Tokyo Revengers Episode 17 Spoilers
Episode 16 takes the audience to the early days of Toman. Mikey meets up with his friends on their way to the beach. His old and slow moped earns him their ridicule. It is revealed that he is holding off purchasing a motorcycle until he has enough money to get a Honda CB250T. On their way, a group of older delinquents accosts them, but they leave after Mikey threatens them. The moped runs out of gas before they reach the beach, and Mikey tricks Baji to get the moped to a gas station. That delinquent group from earlier finds Baji and beats him up, but he refuses to let them touch the moped. Mikey arrives and destroys the moped and proceeds to beat the older delinquents for damaging the vehicle.
Kazutora declares that he wants to get Mikey a CB250T and takes Baji with him. The latter soon learns that his friend intends to steal the motorcycle. They break into a shop that has one. However, the owner hears the commotion and comes out. A horrified Baji realizes that he knows this person. Rushing the shop owner from behind, Kazutora hits him in the head and knocks him out. As the man bleeds to death on the floor, Baji reveals that this is Mikey’s brother, Shinichiro. Kazutora subsequently has a nervous breakdown and decides that it’s all Mikey’s fault. The police arrive and arrest the two friends. As they are led out, Baji sees Mikey in the crowd and asks him for forgiveness.
In Episode 17, the story will likely return to Takemichi’s past. After learning everything, he might think it will be impossible to get Baji back into the Toman. Chifuyu Matsuno, Baji’s second-in-command in the 1st division of Toman, might visit Takemichi to say that he thinks that Baji has some ulterior motives for his actions.
