A special premiere of the anime, which is a recap of the initial three episodes, is currently available on Muse Asia for Southeast Asia audiences.

Muse Asia describes the anime as:

Takemichi Hanagaki is a part-time timer whose life is at rock bottom.

Later he learns that the only girlfriend he ever had in his life whom he dated back in middle school, Hinata Tachibana had been killed by the “Tokyo Manji Gang,” a group of vicious criminals.

The day after he learned about the incident, Takemichi’s standing on a station platform and got his back pushed onto the railroad by someone. Thinking he would die from the fall, he closes his eyes. However, when he opens it back, he somehow finds himself traveled back twelve years into the past.

Now that he returned to the peak of his life, the middle school days twelve years ago, in order to save his girlfriend, in order to change himself who had been running away all these time, Takemichi started his Revenge on his life!

Warner Bros. Japan is making the live-action adaptation of the manga, which is scheduled to premiere in Japan on October 9, 2021. Tsutomu Hanabusa (live-action Kakegurui) is directing the film. Filming began earlier last year but was halted in May 2020 to ensure the health and safety of all cast and crew members. 

Tokyo Revengers debuted in Kodansha’s Weekly Shōnen Magazine in March 2017, and Kodansha published the manga’s 15th compiled book volume in December 2019.
