In March 2017, Wakui began the publication of Tokyo Revengers manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine, which concluded on November 16.
However, the magazine continues to publish the Tokyo Revengers Extra spinoff manga that narrates the story of the founders of the Tokyo Manji Gang.
Kodansha USA Publishing is releasing the manga in English and describes the story as:
Watching the news, Takemichi Hanagaki learns that his girlfriend from way back in middle school, Hinata Tachibana, has died.
The only girlfriend he ever had was just killed by a villainous group known as the Tokyo Manji Gang.
He lives in a crappy apartment with thin walls, and his six-years-younger boss treats him like an idiot. Plus, he’s a complete and total virgin … At the height of his rock-bottom life, he suddenly time-leaps twelve years back to his middle school days!!
To save Hinata, and change the life he spent running away, hopeless part-timer Takemichi must aim for the top of Kanto’s most sinister delinquent gang!!
