Tokyo Revengers Episode 6 Spoilers
In episode 5, Takemichi gets fired from his job after missing work for two straight weeks. He then meets Naoto, and they together deduce that if Takemichi manages to save Draken in the past, he will save Hinata in the present, and Atsushi will not commit suicide. After he leaps back to the past, Takemichi finds himself under a scantly-clad attractive woman. Panicking and wondering how this has happened, he flees from the room and later runs into Hinata, who claims that he seems to have two different personalities. This makes Takemichi reflect on his younger self.
After receiving a phone call from Draken, Takemichi heads to a nearby shrine. There, he learns the girl from earlier also belongs in the Manji or Toman Gang. It is revealed that the group is meeting to figure out a strategy for the Moebius Gang, a rival crew with members older than those of Toman. They attacked a friend of one of Toman’s members, Pah. After Pah admits that he wants revenge, Mikey declares that they will fight Moebius on August 3. A shocked Takemichi realizes that it’s the day when Mikey is supposed to kill Draken.
Takemichi subsequently starts following Draken, hoping to keep him safe. Mikey and Draken visit the hospital to see the girlfriend of Pah’s friend. Moebius’ leader, Nobutaka Osanai, raped her and put her in a coma. The girl’s father is there, and he lashes out against Drakan and Mikey, holding them responsible for what happened to his daughter. Although Mikey wants to deny it, Draken humbly accepts the responsibility. After the girls’ parents leave, Draken reminds Mikey that all their members have families and asks him to be more considerate. Takemichi, who has been listening in all along, realizes that Draken is Mikey’s conscience. It’s no wonder Mikey started walking on the wrong path after Draken’s death.
In episode 6, Takemichi might travel back to the future and meet Osanai to know what really happened on August 3 years ago. He and Naoto will likely deduce that someone is plotting from behind the shadows to get the two gangs to fight each other. Takemichi will probably go back to the past to figure out who the main culprit is.
