Tokyo Revengers has come to an finish with the latest chapter of the sequence hitting the pages of Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Journal with its remaining chapter, and the ending might need been torn aside by followers on-line however it actually is not as dangerous as you would possibly assume. Ken Wakui’s mix of science fiction and highschool delinquent motion took off with followers fairly rapidly when it first debuted a couple of years in the past, and has solely gotten larger because of the profitable debut of the anime adaptation bringing the story to life. Nevertheless it seems that it hasn’t all been a success with followers.

Tokyo Revengers has been receiving fairly a little bit of criticism from followers over the previous couple of years particularly because the manga kicked into its remaining few arcs, and the ending particularly has been hit with quite a lot of this because it rewrote time to present each character within the sequence the pleased ending that Takemichi Hanegaki had been combating for. However whereas followers had been declaring that this deus ex machina of an ending betrays the remainder of the sequence, it is type of the proper reflection of the sequence’ preliminary idea as an entire.

Why is Tokyo Revengers’ Ending Controversial?

Tokyo Revengers first started with Takemichi Hanegaki finds out that his center faculty sweetheart, Hinata Tachibana, and her brother Naoto have been killed by the lethal Tokyo Manji gang. When he is abruptly pushed in entrance of a prepare, he goes again in time to his center faculty days and realizes he can use this time journey energy to vary the longer term and save the lady he as soon as cherished from her destiny. This was the central conceit of the sequence up till Takemichi was really in a position to save Hinata from her dying main into the Tenjiku Arc.

It was at this level when Takemichi realized that each one of his buddies have been pleased, however the Tokyo Manji Gang chief Mikey had change into a fair deadlier felony. And thus he then decides to return in time once more so as to save Mikey from this darkish destiny. It is right here where the sequence strikes away from its central conceit and begins to lose the time journey threads that made it so compelling within the first half of the sequence. That is possible why followers ultimately do not like the best way all of it involves an finish.

The precise ending of the sequence is a bit rushed within the grand scheme of issues as Takemichi will get collectively all the previous members of the Tokyo Manji Gang collectively (which has a unique line up of allies as a result of shifting time strains), and after a large battle with three different gangs, and one remaining one to determine management over all of it, Takemich and Mikey have one remaining confrontation. It is right here that Takemichi discovers that Mikey’s darkish destiny and extra violent impulses are literally the karmic results of his older brother, Shinichiro (who died within the authentic timeline) utilizing time journey powers himself.

It was defined that earlier than Takemichi acquired a hold of the time journey powers, Mikey’s older brother ended up residing a wholly totally different life where Mikey was in an accident and was paralyzed because of this. Then utilizing this energy to rewrite the previous, he brings it to the unique timeline earlier than Takemichi began messing with it. Nevertheless it left a darkish cloud hanging round Mikey that influenced his actions and made him extra violent with every passing yr it grew stronger.

It was this darkish being that was on the heart of the ultimate battle between Takemichi and Mikey. Within the penultimate chapters resulting in the manga’s ending, Takemichi and Mikey battle and Takemichi’s begins to achieve the facility to see sufficient into the longer term to keep away from Mikey’s assaults. Ultimately it will get so heated that Mikey stabs Takemichi straight via the chest. As Takemichi bleeds out, Mikey breaks out of his darkish cloud and begins to cry over what he had executed.

As Takemichi dies, Mikey grabs his hand and the each of them journey again to their childhoods and understand they’ve gone a lot additional than Takemichi ever did on his personal. That is where it began to lose followers. The important thing factor to notice for the finale as the ultimate arcs of the sequence arrange that Takemichi went into the previous when he grabbed Mikey’s hand, and as established earlier than, it merely occurred once more once they touched arms on Takemichi’s dying breaths.

Since they have been already previously, they simply went again additional as a substitute of going again to the longer term. Usin g this chance, the 2 of them determine to transform the whole lot to be sure that nobody dies, nobody struggles, they usually construct Tokyo Manji to such a top that when it dissolves, everybody concerned in it goes on to steer their finest lives. It is a fully pleased ending where Takemichi and Hinata are married, and everybody ever concerned within the sequence is there to attend.

It is the type of pleased ending that the sequence has been shooting for for the reason that very starting. Followers have seen how the time journey parts have been fuzzy from the very starting, and the Deus Ex Machia ending is in the end the purpose. It is the type of impossibly pleased future that solely time journey may handle. It is a fantasy constructed on the type of idealism that the delinquent striving period is a mirrored image of. Tokyo Revengers is all about getting “revenge” on destiny itself, so rewriting time to make it occur is the purpose.


It might sound hole, however that is Tokyo Revengers. Takemichi’s supreme world is one which he fought for via a number of timelines, and because of this we now have seen him undergo many dangerous endings, violent deaths, and extra as he tried to make everybody’s futures brilliant. Something apart from a wildly pleased ending that appeared to return out of nowhere would really be hole. He merely could not fail in spite of everything of this. Certain the sequence might need been higher off ending after Hinata was saved, however that is the best way it’s.
