Tokyo Revengers Episode 2 Spoilers
The pilot episode begins with a 26-year-old Takemichi. Life hasn’t been fair to him. He lives in an apartment, the walls of which so thin that his neighbors can hear anytime he turns on his TV. He works at a DVD store where the younger manager constantly berates him. That day, when he lands on the track and watches as the train comes towards him at a horrifying speed, he waits for his unfulfilled life to flash before his eyes, but the only thing he sees is Hinata’s silhouette. Suddenly, he is in the body of his 14-year-old self, on his way with his friends to fight with boys from another school. However, older boys from that school with connections to the Manji Gang show up and thoroughly beat Takemichi and his friends.
Later, he visits Hinata, seeing her for the first time in years. He later protects her brother Naoto from some miscreants and tells him the truth. Naoto immediately believes him and calls him a time leaper. When they shake hands, Takemichi goes back to the future. He learns that Naoto, who was supposed to die with his sister, has survived and is now a police officer. It is Naoto who saved him from the oncoming train. However, Hinata is still dead.
In episode 2, Takemichi might encounter Manjirou “Mikey” Sano, the leader of Manji, and Ken “Draken” Ryuuguuji, Mikey’s lieutenant, while fighting against the leader of the bullies who thrashed him and his friends in episode 1. He might discard his fear and confusion and ardently attempt to save Hinata. Seeing Takemichi’s courage during the underground match and his refusal to go down, Mikey might recruit him for Manji, allowing him to change the gang from within so that Hinata won’t have to die.
