Excitement rippled through the otaku community on Sunday as the announcement of Oshi no Ko’s second season echoed through the halls of the Ichigo Production ☆ Fan Appreciation Festival 2023. The popular anime, a joint venture between Netflix and HIDIVE, has not only captured the hearts of fans with its gripping storyline but has also made history as the most successful series launch on HIDIVE.

Fans were treated to a sneak peek into the upcoming season with a tantalizing teaser trailer and a stunning new promotional poster. The visual feast left enthusiasts buzzing with anticipation, eager to delve back into the unpredictable world of Oshi no Ko. The premier date, set for 2024, has become a beacon of hope for fans craving more of the unique blend of idol anime, murder mystery, and supernatural intrigue that defines the series.

HIDIVE, which broadcasted the first season in the United States, has already confirmed its commitment to airing the second season. In Japan, Netflix is expected to continue its partnership with the anime, building on the success of the first season that captivated audiences worldwide.

Oshi no Ko’s journey began in 2020 as a manga penned by the creative duo Aka Akasaka (known for Kaguya-sama: Love is War) and Mengo Yokoyari (renowned for Scum’s Wish). Published in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump, the manga’s popularity transcended borders, leading to digital publication in English through Shueisha’s MANGA Plus platform.

The anime adaptation, which premiered on April 12th, 2023, comprised 11 episodes, each contributing to the series’ mystique and allure. As the narrative unfolded, viewers found themselves immersed in the gripping tale of Gynecologist Gorou Amamiya, murdered on the night he was meant to deliver the child of the famous idol Ai Hoshino. The twist came when Gorou was reincarnated as Ai’s son, Aquamarine “Aqua” Hoshino. Faced with the murder of Ai by an obsessed fan, Aqua embarks on a quest to unravel the mystery, blending elements of suspense, drama, and the supernatural.

The success of Oshi no Ko as an anime reached unprecedented heights, securing its place as HIDIVE’s most successful series launch to date. The phenomenon extended beyond Japan, with the series gaining international acclaim. The opening song, “Idol,” performed by the duo YOASOBI, made history by topping charts globally, a feat unmatched by any previous anime song.

With the second season on the horizon, fans worldwide are eagerly anticipating the continuation of Aqua’s journey and the unfolding of the captivating narrative. While the exact number of episodes in the upcoming season remains undisclosed, the manga’s rich content, spanning 13 volumes and counting, promises a wealth of material for the producers to draw from.

As the otaku community braces for the release of Oshi no Ko’s second season, the teaser trailer serves as a tantalizing glimpse into the creators’ vision. The anticipation lingers, and fans are left with bated breath, awaiting further announcements that promise to unravel more details of Aqua’s quest to solve the enigmatic murder mystery. Until then, enthusiasts can only revel in the success of the first season, participate in pop-ups, and engage in the excitement of special events that continue to spring up globally.

The legacy of Oshi no Ko is poised to endure, leaving an indelible mark on the anime landscape. As the countdown to 2024 begins, fans are united in their anticipation, eager to embark on a new chapter of mystery, intrigue, and supernatural revelations with Aquamarine “Aqua” Hoshino.
