RECAP: Akane-banashi Chapter 81 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 82
It’s revealed that Chocho’s performance artist quirk is that he leaves the choice of his stories down to the roll of the dice. This is nothing new in the performance arts, with John Cage being an iconic composer both famous and infamous for his compositions, the most controversial being 4’33”, a completely silent music piece.
Regardless of how pretentious one might consider this style, the audience adores the whimsy, as Chocho tells his story with a flair that Akane’s mentors note is similar to her own. She could learn from his particularly freeform style, but should she take that chance? Find out with the release of Akane-banashi Chapter 82!
