The second season is set to majorly focus on the battle between the Tokyo Manji Gang and their new enemy, the 10th Generation Black Dragon. During this conflict, the story will center around the Shiba siblings - Taiju Shiba and Yuzuha Shiba.

Taiju Shiba is the leader of the Black Dragon while Yuzuha Shiba is his sister. However, it seems like they are on bad terms as Yuzuha is set to join Tokyo Manji Gang. She hopes to take revenge on her abusive brother by joining their immediate rivals.

In the meantime, Takemichi will try to resolve the conflict in hopes of creating a good timeline. Given how all his attempts to rescue his friends and Hinata have failed so far, he would not want to fail once again.
