Key points for Tokyo Revengers Season 3 mid-season review:
- The Tokyo Revengers Tenjiku Arc surprises viewers with unexpected and impactful plot developments, particularly highlighted by the shocking events in episodes 3 and 5.
- The emotional depth of the series is underscored, especially through the heavy and poignant ending of episode 5, leaving a lasting impact on the audience.
- While the plot has significantly improved, the article notes persistent animation concerns with Lidenfilms, expressing a wish for a better studio adaptation. Despite this, the pacing of the season is acknowledged as a positive aspect compared to Season 2.
I know people didn’t really like the 2nd season of Toko Revengers. I too am pretty split on the 2nd season; I wasn’t really good but I do think that people hate it a tad bit too much. Either way, we are not here to talk about the 2nd Season today. Today we are here to talk about Tokyo Revengers Tenjiku Arc.
And man, the recent episode really hit home, didn’t it? I know that this arc has had ups and downs too but the ending of episodes 3 and 5 really cement what makes this series good. I like this arc so much because of moments like these.
So welcome to I think the first mid-season review of the season. Today we are talking about the Tokyo Revengers Tenjiku arc. Let’s get started.
What do I think of the Tokyo Revengers Tenjiku Arc so far?
MAJOR spoilers for Season 3 ahead, please catch up with the season before proceeding.
The episode 5 ending was heavy as hell. I don’t think anyone expected this to happen, I already knew what was gonna happen and I was still caught off guard by it. We had already gotten teases of something bad coming up but man, Emma of all people. I know a lot of people get mad that Takemichi figured it out and yet was unable to save her but I don’t think there was anything he could have done at that point. Emma’s last moments really did hurt, next few episodes will be worth watching just to see how Mikey reacts.
They also gave us a special ending theme/animation for this episode dedicated to Emma just to hammer the point home. Takemichi can’t even return to the future now since he was killed by Kisaki. Because of twists and surprises like these, the story of this arc has been really compelling. This is the surprise factor that made season 1 so good and season 2 was lacking.
The plot has significantly improved for sure but the animations are still very meh. Lidenfilms are known for mediocre adaptations and it doesn’t look like those allegations are going away anytime soon. I wish that this arc was adapted by a better studio but can’t really doo anything about it. At least they didn’t ruin the pacing of this season like they did with Season 2.
That is all for now!
Those were my thoughts and opinions on Tokyo Revengers Tenjiku Arc/Season 3 so far. Just because of how good the last few episodes have been, I am gonna go ahead and give this an 81/0 for now. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!!
