Time travel stories in anime aren't necessarily a new concept. Many series deals with time travel, featuring characters and stories that wander through the past, present, and future. Although, something about anime with time leaping just hits different. Needless to say, its premise is probably more painful than usual—which is perfect if that's your type of thing.

A popular time leaping character is Takemichi Hanagaki, the main character of Tokyo Revengers. At present, he's a 26-year-old nobody who only works part-time. While he was watching TV, his ex-girlfriend from middle school, Hinata Tachibana, was on the news because she was murdered by a gang. This surprises Takemichi, considering she was his only girlfriend ever since.

While waiting at the station for the train to arrive, he's suddenly pushed onto the tracks and finds himself back in 2005—where Hinata is still alive and well. As Takemichi returns to his middle school life, he meets Naoto, Hinata's younger brother, and tells him about her death. After he tells him to protect her, they shake hands, and Takemichi is transported back to the present. With the assistance of Naoto, Takemichi aims to save Hinata from her impending death and change the course of everyone's lives.

Being black and blue all over, we shed tears again and again
By laying our unstable hearts on the shoulders of each other, we fight against the depraved bad ending
Don't know why comfortable pain affects me more heavily than joy
While tut-tutting on wet clothes, we look at our swollen faces and laugh
On this drenching night, we sworn our revenge
