    TOKYO REVENGERS

    ★★★★½

    I didn't know much about Tokyo Revengers. I saw the manga in the shops and got slightly distracted my the big manji (you know, this kanji that looks like a swastika, but basically is being used as a buddhist symbol. But well, I'm german, so I can't stop being slightly confused every time I see it) on the box sets and later I found out that it's the newest manga by Ken Wakui, who made Shinjuku Swan, which I haven't…

    Sono just can't escape his own clichés, so at the end there needs to be a lot of running and screaming. The ultimate solution for everything. There are some more elements that feel like a best of (again, we remember the forest of love), so we follow different people's stories up to a specific point in the main plot, we switch genres and so on. We even have that more feministic approach from stuff like Anti Porno (here we've got…
