# 7 resuscitating
Tokyo Revengers Chapter seven begins with the arrival of Osanai and the rest of Möbius. Despite Takemichi's attempts to end the conflict, Pachin confronts Osanai. Though Pachin can't defeat Osanai, Mikey does and Draken delivers the final blow. However, things do not end there, Pachin cannot quench his thirst for revenge and stabs Osanai, in the end he decides to surrender to the authorities. They all flee from the construction site and in the middle of the escape, Takemichi faints and wakes up after a few days in the hospital. In her absence, things have escalated too much, the internal struggle in Toman divided her into two sides. Without being able to understand everything, Takemichi receives a visit from Draken and Mikey, both start a fight and Takemichi finally loses patience.
A man is standing
Battles are usually individual, honor and defeat are things to deal with. This is not entirely true of gangs, however, because a person's honor or a person's defeat is for everyone. That's the rule Mikey Toman leads by, and they believe it because he trusts himself and his friends. Mikey is the type of leader who recognizes the worth and strength of his people and has the charisma to follow. Invincible Mikey earned his fame and group support for the same mentality. The belief and support he gives them is not easy, it is the basis of everything that Toman is.
If Mikey claims that Pachin didn't lose, that no one at Toman will while he's still standing, this is the greatest leadership we can have. It shows the loyalty with which you follow your principles and the confidence with which you support your group. Although Toman is not a single man, ultimately, if only one supports him. Be careful here, this implies that Mikey carries the absolute weight of the band. It's so simple that Toman is backed by the idea that as long as there is only one booth, everyone is a winner.
It is these actions and ideologies that make us understand the tremendous value Mikey places on bonds such as friendship. Because this whole conflict with Möbius only started out of friendship. It's no wonder things went wrong when Pachin decided to take justice into his own hands and then throw himself up. That wasn't the kind of conclusion Mikey wanted, it was never his wish that a friend of his had to go through it.
As in the past, Toman got into a conflict and split into two camps, Mikeys and Drakens. As always, our dizzying Takemichi has been knocked out and lost in the overall development of this conflict. And although we, like Takemichi, are in the dark due to a lack of information, I think the reason for the conflict is pretty obvious. It is almost certain that it is because of Pachin's imprisonment. The position they take in this situation is certainly the opposite between Mikey and Draken. Draken, who knows both of them, has to believe that it was the right thing to do and that he has to pay for the damage he did while Mikey has to think that he shouldn't pay for anything because they did something much worse.
As with any issue of justice and the emotional realm, it is normal for opinions to split and clash. What should interest us is that despite these clashes, there is a point of reconciliation. Both Mikey and Draken are good friends, and it has already become clear that Draken is a necessary addition to Mikey. Therefore, reconciliation between the two is crucial to stop this division. In the end, it's just about both of them realizing that their hearts want the same thing, that Pachin is happy with his choice, and that the rest can move forward and offer the same support they always had.
It's weird as a discussion, but shouldn't go any further. Both must lay aside their pride and bury the ax. But as we know, you cannot do this alone, it will be Takemichi's duty to guide you to the best possible solution. Takemichi may not be strong, but he is sincere and that opens more hearts than any fruitless fight.
Tokyo Revengers Chapter seven was an episode full of emotion, laughter, and moments great memes deserve. Overall, it was a very entertaining chapter, the action and excitement of fighting Osanai was perfectly complemented by the fun and laughter in the scenes of Takemichi suffering from his own misfortunes. The script work continues to be a complete success, the animation stays on the acceptable side so it was very entertaining.
Before I close on this review, I just want to say that I am glad to be able to relive those great moments that are now animated on this fantastic series. Of course, I'm even more concerned about what's to come without getting to the spoilers. I will just say that the fight ahead will be the most epic and exciting.
Anyway, these were my impressions of this chapter. Tell me, what did you think of this episode? Did you like this first confrontation with Möbius? How will Takemichi resolve the conflict between Draken and Mikey?
