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. Plus, he’s a complete and total virgin … 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!!
he stage play is written/directed by Naohiro Ise, who has worked on many stage play adaptations of popular Japanese games, manga, and anime, such as WORKING!! (2012), BROTHERS CONFLICT (2014-2016), Noragami (2016-2017), Your Lie in April (2107), Mr. Osomatsu (2018-2019), and BEASTERS (2020). He says, “While feeling a great deal of pressure, we will never give up, just like Takemichi’s way of life. We will all run as fast as we can to the goal of the performance. We will deliver the ‘Tokyo Revengers’ that only the stage play can provide.”
