Why Does Takemichi Team Up With Kisaki in Tokyo Revengers? Answered
During the Tokyo Revengers Christmas Showdown arc, Takemichi and Chifuyu Matsuno try to develop a plan to prevent Hakkai Shiba from killing his older brother, Taiju (the leader of the Black Dragons.) This event is one of the reasons why the Toman gang goes down a dark path; therefore, Hanagaki must do whatever it takes to avert this scenario as the story’s heroic Time Leaper. As a result, Takemichi teams up with Kisaki due to their similar goals of wanting to stop the Black Dragons.
At the end of Chapter 86 in the manga, Tetta asks Hanagaki if he can join in on the plan to take down the rival group, but Chifuyu denies his request because of his hatred towards him. Still, Kisaki persuades the two characters by mentioning that the other Toman leaders won’t be able to help since they have to uphold a truce between the two gangs. Furthermore, he believes that Mikey’s current state is weak, and it won’t take long for the Black Dragons to overpower him and the clan.
Matsuno and Hanagaki eventually accept the alliance invitation because of their mission to change the bad future. Nonetheless, since Kisaki is a conniving brat, he reveals that this ordeal was actually a ploy to mess with Toman again and ultimately leaves the characters for dead after the scheme begins.
