Tokyo Tribes is the English title of the seinen manga series Tokyo Tribe2 (トウキョウ トライブ トゥー Tōkyō Toraibu Tū?) by Santa Inoue. Tokyo Tribes was originally serialized from 1997 to 2005 in the urban fashion magazine boon. It is a continuation of the plot in Tokyo Tribe, although many of the characters from that story do not appear in this series.


Five years after the Shibuya riots, the Tribes of Tokyo have been enjoying a period of relative peace, until Kim and two other members of the Musashino Saru intrude on the territory of the Wu-Ronz in Bukuro. Mera, the leader of Wu-Ronz kills the three Saru, under the assumption that they were members of the Shibuya Saru.

Two days later, after searching for who killed his friends, Musashino Saru member Kai runs into Mera. Old friends in their high school days, the two get into a confrontation that ends up leaving Tera, the leader of Musashino Saru, dead and setting the stage for violence between the Tribes.

  • Kai Deguchi (出口 海 Deguchi Kai?)—a DJ and main character of the series.
  • Big Daddy (ビッグ・仏波 Biggu Buppa?) The leader of the Buppa clan and the main antagonist of the series, Buppa is shown as a big, morbidly obese, bisexual Yakuza crime lord with a lecherous, sadistic personality.
