Tokyo Revengers Characters Speak Local Dialects on New Posters Across Tokyo Station

17.September.2021 | ANIME&GAME / SPOT

Starting September 13, characters from the popular anime series Tokyo Revengers are taking over Tokyo Station in a unique new poster campaign! In addition to one main poster featuring all main characters, 47 local posters–one for each Japanese prefecture–are being displayed throughout the massive train station, with characters speaking in local dialects to promote different areas of Japan. For those learning Japanese, this is a neat way to learn more about the unique vocabulary used throughout the country. 



 

A fun Twitter campaign is also underway, asking fans to tweet #オレの地元が最強 (#MyHometownIsTheStrongest). The special prize will be a B0 Japan Revengers poster, given to only one winner, with the remaining 47 winners able to snag a B2-size poster. 

 

A special advertisement for Japan Revengers will appear in the morning edition of the September 17th edition of the Asahi Shimbun newspaper. Additionally, to celebrate the release of the 24th volume of the Tokyo Revengers manga series, those who purchase the new volume will receive one randomly-selected 47-prefecture illustration card during the in-store campaign.

 

Be sure to check out which prefecture your favorite character is repping!

    4. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (Anime)

    10. BTS JAPAN OFFICIAL FANMEETING VOL.5 [MAGIC SHOP] (Special)


    The first and second seasons of Tozaburo Furuhata are no longer available. Season 3 is out now. 

     

     

    Pulling in the most views between January and July was Jujutsu Kaisen, the popular anime series following high-schooler Yuji Itadori and his struggle with curses and sorcery. The show took the top spot by a huge margin, sitting at number one for four consecutive months between January and April. What makes it so popular? It could be its blend of horror and comedy, making it an attractive watch for all kinds of anime fans. 

    In second place, Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet. Who is Shuichi Akai, and what was his involvement in the disaster at the World Sports Games? This is the 24th Detective Conan film, and not one to miss, grossing over $20 million and holding the title of the third highest IMAX opening in Japanese history. 

     

    Rounding out the top three, anime series Tokyo Revengers tells the story of a delinquent with the ability to travel back in time. When his lover is murdered, Takemichi Hanagaki goes back to his junior high school days, intent on saving her life. Airing on dTV beginning in April, viewership has steadily increased, reaching #3 in May and hitting the top spot in June. 


     

    Unsurprisingly, two internationally beloved series also made the top ten. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba and Attack on Titan The Final Season sit in fourth and fifth place, making the top five an anime-only club. Kimetsu Academy, a junior and senior high-school spinoff of Demon Slayer sits at number nine, even though episodes are less than two minutes long on average. Never underestimate the power of animation!

    The classic 1994 drama series Furuhata Ninzaburo began to climb the rankings after the death of Masakazu Tamura in April this year from heart failure. Though seasons one and two are no longer streaming on the service, season three was just added to the catalogue on August 1!

     

    Hollywood epic Alita: Battle Angel, an adaptation of the sci-fi manga series, was the only western film to crack the top ten. BTS JAPAN OFFICIAL FANMEETING VOL.5 [MAGIC SHOP], which included footage of a special event with fans at the popular KPOP group’s last show at Kyocera Dome Osaka in 2019, finishes out the list. 

     

    While these ten might have drawn the most views, there are plenty of other films, concerts, dramas and anime series available on dTV, so be sure to check them out!
