Negai no Astro Chapter 7 recap

Picking up the events from the previous chapter, Negai no Astro Chapter 7 opens with Kuran recalling his true self, thanks to Kou. The boy wanted to smile again, which is why he received a transformation power.

Kuran tells Hibaru that taking on Botan's role was an immense pressure for him. Deep down, he wanted to change. Hibaru reminds him that he can let everything go and join him.

While Kuran doesn't mind joining Hibaru's forces, he is worried about the well-being of Sanmenroppi and the Club Asura at Ikebukuro. However, they assure the boy that he doesn't need to worry about them.

At the same time, Terasu feels that Kou must have struggled alone as well. Since the Sanmenroppi treated him like Botan's little brother, and not as a person, Kou must have wanted to destroy that and come out of the pigeonhole.

Meanwhile, Kou regains consciousness. He tells Kuran to go away since the Ikebukuro now belongs to him. Even though his words don't match his feelings, Kou assures Hibaru that he will do his part and work for him and the Ikebukuro.

He also requests the boy to take care of Kuran. Following that, the members of the Sanmenroppi grandly send off their previous leader. Kou shouts at him, saying he better return the next time with a smile.

At that moment, Kuran uses his Cheshire Astro to transform into his younger self, because otherwise he cannot express his emotions.

He assures Kuran that one day, he will return with a genuine smile on his face. Until then, he asks the boy to take care of Ikebukuro for him. The chapter ends with Hibaru suggesting they create a new faction, under the name, Hibaru Faction.

Negai no Astro Chapter 8 will likely show Hibaru Yotsurugi creating a new faction with Terasu and Kuran. Aside from that, he will look to strengthen the faction with more members.

On the other side, Shio will probably learn about Hibaru's faction, and do something about it. In any case, Negai no Astro Chapter 8 may focus on story building.
