragons Gang.
The characters deal with the aftermath of the Bloody Halloween arc as Takemichi forms a new camaraderie with Hakkai, the vice-captain of Tokyo Manji Gang’s second division. He shares a volatile relationship with her elder brother Taiju Shiba, the Leader of the 10th Generation of the Black Dragons.
All hell breaks loose when the latter orders Hakkai to join the Black Dragons.
