[Tokyo Revengers] Shinichiro Sano’s death scene! What was the reason for his dead?

[Tokyo Revengers] Shinichiro Sano's death scene! What was the reason for his dead?(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

In the story of Tokyo Revengers, Shinichiro Sano is a character who has already died.

Shinichiro’s death scene is depicted in chapter 44-45 of volume 6 of the manga, shortly after the formation of Tokyo Manji gang (in the summer of 2003).

 

The reason for Shinichiro Sano’s death is that the then Kazutora Hanemiya struck him in the head with a wire cutter.

He died almost instantly, and the moment after Kazutora hit him he was no longer breathing.

 

Let’s take a closer look at how and why this happened, and the circumstances leading up to Shinichiro Sano’s death.

[Tokyo Revengers] How did Shinichiro Sano die? What happened at that time?

As I mentioned earlier, Shinichiro Sano died at the hands of Kazutora Hamiya, but let me explain how the tragedy came to be.

The background to the tragedy was that Mikey didn’t have a motorbike at that time.

Mikey only had a scooter.

In the 43rd chapter of the 6th volume of the manga, there was a reminiscence scene where Keisuke Baji talked about the time when Tokyo Manji gang was still in its infancy.

Mikey and his friends went touring in Yokohama, but because Mikey was the only one riding a scooter, the other members couln’t go very fast lol.

 

The reason why Mikey didn’t have a motorbike was because of his insistence that he only wanted to ride CB250T Hawk, and he named this scooter “Hawk Maru” after CB250T Hawk.

Seeing Mikey like this, Kazutora suggested to Keisuke Baji that he should give Mikey CB250T Hawk for his birthday.

Keisuke Baji and Kazutora Hanemiya sneaked into the S.S. MORTORS to steal a motorbike.

At this time, Kazutora and Baji were in their first year of junior high school, so of course they had no money to buy a motorbike.

So Kazutora brought Baji to a motorbike shop called “S.S. MORTORS” and suggested that they steal a motorbike that was on display there.

 

Normally, stealing a whole bike is super big deal, but Kazutora has done his homework on this shop and has come up with a plan.

  1. Breaking the back door window to gain entry
  2. They had ten minutes to get in before the alarm went off and the security company arrived.
  3. Cutting the chain lock on CB250T with wire cutters
  4. He made sure the key was left in the lock.
  5. Opening the shutters and escape in CB250T

It’s such a big theft that even Baji thought it’s a bad idea and kept blurting it out, but he was carried away by Kazutora and carried out the plan.

After successfully breaking into the shop, Kazutora and Baji cut the chain lock of CB250T, and all they have to do is raise the shutter and escape in CB250T.

But then the manager of “S.S. MORTORS” appeared with a huge spanner, and it turned out to be Mikey’s brother, Shinichiro Sano.

 

In fact, the S-S in “S-S MORTORS” is the initials of “Shinichiro Sano“, and this motorbike shop was run by Shinichiro Sano, Mikey’s brother.

Incidentally, Shinichiro Sano and Keisuke Baji knew each other, and Shinichiro Sano said “Keisuke?”.

 

Then Kazutora, who didn’t know that the manager was Mikey’s brother, ran up behind Shinichiro with a running start.

Kazutora Hanemiya stroke Shinichiro Sano on the back of the head with a tool and killed him.

When the manager of the motorbike shop saw him, he got impatient and ran up behind Shinichiro Sano and hit him in the head with a pair of wire cutters.

This leads to the scene of Shinichiro’s death, and after hitting him, Kazutora heard from Baji for the first time that “Shinichiro is Mikey’s brother“.

But it was too late, Shinichiro Sano’s head was bleeding profusely and he was not breathing.

 

After this, the police arrived and took Kazutora and Baji away, and Shinichiro died.

CB250T in the shop was a present which Shinichiro Sano intended to give to Mikey.

CB250T that Kazutora and Baji tried to steal and gve to Mikey as a present, actually belonged to Shinichiro Sano and was meant to be a present for Mikey’s birthday.

In other words, Kazutora and Baji didn’t need to steal that CB250T to give it to Mikey on his birthday.

 

This is the most depressing part of Shinichiro Sano’s death, as Kazutora’s misguided actions had led to an irreversible outcome.

[Tokyo Revengers] How old was Shinichiro Sano when he died? What was the date of his death?

Shinichiro Sano was 24 years old when he died and he and Mikey were 10 years apart.

Also, the date of Shinichiro Sano’s death (the anniversary of his death) is the 13th of August 2003. This is the day of the Obon Festival in Japan, so Mikey, Emma and the others will remember it every year.

 

In the story, it is mentioned that Mikey has been in love with Shinichiro Sano since he was a child, and Mikey’s feelings for Shinichiro Sano have remained unchanged since his death.

It’s hard to imagine the shock he felt when his brother died in that way, at the hands of his own comrade Kazutora.

[Tokyo Revengers] Is the death of Shinichiro Sano the cause of Mikey’s dark fall?

We have discussed the death scene of Shinichiro Sano, the reason for his death, and the events leading up to his death.

The death of Shinichiro Sano was an extremely significant event for Mikey, but it is also an important element in the story of the Tokyo Revengers.

 

In the 200th chapter of the 23rd volume of the manga, there is a scene where Mikey left a story about the “black impulsivity” on the tape recorder he left in his time capsule, and the future Takemichi watched it.

This is a kind of “uncontrollable other personality” inside Mikey, and these three people were the ones who suppressed this “black impulsivity“.

  • Shinichiro Sano
  • Emma Sano
  • Keisuke Baji

However, with the death of all three, including Shinichiro Sano, there is no one left to stop Mikey’s falling into darkness.

 

It seems that the death of Shinichiro Sano was the first step towards Mikey’s future of darkness.
