Thus, here is all you need to know about Ao Ashi Chapter 318 release date and plot.
Next time in Ao Ashi, the panels will continue with a flashback of the past. Fukuda was yet to take action against the racial slurs. But will he let it go this time? Keep reading to find out more!
Ao Ashi Chapter 318: What Will Happen Next?
The title of Ao Ashi Chapter 318 is not out yet. However, it will center on Ehime Prefecture. The chapter will provide some much-appreciated distance from action, which is somewhat of a rarity in the plot of Ao Ashi and other sports anime. It has been a long time since Fukuda last came here. Hana also likes this place and compares it to the Sabadell. The last chapter ended on an emotional note where Fukuda recalled some tragic past events.
However, now that Hana is in Ehime, he will take her to the tourist attraction sites. The town is far from what Hana will have imagined. At first she thought it was a small village with cows and bullocks. But her views are changing with each passing moment. Before leaving for Spain, the duo will pack some memories from this place. Chapter 318 will reset the step siblings’ mood. They will also visit Fukuda’s father’s grave and pray for him at the end of the day.
A Quick Recap!
The title of Ao Ashi Chapter 317 was ‘Chino.’ The chapter opened up in Matsuyama. Ashito was born and raised in the Ehime region. Therefore, curious Hana tagged along with Fukuda to visit this place before he left for the next game. Hana told Fukuda that Ehime was a really tranquil place. Her eyes could gaze as far she wanted. Fukuda replied that this was due to the absence of tall city skyscrapers. And days passed here slowly compared to Tokyo.
As Hana went on to compare the town with Sabadell, it brought some unpleasant memories back. The flashback went to ten years back in Spain. Fukuda was really excited to play with his Spanish teammates. However, he was insecure about his language barrier. He thought that all he had to do was play football. But things turned out quite differently. The players at the match treated him like trash and were even racist. They called him Chino. But Fukuda was unaware of what it meant. Later he found out that they were insulting his Asian background.
