Tokyo Revengers: The Story so far
Naoto informs Takemichi about Mikey’s killings. During their meeting, Mikey asks Takemichi to kill him. Takemichi tries to talk him down but to no avail. Witnessing the tension, Naoto shoots Mikey and he dies in Takemichi’s arms. Takemichi decides to take over the Tokyo Manji gang, to avoid the same future again. Following this decision, comes an attack from the Tenjiku Gang.
Things start to heat up as Takemichi finds out that Kisaki is part of the gang as well. Adding to the fire is the leader of Tenjiku, Izana Kurokawa. The last episode of Christmas Showdown teased the Tenjiku Arc extremely well. After Mikey’s death and Toman falling apart, Takemichi is once again ready to switch up the turn of events to save his friend.
