Yasuhiro Muto, a.k.a. Mucho, has his death scene depicted in chapter 206 of volume 23 of the manga.

The timeline of chapter 206 is six months after the “Kanto Incident”, in the summer of 2006.

Mucho was arrested as one of the ringleaders of the “Kanto Incident”, and when he was released from prison, his former vice-captain, Haruchiyo Sanzu, came to greet him, but this was not to thank Mucho for his release, but to kill him.

In the end, Mucho was cut down by Sanzu’s Japanese sword, and died at Pier 3, the site of the decisive battle of the “Kanto Incident”.

 

Let’s take a closer look at why Sanzu killed Mucho.

[Tokyo Revengers] How Mucho (Yasuhiro Mutoh) died? Why was he killed?

As we mentioned earlier, Yasuhiro Muto, aka Mucho, dies in the story.

I will now explain in detail the events leading up to Mucho’s death and the reason why he was killed.

Let’s start by looking at the scene where Mucho left Tokyo Manji gang just before the “Kanto Incident”.

Mucho betrayed Mikey in the “Kanto Incident” and move to Tenjiku!

Just before the start of the Kanto Incident, Mucho suddenly abducted Takemichi with 5th division members.

Inupi (Seishu Inui) and Koko (Hajime Kokonoi) were also held captive, and Mucho’s goal was to take Koko to Tenjiku.

Koko’s “knowledge and ability to create money” is essential for the team’s operation, and Mucho threatens to kill Takemichi and Inupi if he doesn’t come to Tenjiku on Izana Kurokawa’s orders.

 

Incidentally, the reason why Mucho, who is supposed to be the captain of 5th division in Tokyo Manji gang, obeys Izana Kurokawa is because Mucho is also a member of the “S62 generation” like Izana Kurokawa, and he used to be loyal to Izana Kurokawa.

When Izana Kurokawa stopped his activities in the middle, Mucho was left with nothing.

And then he was committed to Tokyo Manji gang at Mikey’s invitation though, he chose to betray Mikey when Izana Kurokawa resumed his activities after all.

When Mucho betrayed Mikey and left Tokyo Manji gang to move to Tenjiku, Haruchiyo Sanzu, the vice-captain of 5th division, came with him.

The scene was depicted in chapter 206 of volume 23 of the manga, where Mucho told Sanzu to “go your own way”, and Sanzu smiled and said,

I’ll with you, boss!
I belong beside you!

From this scene alone, it seems that Sanzu is a loyal subordinate to Mucho.

 

In fact, while Mucho was the captain of 5th division in Tokyo Manji gang, Sanzu gained Mucho’s complete trust as his right-hand man.

So at this point, Mucho was unable to see through Sanzu’s true intentions.

Mucho was arrested after the Kanto Incident.

The “Kanto Incident” ended with the death of Izana Kurokawa, the executives of Tenjiku including Mucho were arrested as one of the ringleaders.

The arrests at this time were as follows.

  • Yasuhiro Muto (Mucho)
  • Kanji Mochizuki (Mocchi)
  • Ran Haitani
  • Rindou Haitani
  • Shion Madarame

Then Mucho was imprisoned for six months.

Mucho has been released from the Tokyo Metropolitan Detention Centre after six months in prison.

The day of Mucho’s release was known to the former vice-captain, Sanzu, and he picked him up in his car, saying “Congrats on your reduced sentence.”.

Then Sanzu put Mucho in the car and took him to Pier 3, the site of the decisive battle of the Kanto Incident six months earlier.

Mucho is slashed to death at the site of the decisive Battle of Kanto.

And as I mentioned earlier, when Sanzu brought Mucho to the third pier, he suddenly took out a Japanese sword and sliced Mucho in half.

The reason why Sanzu, who was portrayed as Mucho’s loyal subordinate in the story, suddenly betrayed Mucho is because Mucho betrayed Mikey.

 

In fact, in chapter 206 of volume 23 of the manga, there is a past episode between Mucho and Sanzu, and when the two were playing shogi, Sanzu said that (C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

In fact, in chapter 206 of volume 23 of the manga, there is a past episode between Mucho and Sanzu, and when the two were playing shogi, Sanzu said that “The king is more important than anything else.“.

In other words, for Sanzu, “Mikey is the absolute king“, and the reason why he was loyal to Mucho was because “Mucho is Mikey’s subordinate“.

Therefore, the fact that Mucho betrayed Mikey and left Tokyo Manji gang was something that Sanzu could never forgive, and the reason why he followed Mucho with a smile on his face was because he wanted to kill him.

 

He had been looking for an opportunity to kill Mucho ever since Mucho's descent to Tenjiku, and when Mucho was released from prison, he took the opportunity and killed him.(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

He had been looking for an opportunity to kill Mucho ever since Mucho’s descent to Tenjiku, and when Mucho was released from prison, he took the opportunity and killed him.

After being slashed twice by a sword, Mucho died without saying a word of resentment, but with tears streaming down his cheeks, thinking, “So, this is the price of my betrayal.”.

 

This scene was a tragic death scene, but it was also a scene where you could feel Mucho’s grace.

[Tokyo Revengers] Is Mucho’s death confirmed? Could he be resurrected in the future?

Now that we’ve discussed Mucho’s death scene and the reason for his death, is there any chance that Takemichi’s time leap will change the future and bring Mucho back to life?

To put it bluntly, since Mucho’s death was fixed in the past, even Takemichi’s time leap cannot change it, so there is no possibility of his resurrection.

 

Mucho died half a year after the “Kanto Incident”, so in terms of date, it was in the summer of 2006.

On the other hand, when Takemichi returned to the future after the “Kanto Incident”, he tried to go back 12 years to save Mikey in chapter 197 of volume 22 of the manga, but he could not do so because Naoto had already finished his role as a trigger.

Later, in chapter 204 of volume 23 of the manga, Takemichi used Mikey as a trigger to make a time leap, which took place in June of 2008.

In other words, two years have passed since Mucho’s death, and since Takemichi is unlikely to be able to go back in time, the possibility of Mucho’s revival has been eliminated.

Conclusion of “[Tokyo Revengers] Mucho (Yasuhiro Mutoh)’s death scene! How did he die?”

In this article, I explained the death scene, the reason for death, and the possibility of future resurrection of Yasuhiro Muto, aka Mucho of Tokyo Revengers.

Mucho was the strongest of the Tokyo Manji gang captains, and because he was older, he was a reliable figure.

He was a fearsome antagonist after his moving to Tenjiku, but his personality made him a memorable character who didn’t become a villain until the end.

I wish the world could have been a place where Mucho was still alive…
