Aqua is moving forward with a new plan after being emboldened in his quest for vengeance. The latest project: create a film based on the story of Ai Hoshino, and hatch a plan to draw in the man responsible for her murder. It’s a bold one, which will put Aqua and his sister Ruby in the spotlight, and a potentially costly one. But in the release of Oshi no Ko Chapter 117, we’ll see the results begin to form as the casting of Ai’s actor is concluded.

The role of Ai is all but decided. What’s more, Aqua is content with burning bridges in the process of tracking down his idol’s murderer.

Oshi no Ko Chapter 116 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 117

The script for the biopic film, 15-Year Lie, is seen as a scathing indictment of the person responsible for the death of Ai Hoshino. But Ai’s prospective actors, Frill, Akane, and Ruby, quickly understand that to make this film, they must embody Ai’s intentions.

Ruby quickly acknowledges this as her chance to take revenge. Akane, her best challenger, realizes how important the role is to Ruby, despite the idol’s lack of acting experience. But she also has different motives as to why she emotionally drops out of the race: she wishes to stop Aqua’s plan to draw out Ai’s killer.

But Aqua, despite knowing Akane wants to stop him, is heading past his point of no return. What this means for him and the killer is anybody’s guess for now.

This latest chapter was read through the Manga Plus reader app on Android.
