Tokyo Revengers mangaka Ken Wakui confirmed that the manga will enter its Final arc in Weekly Shounen Magazine in the next issue on June 2, 2021!

According to the image shared, the next arc of the Tokyo Revengers manga will be the last. Ken Wakui’s sci-fi and juvenile delinquency story has been one of the most compelling releases since it first debuted in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen magazine in 2017. An anime television series adaptation by Liden Films also premiered in April 2021.

Tokyo Revengers franchise has also announced a live-action film adaptation in Japan for July 2021.

On Wednesday, the official website for Warner Bros. Japan began streaming a character promotional video for the film. This is the first original Tokyo Revenger’s character PV showing the relationship between the characters Takemichi and Hinata.

These character PVs will be released for 7 consecutive weeks which started with the first Takemichi x Hinata video.

The film was slated to open in Japan on October 9 last year, but was delayed to 2021 due to the effects of the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Japan. The production halted filming in April 2020 due to COVID-19. The film will now open on July 9, 2021.

MAL describes the story of Tokyo Revengers as,

Takemichi Hanagaki’s second year of middle school was the highest point in his life. He had respect, a gang of friends he could count on, and even a girlfriend. But that was twelve years ago. Today, he’s a nobody: a washed-up nonentity made fun of by children and always forced to apologize to his younger boss. A sudden news report on the Tokyo Manji Gang’s cruel murder of the only girlfriend he ever had alongside her brother only adds insult to injury. Half a second before a train ends his pitiful life for good, Takemichi flashes back to that same day twelve years ago, when he was still dating Hinata Tachibana.

After being forced to relive the very same day that began his downward spiral, Takemichi meets Hinata’s younger brother. Without thinking, he admits to his seeming death before flashing back to the past. Takemichi urges him to protect his sister before inexplicably returning to the future. Miraculously, he isn’t dead. Stranger still, the future has changed. It seems as though Takemichi can alter the flow of time. Given the chance to prevent his ex-girlfriend’s tragic death at the hands of the Tokyo Manji Gang, Takemichi decides to fly through time to change the course of the future.
