Ai Hoshino (voiced by Rie Takahashi) is the legendary idol from the Oshi no Ko anime which is animated by studio Doga Kobo (Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie).

The official website describes the figure:
Her bright outfit, dynamic posing, and the flow of her hair make this a gem with a lovely finish. Her distinct eyes have also been faithfully recreated, capturing the charm of this girl who is so much more than just cute! Be sure to add B-Komachi’s center to your collection!
HiDIVE is streaming the anime and they describe the series as follows:
