It looks like in every musical I listen to, I keep seeing some parallels with Akechi. This time it’s “Words Fail” from Dear Evan Hansen. I can’t help but think of how a lot of the lyrics to this song could apply to Akechi too.
Coincidentally, both Evan and Akechi were raised by single moms because their fathers left them. Although Evan definitely had a happier relationship with his mom who thought her son was the best thing that ever happened to her. As opposed to Akechi who was seen as a bastard child that brought shame.
