Is the Tokyo Revengers manga finished?

Written and illustrated by Ken Wakui, Tokyo Revengers began serialization in Kōdansha’s Shūkan Shōnen Magazine on March 1, 2017. The first volume was published on May 17, 2017. As of April 15, 2022, twenty-seven volumes have been published. In North America, Kōdansha USA began the digital release of the manga in 2018. Seven Seas Entertainment is planning to release the manga in an omnibus print edition.

On October 28, 2021, a spin-off parody manga written and illustrated by Shinpei Funatsu titled Tōdai Revengers was announced. It began serialization in Kōdansha’s Magazine Pocket on November 3, 2021.7 The story is inspired by the author’s own life, who belonged to a real gang called Black Emperor, which also used the manji 卍 (まんじ) as a logo. The author himself says that his work goes back in time since he does not know how gangs work today, and prefers to talk about those from the early 2000s.

In May 2021, it was announced that the series had entered its final arc. At this moment, it is not know when exactly the manga is going to end, but seeing how the arc has been evolving for a year, we assume that it is closer to its end than not. At this moment, the Tokyo Revengers manga is still ongoing, but that is about to change relatively soon, seeing how it is in its final arc.

As for the collected volumes, this is the current status on each of the volumes collected so far:
