The production of a sequel to the TV anime Tokyo Revengers has been confirmed. Along with this announcement, the key visual and PV (promotional video) have also been released, marking the start of the 5th-anniversary project for the anime's broadcast. A new project titled 'Fairytale(Jananese: douwa) Revengers' has also been revealed, which will mini-animeize fairytales in the style of Tokyo Revengers. The first installment will be 'Momotaro,' with more stories to be announced in the future.

This announcement was made during the 'Tokyo Revengers' 4th Anniversary & Formation Commemoration Event 'Matsudo Touring' held on the 16th. The key visual depicts a battered Takemichi and Mikey, while the PV condenses memorable scenes from the previous seasons, hinting at the beginning of a new revenge story through the final lines spoken by Takemichi and Mikey.

The event also unveiled the 5th-anniversary project set for 2025, marking five years since the anime first aired. The first part of this project is a character image song live event titled 'Friendship (japanese: dachi) Live' to be held at Pacifico Yokohama on February 2, 2025.

Additionally, on October 23, 'Tokyo Revengers Duet EP 01,' featuring character duet songs, will be released. This EP will include a priority application ticket for the live event.
