The truth has been out for several chapters at this point for Aqua and Ruby’s parentage in Oshi no Ko. Immediately after Aqua leaked the news that Ai Hoshino was their murdered mother, their opportunities continued to rise, and it created a greater rift between the siblings than before. But, in the process, it’s enabled them to confront this trauma head-on while they pursue the truth of who is responsible for their mother’s death. In Oshi no Ko Chapter 116, we see them hopefully come a little closer upon its release.

Oshi no Ko Chapter 115 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 116

In Chapter 115 we saw Ruby coming to terms with what it would mean to play the role of Ai Hoshino in the upcoming film adaptation of her story. She wrestles with the notion of losing everyone she has loved the most while having a doomed existence in her own past life. However, giving a compelling case for her to play the role isn’t solely enough, as Akane Kurokawa once again channels the essence of Ai’s personality, starry eyes and all.

Chapter 116 will likely determine exactly that for these young actresses. Ruby, Akane, and Frill Shiranui were all hot contenders for the role of the deceased idol, but Ruby’s case might be the most cathartic of them all.

But there is something that hurts the soul of her performance, an obsession that has overtaken her much like it did for Aqua when she knew that the man responsible for her mother’s murder could be roaming free. With the release of Oshi no Ko Chapter 116, we will likely see more of this, and perhaps more of the truth surrounding the nefarious Hikaru Kamiki, the man responsible for their suffering.
