Tokyo Revengers is another anime based on the delinquent culture, that was followed like a religion back in the days in Japan. The narrative of this anime is amazing according to me, and it is beautifully orchestrated and designed by Ken Wakui who also happened to be a gang member. The manga is published by Kodansha, and the first season, Tokyo Revengers S1 is currently streaming on Netflix.
The 24-episode season 1, that approximately runs for 23-24 minutes is a compelling proposition. Being a Shonen edition, this anime has some definite powerful characters who will amaze you pretty much as well. Therefore there are some talkable highlights which we need to discuss right now.
Yes, according to me Tokyo Revengers S1 is sure to be an emotional ride for its audience. So, these are my selections from the 1st season which I felt is worth your time and energy to talk about. Let us get going with-

13 Emotional Moments From Tokyo Revengers S1 That Really Makes The Anime Worth Talking; Ranked Best to Best
Watching Hinata Tachibana Alive
In 2017, we watched the sad news of Hinata Tachibana dying and that simply changed the whole mood of Takemichi. Although they broke up long back, thinking about your ex, whom you loved, and hearing such unfateful news in the morning can only bring you demoralized emotions.
But in 2005, when we, along with Takemichi watched Hinata all alive and healthy, it was certainly something sentimental. We all know what happens to her after 12 years, in fact, she dies at only 26. But right now she is all fine and smiling. It made me teary.
Akkun Commits Suicide
Not only for Takemichi but for the viewers too, it was not at all expected. The teary gaze and the hopeless words uttered, viciously projected how desperate Akkun was about his miserable condition. He was scared and aggressively seeking shelter. He leaves Takemichi with his final words that definitely make Takemichi pretty anxious and wretched.
Hina Kisses Takemichi
3rd August was sure an important day in Tokyo Manji’s history, right? Keeping aside the preplanned infight, it was an emotional moment for Takemichi and Hinata. Shattered and beaten to bones, Takemichi lay hopeless and disappointed in himself. Thanks to Hinata, she, with her warm presence and a soulful kiss, changes the mood. She sure loves our Cry Baby a lot.
Mikey And The TOMAN Arrives At The Scene
Troubled and cornered, injured Draken, Takemichi, and Mitsuya were genuinely hoping for sunlight to shine bright on them. With the approaching Bobber noise, definitely, Draken and Mitsuya released a sigh of relief. With Mikey coming on the scene we all felt kind of saved. However, with the overnumbered Moebius clan in hand, it was obviously still something worth worrying about.
But, things turned upbeat when TOMAN arrived at the scene; it felt kind of a symbol of unity with all the squad leader and their vice presidents, backing them up. The sequence adds a sentimental touch to the anime.
Our Cry Baby Fights Kiyomasa
Well, obviously the scum, Kiyomasa had some shady strategy under his sleeves, thus he did not flinch, while cornering injured Draken, along with Emma, Hina, and Takemichi. The situation was terrible, for Ken-chin was bleeding, and because of the summer festival, the ambulance took time to reach the location.
Yes, Takemichi lost hope but did not give up, he tried all he could to save Draken. In fact, when Takemichi’s friend joined in, it was kind of a relief. But, it was Takemichi, who definitely stole the episode. He was badly beaten up, further, Kiyomasa pierced his palm too, but this did not make him escape the situation.
Watching such determination, Draken, Emma, and Hinata cheered him up. He fought, giving his 100% on the situation, and was successful. Takemichi once again proved himself to be a suitable Shonen protagonist.
Mikey Joins The Gang In The Hospital
After fighting the hell out of Moebius, Mikey finally arrives at the hospital only to find out that Draken is still at the OT. He remains positive and genuinely tries to keep an optimistic atmosphere running around. However, when the doctor breaks the news, that Draken is all well, we find Mikey leaving the scene.
Later we find, Takemichi watches Mikey from a distance, who is relieved to find that Draken is all well. He wails and is happy.
Hinata & Akkun Dies
After struggling so much in the past, and finally making the needed changes, Takemichi is pleased to find Hinata and his friend Akkun both alive and living a healthy life. Just then things take a terrible turn, and Takemichi watches both Hinata and Akkun die a horrible death at the same location.
After going through so much in the past, Takemichi failed to change Hinata’s fate in the present. He felt wretched from within and was doing terrible. He stood in front of Hinata’s photo during the ceremony and suddenly turned motionless. His sentimental gesture stirred up the near and dear ones.
However, Naoto was the one who was shocked dreadfully. He broke down into tears and realized once again that he failed to save his sister.
Watching Shinichiro face such a miserable fate was despairing for Baji, right? He knew Sinichiro from before, but Kazutora took a shocking decision all of a sudden, simply tearing down many things. Just imagine seeing the whole thing from Mikey’s perspective. It sure is painful.
Takemichi was busy investigating all he could do, just to save Baji, Mikey, and TOMAN. He sure helped Mikey and TOMAN, but he failed unbearably while saving Baji. It was such a dramatic sequence that even made strong hearts pang.
Baji was fighting his own battle trying to protect Mikey, and TOMAN from the corrupted hands of Kisaki. He valued his friends and comrades. However, his death was the only thing that brought significant changes in the timeline. He was definitely a hero and a true TOMAN leader.
The Initiation Of TOMAN
Of course, the first step to becoming big and creating a new era was something huge for all middle schoolers. Once again Baji gets all the credit. He incites the subject of building a gang that would go to the extent of backing up each other, even if that means standing on the front line, which he did.
Chifuyu Keeps His Promise
Just like Takemichi supported him on his mission, Chifuyu backed up our Cry Baby so that he could reach the top of TOMAN. Well, it was indisputably impossible to reach the top without someone with power. Chifuyu was given power by Baji and later by Mikey. Thank goodness Chifuyu took a good decision, otherwise, I would have stuck with Takemichi and his never-ending travels in this debut season for a long time.
After partnering with our Cry Baby hero, Chifuyu brought some significant changes in TOMAN. Some are revealed and some are disclosed in Season 2. But what fate held for Chifuyu was something really messy. He was true to Baji and Takemichi, and that led to his horrific death.

TOTT’s Take On Tokyo Revengers S1
Well, if you have something else planned for the weekend drop it down, and rewatch this amazing anime. I found it to be a super engaging program, from the very pilot episode itself. In addition, each of the characters has the capacity to glue you to the seat.
The characters are strong and their backstory gives them a purpose and reasons behind their life’s decisions. Our Cry Baby hero is another Shonen protagonist who needs attention. He might seem lame, but his way to deal with life is certainly not the typical delinquent manner. He cries and fights, bleeding and breaking his bones and sometimes fainting too.
But his spiritual power is what led to curing the issues in the past and changing the present.
