Oshi no Ko Chapter 121 Recap, Spoilers, and What to Expect in Chapter 122
This chapter is a rough one to read, in how it examines Ruby’s repressed pain from her previous life as Sarina Tendouji. Stricken by cancer at a young age, at first her parents were steadfast to support her, but quickly were overwhelmed at the prospect of losing their child.
Ruby comes to terms with how painful it was to suddenly feel abandoned by her mother, who put up her walls and didn’t even attend to Sarina in her final moments. It’s heartbreaking and is sure to serve as valuable motivation for Ruby as an actor. That is if she can get out of what is looking like a severe depressive episode by the end.
There’s still lots to be seen in this arc, and seeing Crow Girl again narrate Sarina’s story tells us that perhaps Ruby will encounter this character more directly again as Aqua has.
Update: It turns out the raw scans are out and it’s looking like a big reveal, with Aqua and Ruby possibly discovering their connection through their mutual previous lives. Until then, we have a 2-week hiatus before the release of Oshi no Ko Chapter 122!
