With the highly anticipated second season of the Tokyo Revengers anime coming out in a few days, fans have been talking about the show nonstop on social media. Manga readers and anime fans are both excited about the second season, and manga readers promise anime fans that it will be of the highest quality.
But some fans of Tokyo Revengers who only watch the anime seem to be interested in the status of the series as both an anime and a manga. Even though the second season of the anime is about to start, the manga ended in late 2022 after, to put it lightly, a pretty rough ending arc.
So, even though the anime series will keep adapting the manga until further notice, the manga itself has reached its end. Read this article to find out what’s going on with the Tokyo Revengers anime and manga series.
Tokyo Revengers Ending
On November 16, 2022, the 278th and last chapter of the Tokyo Revengers manga were published, concluding the series’ controversial final arc.
Fans believed that author and illustrator Ken Wakui had lost interest in his own work or had run out of ideas, which contributed significantly to the controversy surrounding the last arc.
Just caught up to Tokyo Revengers. I knew people were mad about the ending, so I wanted to check it out, but…
Holy heck that was awful.
I should’ve just dropped it at chapter 200 like I originally did😭😭

Fans also highlighted problems with a lack of explanation, a problem that plagued the series’ last issues in particular. The fact that protagonists Mikey and Takemichi are brought back in time without their involvement is a prime example. Instead, they and Wakui opted to call it a miracle and offer no additional explanation, which infuriated a significant segment of the fanbase.

While fans liked the manga’s happily-ever-after conclusion, many wished it had been explained more thoroughly. Likewise, many fans resented the abrupt face changes that numerous characters underwent. By becoming friends at an early age, Takemichi and Mikey appeared to have miraculously resolved issues such as broken households and violent parents.
Fans can at least look forward to what will likely be a long and successful run for the anime version of the series. The first season, which ran from April 11, 2021, to September 19, 2021, was one of the most popular of the Spring 2021 season. The anime version of the series got a lot of attention, which is likely why the second season was announced so fast.
Also, even when the second season is over, the anime will still have plenty of good chapters to adapt. Thankfully, the sudden drop in quality of the Tokyo Revengers manga is mostly limited to the last part of the series.
