I don’t know why I’m thinking of that one Tiny Toons episode where Plucky Duck calls himself the Toxic Revenger. That and I haven’t heard Revenger used in a title or sentence since then.
And now, it’s used for time travel.
This is Tokyo Revengers.

Plot Summary: Watching the news, Takemichi Hanagaki learns that his girlfriend from way back in middle school, Hinata Tachibana, has died. The only girlfriend he ever had was just killed by a villainous group known as the Tokyo Manji Gang. He lives in a crappy apartment with thin walls, and his six-years-younger boss treats him like an idiot. At the height of his rock-bottom life, he suddenly time-leaps twelve years back to his middle school days. To save Hinata, and change the life he spent running away, hopeless part-timer Takemichi must aim for the top of Kanto’s most sinister delinquent gang.
First Thoughts: We got another time travel story here and it’s been a minute since we heard about a time-travel anime since….. well, ERASED. It starts out like an usual time-travel story; someone he knew died, we focus on his crappy life and suddenly he dies…. sorta or flash back 12 years ago when he was a part of the gang….. the gang that eventually killed her and her brother. He managed to somehow succeed and fail…. the brother is alive but she’s not. The story is interesting enough to keep me clued in and hoping they succeed but I can tell that something in the end is going to fuck that up. Yes, the main girl’s death is the motivation of the MC to stop this so I think if you’re not into that, it’s not your ride. I still want to see how it’ll end tho.

I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and I guess Tokyo Avenger is too damn obvious and overused at this point.
