Oshi No Ko Season 2 renewal has been announced!
The entertainment world is filled with glamour and fame, but a scratch beneath the surface lies a hollowed façade of pretentious people who are worshipped as idols.
The saying “Don’t peek behind the curtain and never meet your heroes” is a truthful amalgamation of the entertainment world.
Aka Akasaka s’ massively popular manga series Oshi no Ko or Their Idol’s Children portrays the realities of the idol and theatre industry in an open view.
The story follows a sixteen-year-old teen idol and sensation Ai Hoshino who gets pregnant with twins. This untimely incident forces her and jeopardizes her career as a young idol can’t be seen bearing kids.
Despite her manager and company rebuking her, she decides to keep her kids and arrives at the hospital of Gorou to give birth.
Gorou Amemiya is a 30-year-old doctor who became a massive fan of Ai after a 12-year-old patient named Sarina who used to adore her but eventually died.
On a side note, we can see the glitter in Gorou s’ eyes from the Oshi no Ko trailer on seeing her idol as Ai states, “ You are hopelessly an idol, and I am hopelessly your captive.”
Before Gorou can perform the operation, he is killed by an anonymous stalker and is reincarnated into Hoshino Aquamarine, the son of Ai.
He is born alongside his twin sister Ruby Hoshino who grows up to be a loudmouth and extrovert girl striving to be an idol like her mom.
From a thirty-year-old doctor to a baby in the lap of his idol and his mother Gorou, aka Hoshino Aquamarine s’ life has turned upside down.
Will the cutthroat entertainment industry and the fans accept Ai s’ kids? How will Aquamarine Hoshino, along with his sister Ruby Hoshino grow up and protect their mother while surviving the showbiz world is the central plot of the show?
