Key points for Tokyo Revengers Tenjiku Arc Review:
- I found Takemichi’s actions to be frustratingly repetitive, impacting my overall experience with the plot. Despite some unpredictability and surprises, some moments made me wish certain aspects would progress more quickly.
- While supporting characters like Mikey, Draken, and Kisaki had their moments, I couldn’t help but feel that Takemichi, the main character, lacked significant development since Season 1, making his character seem stagnant.
- The animation quality from LidenFilms didn’t stand out, falling between not terrible and not particularly good. Additionally, Season 3 lacked a memorable opening or ending theme, unlike the iconic theme from Season 1.
Oh yeah, this will be a fun review. I remember being really frustrated at the series when Season 2 came out. Now, thankfully, Season 3 is nowhere as bad as that but the series still lacks the charm that made Season 1 special. How good is the Tokyo Revengers Tenjiku arc then? Well, that is what we are here to talk about, right? There have been quite a few rug-pulls this season and another one is coming soon but something still feels off.
So welcome back to yet another review. I waited as long as I could for this one but I think that the time is right. We are talking about the Tokyo Revengers Tenjiku arc today. So let’s just get started!
So while the plot is a significant improvement over Season 1 and Season, by this point, Takemichi’s actions have started to feel a little repetitive. I know that you are supposed to feel frustrated at certain moments but eh… man, certain moments really made me go “This again? Get it over with quickly, please”. That said, I do appreciate the grander scale of the plot. There are a lot more things, events, and characters involved in the plot at this point and it does get pretty unpredictable at times.
This is especially true for the 2nd half of the season. There are a lot of surprises and perhaps the biggest unexpected surprise is yet to come. I think it will be in next week’s episode. So I do appreciate this added bit of complexity but the downtime in the plot is pretty horrible and even insufferable at times. If you could not tell already, I am very divided on this plot.
I don’t hate Takemichi as an MC but I’d be lying if I said that his actions aren’t frustrating at times. Feels like his character hasn’t changed at all since Season 1. In Season 1, it was pretty fresh so it worked like a charm but in Season 2 and Season 3 it has started to feel a little stale. Mikey, Draken, Kisaki, and even Izana or some other minor characters are out here having some good character moments. While the MC of the show himself gets little to no character development in the season.
Animations and Soundtracks
Season 1 still has one of the memorable and iconic opening themes. Does anyone even remember the Season 2 opening theme compared to that? No. Season 3 is the same. Neither the opening nor ending theme are unique or memorable. It is LidenFilms, so you know what kind of animation quality to expect. It is not too terrible but it isn’t particularly good either.
Here are my final scores for Tokyo Revengers Season 3/Tenjiku Arc
- Plot – 7/10
- Characters – 6/10 (deducting a point because of how stale Takemichi feels)
- Animations – 7/10
- Soundtracks – 6/10
- Enjoyment – 7/10
- Overall – 6.5/10
Those were muy thoughts and opinions on Tokyo Revengers. I may have been a little too brutal but I am just a little frustrated by how repetitive the series has become. Season 4 will really have to cook if it wants to reclaim the charm of Season 1. Let me know what you guys think, I will take my leave here. See ya!!
