In Akane-banashi Chapter 79, a path is set down for Akane to move up the ranks.

RECAP: Akane-banashi Chapter 79 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 80

The mysterious text message from Chapter 78 turned out to be an invitation to celebrate Asagao Konjakutei’s promotion to Futatsume. It’s met with a jubilant response from Akane, while Karashi is dismissive of the news. But even more grating to Karashi is how his peers are advancing.

Meanwhile, Akane is being increasingly recognized for her talents as an opening act, as well as the adoption of other techniques like the Taiko drum and traditional dance. It’s clear she wants to advance to Futatsume too, but there’s one obstacle: she needs the seal of approval from one of the Arakawa Arch Four. Many have shown unresponsive to her, but there’s one avenue, Taizen Arakawa, which could be her way in.

To sweeten the potential of this pursuit, it’s revealed that Akane’s father had a connection, “Three Futatsume Musketeers” with Taizen back in the day. The chapter closes as the person closing the Rakugo event is the third of the Musketeers, Chocho Konjakutei, perhaps Akane’s way to make a case for herself to Taizen!
