Why is Tokyo Revengers 2021 getting so popular?

Tokyo Revengers is getting popular because of the uniqueness in its story and also the plot development that it does. The plot is well supporte by good characters and enough fight sequences. This anime is a delight to watch.

Let’s look at some of the reasons for the increasing popularity of Tokyo Revengers:

Tokyo Revengers is not like any other Time Travel Anime Series:

Though the story of Tokyo Revengers is about time travel, it is not an anime of the isekai genre. The Isekai genre is the type of anime genre that involves time travel or going to the past. Dr. Stone is an example of the isekai genre. Senku Ishigami in Dr. Stone traveled 3700 years. Dr. Stone is more in line with the isekai genre.

Takemichi only traveled 12 years. The plot is more about exploring the idea of changing someone’s past so that their future can be made better and hence it is not that much in line with isekai genre anime.

There’s a Lesson behind Every Fight:

Tokyo Revengers is not like any other anime that explore content through experiments. There is real progress to the plot and real character growth.
The other thing about Tokyo Revengers is that it doesn’t have unnecessary fights and conflicts, instead, every conflict is the place to make sense and there is a meaning to every fight.

The best example is when Takemichi takes a stand against school bullies because of which he gets beaten badly. His actions motivate the user to take the right stand irrespective of the consequence. The fights are made real-life base and resemble the conflicts of real life.

It Blends Action and Story Well:

This anime has fight sequences but the fight sequences are essential and well-woven as per the story. It is not like shonen anime in which the story generally revolves around conflicts and fights. This anime has a story supported by fights and conflicts.

This anime is the best example of enough action. It doesn’t have too much action and also doesn’t have very little action.

It’s full of Interesting Characters:

Tokyo Revengers is full of interesting characters that fit the story well. All the characters have their valuable contribution to the story.

From the fierce and childish commander Manjiro Sano to his subordinates, every character in this series is well woven with the plot and makes their respective contributions to the plot and thus collectively makes the anime amazing.

Now there are many questions that arise with the introduction that I have given. How would he live the life again from which he was running? Does he have to change the future?

The story makes sure that all your confusion is clarified as the series progresses.

So if you have not watched Tokyo Revengers till now make sure you check it out. Believe me, it is amazing and you will thank me while watching this anime.
