Tokyo Revengers Episode 19 _VERIFIED_
Unfortunately, the actual presentation of that violence leaves a lot to be desired. Revengers has never touted very impressive visuals, but it's gotten by well enough with a few solid fight sequences and strong emotional narratives to back up its most important confrontations. Sadly, that's not really an option here; so much of this episode is spent panning over still images, with impact effects or shaky cam applied to trick us into thinking they're moving. It's not enough to ruin this episode on its own, but it sure sucks a lot of the energy out of the fights we see. A huge brawl with 400+ fighters would be a tall ask from even the healthiest of TV anime productions, and that's definitely not this show.
Tokyo Revengers Episode 19
Mikey at least looks cool as ever here, getting the best-looking fight of the episode as he takes on two of Kazutora's underlings while barely breaking a sweat. Then once the fight turns dirty and they pin him down, he gets to show off his titanium skull, because that's the only explanation for how he's still conscious after Kazutora goes full Barry Bonds on his cranium. Then again this kid is able to kick two people across the face with one foot from a stock-still standing position, so it's very possible he's actually a robot designed to be the ultimate delinquent at this point. I'm looking forward to seeing just what this tiny ball of physical assault has in store next week, I'll tell you that much.
All in all, this makes for a light (well, as light as hundreds of teens beating the piss out of each other can be) and quick episode, but also the exact kind of release Revengers needed after so much slow-burning. So while the animation certainly leaves something to be desired, it's still ultimately a fun watch, and a much welcomed shot in the arm for this whole arc.
The first season of Tokyo Revengers has entered its final phase, and fans are now eagerly waiting to watch the next anime episode. Well, here's what we know about Episode 19's release schedule.
The series is following its weekly release schedule without any interruptions. Fans can watch the latest episodes on Crunchyroll, and fortunately, the streaming platform has both Japanese and English versions.

But of course, the release timing may vary depending on your time zone, and because of that, the release date for some fans would be August 15th.
