The Christmas Showdown Arc is currently being produced into a TV anime
Even with the Tokyo Revengers TV anime on a short break while production on the Christmas Showdown Arc is underway, the manga series, created by Ken Wakui, is going strong, with the official Twitter account for the manga confirming that as of the current re-printing of the series, Tokyo Revengers has exceeded a whopping 50 million copies printed (physically) and sold (digitally).
This puts Tokyo Revengers on the same level as My Hero Academia, Berserk, and Yu Yu Hakusho. Not a bad group to be in! Sales of the manga series skyrocketed after the covers were changed and the TV anime began, with 40 million copies of the series sold after the anime started on TV in Japan. The last time we checked into the series was back in September when it had reached 40 million copies.
The first season of the TV anime adaptation of Tokyo Revengers streamed on Crunchyroll as it aired from April to September 2021, with the next arc currently in production. Crunchyroll describes the series as such:
Takemichi Hanagaki is a freelancer that's reached the absolute pits of despair in his life. He finds out that the only girlfriend he ever had in his life that he dated in middle school, Hinata Tachibana, had been killed by the ruthless Tokyo Manji Gang. The day after hearing about her death, he's standing on the station platform and ends up being pushed over onto the tracks by a herd of people. He closes his eyes thinking he's about to die, but when he opens his eyes back up, he somehow had gone back in time 12 years. Now that he's back living the best days of his life, Takemichi decides to get revenge on his life by saving his girlfriend and changing himself that he'd been running away from.
