The live-action Tokyo Revengers movie is now available for fans to watch on Crunchyroll, with the company announcing that the first film in the series is on its streaming platform now.
Directed by Tsutomu Hanabusa, the Tokyo Revengers live-action film adaptation was originally supposed to open in October 2020 in Japan but was delayed until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The film ended up opening in July 2021, and instantly shot to the top of the Japanese box office, becoming one of the highest-grossing live-action films of 2021 in the country. A sequel film is currently set to release in two parts later this year, with the first coming on April 21, 2023, and the second coming on June 30, 2023.
