Buckle up, idol fans. Looks like Oshi no Ko will be here soon. If you didn’t know, the team at Doga Kobo has been working on an Oshi no Ko anime for quite some time now. Ahead of the premiere, the show just dropped a new poster and trailer to fans, and they show why Oshi no Ko is stepping away from the regular idol series.
As you can see above, the Oshi no Ko trailer introduces the world to Aqua and Ruby along with their mother, Ai. Things seem simple enough in this trailer as Oshi no Ko brings fans into a world of glamorous idols and untouchable talent. However, things take a turn when murder and reincarnation become involved. Japan’s biggest idol ends up giving birth to reincarnated twins before they are killed, and it falls to her children to find out who killed the star.

They penned Oshi no Ko with Mengo Yokoyari under Shueisha, so it looks like Jump Comics is about to welcome another hit to TV. The publisher also welcomes other films such as Hell’s Paradise: Jigokuraku to TV as MAPPA Studio is overseeing the animation. So if you’re not getting ready for the Spring 2023 season, you better get your schedule together ASAP.
