Rurouni Kenshin won’t be the only live-action manga IP that Warner Bros. Japan is committed to ramping up in 2021. For this, we now leave it to the first short teaser for Tokyo Revengers, based on Ken Wakui’s 2017 manga.
Director Tsutomu Hanabusa, the mind behind bringing character favorite Yumeko Jabami in the live-action Kakegurui series and films of late, sits at the helm with actor Takumi Kitamura (Underdog) leading the cast for a July 2021 release date to be announced.
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!!
