The anime adaptation of the manga series written by Aka Akasaka and illustrated by Mengo Yokoyari is being produced by the studio Doga Kobo and directed by Daisuke Hiramaki, known for his work on Asteroid in Love.
Oshi no Ko is a fascinating, emotionally tense, honest, and often brutal inside look into the world of Japanese pop idols and acting, all told from a partial isekai viewpoint.
What Is Oshi No Ko All About?
The story follows the life of a young girl named Nagisa Tsutsumi, who dreams of becoming a manga artist. She meets a popular male idol named Itsuki Aoyama, who becomes her inspiration and muse. The two form an unlikely friendship as they work together to achieve their dreams.

Aqua’s twin sister, Ruby, is the daughter of Itsuki Aoyama, and the two grow up together as siblings. The story explores the relationship between the two siblings as they navigate the complicated world of show business and try to make it as idols.

Oshi No Ko Trailer
The most current trailer for Oshi no Ko immediately introduces the hapless protagonist, Dr. Gorou, who coos over his hospital’s newest patient, pop diva Ai Hoshino. The caravan starts off bright and innocent, concentrating on the ostensibly benign and charming aspect of the idol industry while masterfully concealing the horror beneath.
The teaser doesn’t reveal any of the giant narrative twists that put the tale into action but given how Kaguya-legendary sama’s writer Aka Akasaka created Oshi no Ko, even new fans can be certain that this anime will be more than it appears on the surface.
The trailer for Oshi no Ko also introduces the Hoshino family, which consists of infant and toddler twin siblings named Aqua and Ruby, and child actor Kana Arima, who is around their age.
Additionally, the trailer features a captivating performance by Ai, a young idol mother, with a hooded figure making dramatic gestures in the moonlight, suggesting a stark contrast between the bright and dark aspects of the idol industry.
