Release window and cast change info
As mentioned above, several anime leaker accounts on Twitter have begun posting information relating to Tokyo Revengers season 2. Several different accounts have all shared the same expected release window for the series, as well as a change in cast for one of the series’ characters.
If these rumors are to be believed, then it seems that the second season of Ken Wakui’s hit manga series will be airing in January 2023. While these dates are of course subject to change, the fact that multiple separate leaker accounts have corroborated this release window makes it appear true, at least for the time being.
Along with the announcement of the release window came news of a cast change for the character of Ken "Draken" Ryuguji. It seems that Masaya Fukunishi will be replacing Tatsuhisa Suzuki as the voice of Draken, with Suzuki on hiatus from voice work due to poor health issues.
What to expect
The second season of Tokyo Revengers will be an adaptation of the Christmas Showdown arc (also called the Black Dragon arc), which focuses on the 10th generation Black Dragon gang. Many fan-favorite characters from the manga series, including the Shiba twins, Seishu Inui, and Hajime Kokonoi, will make their debuts during this arc.
The overall voice cast has not yet been revealed, but fans can look forward to the casting of Taiju and Yuzuha Shiba, two pivotal characters for the upcoming story arc. While the overall voice cast of season two has yet to be announced, two specific roles were revealed at the end of season one.
Seishu Inui will be voiced by Junya Enoki, and Hajime Kokonoi will be voiced by Natsuki Hanae. Both are best known for their lead roles in new-gen anime series, with Enoki voicing Yuji Itadori in Jujutsu Kaisen, and Hanae voicing Tanjiro Kamado in Kimetsu no Yaiba: Demon Slayer.
While this information is subject to change and has yet to be officially announced, the leaked information feels legitimate considering the various sources backing it up. Additionally, leaked info such as the recasting of Draken falls in line with what other series have recently done with Suzuki’s roles.
