Tokyo Revengers Chapter 253 Spoilers & Release Date Explained

Things aren't going as Takemichi predicted.

May 16, 2022

Chapter 253 of Tokyo Revengers will feature several big events, and recent spoilers confirm that it will be one of the most heartbreaking chapters of the series.

In the previous chapter of Tokyo Revengers, we saw Pah confronting his childhood friend, Mikey. Pah states that he never understood what Mikey wanted, but he always followed him blindly without worrying about the consequences. However, Pah reached its breaking point, and he finally gets ready to try and put a stop to Mikey’s madness. Of course, Mikey’s power is too overwhelming, and he defeats Pah in an instant and renders him unconscious.


We hadn’t seen Mikey in action for a while, so the community was delighted to see him take part in the fight. In fact, everyone was missing Mikey’s signature kick. However, the circumstances under which Mikey is fighting are heartbreaking. In each chapter, we see Mikey almost killing people who were once his friends, and well, the next chapter isn’t going to be any different.

Tokyo Revengers Chapter 253 Spoilers Teases Takemichi’s Another Vision

As per the spoilers, the next chapter will first focus on Hanma’s fight with Chifuyu, Mitsuya, Hakkai, and Akkun. The four of them are exhausted from their previous fight, so it doesn’t take Hanma very long to defeat his opponents.

Looking at Pah on the ground, Pehyan, Smiley, and Angry make their move against Mikey. Smiley is the first one to get a beating from Mikey, then Angry and Pehyan go through a similar experience against Mikey.

Takemichi is devastated seeing Mikey beating the life out of his old friends. At this point, Takemichi shifts his focus from the ongoing fight against Kakucho toward Mikey. Kakucho uses this opportunity to land a mighty blow on Takemichi, who rolls over the ground and gets close to the train tracks.

Takemichi touches the tracks with his hand, and this is when he gets another vision. In this vision, Takemichi sees all his friends lying dead on the tracks after being hit by a train. Apparently, Sanzu drives a train to butcher the second generation of the Tokyo Manji gang once and for all.

The new vision obviously terrifies Takemichi, and he wonders if Sanzu will actually go to this extent to win the fight. Well, we’ll hopefully get our answers soon.
