The main members of Bonten are first described in chapter 196 of volume 22 of the manga, where Mikey, the leader, executives and advisors were present at the scene of the traitor’s execution.

Next, let’s take a closer look at the details of each member of Bonten.

[Tokyo Revengers] The details of members of Bonten! They all have special tattoos!

Let’s take a closer look at each of the main members of Bonten that we have just listed.

Most of these main members are from Tenjiku as it was called 12 years ago, but only the leader Mikey, Manjiro Sano, is from Tokyo Manji gang.

Leader: Manjiro Sano

Leader: Manjiro Sano(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

Manjiro Sano, aka “The Invincible Mikey“, is the leader of Bonten.

Bonten is the largest criminal organization in Japan and it is said that Bonten is behind all serious crimes such as gambling, fraud, prostitution and murder.

 

After the end of the “Kanto Incident”, the big battle with Tenjiku, Mikey dissolved Tokyo Manji gang in chapter 189 of volume 22 of the manga.

Also, during the “Kanto Incident”, Tetta Kisaki died, and all Takemichi’s worries were supposed to be solved, but when he returns to the future, he finds that “Bonten“, the equivalent of the former criminal organization “Tokyo Manji gang”, has been established.

 

Takemichi meets Mikey again in the future timeline, but he is no longer the Mikey of the past, but a completely corrupted figure who shoots and kills even Takemichi without hesitation.

[Tokyo Revengers] Mikey’s future is severe! How’s Sano Manjiro’s present?

Number 2: Haruchiyo Sanzu

Number 2: Haruchiyo Sanzu(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

Bonten’s number 2 is Haruchiyo Sanzu.

Haruchiyo Sanzu was originally the vice-captain of 2nd division of Tokyo Manji gang, and then followed Mucho who moved to Tenjiku.

 

However, for Sanzu, the “king” has always been Mikey, and his loyalty is out of the ordinary.

So he pretends to follow Mucho, who betrayed Mikey and went to Tenjiku, but in reality he has been waiting for the opportunity to kill him.

On the day Mucho was released from the Tokyo Detention Center, he brought Mucho to Pier 3, the site of the decisive battle of the Kanto Incident, and killed him there with a Japanese sword.

 

Also, in 2008, Sanzu was a member of Kanto Manji gang, one of the three deities in Tokyo at the time, and has been under Mikey’s direct control since that time.

[Tokyo Revengers] Who is Sanzu? The relationship with Mikey and Bonten!

Number 3: Kakucho

Number 3: Kakucho(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

The number three of Bonten is Kakucho.

Kakucho was originally the first of the Four Heavenly Kings of Tenjiku, and was the second strongest in Tenjiku after Izana Kurokawa.

In the Kanto Incident, he was shot in the right breast by Tetta Kesaki and was almost killed, but Izana Kurokawa protected Kakucho.

Then Izana Kurokawa died and Kakucho lost a lot of blood, but he survived.

 

In the future, he is the number three of Bonten, and is one of the top executives in the organization.

Also, in the 199th chapter of the 23rd volume of the manga, the former members of Tokyo Manji gang were shown opening a time capsule, and when Kakucho saw that Mikey didn’t go there, he said “Are you sure about this? Today’s the 19th of June, you know?“.

The way he cared for Mikey shows that he still had the same sensitivity as the rest of the Bonten.

Executives: Ran Haitani

Executives: Ran Haitani(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

One of Bonten’s executives is Ran Haitani, a member of the S62 generation, known as the “generation of extreme evil”.

Originally one of the Four Heavenly Kings of Tenjiku, Ran Haitani and his brother Rindou Haitani made a perfect combination to torment Angry and Hakkai Shiba during the “Kanto Incident”.

At the age of thirteen, Ran also defeated the leader of the largest biker gang in Tokyo, Kyogoku, in an instant.

Not only that, but his younger brother, Rindou Haitani, relentlessly punched the vice president of Kyogoku in the face, causing him to die of a facial cavity and skull fracture.

This was the beginning of the “Roppongi battle of the ashes“, which became the talk of the town’s delinquents, and the beginning of the Haitani brothers’ notoriety.

 

Also he belonged to Rokuhara-Tandai in 2008, and his position was Number 2.

 

After the “Kanto Incident” they were arrested, as was Mochi, and twelve years later in the future, they are now in the dark side of Japan as executives of Bonten.

Executives: Rindou Haitani

Executives: Rindou Haitani(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

One of Bonten’s executives is Rindou Haitani, a member of the S62 generation, known as the “generation of extreme evil”.

Originally one of the Four Heavenly Kings of Tenjiku, Rindou’s fighting style is based on irregular movements and joint techniques using his extremely flexible body.

In the Kanto Incident, he overpowered Angry by breaking his right arm and left leg, but was instantly beaten up by the awakened Angry.

Like Ran Haitani, he had a past dispute with “Roppongi battle of the ashes“, and Rindou fought with the vice president of Kyogoku.

Then Rindou was about to defeat the opponent, and Ran Haitani beated him up.

Finally he died of a facial cavity and skull fracture.

 

Also he belonged to Rokuhara-Tandai in 2008, and his position was Number 3.

 

After the “Kanto Incident” he was arrested, as were Ran Haitani and Mochi, and twelve years later, in the future, he is in the dark side of Japan as an executive of Bonten.

Executives: Kanji Mochizuki

Executives: Kanji Mochizuki(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

One of Bonten’s executives is Kanji Mochizuki, also known as Mochi, and he is a member of the S62 generation, which is known as the “generation of extreme evil”.

In the past, he was sent to a juvenile reformatory for “obstruction of justice” after he beat up a policeman who tried to stop a fight.

 

Kanji Mochizuki is one of the Four Heavenly Kings of Tenjiku, and before joining Tenjiku, he was the president of a team called “Jugem“.

His personality is belligerent, and he is a man with a dynamic smile and fighting style.

In the series, Mochi’s strength and toughness are emphasised, and in the past, Smiley and Angry have been completely defeated by him.

After the “Kanto Incident” he was arrested as one of the ringleaders of the incident and we don’t know what happened to him.

 

Also he belonged to Rokuhara-Tandai in 2008, and his position was Number 4.

His personality and strength are not changed as before.

 

In the future, he is a much changed man, and the sight of the execution of the traitor doesn’t faze him one bit, and he looks so familiar that he says “Crush and freeze it. Turn it into fish bait.”.

Executives: Hajime Kokonoi

Executives: Hajime Kokonoi(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

One of Bonten’s executives is Hajime Kokonoi, also known as Coco.

Originally, Coco was the captain of Black Dragon’s guards led by Taiju Shiba, and later joined the Tokyo Manji gang’s first divison with Seishu Inui.

However, due to threats from Mucho, he moved to Tenjiku, and after the “Kanto Incident”, he and Inui went their separate ways.

 

Then, in 2008, he became a member of Kanto Manji gang, one of the three deities in Tokyo at the time, and together with Sanzu, he became Mikey’s direct subordinate.

 

Ten years later, he became an executive of Bonten, and is thought to be supporting Bonten with his wealth.

Executives: Takeomi Akashi

Executives: Takeomi Akashi(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

Bonten’s advisor is Takeomi Akashi.

Takeomi Akashi first appeared in the manga in volume 22, chapter 196, and is not a former member of Tokyo Manji gang or Tenjiku.

 

Actually he was number 2 of Brahman in 2008. So he used to fight with Mikey, Sanzu, Ran, Rindou and Mochi.

 

Given his position in Bonten as “advisor“, he is thought to be well versed in the ways of Bonten’s evil deeds and has a wealth of connections behind the scenes.

[Tokyo Revengers] What do the symbols and tattoos of Bonten’ members mean? The motif is Izana Kurokawa’s hair ornament?

[Tokyo Revengers] What do the symbols and tattoos of Bonten' members mean? The motif is Izana Kurokawa's hair ornament?(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

Takemichi first learned of the existence of Bonten when he watched a TV news program. At that time, he saw a special symbol tattooed on the back of the chieftain’s neck.

Takemichi felt that he had seen this mark and tattoo somewhere before, and when he saw Hina’s earrings, it hit him.

 

The pattern of the tattoo is the same as the hair ornament Izana Kurokawa once wore.(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

The pattern of the tattoo is the same as the hair ornament Izana Kurokawa once wore.

Izana Kurokawa used to have this goal as the president of Tenjiku.

  • Tenjiku will fight against the adult underworld.
  • Tenjiku will control all the darkness in Japan.

Mikey, who has become the head of Bonten, may have this tattoo to mean that he has inherited Izana Kurokawa’s will.

To begin with, Mikey’s current hairstyle is the same as Izana Kurokawa’s at that time, so he is obviously aware of Izana Kurokawa’s existence.

 

By the way, this tattoo is not only Mikey's, but also all the other executives have it on their bodies.(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

By the way, this tattoo is not only Mikey’s, but also all the other executives have it on their bodies.

I think they have this tattoo as a sign of his loyalty to Mikey, and as a sign that they are a member of Bonten, but this makes it obvious that they are a member of Bonten.

[Tokyo Revengers] Kanto Manji gang will be Bonten in the future? What do the members have in common?(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

In the 24th volume of the manga, chapter 207, we see Mikey in 2008 (two years after the Kanto Incident), and at that time he was the president of a team called the “Kanto Manji gang“.

Also Haruchiyo Sanzu and Hajime Kokonoi also belonged Kanto Manji gang, and it seems to be the predecessor organization of Bonten.

From here, over the course of 10 years, it grew into the largest criminal organization in Japan called “Bonten“.

 

Then, in chapter 234 of Tokyo Revengers, Kanto Manji gang absorbed Rokuhara-Tantai.

So the members of Kanto Manji gang is close to Bonten gradually.

[Tokyo Revengers] What is the origin of the name of Bonten? Is there a connection between the members?

The word “Bonten” is a Buddhist term.

In Buddhism, “Bonten” refers to one of the Buddhas in the heavenly realms, and is the ancient Indian god “Brahma”, which was adopted into Buddhism.

 

Also in Hinduism, “Brahma” is one of the three great gods, and when we think of the three great gods, we remember the “Three Deities” of 2008.

In other words, the 2008 Kanto Manji gang, Rokuhara-Tandai, and Brahman are considered to be the “Three Deities” in analogy with the “Three Great Gods” in Hinduism, and it is thought that Brahman eventually merged with the other teams to become Bonten.

In fact, you can watch this video to learn more about this area.

Conclusion of “[Tokyo Revengers] Bonten’s members! Their tattoo and symbol are alike Izana’s earing!”

In this article, I explained the list of members of Bonten, the details of each member, and the meaning of the symbol and tattoo on Izana Kurokawa’s earring.

It is a criminal organization that appeared just when we thought the “Kanto Incident” was over and finally settled down, and we can see that it is a huge evil from the scene of shooting traitors.

I wouldn’t want to get involved with such a horrible organization in real life either.
