Seven Seas Entertainment has announced that it has acquired the print license for the Tokyo Revengers manga by Ken Wakui, the critically acclaimed series about a man time-traveling back to his youth to save his girlfriend from a street gang–which inspired the wildly popular anime and live-action film.
Currently available in English in digital format by Kodansha Comics, Seven Seas will publish the series in print for the first time as 2-in-1 omnibus paperbacks, formatted for a beautiful oversized trim with all-new lettering. An exclusive Barnes & Noble limited edition of the Volume 1-2 omnibus with a variant cover and double-sided foldout poster will also be released on the same day for the same price (ISBN 978-1-68579-339-5).
Hanagaki Takemichi was once a low-life punk, but after biting off more than he could chew with a gang in middle school, he ran away from his old life. Now that he’s an adult, the gang that once terrorized him has grown into the largest gang in Tokyo, and they’ve started killing people–including his old girlfriend. After learning this news, a mysterious force on a train platform shoves Takemichi right in front of an approaching train. As his life flashes before his eyes, he blinks to find himself transported back to middle school, before he fled from the gang. Now he has the chance to right what went wrong all those years ago. Can he save his girlfriend’s life in the future–and what else might he change if he’s rewriting the past?
Seven Seas will publish the Tokyo Revengers manga series for the first time in print in North America in oversized omnibus editions. The Volume 1-2 omnibus, both standard edition and Barnes & Noble exclusive edition, will be released in May 2022 for $22.99 USA / $28.99 CAN.
