“Today the final chapter of ‘Tokyo Revengers’ comes out. It’s been five and a half years since serialization began, and I’ve drawn the last few chapters with tears in my eyes and the funniest episodes with laughter,” Wakui wrote. Thank you to all the readers, who have had such a great time with me and the Manji all these years.”
You can’t please everyone, and the latest chapters of the manga have driven a wedge between the fans. Without going into too many spoilers, the most recent narrative twists (and especially the last two chapters) have not sat well with a large part of the readers, who already refer to the end of ‘Tokyo Revengers‘ as the worst in recent shonen manga history.
