Right after Koko kissed Inupi, he broke down crying and said “Akane“.

Akane is Inui’s sister and her real name is Akane Inui. The truth is that Koko used to like Akane, and Inui’s face was similar to Akane’s, so he kissed him without thinking.

It’s not that Koko had abnormal feelings for Inui, it’s just that he had a painful experience in the past.

We’ll talk more about Koko’s past later.

As mentioned above, the reason why Koko kissed Inui was not because he was doing something abnormal, but because he liked Inui’s sister, Akane.

Here is the story of how Koko liked Akane and what Akane is doing now.

In chapter 158 of volume 18 of the manga, we see an episode when Koko and Inui were in primary schools.

At this time, we can see that Koko, Inui and Akane are getting along well together, and it’s obvious that Koko likes Akane.

By the way, Akane is 5 years older than Koko and Inui, so she is in middle school or high school at this point.

Koko and Akane went to the library and Inui, who was not interested, went home first.

When they wento to the library, Akane fell asleep with a book on her pillow, and Koko, who was reading next to her, suddenly saw Akane’s sleeping face.

Then Akane suddenly said, “No can do.” and Koko backs away. To Koko , it’s like, “You’re awake!”.

Akane told Coco that “You should only kiss the person you like“, but Koko confesses, “I like you, Akane.“.

Akane didn’t answer to Koko’s confession, but when she returns home from the library, Koko told her that he is serious about his feelings, and Akane says, “Then until we grow older, I’ll wait for you.”.

Regardless of Akane’s true feelings, she seemed to have understood that Koko was serious.

Shortly after Koko confesses his feelings to Akane, he saw smoke rising on his way home.

It was indeed a fire at Akane’s house, and by the time Koko arrived, the whole house was already engulfed in flames.

Then he decided that he couldn’t wait for the fire engine to arrive in time, so he ran into the burning house to save Akane and carried her out.

But it was actually Seishu Inui who Koko has brought in, and Akane is left inside the burning house.

 

Akane was rushed to the hospital, but she has severe burns all over her body, and the doctor told them that it will cost 40 million yen(about 400 thousand dollars) to fully heal her.(C)Ken Wakui/Shueisha

Akane was rushed to the hospital, but she has severe burns all over her body, and the doctor told them that it will cost 40 million yen(about 400 thousand dollars) to fully heal her.

In order to earn money for Akane’s treatment, Koko researched “how to make money by any means” and expanded the scale of his business, but in vain, Akane died in the middle of the road.

Koko kissed Inui because he was not over Akane yet.

Going back to what I said earlier, in chapter 157 of volume 18 of the manga, Koko kisses Inui some time after Akane’s death.

Inui’s face looks just like Akane’s, so Koko puts Akane’s image on Inupi’s face. The reason why he kissed him at that time was because he had always loved Akane, and even after her death, he was still in love with her.

 

In the middle of “Kanto Incident”, Inui said to Koko,

I’m not “Akane”!
I’m “Seishu!”

So Inui seemed to have noticed that “Koko was overlapping Akane and Inui”.

In the story, Inui and Koko are characters with a dry image, but in fact they both experienced a painful past.

After the “Kanto Incident”, Inui and Koko decided to part ways and went their separate ways.

When they said goodbye to each other, they say “Thank you for everything” and “Dumb ass, likewise”, and you can feel the bond between them.

 

As of 2018, Inui is helping Draken with his motorbike shop, while Koko has become a member of Japan’s largest criminal organization, Bonten.

As for Koko, depending on how the last Arc unfolds, he may be able to return to the ordinary people.
