A Return on the Horizon. After a long wait that seemed almost interminable, fans can finally breathe easy. "Tokyo Revengers" is back with its third season, premiering on October 3, 2023, at midnight JST, effectively rolling into October 4th. For international fans, Disney+ Japan will stream the anime worldwide from 3am JST on the following morning.
Quick Recap: The Journey Thus Far
Before we delve into the upcoming season of Tokyo Revengers, let's take a stroll down memory lane. The series kicked off with the intriguing narrative of Takemichi Hanagaki, a time-traveler striving to rectify the tragedies in his life and save his ex-girlfriend, Hinata Tachibana. As he delves into his past to mend the future, he finds himself entangled with the Tokyo Manji Gang, leading to intense rivalries, alliances, betrayals, and heart-wrenching moments.
Season 1 offered a generous 25-episode run, introducing us to the Tokyo Manji Gang and setting the stage for a darker, 12-episode Season 2. The drastic reduction in episodes for the second season might have contributed to the quicker return for the third season.
The Hiatus and Its Impact
While the gap between the first and second season was nearly two years, this interim has not been in vain. Fan theories have been buzzing in online communities, and with some fans well-versed in the manga series, the secrecy around the future plot points adds an element of suspense and excitement.

Speculations and Expectations
Given the history of the series, we could expect a relatively short season for Season 3. Regardless of its length, it's clear that the story is far from over. New plot developments and intricate character arcs are on the horizon, promising to make the third season just as emotionally intense and gripping as its predecessors.
The return of "Tokyo Revengers" is nothing short of a major anime event in 2023. Fans old and new are gearing up with Apparel, Tokyo Revenger Collectible Figures, and more to dive back into this complex world. While many questions remain unanswered, one thing is certain: October 3rd can't come soon enough.
