Following the life of Kuromiya Rei is the story of Houkago No Idol Ni Wa Himitsu Ga Aru. She is a fifteen-year-old idol. Hiruno Hizashi is another main lead of the story who is fascinated by watching this idol friend of his life, her very strict life. This boy does not study well and does not play any sports either.
His parents always scold him, saying he is good for nothing. On the other hand, watching his classmate thrive and earn the love of the nation, he grows quite envious. However, this is only until he finds out the bitter truth behind the life of an idol and what they have to go through.
From the first day of high school, he was troubled by the fact that an idol was studying with him. But now that he knows what happens behind the stage, he feels rather pity and empathetic.
Are you not curious about how this teenage girl manages to do everything right? So, come along to find out how Kuromiya Rei excels in everything she does.
Previously, in Houkago No Idol Ni Wa Himitsu Ga Aru Chapter 18, we saw the daily vlog of Kuromiya Rei that she was shooting. After waking up, she first washes her face. For breakfast, she always has overnight oatmeal, after which she goes for a thirty-minute run.
Sometimes, Kuromiya Rei ends up skipping school because of work. This is the life of Kuromiya Rei, an idol. She is known to have a smart personality and does her job very carefully and properly. On the days she misses school, Sakamoto Kun misses her the most.
There is now only a little time left until the final exams. Though she is going through a hard time, she makes it impossible for people around her to notice.
Maybe this is the normal life of an idol, but maybe not. One thing for sure is that by trying to escape from scandals at school as well as at work, she is living a strict life. Though her manager tries to help her out, she does not really share her problems with anyone.
What To Expect From The Upcoming Chapter?
In the next part of the story, Sakamoto Kun, genuinely worried about Rei and sensing she’s going through a tough time, decides to reach out to her. He suggests they meet up for a casual chat or a friendly outing, creating a comfortable space for Rei to open up.
During their time together, Sakamoto Kun expresses his care for Rei and subtly encourages her to share what’s been on her mind. Their meeting deepens their connection, providing Rei with a supportive friend outside of the pressures of her idol life.
At the same time, Rei is faced with a crucial decision regarding a potential opportunity that could significantly impact her career. This decision prompts her to reevaluate her priorities and the sacrifices she’s been making. The tension increases as final exams approach, and Rei realizes she can’t keep avoiding her problems.
The story takes a turn as Rei, influenced by Sakamoto Kun’s kindness and support, considers opening up to someone for the first time. This shift sets the stage for Rei’s journey of self-discovery, challenging the strict boundaries she’s set for herself and paving the way for personal growth and meaningful connections.
