Tokyo Manji Gang
Several gangs are present in the Tokyo Revengers series but none are as iconic as the Tokyo Manji Gang. They aim to start a new age for delinquents which differentiates them from other groups.
This time, we’ll get to know the Tokyo Manji Gang from head to toe, knowing their history and each member that they have. Enough of the chitchat, this is the Tokyo Manji Gang Wiki.

The Tokyo Manji Gang or Toman for short is a gang mainly comprised of Middle-schoolers whose territory is in Shibuya. In the original timeline, Toman was corrupted by several individuals where it became a ruthless criminal syndicate involved in murder, illegal drugs, and other heinous crimes (Chapter 1).
The Tokyo Manji Gang was under the leadership of Manjiro Sano, a very strong individual who created several gangs that conquered Tokyo across numerous timelines. Its members, especially the captains and vice-captains of each division, were also powerful and had abilities that made them worthy of their title.
Before the gang was corrupted and became evil, Toman greatly emphasizes the honor of its members and the whole gang will get involved if one of them will get attacked. Takemichi became friends with all of the Division Captains and Vice-Captains, except those in the 5th Division.
They formed a bond that lasted through the years. They also fought together and went to hell and back just to make sure that everyone was safe. Throughout the series, Toman will have various changes, for better or worse. It is one of Takemichi’s goals to make Toman run through the right path.
The Tokyo Manji Gang was once considered the strongest gang in Tokyo after defeating Tenjiku (Chapter 185). It disbanded following the Kanto Incident, where the event left 3 dead and Mikey decided that it was needed to ensure the best future possible (Chapter 189).
The gang’s uniform consisted of a black button-up jacket and pants that resembled a mechanic’s outfit. The uniform also had engravings that were colored gold. They paired it with white boots and belts. The captains, however, wore white sashes that made them stand out. Takemichi wore the sashes when he represented Toman during the Kanto Incident (Chapter 153).
There is also a tradition within the gang. The tradition involves having pre-battle and post-battle meetings that are attended by every member and led by Mikey and Draken. The Tokyo Manji Gang also upholds values similar to the 1st Generation of the Black Dragons, such as comradery and treating each other as family. Where even if Baji betrayed them, Mikey wanted to defeat Valhalla and get him back (Chapter 50).
When Manjiro Sano, Ken Ryuguji, Keisuke Baji, Takashi Mitsuya, Haruki Hayashida, and Kazutora Hanemiya were all in elementary school, they formed the Tokyo Manji Gang to fight against the Black Dragons who occupied Tokyo and which was the top gang during its glory days.
At first, Toman was a bunch of middle-schoolers who rode their bikes while doing harmless pranks to each other and the neighborhood of Shibuya. Although they were kids, they were capable of fending for themselves in the cruel world of delinquents. When Mikey was ridiculed because of his scooter and Baji was attacked by a gang called The Shonan Mermaids, the two of them destroyed the entire gang by themselves (Chapter 43).
Everything changed on the day before Mikey’s birthday, Kazutora accidentally killed an owner of a bike that he stole to give to Mikey as a gift who turned out to be Mikey’s older brother, Shinichiro (Chapter 44-45). This initiated a drastic change in how the members of Toman viewed themselves.
In the aftermath of Toman’s second encounter against Moebius, Toman quickly grew in strength as Kisaki’s group became the 3rd Division (Chapter 37). Shuji Hanma then joined Toman after Valhalla was defeated, forming the 6th Division. Takemichi was also appointed as the new 1st Division Captain after the battle concluded (Chapter 69).
During the battle against the 10th Generation of the Black Dragons, Takemichi and other Toman members fought against Taiju Shiba. Takemichi then became the 11th Generation Leader of the Black Dragons and the gang was absorbed into Toman after they were defeated (Chapter 111, Chapter 142). At the same time, Kisaki and Shuji were exposed and they were fired by Mikey. This resulted in Toman getting smaller again (Chapter 112).
The Tokyo Manji Gang’s final struggle would be against Tenjiku. After Tenjiku launched a surprise attack against the Division Captains and killed Emma Sano, Mikey and Draken were devastated (Chapter 149). This left Takemichi as the only one who was capable of leading Toman. Takemichi fought against 400 members of Tenjiku with only 50 of Toman’s (Chapter 154). They emerged victorious because of Takemichi’s resolve and determination, as well as Mikey and Draken’s surprising arrival (Chapter 170).
Takemichi then revealed to Mikey that he was a time-leaper (Chapter 188). This prompted Mikey to make a shocking decision during Toman’s meeting. He shouted to everyone that Toman will disband, but they should keep in mind that Toman is always in their hearts (Chapter 189). Mikey’s declaration signaled the end of Toman’s era as the strongest gang in all of Tokyo.

l Toman’s symbol is the swastika symbol which has relevance in Japanese Buddhism, Jainism, and Indian Hinduism as well in other religions in Europe and Asia.
l There are several versions of Toman each time Takemichi tries to change the past.
l Toman had a 5th Division that allowed infighting and had the authority to punish traitors without Mikey’s permission.
l Each Division consists of 25 members.
l The 3rd Division, which was briefly under Kisaki, became the largest Division with 50 members before Kisaki was fired.
Toman Vs. Moebius 1
Toman’s first encounter with Moebius was when Mikey, Takemichi, Draken, Pehyan, and Pah-Chin were cornered by Nobutaka Osanai and his group within Moebius (Chapter 15).
Toman emerged victorious when Mikey knocked out Osanai with one kick. Pah-Chin would stab Osanai while he was secured by Draken leading to his arrest when Pah-Chin turned himself in (Chapter 16). This fight would also create a rift in Toman.
Toman Vs. Moebius 2
Toman and Moebius would again fight but this time every member of both gangs would be present. Toman would emerge victorious in their second encounter.Kiyomasa also targeted Draken during this battle and successfully stabbed him.
However, Takemichi knew about this and saved Draken from his undesirable fate (Chapter 28).
This fight would result in Moebius splitting in half with Kisaki Tetta’s group who are born in 1990 forming Toman’s new 3rd Division and Osanai’s group who are born in 1998 joining Valhalla.
Toman Vs. Valhalla
Toman would win in their fight against Valhalla who is under the leadership of Shuji Hanma. The fight against Valhalla would result in Mikey’s former comrade, Baji’s death when he stabbed himself to show everyone that Kazutora didn’t kill him, but instead, he died by his own hands (Chapter 60). They would also have to fight another friend, Kazutora who is leading the anti-Toman group.
In an alternate timeline, Mikey beat Kazutora to death, but with Takemichi’s intervention, that didn’t happen and Baji left Toman’s fate on Takemichi’s hand before passing away (Chapter 61).
Toman Vs. The Black Dragons
Toman would go head to head with the Black Dragons and come out victorious. Takemichi, Mitsuya, Chifuyu, and Hakkai were on the verge of getting defeated by Taiju until Draken and Mikey showed up. Mikey beat Taiju and Draken took care of all the Black Dragons members outside the church (Chapter 106).
The Black Dragons would then appoint Takemichi as their new leader and join the 1st Division of Toman. Kokonoi, a captain of the Black Dragons, joined Tenjiku after Mucho threatened to torture Inui and Takemichi (Chapter 142).
Toman Vs. Tenjiku
Tenjiku, Toman’s rival gang ruled by Mikey’s half-brother, Izana, would fight Toman but the brawl would be interrupted when Kisaki Tetta killed Izana with a handgun (Chapter 176).
The fight was leaning towards Toman’s favor with Angry being able to quickly dispose of a handful of their top executives easily (Chapter 163). However, Kakuchou, Tenjiku’s strongest of the Four Heavenly Kings, defeated all of the Toman members (Chapter 164).
Mikey and Draken weren’t present until the very end after Hinata convinced them to help Takemichi. This was later known as the Kanto Incident and the final push for Toman to be called the strongest (Chapter 170).
You could say that the Tokyo Manji Gang are the good guys and the bad guys at the same time in Tokyo Revengers. When Takemichi goes to the past, they are a gang of middle-schoolers who love to ride bikes, have fun, and fight other delinquents but in the original timeline, they become ruthless individuals responsible for numerous deaths.
Toman’s rule which is to trust your friends and protect them at all costs is what made Takemichi want to protect the gang. Some of the members listed here have bad intentions but most of them just need a friend to rely on.
