After the previous chapter of the previous chapter, the plot suddenly shifts to Mikey’s childhood. We see his father giving him a toy figure with a smile. His father tells him that the toy character is a strong and cool superhero. Tragically, he lost him in a car accident when he was only three years old.
As days go by, we see Mikey beating up students from elementary school who consider themselves strong. Mikey said that he hates the underdogs right after that. After this incident, we see him visit his mother in a hospital. When he shared with her how his day was, he said he hit some students hard. Surprisingly, his mother praised his behavior and called him strong, “just like his father. “
After this incident, Mikey continuously beat more students and visited his mother once a week. During one visit, he mentioned how the guys he defeated always cried after losing. His mother encouraged him again by saying that children only cry easily. Mikey then asked if his father cried easily. His mother replied that he rarely cried in public and was a hopeless man, with a smile.
Then time passed when Mikey’s brother arrived with the news about their mother. They find her in a critical condition that could end her life for the time being. So when he visited her for the last time, he told her he had another fight. He added that those who cry are simply weak. Since he is strong, he will not cry and will protect her.
However, this time his mother tells him that he is not strong because he never cries. He was even a crybaby when he was young. The next table shows us that, after three days, his mother is no more.
We see Mikey silently sobbing after losing her. He then develops a strong hatred for “the weak. “
Then we see Mikey hit Sanzu and force him to laugh as he starts to cry. Sanzu even followed his orders. We see another scenario where Baji and Mitsuya praise him for taking down three strongmen alone. By this time, Mikey had become known as one of the most powerful thugs.
They end up discussing an elementary school student with a dragon tattoo on his shrine who saved the first-year high school student from blackmailers. After a few days, he ended up stumbling across him. Mikey says he loves strong guys when he comes face to face with Draken. The chapter ends without telling us more about their interactions.
Tokyo Revengers Chap 264 Spoiler
Present, Tokyo Revengers Chap 264 spoiler has not been released yet. Usually, they take a day or two to emerge. So you just have to wait a bit. You can keep checking the internet and fandom sites so as not to miss them.
Meanwhile, let’s discuss some fan theories and predictions.
With the plot suddenly shifting to Mikey’s past, we may have a few more chapters before the plot returns to the present. The latest chapter itself mentions that we will continue to see Mikey’s past. We will see how he meets all his friends and how his life progresses.
Wakui finally gives more meaning and reason behind Mikey’s dark impulses and his personality. Mikey, in the end, turns out to be another character with a tragic past that ruined his mind and life.
Mikey’s dark impulses are more of a coping mechanism than a force. As Baji mentioned earlier, Draken is the reason Mikey is from afar more sober than before, and with the addition of Takemichi, he’s calmed down a bit. Therefore, whenever he encounters an emotionally threatening situation, his coping mechanisms activate and cause him to become confused.
Fans also couldn’t help but notice that Mikey’s dad looks exactly like Takemichi in middle age. This has given rise to a far-fetched fan theory that Mikey was the one to leapfrog when his father was still a student.
Alternatively, the more plausible hypothesis would be that Mikey and Takemichi are half-brothers. The anime’s theme song “Crybaby” is also a hint – Takemichi is a crybaby like his father, and Mikey was also a crybaby when he was young. Every coin has two sides.
However, Wakui may be cooking up all sorts of conspiracies to throw at us. So we can only wait for the upcoming chapters to tell us more.
