Summary of Tokyo Avengers

Takemichi Hanagaki’s second year of high school was the highlight of his life. He had respect, a group of friends he could count on, and even a girlfriend. But that was twelve years ago. Today he is a nobody: a rickety nothing that children make fun of and is constantly forced to apologize to his youngest boss. A sudden news of Manji’s brutal Tokyo gang murder of his brother’s only girlfriend only adds insult to injury. Half a second before a train ends his miserable life forever, Takemichi flashes back to the same day twelve years ago, when he was still dating Hinata Tachibana.

After being forced to revive on the same day he started going down, Takemichi meets Hinata’s little brother. Without thinking, he acknowledges his apparent death before going back to the past. Takemichi urges him to protect his sister before returning to the future without explanation. Miraculously, he is not dead. Stranger still, the future has changed. It seems that Takemichi can change the flow of time. When given the chance to prevent the tragic death of his ex-girlfriend at the hands of the Tokyo Manji gang, Takemichi decides to fly through time to change the course of the future.
