Oshi no Ko might be getting a second season! Can you believe it? A leaker on Weibo spilled the beans that the anime adaptation of Aka Akasaka’s manga, illustrated by Mengo Yokoyari, is set to have a second season. Now, this news came as quite a surprise, especially since the series is still airing. Who would have thought that the confirmation would come right after the final episode in June? Talk about keeping us on the edge of our seats!

It’s no secret that the anime adaptation has had a positive impact on the original manga’s sales. But announcing a second season so soon implies that it was probably planned from the moment they decided on the first season. Let’s just hope they don’t rush the production and that Doga Kobo can maintain a high-quality and long-lasting series. It’s been a while since they’ve had a show with staying power.

Oshi no Ko

Currently, Oshi no Ko is airing in Japan since April 12th, and it’s confirmed to have a total of eleven episodes. HIDIVE is handling the distribution of the series in the West. As for the manga, Akasaka and Yokoyari started its publication in April 2020 in Weekly Young Jump magazine, published by Shueisha. Akasaka, known for Kaguya-sama: Love is War, writes the story, while Yokoyari, who worked on Kuzu no Honkai, provides the illustrations.

He promises her a safe delivery, but little does he know that an encounter with a mysterious figure would result in his untimely demise—or so he thought.

When Gorou opens his eyes, he finds himself in the arms of his beloved idol, reborn as Aquamarine Hoshino, Ai’s newborn son! Talk about a wild twist of fate. As Gorou adjusts to his turned-upside-down world, he soon discovers that the entertainment industry is full of thorns, and talent doesn’t always guarantee success. Will he be able to protect the smile of his beloved idol?
