The manga “Tokyo Revengers” explodes in popularity.

It turned out that the cumulative circulation of Kodansha’s manga “Tokyo Revengers” has exceeded 14.5 million. Weekly Shonen Magazine editorial department revealed. The number of copies increased significantly after the anime broadcast in April.

This work has been serialized in Weekly Shonen Magazine since March 2017. This is the latest work by Ken Wakui of “Shinjuku Swan”, which depicts a scout man and a yakuza in Kabukicho. Official Twitter reported that it had exceeded 10 million copies at the end of March.

When the anime broadcast started, its popularity accelerated, such as being ranked high in the Netflix overall ranking. The comics were repeatedly reprinted, and the number of copies increased sharply. The editorial department of Weekly Shonen Magazine is also said to have amazing momentum.

A live-action movie was scheduled to be released in the fall of 2008, but it was postponed to July 2009 due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection. If the good performance of the animation is carried over to the live-action film, further progress can be expected.
