Tokyo Revengers Season 2 anime TV series production has been confirmed. When will Tokyo Revengers 2 be released? And now that voice actor Tatsuhisa Suzuki has retired, who will play Draken?
Tokyo Revengers Season 2 release date, according to a self-proclaimed “well-known anime blogger” on Chinese Weibo, will be July 3, 2022 (after midnight on July 2, 2022), during the anime season of the summer 2022.
This information has obviously not been verified by official sources and should be treated as a rumour. Many of the biggest anime news leaks come from China, so the story can’t be completely dismissed out of hand, but it does become more and more implausible over time.
The release date of Tokyo Revengers 2 had not been revealed by the end of April 2022. Therefore, it is generally safe to dismiss this report as false, as the release date of every major anime project is usually disclosed within 6 months of its premiere.
Instead, according to Anime Geek, a 2023 release date is more feasible (see release date predictions section below for details).

Because the action takes place on Christmas, this title is most likely a reference to the manga series’ Black Dragon tale arc. Since the Christmas Showdown arc is roughly the same length as the Valhalla arc, Tokyo Revengers Season 2 will most likely be a single courtship anime season.
You might be wondering what a “yard” is. For those unfamiliar with the term, a “yard” is a three-month period of television programming based on physical seasons of 10 to 13 episodes.
On December 18, 2021, Tokyo Revengers: Christmas Showdown was announced at the Tokyo Revengers Tokyo Manjikai Tachikawa Touring Special Event. With the exception of voice actor Draken, who will be replaced, all of the main Japanese voice actors were there.
Even before the official confirmation of the second season, anime news leakers stated that it was already in the early stages of development. “Tokyo Revengers TV Anime Season 2 in development,” Sugoi LITE tweeted on December 3, 2021. “##toman anime” is a hashtag. “Tokyo Revengers Season 2 Confirmed” TO SPY tweeted on December 12, 2021.
Sugoi LITE and SPY have a habit of generating accurate anime news leaks. This isn’t the first time anime news leaks have predicted a second season.
Another leaker said that Tokyo Revengers 2 was already in early production in May 2021. At the time, it was easy to believe such leaks because the manga broke records and the anime did well. (For more information, see the release date predictions section below.)

Is 2023 the most likely release date for Tokyo Revengers Season 2?
As of the last update, neither Kodansha nor Studio LIDEN FILMS, nor any other entity involved in the production of the anime, had officially confirmed the release date or even the schedule for Tokyo Revengers Season 2. The production of a sequel to Tokyo Revengers: Christmas Showdown, on the other hand, has been announced.

In the meantime, it’s impossible to predict when Tokyo Revengers Season 2 will release.
The cliffhanger’s ending is almost as surprising as the fact that no official statement was made when episode 24 aired. However, there were plenty of reasons to expect a sequel right from the start.
“A second season of Tokyo Revengers is already underway,” ChifuyuMatsun0 said on May 18, 2021, the anime news leaker. With so little (output), LIDENFILMS struck gold.

While no leaked photography or source verification was provided, it was a reasonable claim given how recent the manga’s sales figures are. “There will be no official data so soon”, ChifuyuMatsun0 added, “but you can take it for granted.”
The announcement of an anime sequel came as no surprise, given the success of the Tokyo Revengers manga thanks to the anime. Around 8.5 million copies of the manga were in circulation as of March 2021. The series sold 14.5 million copies a month later in April 2021.
As of May 2021, Tokyo Revengers manga topped Oricon’s sales chart, selling a total of 2,702,408 copies. To put those numbers into context, Jujutsu Kaisen sold 1,655,415 copies, Demon Slayer sold 600,366 copies, My Hero Academia sold 327,318 copies, and Attack On Titan sold 319,081 copies during the same time period.
According to the official Twitter account, the manga has sold 15 million copies as of May 7, 2021 and 17 million copies a week later. The official account celebrates 20 million copies in circulation on June 3, 2021.

the Toman official account celebrated 25 million copies a month later. The milestone of 32 million copies was reached on July 21, 2021.
Here is the Tweet from 東京卍リベンジャーズ【公式】
In mid-August 2021, Tokyo Revengers manga officially overtook Attack on Titan as the top-selling Kodansha manga in a year, selling 16,532,610 copies, breaking the previous record of 15,933,801 set in 2013!
The manga had 40 million copies in circulation as of September 26, 2021. Since September 2020, when there were approximately 5 million copies in circulation, the series has increased its circulation eightfold in a single year. The manga had sold over 50 million copies as of January 20, 2022.
There were additional reasons to assume that the creators renewed Tokyo Revengers so quickly on top of this extraordinary achievement.
