My other Tokyo Revengers chapter reviews:
“Takemichi Hanagaki’s life is at an all-time low. Just when he thought it couldn’t get worse, he finds out that Hinata Tachibana, his ex-girlfriend, was murdered by the Tokyo Manji Gang: a group of vicious criminals that has been disturbing society’s peace for quite some time.
Wondering where it all went wrong, Takemichi suddenly finds himself traveling through time, ending up 12 years in the past—when he was still in a relationship with Hinata. Realizing he has a chance to save her, Takemichi resolves to infiltrate the Tokyo Manji Gang and climb the ranks in order to rewrite the future and save Hinata from her tragic fate.” –MyAnimeList
Chapter 223 was pretty much about Draken’s backstory and flashbacks. He remembered some better, more peaceful, and happier times. We follow them on their ride to the seaside, where they are supposed to watch the sunrise. The last shot was Draken holding Emma’s hand while whispering: “I am on my way, Emma.”
Unfortunately, chapter 224 starts with the ambulance team confirming Draken’s dead, after unsuccessful reanimation. This was a reason guys from Brahman(where Takemichi is) decided that they were going to attack Rokuhara Tandai(they killed Draken). Guys from Rokuhara did not waste their time but came directly to confront Brahman. Before the fight started, in the distance, we could see motorcycles approaching. Wild Mikey(now leader of Kantou Manji Gang) appears.
Everything escalated in chapter 225, and so the fight started. It is an all-out war between three deities. Takemichi can’t believe it, Coco(Mikey’s vice-captain) is in disbelief because Mikey seems like he does not care even a bit about Draken’s death, and everybody else is fighting to death pretty much. At this point, some main characters dying is a viable and expected option! We are in for a ride, dear philosophers!
I will give my thoughts on those three chapters as one whole. We have seen a couple of important things for future events. Draken dying is a huge thing for the plotline and generally future events. Slowly but surely, things are getting out of hand for Takemichi, and he will have to act up quickly if he wants to have any impact on how things end.
I have a problem with the influx of a large number of newish gang members to the story. Thus I forget about them and focus on the main characters instead. Besides that, everything else is fun, fast-paced, and action-packed combat, which I enjoy very much. We are yet to see how everything wraps up, but the story is slowly but surely coming to an end, and oh boy, it’s going to be a ton of fun!
The last three chapters were not only fun and action-packed but truly emotional as well. I lost one of my favorite, if not the most favorite character, so emotions run high for me. Thus, I give it 5 out of 5 conical hats.
