Tokyo Revengers anime series is the translation of the pages of the shōnen manga series of the same name to the screens. The manga series is by Ken Wakui published in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine. It started publishing way back in 2017 and to date, it has been compiled into 22 tankōbon volumes.

In 2018, Kodansha USA releases the manga series digitally on their website. Its latest tankōbon volume, 22, containing Chapters 189-197, will be having its release on April 16, 2021.

The manga series continues as there are still volumes not released and not in any tankōbon volume. However, it seems that the story arc is nearing its end. With no word from any of those involved that the manga isn't ending soon, it's safe to conclude that the manga is ongoing.

Tokyo Revengers recently won the 44th annual Kodansha Manga Award in the shōnen category in 2020 and as of March this year, it remains one of the most famous manga titles in existence with millions of copies still in circulation.

Tokyo Revengers releases new episodes every Saturday on Crunchyroll at 2:07 AM JST. These are the release times depending on your geographic location: 11:07 AM PT, 1:07 PM CT, 2:07 PM EST, and 7:07 PM BST.
