In a recent leak by Yonkou Productions, a well-known Twitter user who is usually correct in his leaks, it was announced that an anime adaptation of the manga written and illustrated by Ken Wakui, Tokyo Revengers, is in production. This information has not been confirmed.
Wakui started publishing the manga in the magazine Weekly Shonen Magazine from the publisher Kodansha in March 2017. The publisher published the seventeenth compilation volume on May 15.
The play is inspiring a live-action film adaptation produced by Warner Bros. Japan under the direction of Tsutomu Hanabusa, and whose premiere is scheduled for October 9.
