Negai no Astro seems to have a notable essence of Tokyo revengers, which generates divided opinions among fans who are already aware of this news. There are the fans who are quite excited about this new project of the mangaka, on the other hand, there are those who decide to say a resounding NO to the story. This is because they were not satisfied with Wakui’s work in Tokyo Revengers, arguing that it was a very long story, with certain repetitive cycles, and that its adaptation to anime after the first season did not help it to gain acceptance.

Fans express that they expect from Negai no Astro a “decent” story that is good, and that leaves aside the time travel, even thanks to social networks, it has been possible to know a little about the appearance of the new protagonist of this story, from what can be seen, will share many physical features with Mikey and Takemichi. Wakui-sensei will keep the essence of Takemichi and company, but everything indicates that he may be taking everything supernatural beyond the time travel of his previous protagonist.

An interesting fact about this new news is that this time Ken Wakui is not part of Kodansha, the publishing house that was responsible for publishing Tokyo Revengers in its entirety. The author decides to try his luck in another big publisher of the manga industry, the well-known Shueisha, where Wakui will be publishing this new project. Finally, Negai No Astro will debut on the cover of the 20th volume of Weekly Shonen Jump this year, which will also have a color main page, so fans will be able to know this new story sooner rather than later.
