The official website of the Tokyo Revengers website has released the release date for the second season of the series. As leaked a few hours earlier, Tokyo Revengers season 2 will be released in January 2023. A promotional video has been released to commemorate the release date announcement.

According to Tokyo Revengers official website, Masaya Fukunishi has been cast as the voice behind Draken. Keep in mind that Draken’s previous voice actor, Tatsuhisa Suzuki was relieved from voicing Draken after a cheating scandal came to light. The new cast, Masaya Fukunishi doesn’t have any major roles in the voice acting industry so far, so becoming Draken’s voice will be a huge challenge and opportunity for him at the same time. Masaya has voiced Sumida in Blue Lock anime series. You can listen to his voice as Sumida on YouTube at the 2:13 mark.
