RECAP: Akane-banashi Chapter 78 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 79
Karashi Nerimaya is the focus of this chapter, his raw talents often only being undermined by his profound lack of motivation. He seeks to only challenge himself, yet he lacks focus. Despite this, his knack for picking up additional skills pulls him through and allows him to coast through a commemorative speech for a company celebrating 100 years of its history.
Karashi does this by using Kodan storytelling instead of pure Rakugo, which the crowd adores. It allows for an in-depth examination of the history while entertaining the attendees with the facts, a sort of dramatic reading instead of general storytelling. But this deviation is noted by his master for whom he is essentially performing an opening act, who reminds him that he must not be outdone by younger upstarts in the field. The chapter closes with his phone being bombarded with messages of a new development, so stay tuned for what’s next!
