The upcoming Oshi no Ko anime adaptation opened its official YouTube channel on Friday. A live stream is scheduled to announce new information on December 11, 2022, at 8 p.m. JST. The anime’s premiere date is set for 2023. Rie Takahashi, best known for her roles as Megumin in Konosuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World and Emilia in Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World, is voicing Ai in the anime adaptation and will attend the program, along with others.
The Oshi no Ko anime was announced in June 2022. Doga Kobo is currently working on the anime adaptation based on Kaguya-sama: Love is War manga author Aka Akasaka’s manga of the same name serialized with art by Mengo Yokari, who is best known for her manga series Scum’s Wish in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine.
Yen Press licensed the manga for English releases and describes the plot of the first volume as:
Gorou is a gynecologist and idol fan who’s in shock after his favorite star, Ai, announces an impromptu hiatus. Little does Gorou realize that he’s about to forge a bond with her that defies all common sense! Lies are an idol’s greatest weapon in this outrageous manga from Aka Akasaka (Kaguya-sama: Love is War) and Mengo Yokoyari (Scum’s Wish).
