Akane-banashi Chapter 86 Recap and Spoilers

This chapter focuses on Hikaru and Koguma, along with the rest of the New Breeze as they see who can put on the best performance among them. Unlike Akane’s shows, their audiences fill their auditoriums and streaming queues, and each of them brings interesting stories to the stage.

Hikaru struggles to keep up with the group and witnesses Koguma transform into a charismatic performer for the audience. It turns out that while Rakugoka can pull often from the same relatively small pool of stories handed down to their generation, Koguma went one step further and researched lost stories to dazzle the crowds. It allows him to embody an immortal niche, an aficionado for the classics. We’ll see where this goes in the release of Akane-banashi Chapter 87!
