KADOKAWA announced on Friday that a huge Oshi no Ko fan event “Ichigo Production Fan Festival 2023” will be live-streamed and archived for fans in select countries outside Japan to watch.

The archive video will be available from December 3 until December 10 and with English subtitles.
The performers of the event include Rie Takahashi, Takeo Otsuka, Yurie Igoma, Megumi Han, Manaka Iwami, Rumi Okubo, and Kent Ito.
Oshi no Ko anime is based on manga written by Aka Asaka with illustrations drawn by Mengo Yokoyari. The anime aired from April to June with 11 episodes in total. Studio Doga Kobo (Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie) animated the first season with Daisuke Hiramaki (Selection Project) as director and a second season is currently in production. The synopsis of the series is as follows:
When a pregnant young starlet appears in Gorou Amemiya’s countryside medical clinic, the doctor takes it upon himself to safely (and secretly) deliver Ai Hoshino’s child so she can make a scandal-free return to the stage. But no good deed goes unpunished, and on the eve of her delivery, he finds himself slain at the hands of Ai’s deluded stalker — and subsequently reborn as Ai’s child, Aquamarine Hoshino! The glitz and glamor of showbiz hide the dark underbelly of the entertainment industry, threatening to dull the shine of his favorite star. Can he help his new mother rise to the top of the charts? And what will he do when an unthinkable disaster strikes?
