Tokyo Revengers Manga Finally Gets English Print Edition

Manga fans may look forward to finally adding Tokyo Revengers to their shelves, courtesy of a new omnibus edition from Seven Seas Entertainment.
Ken Wakui’s acclaimed Tokyo Revengers manga is finally getting an English physical publication.
The popular shonen manga series about a time-travelling delinquent was previously exclusively accessible in English via digital distribution from publisher Kodansha. Seven Seas Entertainment announced that they would begin selling print editions of Tokyo Revengers with a new omnibus that gathers the first two volumes of the series into a single gigantic paperback with updated typography. A limited-edition form of the collection will also be issued exclusively to Barnes and Noble shops, which will contain a variant cover and a double-sided fold-out poster. The collection will be released in the United States and Canada in May 2022 for $22.99 USD / $28.99 CAN.
Fans who would still want to keep up with the series digitally can do so on the INKR digital manga platform, which recently announced that it teamed with Kodansha to sell several of the publisher’s most popular titles, including Tokyo Revengers, on its site. In addition to Kodansha, INKR has cooperated with a number of other comic book and manga publishers from across the world, including Image Comics, Kuaikan and Tokyo Pop. INKR customers can purchase a monthly subscription that provides them unlimited access to the service’s collection of manga, manhwa and other comics, or they can purchase individual chapters and issues of each series for a modest charge.
Tokyo Revengers was originally published in 2017, and in four short years, it has managed to become one of the best-selling manga series of the last decade, with over 40 million copies in circulation worldwide. An anime adaptation of the series premiered its 24-episode first season earlier this year. The anime series was developed by Liden Films, the animation studio that also produced the anime adaptation of The Heroic Legend of Arslan and Cells At Work! Code Black. The anime may be streamed through Crunchyroll.
The series was also turned into a Japanese live-action film, which was also released in 2021 and has been the top-grossing live-action picture in Japan for the year. The movie surpassed bigger budget American blockbusters such as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Fast 9: The Fast Saga in its home region. The movie stars actor Takumi Kitamura as its principal protagonist, and the time-shifted Takemichi. Kitamura will also play another legendary anime delinquent in Netflix’s upcoming live-action version of the iconic shonen manga Yu Yu Hakusho, which is currently set to release in Dec. 2023.
