Tokyo Revengers – Tenjiku Arc : Is Hanagaki Takemichi a traitor?
Mucho tells Takemichi about how Team 5 of the Tokyo Manji gang was granted a special status, allowing them to wage infighting. He reminds Takemichi of the time he almost died at Kiyomasa’s hands while placing a bet. He reveals that it was Mucho who informed Draken and Mikey about the betting round.
In short, whenever there is a traitor in the Tokyo Manji gang, Yasuhiro Mucho and Team 5 will take action. This contradicts Mucho being a traitor as was thought in the previous episode. This makes Takemichi wonder if he will be considered a traitor. Inupi then chats with Manyo. He deduces that Inupi and Kokonoi are members of the 8th generation Black Dragon, led by Kurokawa Izana.
Inupi is a powerful assistant to Izana. After the attack on the Tokyo Manji gang by none other than Izana, it would make perfect sense that Inupi would have some role in it. Since Inupi was brought into Team 1 by Takemichi, that could mean they are the traitors who betrayed Toman.
Tokyo Revengers – Tenjiku Arc : Yasuhiro Mucho, one of the ghosts of the S-62 generation
Both Kokonoi and Inupi assured Mucho that the three had not betrayed Toman. Kokonoi tells how the ghosts of S-62 began to act. Inupi further revealed that Yasuhiro Mucho had been friends with Kurokawa Izana and others who were involved in the attack on Tenjiku. Mucho himself later revealed that he was one of the founding members of Tenjiku, and now that Izana has come to power, the Tokyo Manji gang is his enemy.
Kokonoi Hajime and money-making genius Yasuhiro Manyo reveal their intention to recruit Kokonoi Hajime to Tenjiku. Since Kokonoi only follows Inupi, there will be a problem because Inupi is in Toman. Manyo gives Kokonoi a choice: will he die with these two or will he join Tenjiku.
To create the most powerful crime syndicate ever, Izana needs Kokonoi’s money, Kisaki’s brains, and Mikey’s charisma. If Kokonoi joins Tenjiku, Manyo will release Inupi and Takemichi. Takemichi rejects this and stands up to defend Kokonoi. However, he was beaten by Yasuhiro Mucho and lost consciousness.
Tokyo Revengers – Tenjiku Arc: Inupi’s desire to rebuild the black dragon
When Takemichi regains consciousness, he finds himself with Inupi, all beaten. Inupi then reveals that Kokonoi agreed to join Tenjiku in exchange for letting them go free. Inupi takes Takemichi to his hideout for treatment. Inupi reveals that he once respected Sano Shinichiro as the leader of the first generation Black Dragons.
Inupi wishes to recreate the First Generation of Black Dragons that Shinichiro built and asks Takemichi to continue the gang’s legacy by becoming the leader of the 11th Generation of Black Dragons.
Inupi joins the 8th Generation of Black Dragons, led by Kurokawa Izana. However, from the 8th generation, the Black Dragon became depraved, indulged in extortion, theft and drugs. Inupi was then taken to a detention center and when he returned, the Black Dragon was crushed. To rebuild the Black Dragon, Inupi turned to Taiju Shiba, and thus the 10th Generation of Black Dragons was formed.
Hearing this, Takemichi shares about his relationship with Inupi, as he himself failed to protect those important to him. After saying this, Takemichi agreed to become the leader of the 11th Generation Black Dragons while remaining the captain of Toman’s First Division. The episode ends with Takemichi vowing to bring back Kokonoi and destroy Kisaki Tetta and Kurokawa Izana
