Asou and Shitara get some screen time in this chapter and here’s a non-spoilerish tidbit from one of the spinoff doujinshi.
Tidbit about Asou and Shitara
Remember how Shitara used to work at the Asahi TV HQ before he was shipped off to one of their affiliates? Well, Asou and Shitara are really thick as thieves, since they’ve known each from that time. They chat together like close buddies, like how Shitara’s love life is going, like how Asou firmly believes that Shitara will come back to HQ, and Asou is amazingly supportive about everything (well, supportive like a bro, lol). Even when Asou tells Shitara about his cancer, he’s still giving Shitara advice to go for the person he loves. Shitara never reveals any details about his love life, but Asou probably guesses who it is. Their little short story made me so happy to read and made me appreciate Asou a lot more!
