The official website for Tokyo Revengers 2, the two sequel live-action films based on Ken Wakui's Tokyo Revengers manga, began streaming a new video on Thursday. The video announces that the band SUPER BEAVER is performing the films' theme songs. SUPER BEAVER performs the theme song "Gradation" for the first film (as heard in the video), while the band also performs the theme song "Hakanakunai" (Not Merely Fleeting) for the second film. The first sequel film Chi no Halloween -Unmei- (Bloody Halloween -Fate-) will open on April 21, while the second film Chi no Halloween -Kessen- (Bloody Halloween -Decisive Battle-) will open on June 30. Takumi Kitamura is returning to play Takemichi Hanagaki in the sequel films. Other returning cast members include Ryō Yoshizawa as Mikey and Yuki Yamada as Draken. Director Tsutomu Hanabusa and producer Shota Okada are also returning. Kento Nagayama joins the cast as Keisuke Baji, while Nijirō Murakami also joins as Kazutora Hanemiya, and Mahiro Takasugi joins as Chifuyu Matsuno. The first film opened in Japan in July 2021 and was the #1 live-action film in Japan in 2021. Wakui launched the manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in March 2017. Kodansha published the manga's 30th compiled book volume on November 17. The manga ended on November 16, although Weekly Shōnen Magazine is serializing the Tokyo Revengers Extra spinoff manga about the founders of the Tokyo Manji Gang. Kodansha USA Publishing is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the story: Watching the news, Takemichi Hanagaki learns that his girlfriend from way back in middle school, Hinata Tachibana, has died. The only girlfriend he ever had was just killed by a villainous group known as the Tokyo Manji Gang. He lives in a crappy apartment with thin walls, and his six-years-younger boss treats him like an idiot. Plus, he's a complete and total virgin … At the height of his rock-bottom life, he suddenly time-leaps twelve years back to his middle school days!! To save Hinata, and change the life he spent running away, hopeless part-timer Takemichi must aim for the top of Kanto's most sinister delinquent gang!! The manga's television anime adaptation premiered in April 2021. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. The anime's Tokyo Revengers: Christmas Showdown arc premiered on January 7.
